Bus service suspended for a second time
Buses have again been taken off the roads as the service was suspended for a second time in a few days
In a press release sent at 11.40pm last night, a spokeswoman said: “The Ministry of Transport advises that the regular bus service will be suspended tomorrow (13 April 2021).
“The Department of Public Transportation will notify the public once the regular bus service is due to resume.
“The Ministry of Transport apologises for any inconvenience caused.” No reason for the suspension was given.
Buses were stopped last Friday to allow DPT staff to get tested for Covid after four bus drivers were found to have Coronavirus.
Later the service was suspended and did not resume until Sunday morning.
At the time Chris Furbert, the BIU president, said bus drivers were “up in arms” and concerned they might bring the virus home to their families.
"Because some of their colleagues tested positive, they just want to make sure that they’re fine and they’re not taking positive tests home to their family members.”
