Governor wants to see changes in AutoExpreso this year
By The Star Staff
Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia said Wednesday that he does not agree with the deadline set by Highways and Transportation Authority Executive Director Edwin González Montalvo to change the AutoExpreso system by the beginning of next year.
“That the infrastructure that is being used be changed, that the technology that is being used be changed and that a process of requesting proposals be opened for the operator that we are going to have. All of this will be done,” the governor said at a press conference. “What I hope is that it is being carried out and comes to a successful conclusion at some point this summer. I had heard or read in the media that the executive director said that perhaps this change would materialize early next year, no. From my point of view, that is too late.”
“I want a change in infrastructure, a change in technology and the possibility of a change in operator to happen in the middle of this year,” Pierluisi added. “I have no tolerance for waiting until the beginning of next year.”
The governor said his proposal is to merge AutoExpreso with the CESCO digital system.
