Board may end diesel service
The days of minibus and route taxi operators filling up with fuel at the Transport Board’s Roebuck Street facility appear to be numbered.
This became clear after Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley disclosed over the weekend that he had a major issue with private operators who used the board’s headquarters nightly to pump diesel.
Speaking at a Democratic Labour Party (DLP) branch meeting at Good Shepherd Primary School in Fitts Village, St James, on Sunday night, the minister hinted that a decision would be taken on that issue very shortly.
“I certainly believe that we need to get those ZR?and minibus drivers out of the Transport Board at night in terms of collecting fuel.
“It is causing headaches. It is causing major problems in there.
I say no more about that, but a decision will be made very shortly on it,” he said.
