TransMilenio is a (BRT) system that serves , the capital of . The system opened to the public in December 2000, covering Av. Caracas and Calle 80. Other lines were added gradually over the next several years, and as of 2012, 12 lines totalling 112 km (70 mi) run throughout the city.

It was inspired by 's (Integrated Transportation Network). TransMilenio consists of several interconnected BRT lines, with raised floor stations in the center of a main avenue, or "troncal". Passengers typically reach the stations via a bridge over the street. Usually four lanes down the center of the street are dedicated to bus traffic. There are express and local buses, the latter stopping at every station to pick up passengers. The outer lanes allow express buses to bypass buses stopped at a station.

Users pay at the station entrance using a smart card, pass through a turnstile, and wait for buses inside the station, which is typically 5 m wide. The bus and station doors open simultaneously, and passengers board by simply walking across the threshold. The elevated station platform and the bus floor are at the same height.

The buses are -powered, purchased from such manufacturers as the Colombian-Brazilian company -Superior, German conglomerate , and Swedish companies such as and .

The buses are and have a capacity of 160 passengers. In May 2007, a new, larger , with capacity for 270 passengers, was presented to the public.

TransMilenio buses are not equipped with transponders to give them priority at traffic signals; regret over this fact was voiced by the general manager of the system, Angelica Castro.

As of October 2014 up to 1,500 buses were circulating on the trunk line system. An additional set of 410 regular buses, known as "feeders" (alimentadores in ), transport users from certain important stations to many different locations that the main route does not reach. Unlike the main TransMilenio buses, feeders operate without dedicated lanes, are not articulated and are green (regular TransMilenio buses are red). There is no additional fare to use the feeder buses.

TransMilenio stations at each end of a line have large facilities to facilitate cyclists using the system.


Costs, ridership, and impact[]

According to a United States (TRB) case study report, the initial construction cost for the first phase of million per mile (41 km) was US 0 million, or US .9 million/km. In a report presented later by the of Colombia, the total cost of the construction of Transmilenio phase one was estimated at 1.4 billion (about 703 million ), of which 253.053 million (about 126.5 million ) was provided by the Colombian government. The construction of the phase two was estimated at 3.2 billion (about 1634 million ), of which 2.1 billion (about 1058 million ) was provided by the Colombian government and the rest was provided by the city. The numbers of this report are calculated in money of 2009.

The system is overseen by a public body, which awards contracts to private bus companies on a competitive basis. According to TRB, private contractors are paid based on the total number of kilometers that their vehicles operate.

Daily ridership quickly reached 800,000 after the system opened. TransMilenio has since been expanded. Ridership in early 2006 was 1,050,000 daily, and in 2009 it was 1,400,000 daily.

There is a plan in the near future to build 57 km of route by creating more lines and extending some of the current ones, as well as improving some stations. However, this plan is not well received by the citizenship; according to surveys made in the city, 42% of the citizens consider that building a system should be a priority in order to solve the mobility problem of the city, while 23% consider that more Transmilenio lines should be built.

Although most Bogotans have found Transmilenio to be an improvement over previous bus service, finding the system faster than traditional buses, many feel unsatisfied with it. Of the 37% who use the system on a daily basis, only 19% are satisfied with it. When asked about problems, many complain about overcrowded buses and stations, long wait times and sexual assaults as problems. The system has even been ranked as the "most dangerous transport for women".

The fare in 2018 is 2,300 for a single trip (about 0.65 or 0.80). Cards use a () system, and multiple trips may be purchased using one card.

The trunk system had three types of services:

  • The Current (Corriente) stopped at all stations.
  • The Express (Expresos) only stopped at the stations determined in its route.
  • The Super Express (Super Expresos) was established since the end of 2005 by the expansion of the system. Of these there were two classes:
    • The Asymmetric (Asimetrico) covered the system in one direction. The 201 and 300 went from north to south and the 200 and 301 went from south to north. These services were only in service at peak hours in the morning and evening according to their color.
    • The Symmetrical (Simetrico) traversed the system in both directions, as route 400.
  • The Sunday Express (Expreso Dominical) operated only on Sundays and holidays.

