The Mexico-Toluca Interurban Train track will reach 57.87 kilometers that it will travel in 39 minutes, from Zinacantepec, State of Mexico, to Observatorio, Mexico City, with 30 trains of five wagons each and a capacity to transport 230,000 users per day.

For its part, the government of Mexico City reported last month that it will continue with the construction of the 17 kilometers that connect with the Observatorio station, whose progress is 52 percent.

Recently, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador commented that the railway project is badly done; but due to the progress in its construction, it is not feasible to stop the work. He added that he plans to finish it in 2022.
