TWO WORDS on the new uniform shirts for public service vehicle (PSV) operators have owners up in arms.

The words are ‘Transport Authority’ and will be the only ones allowed on shirts which are scheduled to be part of a new dress code rolling out in the New Year.

The problem, said chairman of the Association of Private Transport Operators (APTO), Morris Lee, was that owners could not put their business names or logos on the shirts.

And the man leading the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT), Roy Raphael, said members of his organisation would be meeting on Friday to discuss the issue.

However, Transport Authority chairman Ian Estwick said there was consultation with the owners on the new shirts “several times”. However, he declined further comment.

In a notice in last week Monday’s DAILY NATION, the Ministry of Transport and Works announced it would be updating the uniform and dress codes for PSV drivers and conductors. (HLE)
