Sectorization will have many steps over about 8-10 years. It’s not a quick process but it is a worthwhile endeavor. The next step is to advance work on exclusive bus lanes and eliminate the unnecessary final bus stops in San Jose.
When buses that should be just passing through and stopping quickly to let passengers on and off actually stop for a while using San Jose as a resting spot before doing another round it creates traffic jams. This is even worse when three or four are lined up stopped.
Those buses that already have exclusive lanes will be first to stop parking in San José. Later on, plans to stop such congestion by routes from 12 sectors will be put into place. Another change is that there will be electronic tickets used on buses in the future, as are used on trains, making bus stops quicker.
Sectorization is something that’s been talked about for decades. When it was finally decreed in 2017, there was an estimate of 10 years work included, taking into account the large number of urban routes.
