Aguado highlights "normality in regional public transport" during the start of phase 1 of de-escalation
This morning Vice-president, Minister for Sport, Transparency and spokesman of the Regional Government, Ignacio Aguado, visited the Centre for Innovation and Management of Public Transport (CITRAM), at the headquarters of the Regional Transport Consortium of the Region of Madrid, to analyse the return to normality of thousands of residents in Madrid and the functioning of public transport at the start of phase 1 of de-escalation. Aguado was accompanied by the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Infrastructure, Ángel Garrido.
The regional Vice-president pointed out that the general tone of the morning "has been marked by normality in public transport" and highlighted Metro's capacity to adapt to the abnormal circumstances generated by the coronavirus crisis (COVID-19). "Gradually more people will join Metro and the regional transport network", he added, explaining that "we will have to start getting used to a greater number of passengers on our journeys". For this reason, Aguado stressed that "the key lies in self-protection, in wearing a mask to protect ourselves and to protect our environment".
