Puerto Vallarta will be the first city in Mexico to launch the new ‘Mi Transporte’ transportation model, aligned with the integrated mobility policy of the Government of Jalisco. This means that bus routes will be changing, and units will have prepaid systems using debit card-style passes to ride buses, of which most will now run on natural gas.
The head of the Transportation Secretariat (Setran), Diego Monraz, said thanks to the reorganizing, which starts in June, they expect a decongestion of the downtown streets in Puerto Vallarta.
“With the adjustments we have made, we can ensure that, starting next month, Puerto Vallarta will have one of the most complete, exemplary, clean, self-sustaining and economic transportation models. It will become a plan to follow as a national model. ”

Amilcar López, Director of Public Transportation, said that in Puerto Vallarta, 30 transportation routes will be in operation with 360 units, of which 320 will operate on natural gas.
The new system also plans to offer a graphic system for ‘Mi Transporte’, consisting of legible maps of the routes visible in the units.
The new system of recharging bus fare cards will be the first in operation for Jalisco.
