President Juan Carlos Varela announced that in 2015 there will be a readjustment in the cost of using public transportation in Panama, which includes the Metro, Metro Bus, and feeder busses. The tariff charged will change to be based on the amount of time users use the public transportation system.
Varela noted that this rate will be initiated in mid-summer season of 2015, after the integration of the Metro bus to Metro Panama is established.
Once the Metro bus and Metro are integrated, there will be a flat rate, and users will be able to use the bus and Metro for the same price. This will represent a significant savings if you use your card on multiple forms of transportation. – Varela
