TASI extended again

Government is to further extend its experimental programme of combining the services of the Barbados Transport Board and private operators of public service vehicles on some routes.

A release today from the Barbados Government Information Service (BGIS) quoted the Transport Authority as saying the Transport Authority Service Integration (TASI) project would now run through to December 31.

“The Transport Authority Service Integration (TASI) project on the Edey Village and Sturges routes, scheduled to end on August 31, has been extended until December, 31, 2016,” the brief release stated, adding that the transport regulator said it was looking forward “to continuing to provide effective and efficient public transportation solutions in the future”.

The TASI project, which was launched in December 2015 on the Edey Village, Christ Church route and later on the Sturges, St Thomas route, was first extended in June.

Director of Transport in the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) Alex Linton said at the time that the extension would be followed closely by the addition of new routes.

However, today’s BGIS release made no mention of additional routes.

    I live in Welchman Hall, St. Thomas and I belief that the Barbados Transport Bus which is the BM buses should take back this route. On Sundays only one TASI work and the other TASI does be off the road regularly with problems, only solve for half a day and returned with the said problems often.

    On each of those vehicles a placard should be inscribed by notice ” “How is my driving?” with a contact number.
