Long waits for buses in north
THE TRANSPORT BOARD was able to put fewer than 20 buses on the road this morning, forcing commuters to find alternative means of transport to their destinations.
While those waiting at bus stop reported long waits, no large groups were spotted waiting at bus stops.
Few people were seen at the Speightstown Bus Terminal and when a bus destined for Bridgetown arrived, only three people boarded.
Minibuses, ZRs and taxis were utilised by many. However, some people chose to wait out the industrial action which has so far crippled the board’s operations.
They occupied themselves with radios and newspapers.
Early this morning, there was no service in the north of the island.
Reports indicate the board’s management has been able to mobilise additional resources to get more buses running. (BN)
