Capital adjusts traffic to speed up Metrobus line (Panama)
Authorities in Panama City have begun reorganizing transport along the roads that form the Corredor Sur route of the Metrobus public transport system, according to a presidential release.


Modifications include implementing signal lights and exclusive Metrobus lanes near Via Israel exits during peak times.


The changes will be effective as of January 12.


"This change seeks to speed up travel time for Metrobus users, and increase the amount of users of this new, modern transport system," said presidential minister Jimmy Papadimitriu.


The city's new Metrobus public transport system began operating at end-December, with 120 new buses circulating along four routes that form the Corredor Sur line.


The system's operator, Tranporte Masivo de Panama, will replace all 3,000 of the city's buses by August 2011, benefiting some 600,000 residents.