After the total operation of the second phase of the system was implemented, a new system was implemented to facilitate the circulation of the system. The zoning divides the trunks into 12 lines or zones that have different letters and colors. The maps changed at each station, to show the specific services to the station in question and the way to reach the other zones of the system from there.

The trunk system has three types of services:

  • Current or Easy Route (Ruta Fácil): These are the numbered routes from 1 to 9 that stop at all stations and work all day. As of August 2008, this type of service was called the Easy Route. On June 17, 2017 these services were modified, replacing the routes that operated since 2006 by shorter trails, in addition to a change of nomenclature, which did not include the letter and the color of the destination area.
  • Express (Expreso): Routes that only stop at the stations determined in their route, and are numbered from 10 to 99.
  • Dual bus trunk (Troncal Bus Dual): Routes to extend the TransMilenio trunk service to arteries, beginning with the .

TransMilenio has 12 lines serving 149 stations in the city of Bogotá:

Transmilenio system map as of September 2017

Since the May 2006 expansion, the TransMilenio route system has changed dramatically, with new sections added to the system. Instead of being numbered, routes have a combination of letters and numbers. In order to fill the information gap, TransMilenio made available an interactive guide that includes routes, stations, nearby places and route combinations.

New lines have been constructed, including one on Calle 26 (Downtown-West (Airport)) and the other on Carrera 10 (Downtown-South).

Construction of a new line in Carrera 7 (North-Downtown) is under consideration. This has been criticized as there are certain locations where the system might not fit.

There are six types of stations:

  • Sencillas (Simple): local service stations, located approximately every 500 m
  • De transferencia (Transfer): allow transfer between different lines through a tunnel
  • Sin intercambio (No transfer): do not allow transfer between lanes (north-south, south-north, west-east, east-west); located in the Autopista Norte (due a stretch of the way), Tunal and 6th Street ramification (due water channels).
  • Intermedias (Intermediate): service both feeder and trunk line.
  • Cabecera (Portal): near the entrances to the city. In addition to feeders and articulated buses, intercity buses from the metropolitan area also arrive at these stations.
  • Paraderos bus dual (dual-bus stop): located in the streets, these stops don't have turnstiles, electronic boards and the floor level is the same of the street; served by buses with station-level and street-level doors. These stops are located in the pretroncal corridors (AK 7, AV Caracas, AV Suba, AC 80, AV Eldorado).

All stations have electronic boards announcing the approximate arrival time of the next bus. Wait times are short as there is usually a bus serving the station. There are also station attendants to provide assistance to the passengers, and posted system maps.


Before TransMilenio, Bogotá's mass transit "system" consisted of thousands of independently operated and uncoordinated mini buses. There was also a plan for a network of elevated highways throughout Bogota, and plans to build a subway as Medellín had done seven years prior. When was elected mayor he cancelled these projects and oversaw the construction of the initial TransMilenio system at a fraction of the cost.

Within three years after the initiation of the project, the first phase opened in December 2000. A second phase has been completed, and a third is underway. Prior to construction, a 30 km trip by public transport would take 2 hours and 15 minutes in 1998; the same trip using TransMilenio now takes 55 minutes.

The mayor created a special company to build the project and run the central system. The operational design of TransMilenio was undertaken by transport consultants with the financial structuring of the project led by Capitalcorp S.A., a local investment bank. Most of the money required to build TransMilenio was provided by the Colombian central government, while the city of Bogotá provided the remaining 30%.

Other cities are building systems modeled on Transmilenio, for example, , and in , but the difference is that in these cities the system is complemented with a .

TransMilenio stations comply with regulations because they are elevated and have ramps leading to the entrance. The alimentadores (feeders) are normal buses without handicapped accessibility. A lawsuit by disabled user Daniel Bermúdez caused a ruling that all feeder systems must comply with easy access regulations by 2004, but this has not happened yet.

