About the Land Transport Terminals in Colombia
The culture of riding a bus and the high demand that this service has led to constant changes in the transport industry. It started with small trucks that transported passengers from one town to another and then took them to the nearest cities. With the appearance of Bus Operators, new routes were created allowing more people to use this service. With so many destinations, users took a bus that rode them and leave them close to the place they wanted to reach. This led to the creation of a bus terminal in cities and towns for an easy access to public transport.
A bus terminal is a station located in a strategic point of the main cities, towns and municipalities where people go to buy their travel tickets to a specific place. Also, a bus terminal is the place where buses arrive from a particular destination and leave the passengers they bring on board. The bus terminal is the place where users take buses to leave where they want to go and the point of entry of those coming from other regions.
Just as it was necessary to create airports for the movement of airplanes and passengers, the appearance of the bus terminal was essential. This allowed not only to create an order and a solid structure of road transportation, but it greatly motivated more people to be encouraged to travel by road, by being clear about the point of the city where they should go when they wanted to travel and not to walk around the streets searching for a bus that went to where they needed to travel. Having all the bus companies that leave and arrive at the city, town or municipality gathered at the same point, allowed people to realize all the possibilities they had to travel.
