Transportation woes

There is no immediate end in sight to the service delivery issues plaguing the Transport Board.

The state-run entity says even though it is putting additional systems in place to limit the problem, the challenges might continue in the immediate future.

. . . A plan of action including the acquisition of additional buses is being implemented but the results will not be seen immediately. Furthermore, as had been indicated previously we will continue to monitor the service schedules in operation and where necessary adjust them to produce more favourable results for the commuters,” the Board said in a release.

We are asking the traveling public to be patient and to work with us, as these changes are implemented to improve our service delivery. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused,” the statement added.

    The bus system that is currently in place needs to be flooded and put into the trash. In my opinion there is no schedule that these buses follow, what about transfers and have buses crossing each other instead of having to go downtown all the time….take a trip to NYC stand at any corner and see how the buses run…this bus system has been around to long for this nonsense that’s taken place….GET IT TOGETHER and stop giving the riding public ridiculous excuses that no one believes
