PSVs: Hike too high

Social Share

Some public service vehicle (PSV) operators are lamenting that the bus fare hike to $3.50 from next month is way too much at this time.

But one group representing the owners said it had arrived right on time, though another comprising operators said the hike was more to bail out the ailing Transport Board than assist them.

At the Constitution River Bus Terminal in The City, some operators said they were sympathetic to the plight of the travelling public following Government’s announcement of a 75 per cent hike.

During last week’s Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals, Prime Minister Mia Mottley revealed that bus fare would be moving from $2 to $3.50, effective April 15. However, on Monday night, the Prime Minister said that frequent commuters of the Transport Board would save between 30 and 50 cents if they purchased ticket packages. (AGB)
