Bus drivers from East Panama will meet with officials from transit agency ATTT today to seek a solution to the ongoing problems related to fuel subisidies.
The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the headquarters of the ATTT.
"The government must try to see how it can make payments on time for fuel so that this will not be a problem," said Diogenes Vergara, leader of the transport cooperative of San Cristóbal.
Drivers are upset that they now have to use more fuel per week due to traffic in Panama City.
"A route that used to take two hours now takes two hours and a half," Vergara said. "That is an extra $40 in fuel."
Vergara said that they hope to reach a satisfactory agreement with the authorities of the ATTT.
