Not so smart move
Some Barbadians do not see the new Travel Smart cards as a positive step.
While the cards, which went on sale from yesterday, will save commuters some money, the concern was about first having a well-run transportation system.
“They should institute that when we have a proper bus system. We have to wait for hours and if the bus breaks down, it’s even longer,” said a woman, who gave her name as Jacqueline, in the Fairchild Street Terminal in The City.
Keno Douglas said he had no problem paying more for bus fare, just as long as there was a bus. However, he said he was not going to bother buying the cards, despite the potential savings.(CA)