2006 protests[]

On May 2 and 3, 2006, several groups of bus drivers not associated with TransMilenio held a strike, protesting against some elements and consequences of the system. They disagreed with the amount of monetary compensation that they would receive in exchange for the disposal of old buses (10 to more than 20 years old), traffic restrictions on the TransMilenio main lines, and a new Pico y Placa Ambiental in some city areas, that would restrict the schedules of buses older than 10 years to early morning hours to reduce pollution in the city.

Some of the larger bus companies which participate in TransMilenio also retired their conventional bus lines during the strike. Public transportation ground to a halt in much of the city. Although TransMilenio and a number of other buses continued operating, they could not cope with all of the demand. Acts of individual intimidation and violence against some private vehicles, TransMilenio and conventional buses occurred during the strike, as well as clashes between some of the strikers and the police.

Bogotá's rejected the strike, firmly defended all of the measures as necessary for the city's transportation future, and stated that he was only willing to discuss the specific details of their implementation, as well as a further democratization of TransMilenio's operations, after the situation calmed down. During the second and final day of the strike, the local administration, the strikers and their companies agreed to begin talks.

During the strike, some protests included users of TransMilenio who complained because the buses were passing at a very low frequency. Several stations became so filled up that some people fell from them into the street. Even after the strike ended, some TransMilenio passengers have subsequently protested because they still find aspects of the system to be inefficient and uncomfortable.

2012 protests[]

Due to the relatively high price, overcrowding, and delays in the routes hundreds of people mostly students protested and some vandals looted and broke windows on March 9, 2012, causing half a million dollars of damage and 11 injuries. The vandals were confronted and detained by .


Users lining up to access Station, due to overcrowding

According to recent polling, Transmilenio has an 86% disapproval rating from users. User strikes have erupted over the bad quality of the service, with users blocking the dedicated roads used for the buses, at times collapsing the entire system. This protest sometimes devolve into riots involving heavy police presence and the use of crowd control measures such as tear gas and water cannons.

The system has been described by the users, independent bodies and the media from suffering from overcrowding with an average of eight passengers per square meter, insecurity and providing bad customer service. At rush hours "stations are so packed that people can't get off the bus". In some stations the overcrowding is so big that the users must wait in a long line for recharging the Smart card and in another line for accessing the station. According to official data in 2017 there were 3404 thefts in the TransMilenio stations and 1442 more in the buses.

The bad image and quality of the system has occasioned an increment in the number of cars and motorcycles in the city, the citizens prefer these transport means over TransMilenio. According to official data the number of cars increased from approximately 666.000 in 2005 to 1.586.700 in 2016; the number of motorcycles is also growing, 660.000 were sold in Bogota in 2013, twice the number of cars sold.

During construction there were problems with the concrete used to pave the dedicated roads, which had an estimated cost to the city of 1.6 trillion pesos (500 million dollars). In 2012 the secretary of finance of Bogota said that the whole line of Avenida Caracas should be rebuilt as well as some parts of the Avenida 26 line.

Air pollution[]

In 2015 an study made by the revealed thet 70% of the is caused by the buses of the first phase of Transmilenio in the zones near of the existing lines of the system. According to official data more than 50% of the first and second phase buses are hazardous for the environment because they don't fit the atmospheric emissions rules. There is also a big controversy since Transmilenio buses are powered, some academics, councillors and citizens claim that these buses are dangerous for the city since diesel fuels are carcinogens according to the and they point as example the fact that they are asked for banning in other cities like or .

Sexual assaults[]

Women in Bogota claim that the overcrowding in the system makes it easy for the criminals to attack women and go unnoticed. According to a 2012 survey made by the secretary of the woman of Bogota 64% of the women said they have been victims of sexual assault in the system, several policies have been adopted in order to face this problem, like an exclusive bus for women, or a special undercover policewomen group but none of them have been effective against the problem, and the sexual assault cases continue.

Broken buses[]

In 2017 and 2018 many incidents with Transmilenio buses have been reported while they were operating. There have been cases of buses being burned due to mechanical problems, one bus broken in half, tires flying off the buses and hitting cars, and users reporting that water leaks into the buses when it rains.
