Planning group set to meet for expanded mass transit project

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - A planning team is set to meet tomorrow on a pilot program for a 24-hour expanded and integrated mass transit program in the villages of Tamuning, Tumon, Harmon and Dededo. Governor Eddie Calvo appointed Senator Aline Yamashita to lead the group. She says expect heightened community conversation with several stakeholders.

She said, "What we will see there is a review of the ridership, the demographics, the funding sources, the different programs that are in play right now that will be one part of the agenda the second part of the agenda will be an open conversation listening to anybody who has something to say about it and we've been getting a lot of emails about safety issues, about integration issues and respecting everyone who will be doing this."

Yamashita says the biggest challenge won't be funding rather the coordination of leadership. She says nine buses are already being shipped to Guam. After the planning meeting, she expects a list of recommendations to be formulated two weeks thereafter. The meeting takes place Thursday at 1pm at the Governor's Conference Room.
