Ministry: Bus Cancellations For Monday

September 25, 2017

The cancellation of bus runs continue, with the Ministry releasing a list of bus cancellations for this afternoon [Sept 25] showing 29 bus runs cancelled today.

The cancellations have been an ongoing issue for some time, and in a statement earlier this month, the Department of Transportation said, ““The total number of 105 buses is down from 10 years ago when there was a fleet of 123. The weighted average age of the vehicles is over 10 years, while the industry standard is less than 7 years.

“Officials said the fleet has become older and less reliable as DPT operates services over 18 hours every day of the year. While the Department has had to wrestle with these issues over an extended period of time, circumstances will not consistently improve until the fleet is considerably upgraded.”

    This is crazy. Why does PTB continue to announce the cancelations moments before??? It’s wrong and unfair to de public. What pisses me off more is no one gets held accountable.

    • Wahoo says:

      Hey now calm down busses don’t grow on trees you know.

      • Really says:

        The cancelled busses should be announced in time for people to plan alternative transportation. Moments before is unacceptable. Hold your government accountable.

      • MJ says:

        you spell like this BUSES not BUSSES Learn to write proper English and spelling if your going to try be be a smart a$$!

      STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE BUS AND WALK TO WORK. WE HAD TO USE THE $$$$$$$$$MONEY FOR AMERICAS CUP & THE DOCTOR. B……. 3 YEAR COURT CASE FOR DE HOSPITAL IN BOSTON.

      • Really says:

        America’s cup paid for itself, and more. Grand Altlantic, School building overruns 60 million + and excessive amounts on golf course 20 million = not so much.

          You must be a clown from the oba that got lost in the 12 seat loser circus. The Bermuda tax payers paid big for the sail boat race now we don’t have any buses for the people.

          • Ok says:

            The AC MADE money for Bermuda.
            The Grand Atlantic LOST money for Bermuda.
            Way over your head, apparently.

        • Rocky27 says:

          Didn’t realize the number$ were tabulated on AC yet. Where could I see them, please and thanks?

      • Wahoo says:

        Haha got you wexxed dat time.

    What exactly is the problem with PTB these days, and why has it not been solved?
    Is it lack of parts?
    Is it lack of mechanics?
    Or is it simply the BIU doing its best to piss everyone off yet again without having to take the blame?

  3. Stevie says:

    All the buses brought in under the contract the previous Plp government were obsolete. Hence no spare parts.

  4. cpm says:

    What are the drivers without buses doing?
    Why are we training new drivers on a daily basis?
    Just asking

  5. Mrs Brady says:

    I thought PLP was going to fix stuff like this. All they spend their money on is trips as far as I can see. PLP needs to buy new buses now. We voted the other lot out so that you would fix things for us grassroots Bermudians. Why is this not fixed yet. My special persons card is useless.
