Bus service resumption delayed by BIU

A meeting called by the Bermuda Industrial Union for this morning delayed the limited reintroduction of a bus service “until further notice”, the Government said last night.

The Department of Public Transportation said the eleventh-hour cancellation of the service, scheduled to start this morning, came after the BIU called a meeting for 8am. It is understood the meeting took place online.

A government spokesman said: “The DPT apologises for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the public for their patience.”

The BIU did not respond to a request for comment last night.

The Royal Gazette has approached the union and the Government for comment today, but received no response.
