Guam – The Guam Regional Transit Authority is preparing to expand its services from the seven bus lines offered today, to nine on August 1st.

It was only a few months ago that the transit program underwent a lot of criticism from riders who were tired of long waits and a confusing route schedule yet Cabana says GRTA is ready for the expanded schedule, which he says will make the system more efficient.

“It’s a lot quicker,” Cabana said comparing the new schedule to current schedule which include two to three hour waits between stops.

The changes however will come at a cost to paratransit riders. Fees for that service, which takes disabled riders from point A to point B and is not a fixed route will go up from 35-cents per ride to $2 a ride.

GRTA will also be ordering new buses in the near future, thanks to a federal grant. Cabana adds that new benches will be installed courtesy of the Rotary Club of Guam once a Memorandum Of Understanding is worked out.
