Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 3.59.38 PMThe Transport and Telecommunications Authority (ATT) has launched its website to report recklessness behavior or drinking for drivers who drive buses on interdepartmental trips.

“The ATT designed a site that will be operational so that from a mobile phone or computer, anyone can fill out a form and report if the driver is drunk, drinking or if the passenger faces some other problems, such as carrying passengers in the hallway” said the executive director of the ATT, Luis Felipe Guzman.

The official announcement was made due to the increase of interdepartmental trips that will start from today for the [2015] Carnival.

“If the driver is drunk or if he is drinking, the message is sent and we immediately we send Transito to enable and stop the bus and the company to take action. Even the user can enter photographs of what is seeing,” said Guzman.

The form will ask for information such as company name, origin, destination, board the bus and details of the complainant.

In a box of observations shall specify whether the driver had consumed alcohol during the journey, transported cargo or baggage in unoccupied seats if carried passengers in corridors, stairs, walk or mailboxes on the bus, or was abandoned on the highway by mechanical failure and if you have any other comments not cited. The photos will be added, according to Guzman, “as proof of the fact.”


The National Telecommunications Company (ENTEL) reported that will provide mobile services and mobile internet throughout the course of the new double track La Paz – Oruro, for the benefit and convenience of its more than 4.5 million users.

The coverage allows for continuous communication to all travelers transiting this vital two-way covering over 200 kilometers from the seat of government and the capital of folklore. Entel makes an investment of $350 million dollars in 2015.
