Guerra said on the Telemetro Reports morning news broadcast that as a provider of the service, they were just informed of the details about the renewal procedures last week, and they just received the order to proceed for its implementation.
As for the complaints being made by parents, because they must present the school registration form as part of the formalities required for the renewal of the card, Guerra said this was done by the ATTT and the Meduca, and this was done in order to ensure that the person who receives the benefit (of the lower bus fare) is the student.
For her part, the Minister of Education Lucy Molinar criticized the date this information was made public, and she even confirmed that since learning about this issue she has been seeking to have a meeting with the Transit Authority, but it has not been possible. (Panama America)
Editor's Comment: School kids can ride the Metro Buses for only 10 cents, but they have to have one of the electronic swipe cards that has been issued specifically to them.
