Taximen cry foul


Share post:


That is how unhappy taxi drivers at the Bridgetown Port are describing the competition they are getting from the big tour operators, that yesterday saw their anger boil over into protest.

The members of the Bridgetown Port Taxi Co-operative and the independent operators fumed as they watched a tour bus belonging to one large tour operator running a shuttle service from the port to Bridgetown, business which they said should have rightfully fallen to the taxi drivers.

Marson Craigwell, who has been operating in the port for the past eight years, said some of his colleagues had parked overnight to cash in on the Bridgetown shuttle business which he said had become “the crumbs” left over for the taxis by the big tour operators.
