However around sixty percent of the people in Mexico City using public transport rely on the 28,000 little buses known as "peseros"... vehicles which Alejandro calls the worst!
What is most scary is that there is no regulation of these buses. Many of the vehicles are poorly maintained, and there is no criteria for the hiring of drivers. The buses are notorious for causing accidents... sometimes fatal accidents. (The driver usually runs away from the scene of the accident, never to be seen again.) Until the city government takes some action, regulating the "peseros" or providing better public transport options, those little buses will continue to be a blight on the city.
