Guam - Public transportation is running into some major financial roadblocks. According to interim executive manager Felix Dungca as a result he's proposing the partial suspension of bus hour operations.

Dungca says the board this week was presented with his agency's cash flow problems, adding he's been faced with having to wait six months at a time before receiving federal grants to help pay for services to fully be operational. "Clearly in April, there will be some reduction in services and this is just a reality as you can only do so much with the appropriation you get, and I should add it's no secret that in this fiscal year we got a shortfall of $1 million."

He adds they are working with the governor's fiscal policy team to provide bridge financing so they can continue to provide bus transportation services. The proposal to suspend partial service hours is expected to be discussed during the board's March 7 meeting.
