This week, WBUR introduced a special news series on transportation. Bostonomix Reporter Zeninjor Enwemeka traveled to Mexico to explore how bus rapid transit eased Mexico City's grueling commute. The "Metrobús" has transformed Mexico City's roadways over the last 15 years with a faster, more efficient bus system known as bus rapid transit. And it could be a model for Boston. Stories in the series called ¡VIVA BUSES! can be heard on WBUR's Morning Edition and found online here.
