Starting from today, July 1, the Municipal Transit Authority (MTA for its Spanish acronym) will take over the vehicular registration and monitoring, which has already been delivered by the Transit Commission of Ecuador (CTE for its Spanish acronym) from Monday June, 23.
“They (the Municipality) has sent to the National Transit Agency a schedule stating 2015 as the date to fully assume its jurisdiction. Hopefully, it is one in the fastest way to stop monitoring the streets and dedicate resources and these efforts to monitor the roads,” said Michel Doumet, Executive Director of the CTE.
The next step is that the Municipality has its own traffic officers. They must send a list with the staff to be trained in the Training School of the CTE. Once graduated, the current attention of the Commission will leave Guayaquil and will be relocated to other provinces.
This training takes at least four months. In the case of Guayaquil, 190 traffic officers, six inspectors and three supervisors will be prepared.
