Board: Cut in wait for buses
In the wake of complaints from commuters of having to wait hours to get a bus, the Transport Board is reporting that passengers spent less time waiting last week.
With the new school term beginning either last Monday or Wednesday for almost all public schools, the state-run agency said it was able to stabilise its fleet following an extensive maintenance and upgrades programme.
“We have been able to cut the wait time and commuters are saying they have seen an improvement. It is not yet ideal, as it is continuous process but we are working on it,” chief operations officer Lynda Holder told THE NATION by telephone.
“They also noted the fact that you are not seeing buses broken down as you were seeing before, so we are putting our systems in place and we have been working with a plan. I think persons are now saying to us that they are seeing the results of it.” (TG)
