The manufacturer of the carriages, which is based in Mexico, is now testing them, according to Royal Railway, the company in charge of the shuttle service.

The total cost of the carriages will be between $1 to $2 million. They will replace the double-headed carriage now in use.

Once in full operation, the railway service is expected to have a capacity of 100 passengers, although not all riders will enjoy seating and some will have to travel standing up.

The shuttle was launched in April and connects the city with its airport, a distance of about 10 kilometres. Passengers can enjoy the service free-of-charge until the end of July.
