Taxi men fed up with Port business


Share post:

SOME TAXI OPERATORS say large tour operators are driving them out of business.

And one of the voices against this is Dennis “The Menace” Marshall, who said he spent many days under a tree by the entrance of the Bridgetown Port as thousands of tourists drove by in mega coaches.

Marshall, a member of the Bridgetown Port Taxi Co-op Society Limited, said it was unfair for him to pay fees every month but was still heavily restricted.

“We don’t see nobody coming cross because they got their buses in there and we paying $100 a month to work in there. We ain’t in there illegally. All the work we used to get in there, we don’t get anymore. At least once a day we could go in and get work, but now we end up sitting down out here for two to three days.” (TSG)
