" Mexico announced yesterday that they will no longer allow Belizean buses to cross the border into Chetumal. This will be a blow to Belizean operators, a boom for Chetumal taxis, and extra cost for Belizeans visiting Chetumal.

The owners flatly refused to adhere to standards acceptable to Mexico and yet demanded reciprocity. Mexico agreed to allow time for them to get up to standard but that time has run out. Operators complained that enforcement of standards in Belize to meet the Mexican requirement will inevitably lead to a demand for higher fares. "
