A Yutong bus that covered route P3 in Havana catches fire

This Wednesday morning, a Chinese-made Yutong bus that covers route P3 caught fire while it was traveling through Eastern Havana. “No loss of human lives or injuries are regretted,” published the newspaper official Tribune of Havana.

The fire, according to the fire chief, “was caused in the turbo of this vehicle.” The incident was controlled thanks to the fact that the drivers of the cars that were behind the bus “provided their fire extinguishers” while the official brigade arrived.

Images of the wrecked bus were also shared in the Facebook group Accidentes buses & trucks by Hernán Limonta. Among the comments, the work done by the driver to keep the vehicle in service was indicated.

“How sad and more so because the driver remains in the air,” said Dioelis Gago Santana. “They don’t give him any other car. Hopefully he runs with luck and they give him one of the ones that are coming in,” added the user, alluding to the 29 units that Belgium donated. Of these, 20 will be assigned to the Mulgoba terminal, according to a publication by Granma.

“The work that goes into this country to maintain a car at the height it was at is very painful,” shared a driver from Villa Clara identified as Alejandro Jesús Calviño. “In a few minutes it breaks down like this out of nowhere, my respect for that driver and friend spirit, it comes out of worse.”

The lack of this vehicle will increase the transportation crisis experienced by Havanans. No improvement even when in May, the Havana government announced that 286 vehicles “from school buses and from different institutions and organizations” were going to be added to the urban buses that are circulating in the capital.

Already last April, the general director of transport, Leandro Méndez Peña, had admitted that only 45.7% of the buses were available. What made it noticeable more than half are out of service.
