Violent riots at the National University leave several TransMilenio stations closed

TransMilenio and SITP affected

The riots caused the closure of several TransMilenio stations in the area, affecting the mobility of thousands of users. SITP zonal routes 191, 599, H606, H608, H708, SE14, T11, T26 and T163 also had to divert their routes to avoid congestion and disturbances.

Protests over the election of the rector

The roots of these protests date back to the recent election of José Ismael Peña as the new rector of the National University. A sector of the student community has expressed its rejection of the election, alleging that its rights have been violated and that the process has not been legitimate.

Concern and measures

The University directives have expressed their deep concern about the events and have declared a red alert on campus. The presence of explosive material in the facilities in recent days forced the suspension of classes without a defined date for their resumption.

The Bogotá Metropolitan Police has begun investigations to identify those responsible for the acts of vandalism.
