Operation Take Back underway
OPERATION TAKE BACK has already started to show some success.
Speaking to reporters during a tour of the River Bus Terminal, where drivers and conductors were in uniform for the first official day, Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley said the programme, which is designed to eliminate indiscipline in that sector, had already clamped down on a number of pirate operators and would be moving into phase two soon.
The acting Attorney General said he was pleased with the 98 per cent response from the workers.
Lashley said moral suasion was currently being used to get operators to comply with the dress code, but that in a few weeks he would be taking the Transport Authority Act to Parliament which would make the wearing of uniforms mandatory.
