ServiceTransmetro is a bus rapid transit system in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Service began with its first line opening on February 3, 2007. Unlike other bus routes in Guatemala City, it is serviced by a fleet of modern Volvo buses made by Ciferal in Brasil. The buses have fixed stops and partly run on dedicated lanes, avoiding other traffic. Both stops and vehicles are guarded by municipal police. In the city of chicken buses, this is a breeze of world class service, and guess what - price is the same! One quetzal for a ride.

Station by station, this system is slowly spreading, but it will take some years before traditional chicken buses would be endangered. However, it is a pleasant change to see and use such a modern mean of transportation. Visitors in Guatemala City are sometimes surprised that every five minutes (or even less) there is another shiny, almost brand new bus coming to pick them up.
