BLP calls for improved bus system
AN URGENT CALL has gone out for the authorities to revisit the bus system.
Lamenting the woes of commuters across the country, members of the Barbados Labour Party had that issue high on their agenda when they resumed the Rubbing Shoulders programme today.
Led by representative for St Michael South East, Santia Bradshaw, and accompanied by Cynthia Forde from St Thomas and Dwight Sutherland of St George South, the group started in the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal and ended up in several districts in St George.
They expressed concern about the elderly in particular, who said they sometimes have to wait up to three hours for a bus, which forces them to take a taxi from town or to go to the doctor and the pharmacy. (YB)
