THE TRANSPORT AUTHORITY has reminded minibus and route taxi operators that the specified uniforms must be worn every day whenever they are on duty.
According to a statement from the Transport Authority, in 2015, the Authority, in accordance with the provisions of the Road Traffic Regulations 1984 Section 43 (f), and in conjunction with the Ministry of Transport and Works and the Barbados Licensing Authority, instituted the uniform and dress code for operators of routed privately-owned Public Service Vehicles (PSVs).
“A significant majority of operators have seen the value of this initiative and consistently comply. However, a minority of operators continue to defy this requirement,” the statement continued.
The Transport Authority also urged commuters to assist in ensuring that their service providers complied with the established standards, and were advised to call 427-1778, or 427-1PSV, when they observed infractions of the uniform and dress code. (MTW/BGIS)
