NEW BUS schedules for the Transport Board will see fewer buses on routes dominated by ZR vans and minibuses.
The changes, which come into effect on Sunday, said manager of marketing and corporate communications at the Transport Board, Lynda Holder, will impact on routes such as The Pine/Wildey in St Michael and Silver Hill, Silver Sands and St Christopher in Christ Church.
Holder explained to the DAILY NATION yesterday that in some instances there were upwards of 70 privately owned public service vehicles (PSVs) operating on these routes, and as such there would now be “limited coverage” by the state agency, which has been struggling to meet its mandate in the face of reducing financial support from Government.
“Those routes that have access to other means of travel will definitely see reduced coverage from us,” Holder said.
