Project Details


The Yucatán transpeninsular train project will be developed in two stages. During the first part, a 296km stretch will be built spanning from Mérida in Yucátan to Punta Venado in Riviera Maya. A second stretch would link Punta Venado to Cancun in Quintana Roo. Local authorities estimate the train will travel at an average speed of 110-160km/h, cover the stretch in 2.5 hours, and transport 400 passengers per trip. It will benefit the populations of Tixkokob, Tekantó, Tunkás, Dzitás and Chemax. The project has been cancelled due to monetary austerity measures taken by the Federal Government.
