Commuters should have cleaner bus terminals and improved toilet facilities come Tuesday, but Transport Board buses will still be in short supply.

This Easter weekend, all the terminals were being cleaned, painted, and bottled water distributed to commuters. The bottled water distribution will continue until water fountains are installed.
