A free bus route serves Merida’s health care workers who don’t feel safe on public transportation.

Following a spate of attacks from people who associate nurses and doctors with the spread of coronavirus, a shuttle called “Health Heroes Route” runs a route that connects the city’s main hospitals.

The ride is free. Passengers need only present a badge to board.

These are buses, apparently belonging to the company that provides services on the route to Cholul and Itzimná.

The bus runs from El Faro hospital, Hospital Regional del Alta Especialidad and Star Medica. It continues toward CMA, Issste de Pensiones, Juárez and the Clinica Mérida before reaching Hospital de la Amistad Corea-México, in the south of the city.

“Then they will return by the same route in order to bring them closer to their homes, and from their homes to the hospital where they work,” wrote Lara Ruiz, an IMSS worker, on Facebook.

In addition, a rental bus company that normally serves tourists offers two daily shuttles from the Juárez hospital to the the Cathedral.
