Orderly start to school year


Share post:

THERE WAS ORDER; not the expected chaos at the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal as the new school year got underway today. 

The buses were running smoothly. There were no long lines, but mostly empty stalls with few people sitting on the benches.

That was the scene as a number of officials visited the terminal for at least an hour viewing its operations.

They included Minister of Education Ronald Jones, Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley and officials of the Transport Board including general manager Sandra Forde, operations manager Gina Boyce and customer service officer Carla Phillips along with chairman of the Transport Authority Abdul Pandor.

Speaking to the media, Lashley announced that in the near future some private buses will be integrated into the public transport system.

He also said a policy would soon be put in place that children who fail to get the Transport Board buses before 8:45 a.m. will be expected to pay bus fare. (LK)
