Cholula-Puebla touristMexican Communications and Transportation Secretary Gerardo Ruiz Esparza and Puebla Gov. Rafael Moreno Valle have signed the agreement granting the right to provide public transportation services to the Cholula-Puebla tourist train.

 
The document opens the way for work to start on the line and for bidding on the project to take place.

 
The agreement gives the railway the right to provide service for 30 years, using 80-passenger diesel-electric engines that will pull the train at an average speed of 35 kph (about 22 mph), the secretariat said in a statement.

 
Two stations will be built and the train is expected to make 11 runs a day, with reduced service on Fridays.

 
The project “will benefit domestic and foreign tourism, creating a new tourist attraction, as well as becoming a magnet for investment, thus helping position Puebla state as a destination with innovative, strategic projects,” the Communications and Transportation Secretariat said.
