Transport Board auctions old buses


Share post:

Forty buses were up for auction this morning at the Transport Board depot in Mangrove, St Philip.

Transport Board’ general manager Fabian Wharton said the Board had no more use for them and most of them were without engines and transmissions.

“They are basically shells and are over 20 years old,” he said.

More than 30 people – mostly men – in the Public Service Vehicle sector and the automotive and mechanic industry, attended the auction which got underway after 10:30 a.m.

Auctioneer George Edghill said the vehicles could be used for alternative purposes to transportation such as storage facilities or canteens.

Most of the vehicles up for grabs were Mercedes, Marcopolo, Caio, Busscar, Hino and Sprinter.

Many of the vehicles were rusty and several parts were removed. (SB)
