Colombia´s public transport systems have been badly hit by the pandemic. Restrictions have eased but occupation remains low. According to the Latin American Association of Integrated Systems for Sustainable Urban Movement (Simus), there is currently a daily deficit of more than $ 2.9 million in the eight systems of Colombia´s main cities (Transmilenio, Medellín Metro, Megabus, Metrolínea, MÍO, Transmetro, Metroplús and Transcaribe), a 79% loss in daily revenue when compared to pre-COVID19 levels.
