According to the schedule of activities detailed in the specifications, a visit to the project site will take place on January 15th and a validation meeting will take place on January 21st.

The project consists of the installation of a cable car that will connect residential and commercial areas with the Panama Metro by means of a line that will begin near the interconnection station of Metro lines 1 and 2, near the Grand Station. It is projected that the new mass transit system will mobilize 3,000 passengers per hour.

On the other hand, the mayor of San Miguelito, Gerald Cumberbatch, said to Prensa.com that "... it is expected that by next April this project will have been awarded. We estimate that once awarded, the company will be able to begin the first works of this important work, which seeks to improve the life quality of a large part of the population of San Miguelito."

"Ricardo Sánchez, municipal engineer of the Municipality of San Miguelito, said that the pre-feasibility study for the project was prepared by the Panama Metro, which demonstrates the relationship between the two transport systems."
