Bus terminal gets “facelift”

Take a walk on the north side of the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal and you will see the fantastic work of the Rotaract Club of Barbados reminding you to give service.

Today, in collaboration with Harris Paints Barbados, the Rotaract Club painted a mural on the wall, beautifying the outside of the terminal.

Community Director of Rotaract Barbados South Kristen Scantlebury said the club hoped the mural would inspire the public.

“We are here to commemorate the closing of World Rotaract Week . . . Today we have a combined group of all the Rotaractors across Barbados and we decided to do a mural. We chose this Fairchild Street Bus Terminal because its public, persons pass here all the time, whether they are driving, walking or catching the bus. The whole theme is Service Above Self, our motto. We hope that when the general public come and they see it, they embody that as well,” Scantlebury said.

Retail business development manager at Harris Paints Kimberly Douglas said the company subscribed to the club’s motto and was glad to be a part of the initiative.

Director of Transport for the Transport Authority Alex Linton praised the Rotaract Club and Harris paints for a job well done.

“I am very happy with what I am seeing here today. The Transport Authority welcomes these types of initiatives and we look forward to greater initiatives in the future . . . I think it would go a long way in promoting that we are looking to improve the general conditions for the public transport system,” he said.
