With approval from the Jalisco Ministry of Health, the public transport units of Puerto Vallarta will turn on the air conditioners (A/C) again, with the condition that riders must continue to use face masks.

The change was announced by the president of UnibusPV, Luis Romero Chávez, who explained that since Monday the company’s trucks that are equipped with air conditioning have been put to work again.

Of the 240 units, 190 have air conditioning equipment, but several of them currently have maintenance issues after two years of not being used during the pandemic, those are currently undergoing repair.

In the coming weeks the night transportation service, known as “Búho”, will return, which also stopped working due to the pandemic.
