PeruRail operates the Bimodal Service (Bus + Train), a service that combines bus and train travel, departing and returning to Cusco City, between January and April. These months comprise the rainy season in Cusco, when part of the railway is closed for safety reasons to avoid possible contingencies as a result of landslides. At this time of year, the railway concessionaire, Ferrocarril Transandino ., performs reinforcement works on the rails. For this reason, trains are unable to travel between Cusco and the Sacred Valley during these four months of the year.
