With more than 22 million users, the metrobus has become the second most used means of transportation in Mexico Cityonly surpassed by the Metro Collective Transport System (STC), according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi).

Inaugurated on June 19, 2005 by the government of the then Federal District (today CDMX), the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT, for its acronym in English) has had the objective of improving the passenger flow by speeding up and reducing transfer times.

Nowthe system has seven lines: line 1, which goes from Green Indians to El Caminero; line 2, which goes from Tepalcates to Tacubaya; line 3, which covers Tenayuca to Pueblo Sta. Cruz Atoyac; Line 4, which includes sections of San Lázaro to T1 and T2.

Likewise, line 5 goes from Rio de los Remedios to High School one; line 6 covers Villa de Aragon to El Rosario; line 7, which covers Indios Verdes to Campo Marte. Similarly, there is currently a popup service what about Metro Coyuya to Tláhuac.

Due to the high demand for this public transport service, the Metrobús has implemented a page to inform about the state of service of the lines, with updates every hour about the type of service and the stations that have temporary closures.

At the 08:00 cut off there is the following report:
