Guam - The Guam Regional Transit Authority's board of directors lacked quorum during their special meeting today to finalize the cost-cutting changes made to their bus service operations. The board instead held an informational briefing to discuss the proposed changes.

Those include suspending all Sunday and holiday bus services, as well as demand response services, reducing fixed routes and para-transit services by an hour, and expanding services for high traffic areas. Interim executive manager Felix Dungca also presented their efforts to hire a permanent agency head.

He said, "The purchase order will be cleared at GSA and BBMR, we are hoping that would be cleared today or tomorrow the add is ready to be put in the paper and as soon as its cleared then we will put it out in the local circulation."

The board will reconvene their meeting next Friday to finalize the proposed bus service changes.
