Commuters should have cleaner bus terminals and improved toilet facilities come Tuesday, but Transport Board buses will still be in short supply.

This Easter weekend, all the terminals were being cleaned, painted, and bottled water distributed to commuters. The bottled water distribution will continue until water fountains are installed. 

However, after starting with 48 working buses yesterday morning, six broke down, and by mid-afternoon only 42 were still operating.

A Transport Board source, who requested anonymity, told the Sunday Sun the board was facing major challenges, none of which can be fixed overnight. (DB)
