Senda bus through Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey

Can't Post | Private Reply
What is the relative safety of taking a SENDA bus from Texas through to Monterrey right now? I see that a cartel leader has just been captured. I am planning a trip on Thursday, one of the luxury SENDA busses.

Does capture of cartel leaders normally lead to violence in the area?

I live in Nuevo Laredo. Miguel Trevino is the person you are referring to and he is the leader of the Zetas. No one of that importance has ever been picked up so there is no precedent for predicting what might happen.

I seriously doubt anything that would impact commercial bus service is going to happen. Cross border bus service has not been affected thus far and I would be surprised if it was.

Thanks Altahabana, I appreciate all the work you do communicating from NL. I will just keep an eye on the situation.

The only way this event could possibly disrupt bus service would be if the rival cartel coalition tried to take advantage of the situation. I don't know how anyone can accurately predict whether that will happen. I would just carry on with your plans and not worry about it.

Thank you for your perspective. We were a little concerned because our family is coming next week. But we are going to proceed as planned.

If you are driving I would recommend you stay on the Autopista and cross in Nuevo Laredo.

They are taking the bus, and should be in and out of Laredo / Nuevo Laredo during the daylight hours.
