Bus terminal ticket office reopens

The Hamilton Bus Terminal's ticket office has reopened two weeks after it was closed due to “unpleasant fumes”.

However, despite a thorough investigation, the source of the problematic fumes has not been identified.

A Department of Public Transportation spokesman said: “Once the Department were alerted to the fumes, action was immediately taken to find the source and fix the problem.

“The Department were assisted by the Department of Environmental Health, the Health and Safety Office in the Ministry of Health and a private HVAC contractor. In addition the Corporation of Hamilton checked manholes and conduit in the vicinity. However, despite the thorough investigation of all possible causes of the fumes, none were found.”

The ticket office was cleaned and sanitised and, with the fumes now gone, the booth reopened with staff returning to work yesterday.

The office was initially closed on September 11, forcing commuters to walk to the General Post Office or the ferry terminal on Front Street to purchase tickets.

A spokesman at the time said the Department of Public Transport was working to resolve the issues as quickly as possible, apologising in advance for any inconvenience caused to the travelling public.
