Guam - The Department of Public Works says the bus situation is getting much better. According to agency director Andy Leon Guerrero, the number of buses on the roads is increasing, which means less kids are being left to wait for a ride. "We've increased our buses for lease up to 15 as of today. In the past, we've leased out 10, but now we're up to 15," he said."
Leon Guerrero added, "Some of the parts have come in and we have increased our capacity to about five last week and we should increase it by more. We're moving ahead. I think we're going to move ahead quickly because the parts are coming in."
DPW has about 103 buses up and running with more than 20 still needing to be repaired. Leon Guerrero says he expects more parts to come in within the next several weeks. The lack of working buses has prompted kids to be picked up and dropped off later than normal.
