Metro Buses in serious problems with new route: Santo Domingo - Cap Cana

Drivers Union attack competitor bus from Metro Bus in Cap Cana, broken window and flat tires. Passengers had to walk......

Cap Cana - Members of the Bávaro-Punta Cana Transport Union (Sitrabapu) and the Public Transport Bus Owners Association of La Altagracia Province (APTPRA) broke a glass and emptied the tires of the Metro Bus company in opposition to the company opening a new route from Cap Cana to Santo Domingo.

The affected bus, a Scania 124, license plate I043163, had three passengers on board when it was ambushed. No one was injured but in addition to committing the above damages, the road to the Cap Cana was blocked, forcing the National Police, the Specialized Body of Tourism Security (Cestur) and the Metropolitan Transport Authority (AMET) to entervine for other vehicles to pass.

The conflict is due to Sitrabapu and APTPRA opposing a resolution 03-2018 of the National Institute of Transit and Land Transportation (INTRANT), which favors the agreement signed by the companies Metro Tours SRL and Cap Cana SA to open a route of 4 daily buses from the tourist complex to Santo Domingo and back. However the administrators of APTPRA and Sitrabapu have a monopoly on public transport in La Altagracia and oppose this new route.

The route begun to operate this Monday, from 7:30 am to 6:30 pm, and cost aprox US$ 12
