ADO bus passengers in Oaxaca must now provide identification before travel

The bus terminals of ADO in Oaxaca have applied new restrictions for the sale of tickets and boarding. The company made the announcement through a statement to comply with the provisions of the National Institute of Migration as part of the crackdown on illegal migration from Central America to the U.S. border with Mexico.

The increase in travel measures generates diverse opinions among users; while for some the new policy increases security, for others, it generates discomfort due to the invasion of their privacy, and many admit they do not always bring identification with them while traveling.

According to passengers, the official identification must also be shown at the time of ticket purchasing and boarding, because the ticketing can be purchased online.

The bus line in the Oaxacan capital is the transit terminal for passengers from Chiapas and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, points that are part of the migratory route from Central America.
