Summary

In this paper we examine the problems that exist in the southern area of the State of Tamaulipas, Mexico, referring to the lack of compliance by the authorities with the right to information of citizens, including both public service transport providers  and the population of  the municipalities in that State. This failure of the administrative authorities comes from  the fact that they do not inform citizens about the pollution caused by public transport and its relationship with climate change.

To sort out the above mentioned issue, authorities, in the first place,  should implement an efficient and effective public policy whose practical measures could prevent the disaster from happening, such as the implementation of a regulatory framework, the creation of  air quality monitoring system and the setting of programs devoted to reduce the current pollution and to avoid the climate change. In the second place, public transport operators and citizens, according to their right to information, should be duly informed of what has been done in relation with this matter by local authorities. Thus , the joint action would produce a coparticipation to sort out the dangerous state of affairs that prevails in the area, for the   improvement of air quality and the very same quality of life of the population.
