The national tax movement (MNT) blockages at at least three strategic points in the city have collapsed the mobility of the capitals, so we tell you the alternate routes to reach your destination.
A couple of hours ago, the mavericks threatened to make a permanent seeding in case local and federal authorities do not meet their demands to regulate transportation applications such as Uber, Didi, Cabify and Beat.
Mexico City International Airport
At this time the only way to get to Mexico City International Airport (AICM) is by Metro or on foot.

After noon taxi drivers closed the road traffic at the height of Terminal 1 of the AICM and a couple of hours later also blocked the traffic outside Terminal 2, so Metrobus Line 4 stopped serving at Terminal 1 and Ter stations minal 2.
Updating the information, without Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 service of the AICM. Take forecasts. @Capuano @SSP_CDMX @LaSEMOVI @LaSEMOVI @GobCDMX

The Metro continues to provide normal service at its nearest stations, which are Hangars and Air Terminal, Line 5.
In the face of today’s road closures, we recommend using the following alternatives: Line 5 to get closer to the AICM area, as well as Av. Polytechnic and Ticomán; Line B, parallel to Central Av.; Line 1 for nearby as Av. Luis Cabrera and Av. Toluca. #MovilidadCDMX

The vehicle circulation throughout the area is completely stopped, so approaching in a car is not the option.
In this situation, the airline Volaris announced support measures for its customers such as condontation of charges for change of flights between 7 and 14 October.
Important information for passengers traveling to and from Mexico City ✈

Second floor of the Peripheral
One of the last blocked points was the second floor of the Peripheral, at the height of Barranca del Muerto towards Viaducto.
Only private vehicles circulate through this artery, but the nearest Metro station is Barranca del Muerto, on Line 7.
Another option is to use public transport buses that run on the first floor of the Peripheral.

Other avenues or areas that at some point of the day have been blocked are Insurgentes, Zaragoza, Santa Fe and the Zocalo capitalino, for the latter the best option are the stations of Line 2 Zocalo, Allende and Fine Arts. L
