Ventura Vega, director of transit agency ATTT, announced that the Metro Bus system will begin service Friday in Torrijos Carter.
Service was supposed to start today, but it was delayed for five days due to issues over compensation to operators of the diablos rojos that currently handle this sector.
The bus fare will remain 25 cents.
Minister of the Presidency Roberto Henríquez said that the government has the necessary funds on hand to pay the compensation. The Metro will also be expanding to 24th de Diciembre and Veranillo in the near future.
