Keep in mind: Transmilenio reminded its users that the number of inoperative and partially enabled stations during this Wednesday, May 12, may increase, taking into account that the mass transport team still continues to verify the damage that the trunk lines have received during the last hours.

Bogotá’s mass transportation system reported in recent hours that millions of Bogota citizens have been affected by the demonstrations in the city. For this reason, Transmilenio announced that the money for the tickets will be returned to those users who validated them but were unable to access the articles due to protests and blockades.

Those who meet this condition and want the system to return their money, will have to call the lines 195- 4824304 or 2203000, or the page, and deliver your personal data: name, card number, station of origin, station of destination, as well as the approximate time and date when you entered the system.

Once Transmilenio validates the information and determines that it was indeed affected by the protests in the city and could not use the system, they will automatically recharge the value of your card.
