Fifty bus routes cancelled
A total of 50 bus routes were cancelled today as Bermuda’s bus shortage crisis rumbled on.
The cancellations started with the 3.20pm No. 8 bus from CedarBridge to Dockyard and will finish with the No 7 bus from Hamilton to Watford Bridge at 6.30pm.
The Department of Public Transportation warned earlier this week that bus cancellations were likely to double as children returned to in-school learning.
The move meant vehicles on regular routes would have to be transferred to school runs.
Efforts by Government to negotiate a rate with minibus operators were unsuccessful, although it is believed talks continue.
Earlier bus shortages led to the Government hiring minibuses for school routes.
The crisis was worsened by Covid-19 social distancing requirements, which have slashed bus capacities.
