We’ve wanted to start a blog for quite some time. There just aren’t enough good sources of Lima transportation news in English. That’s all about to change with the GringoTaxis blog.
It’s no secret that traffic in Lima is a nightmare. In the decade that I’ve lived in Peru, I’ve seen the government try many things to tackle the problem. Some of them have helped, some have hurt, and some have had no effect at all.
Every time we try to fix traffic, there’s a ripple effect. You might be caught by surprise, for example, when you get pulled over for driving on the wrong day. That’s what’s happened to thousands of Lima drivers due to “Pico y Placa.” Check out our first article, which gives you everything you need to know about Pico y Placa.
And if you don’t drive a car, you probably depend on public transportation. We’ll keep you posted on the latest developments in Lima transportation news. Whether it’s Line 2 of the Metro, or the new “Corredor” buses, you’ll know how to get to your destination if you stop by the GringoTaxis blog.
Much More Than Taxis
Even though GringoTaxis is all about taxi service, we know how difficult it can be to be a Gringo in Lima. That’s why we want to give you all the latest Lima transportation news. Even if you don’t plan on taking a ride with us, we want you to get home safe.
When it comes to getting around in Lima, taxis are just one way to go. So we’ll also be talking about bike lanes, formal and informal transit, traffic laws, road construction. If it’s got wheels and it’s on the ground, we’ll let you know what’s happening with it. Bookmark the page and keep coming back to keep up with the latest Lima transportation news on the GringoTaxi blog.
