PSVs to be assigned to under served routes

PSVs to be assigned to under served routes
04 Sep

Relief is coming for commuters affected by a shortage of buses on routes serviced by the Transport Board.

The Transport Authority says public service vehicles will be reassigned to the affected routes.

Chairman, Ian Estwick says some owners have already expressed a willingness to transfer to those routes.

He made the revelation during a meeting with PSV operators at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Center Sunday evening.

There, it was announced that the Transport Authority will be adopting a zero tolerance approach to bad behavior in the new Constitution River Terminal.

Security will be in place to man the new concourse and the police force will have a permanent presence in the new facility.

The wearing of uniforms will also be enforced.

Mr Estwick called on owners to break the cycle of bad behaviour as many are shirking their responsibilities and are not holding drivers and conductors responsible.

Director Alex Linton says the Transport Authority wants to set a new standard and way of doing business in the PSV sector.

Police public relations officer, Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss pledged the force will maintain its presence in the new terminal.
