Line 1 of Guatemala City's passenger train, a 30km train line, will run from the north to the south of the capital, using an existing rail line that has been out of service for the past ten years. The train will require some 70,000 passengers each day to make it financially viable for private investors, as Guatemala's national agency for the development of economic infrastructure ANADIE does not anticipate a large public investment in the project. Some 270,000 people currently travel from the south and the north of the capital to the center each day by bus. The journey currently takes 2.5 hours but would be reduced to 25 minutes once the train is operational.
