Dominican Republic: Government studies construction of light rail, monorail/BTR for Santiago and SD with private investment

The Government is in the study phase of several transportation solutions to be developed in a public-private alliance.

The general director of Public-Private Alliances, Sigmund Freund Mena, said that the construction of solutions for Santo Domingo and Santiago is being contemplated and that it is being studied whether it would be through a monorail, a light rail or a BTR.

“What will come through the public-private alliance is the great development that President Luis Abinader announced… in the city of Santo Domingo at first and then in Santiago. We are already in the study phase of what would be the solution, whether it would be through a monorail, a light rail or through a BTR, which are different modalities of transportation,” he explained.

He said that in principle, 27 de Febrero Avenue is being identified as the route along which this solution should go, from the Plaza de la Bandera to the International Airport of the Americas (AILA).
