PSV bosses: Let’s talk

IF A NATIONAL CONSULTATION on transportation is ever called, the owners of public service vehicles (PSVs) say one of the items they want high on the agenda is the conversion to electric vehicles and its potential to transform the industry.

Both Morris Lee and Roy Raphael welcomed the recent call from the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) for a national consultation and review of the sector.

In a media release last week, CTUSAB general secretary Dennis De Peiza said transportation was too important a plank in the social and economic well-being of a country and an efficient service was a necessity.

He warned that over time, issues which emerged had called into question the management, regulation, coordination, policing and efficiency of the system, and if ignored, could create a “national crisis”.

Chairman of the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT), Roy Raphael, said they had also called for a consultation because they wanted their voice to be heard and were too important to be left out.
