Mexico’s ADO ready to drive on Belize Roads

Mexican transportation giant ADO begins its long distance bus runs to Cancun and Merida from Belize City tonight.  Although the excursions are part of a marketing research being conducted by the company an official launch remains pending.  In the meantime, the runs are being tested to ensure the quality of service that ADO will be offering to commuters that will be making the non-stop journey to both destinations north of the border.  Two buses are scheduled to depart from the terminal near East Canal at eight and nine o’clock respectively.  According to ADO representatives who were in Belize City today the nightly runs are not intended to compete with any of the local bus lines that operate within the northern zone.

H.E. Mario Velasquez, Mexican Ambassador

H.E. Mario Velasquez

“ADO is a Mexican enterprise and they are talking with the authorities of Belize and they are considering the convenience of receiving these Mexican buses that will be coming with tourists that come to Mexico; we will share them with Belize. That is the intension.”

Jose Sanchez

“Do they intend to take passengers from Belize to Chetumal or different parts of Mexico?

H. E. Mario Velazquez

“No that is not the intention. They will come from Cancun, they will come from Merida, some of them will stop in Chetumal, but not for taking passengers to that place. They are not going to do something that others are doing now.”

Jose Sanchez

“Do they intend to build terminals for the buses in Belize?”

H. E. Mario Velazquez

“I’d say that is a possibility, but that depends on conveniences—conveniences of course of the Belizeans.”

Jose Sanchez

“Is there current experiments to see how it will work?”

H. E. Mario Velazquez

“In the next days, they will start with some rides. If they come good, they will continue. If they come good for everybody of course.”

ADO has been operating international runs to Belize transporting tourists in transit from the Mexican province of Quintana Roo to Belize and Guatemala.

    I saw the ADO Bus picking up passengers in Ranchito Village, Corozal last night Friday 26th, August.
    Hey if I had a choice to ride Gilharry’s and the others old, nasty, dirty, dusty, hot, noisy school buses or an ADO with A/C, TV, soft reclining seats, quiet, restrooms, and sober drivers, guess who I will choose.
    ADO of course.
    Good thing I own a vehicle and can afford to avoid buses all together.

    I assume, once we learn how to speak/write English properly first, then our education system can improve, and we will have more educated people, ensuring our roads are kept up to par, so companies such as these, can keep working here in Belize!

    Jus so yu know!
