The term democrático (lit. democratic) has come to mean for the people. Since Mexico is a country with a small middle class and a gigantic mass of poor people, democrático is interpreted as for the poor. In every day speak, democrático is used as a reference to public trasportation. Democrático is a short version of democrático pesero (microbus) or democrático metro (subway).

Diego: Dejaste tu nave con el valet?
Gael: Nel, me vine en democrático.

Diego: Did you valet park your car?
Gael: Nope, I took public transportation.
