First day jitters


Share post:

The first day taking a Transport Board bus to school was a bit of a challenge for Shanika Nurse, a first form student of the Deighton Griffith School in Christ Church. 

Nurse, who was unsure of the schedule of the St Patrick’s bus, found herself in the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal after 9 a.m. yesterday waiting for a bus to school. 

While waiting, Nurse was able to interact with (from right) Minister of Education Ronald Jones, Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley, and Transport Board acting operations manager Gina Boyce as they toured the terminal to get an idea of how the system worked to get children to school on time and commuters to their various destinations.
