MASS TRANSIT IN BUENOS AIRES

Although transit service in Buenos Aires is termed, good, the diverse makes and models of its buses oftentimes reduces their reliability because they cannot be interchanged when repairs are needed. The population of over 10,000,000 generates some 15,000,000 daily trips to the center of the city. Both public and private modes are used with each setting its own fares. Taxi cabs are completing the task of converting from gas oil to compressed gas as an air pollution reduction effort with buses soon to follow. The railroads are essential to urban life, but they too suffer from poor equipment and non-interchangeable cars due to variations in makes and models. At present, the government has to cover operation and capital expenses and is currently taking steps to address some of the problems of the railroads.
