GOVERNMENT’S PLAN to merge some privately-owned public service vehicles (PSVs) with the state-run Transport Board is quickly becoming a reality.

The Transport Authority, the regulatory body overseeing public transportation on the island, yesterday published tender notices inviting private interests to take part in the pilot project. Tenders close on September 16.

And residents on routes from Bridgetown to Sturges, St Thomas, to Martin’s Bay, St John, and Edey Village in Christ Church, will be the first to experience the hybrid service.

But already private operators are assuring the public that every effort will be made to keep travellers and operators safe as they ply the routes from 5 o’clock in the morning to midnight every day for the six-month project.
