Planning Summer vacations? Bus direct to Cancun with ADO, or Flores with Fuente del Norte!

Posted: Wednesday, April 12, 2023. 9:57 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the Department of Transport announced Cabinet’s decision to approve the reintroduction of Fuente Del Norte and ADO bus services in Belize. 

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, ADO and Fuente Del Norte offered premier services to Belizeans and international visitors transiting across the Guatemalan and Mexican border points, thereby improving Belize’s connectivity to the region.

ADO will be providing services from Belize City to Merida and Cancun starting on the proposed date of May 1st, 2023. 

Fuente Del Norte will be providing services from Belize City to Flores and Guatemala City starting on the proposed date of April 21, 2023.

The Department of Transport noted that the economic and social gains of reinstating these services are far-reaching, however, the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Transport vehemently commits to safeguarding the business of local bus operators. 

The Department further assured that both bus companies will adhere to these regulations:

1.International Road Service Permit:

All international bus service providers MUST obtain a Road Service Permit to operate in Belize.

The permits must be paid in full before commencing operation. Any arrears can result in the cancellation of the permit by the Department of Transport.

A permit will be issued for every run per day.

Failure to produce a Road Service Permit at a checkpoint can result in a fine being levied against the operator for the offense.

  1. Operational Requirements:

Operators crossing border points MUST have a manifest of passengers on board.

Companies ARE NOT allowed to pick up local commuters en route to their final destination. ONLY TICKETED passengers travelling to Mexico or Guatemala are allowed to be transported.

ADO bus company has been given permission to commence services at the Belize City bus terminal.

Fuente Del Norte bus company will have designated stops in San Ignacio and Belize City outside of the department’s terminal spaces.

The Department of Transport reiterated that contravention of any of these conditions outlined carries a fine of $500 or immediate cancellation of the Road Service Permit.
