The Presidency decreed a major nationwide program to provide free transport to school children nationwide.

I was on the guagua yesterday morning going to the main guagua station to go to San Isidro. Normally it's about 5-10 people on it and we all get off at the Andres station to go to the capital. This time however, we got bombarded by non-paying students. Evidently there is a contract with the guagua company. In any case, our guagua was SRO for almost 1/2 kilometer. Then they all got off. There is no reason they needed to use the guagua when they could have walked in 5 or 10 minutes. My 67 year old legs do much more than that every day. What a waste!

Same reason you often see 5 colmados within one block from the custmer's house and all of them offer delivery services. LAZY
