THE TRANSPORT BOARD, the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) are all on the same page when it comes to the bus issue.

Their united position came after a meeting yesterday, which was led by Minister of Transport Michael Lashley, to come up with a plan to move hundreds of passengers stranded in the bus terminals at peak time because of a shortage of buses.

The meeting was held at the ministry’s headquarters in The Pine, St Michael, to address a special project that would see private transport integrated into the public system, including picking up passengers from Transport Board terminals.

Following the meeting, which included officials from the Transport Board and the BWU led by general secretary Toni Moore, it was announced that an agreement on the way forward was reached. (TSG)
