Ramped low-floor buses for Uruguay’s capital

Montevideo moves to accessible buses.In a major step forward, the City of Montevideo has announced plans to progressively replace its current fleet of some 1,500 buses with new low-floor ramped units equipped with securement areas for wheelchair users and new cleaner engines to address air quality concerns. The new buses will be phased in progressively over a period of several years until all buses include the new features. The reports come from Eduardo Alvarez and Nicolás Li Calzi, Uruguayan architects who have actively promoted accessible transportation in the South American republic for many years.
