Regarding the support network's system, the head of the Ministry of Mobility (Semovi), Andrés Lajous, announced that the hours of operation to Metro users were extended.

The Support Network staff that reports in real-time the transport situation to avoid crowds reported that there were already people trained before the start of operations.

For this reason, the opening of the network began at 4:40 am, 20 minutes before, to serve passengers with 1,366 vehicles.

He said the waiting time between buses was reduced to 1 minute on the Tasqueña and Universidad route. Simultaneously, the maximum is 15 minutes in Hidalgo, Zapato, Indios Verdes, and Zapata during the morning.

Finally, the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC CDMX) provided support on the Observatorio - Chapultepec route for free, contributing to less saturation.
