The Bogota mobility office is facing many challenges, chief of which is the pandemic. Just like in any other mass transit agency, social distancing and mask-wearing need to be enforced. This can be an arduous process in the capital city of the country of Colombia.
Economic challenges both local and worldwide are causing quite a squeeze on the nation and on the city in particular. Traffic gridlock is a daily concern that sometimes results into driver rage. There are still too many cars traveling in the city.
Mass transportation hasn’t really caught on, even though the government is doing its best to promote the use of buses. Meanwhile, bicycle proponents are advocating the need to allocate separate lanes for biking. As it presently stands, pedestrians and bikers alike must share the available routes. If the bikers’ situation is improved and more Bogota residents are encouraged to take public transit, pressures caused by traffic issues may be eased.
