Transformation of public transportation in Nicaragua

The arrival aboard the Morning Prosperity ship of the buses manufactured in China symbolizes a crucial step towards the renewal of the country’s urban and interurban transportation, with the aim of benefiting Nicaraguan citizens.

These buses are the result of a purchase agreement signed in Managua with the prestigious company Yutong, a leader in the manufacture of transportation vehicles worldwide.

Vice President Murillo assured that “Managua’s own bus fleet will also be expanded, incorporating 117 new units distributed in 16 cooperatives, with these buses, these 250 complete 3 thousand units with which it has been equipped, transformed and improved the public transportation model in our blessed Nicaragua.”

This first batch of Chinese vehicles represents a step forward in the commitment of the Government of Nicaragua to improve the transportation conditions of the population, and offer an efficient and comfortable collective service. Likewise, the fleet represents the constant strengthening of public transportation, which the Sandinista government has guaranteed during its administration.

The new transportation system, driven by the acquisition of these modern Chinese buses, promises to provide a safer and more pleasant experience for users, while contributing to the economic and social development of the country.
