THE PROPOSAL HAS not yet been submitted to Government, but public service vehicle (PSVs) owners are contemplating asking for permission to regulate their own fares.

Chairman of the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT), Roy Raphael, told the WEEKEND NATION that the suggestion was raised during a meeting with Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley last Friday.

However, he said before an official proposal was put forward, consultation would first have to take place among members of AOPT and the Association of Public Transport Operators (APTO).

Raphael said the suggestion did not mean that PSV owners would be able to charge whatever they wanted. (RB)
