Provisional SITP: The nostalgia of drivers for dismantling their ships

-Do you plan to continue being a driver?

I’m too tired, I’ve been at this for many years. I have plans to suddenly start a business, I have a sixth grade and I am thinking of suddenly driving Transmilenio, of the articles. Those from the system gave us training to get involved, but they came too late.


-The system is very poorly designed (…) They thought it was bringing an engineer or whatever, to study, but it is different from doing it with a person who lived twenty years. I am sorry that this business is ending because it is quite lucrative. In this business you give yourself a life of luxury (…) In this business you earn more than a lawyer.

-And what about the merchants?

-We all know that the whereabouts are the caliper, the one with the tire mounter, the cafeteria, the electrician, the one who sells the chance. Today you look at the whereabouts and they are completely dead, because this business was the one that fed them. We were all a circle.

Nostalgic, González concludes by showing his disagreement with the system’s model. “They should give the drivers more motivation” is the only thing he ends up with.

For now, Transmilenio ensures that 3,000 drivers have been linked to the company and according to recent job calls, the basic salary for a driver with a C2 license is 1,079,000 pesos plus the operational bonus of 232,000 pesos and the transportation assistance of 101,000 pesos.

Of these, “3,227 buses have been disintegrated in parallel with the exit from the Provisional SITP scheme from November 2015 to September 30, 2021,” Transmilenio reported recently.
