    Since they have time on their hands why don’t they wash the buses that are in use.

    • really says:

      This has now gone beyond a joke. The PLP has proven that it does not have the ability to provide a working and reliable transport system.

      It is time to offer it to the market and privatize it or fix it.

      We did not have this problem this year under the OBA, so the PLP must be the problem.

      • puzzled says:

        All part of the plan ‘really’.

        Nothing wrong with their Gov credit cards and pay.
        You like Swiss Cheese?

      • Cracker says:

        The problem is that the oba/UBPERS invested all the tax payer money into a sail boat race instead of the buses and public schools, just to name a few.

        It’s safe to assume that right now the 12 seat party is trying to decide which clown will be the next court jester and lead the experimental party from the grave. Appoint Trevor Moniz or Dunkely their attitudes will grow the UBP 100% strong again. :)

        • Toodle-oo says:

          And I bet you were so incensed at Trevor’s ‘boy’ remark .

          ‘Cracker’ , yeah , right .

          • Ringmaster says:

            The problem is that the PLP did not invest money into new buses, or bridges, or causeways, or schools between 1998 and 2012. This problem did not suddenly appear.
            Here’s the truth, that is not wanted. Despite the global recession, the fact is that Bermuda has around $50million a year in revenue in excess of normal expenditure. That would pay for a fleet of new buses, scholarships, school maintenance and all the fancy benefits for Bermudians. However, the PLP spent so much between 2006 -2012 that $180million a year has to be paid to foreign bankers. That is the problem.

      • drunken ursula says:

        really you such a fool….those bus problems have been around at least 18months OBA did wrong !

      • Juice says:

        Not a big fan of the PLP, but this has little or nothing to do with them. These problems existed well before the election and didn’t just show up after the PLP took power. This problem grew and festered under the OBA and is just now becoming critical.

        • Kathy says:

          Agree completely.

        • Jus' Wonderin' says:

          Not at all…you never saw 74 runs cancelled in a day under the OBA, considering the buses were s%#% then and are still s%#% what’s the problem?!

      • JO says:

        Just be quiet ok and STOP blaming the problem on the PLP. The OBA created this problem and kept it hidden. NOW the PLP has come in and trying to clean up a lot of mess that the OBA didn’t address and kept it secretive. At least the PLP are decent enough to inform the public of the cancellations. Did the OBA do that? No!!! They just went on about their business, not caring about the public and left many people standing at bus stops not knowing that buses were cancelled. At least the PLP are letting the public know so they can make alternative arrangements. Your comment is so foolish. It’s obvious you are brainless and still bitter because the OBA loss. Get over it!!!

    • somuchless says:

      It ain’t in their contract and if they do. Biu will strike nation wide.

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      They want the minibus drivers to wash the PTB buses as well. The mini buses don’t break down, they never miss a route, and their golden meter always gets paid. Also the Minister has hidden the contract. Why would anyone at PTB work to change this golden situation? Everyone is happy, except the taxpayer, that is being charged at least triple! But no one in charge can get a handle on this. And the Union is happy, they used to have Union disagreement weekly, now it’s non existent. Who is monitoring who?

  2. somuchless says:

    Yesterday I saw a pic of rayban on a bus when he first became the transport minister.

    That ride only lasted one day cause it was all for show.
    One: He knows how bad the service is.
    Two: He couldn’t handle riding the bus like us adverage joes.

    Now he drives up and down in his air conditioned gp car.

    • drunken ursula says:

      yup just like Fahy and Dunkeley did for photo up

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      If his GP breaks down, Roadban’s first call will be a limo, second, a golden minibus, and third… do we still have taxis?

  3. Sherbet man says:

    PLP you’re a joke buh! How um supposed to make work?! I voted you lot to be better then them wtf

    • LOL says:

      This is an example of a OBA sheep. This farm animal has always voted UBP & OBA.

      • Onion Juice says:

        “This farm animal has always voted UBP & OBA.”

        This slave always votes plp…’cause I aint got no skills.

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      I was told there are over one hundred and fifty minibuses in Bermy, I don’t believe that could be true. Anyone know an exact figure?

  4. Joey says:

    The government bows down to the unions scared of them all in fact they are there core supporters with Jason in Hand we just have to wait for Chris to get his shot at a ministry ………. they all getting paid for staying home theylikely tore up the new bus route schedule and planning more overtime with less buses RLMAO the joke government layers are peeling off fast ……life is no better and soon to become worse

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      They’ve been tearing up that schedule since The Government got elected, it’s in its fifteenth year! And Roadban has been the Minister for most of it! He’s not a newbie, just plays like one. It’s time for accountability!

  5. Family Man says:

    It does seem strange that most buses are fixed overnight and ready to go in the morning only to have multiple buses break down again during the day. Are the repair jobs so bad that the duct tape is falling off by lunch time or is it more a case of drivers wanting the afternoon off and calling in minor issues?

  6. Stinky D. says:

    We are now at 74 I’m taking bats that we reach a hundred by the end of the week
    Any takers

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      No bets here, MInister Roadban can get it to 100 percent, we’ve every confidence in that. He’s not even playing like he’s in control anymore. So far Government have lost control of transport and education.

  7. wondering says:

    New training is required
    New tools are required
    New methodology and systems of work
    No more senseless bandaid fixes
    Stop negating the fact that the fuel is low grade and the filtration is inadequate
    These are common rail engines and are being run as naturally aspirated 1st gen diesels….

    Someone own it please
