As usual for PSVs

PRIVATE SECTOR operators said yesterday’s strike by bus workers at the state-run Transport Board had minimal impact on commuters.

“It was business as usual for us,” said Morris Lee, of the Association of Public Transport Owners. “The Transport Board as an institution is the smallest provider.”

He and Roy Raphael of the Alliance Owners of Public Transport estimated, in separate interviews, that the board did not carry more than 25 per cent of the travelling public.

To emphasise his point, Lee said that there were almost 600 public service vehicles (PSVs) – 300 ZRs and 260 minibuses – on the roads as compared to a maximum of 150 Transport Board buses on any given day.
