THE transportation system is overcrowded with about 500 public service vehicles (PSVs) and 2 200 taxis, according to owners and drivers who say revenue is taking a bit hit.

Chairman of the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT) Roy Raphael has called for the implementation of a route committee, which would help to monitor and regulate the number of PSVs and taxis on the island’s roads.

Raphael told the WEEKEND NATION that a suggestion had already been made to Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley about the setting up of the committee.

“We are hoping to set up a route committee, whose main responsibility would be to regulate the number of PSVs and taxis.” (RB)
