Govt: ‘School Bus Routes Will Be Prioritized’

December 29, 2017

“Morning and afternoon commuter [or revenue] runs that incorporate school bus routes will be prioritized starting next week, as the Department of Public Transportation continues to work with the limited number of buses available,” the Ministry said this evening.

“While the emphasis will be on accommodating primary and middle school routes, the regular runs will also be available to senior school students. Unfortunately, dedicated school buses cannot be offered at this time,” a spokesperson said.

“Circumstances will improve as new buses arrive [starting in January with others to follow] and existing buses in the fleet are overhauled.

“Bus users are encouraged to bookmark the bus scheduling pages on the government portal, or, subscribe to receive bus cancellation notifications by email.

“An RFP for fleet replacement is drafted and is being reviewed prior to issuance. This is a longer term project that will be undertaken as budget allows.”

    In simple terms, have the new schedule reflect what can be sustained and reduce the costs. It will never happen. It’s like the Post Office. Past its time but runs at a loss to safeguard jobs.

    • Dean says:

      Although the PLP didn’t create the problem, hopefully they will be the government that fixes it.

    Governments change, civil service administration continues on, mostly unchanged. Take the US for example. Federal workforce pay and benefits are completely out of whack with the private sector. A 2011 American Enterprise Institute study found federal employees receive wages 14% higher than what similar workers in the private sector earn. These huge payouts are the result of automatic increases, bonuses, seniority rules and gold-plated pensions that are all but extinct in the private sector. Now factor in benefits, and the compensation premium leaps to 61%. And finally, factor in how that federal workforce is also shielded by rules that make it practically impossible to fire or discipline poor/inefficient employees, to relocate talent, or to reassign duties. Wait……Sound familiar?

    The Bermuda Government has a big problem managing this small island with more laws on the books than you can posibly imagine is it is all about their control.

    I am telling you that the Bermuda Government to come up with something better for every one they have to do better with less. they are no smarter than we are.

    STOP NOW, don’t read any more !

    It is not what you can do here , it is what you cant do here.

    On the subject of bikes,thousands ride bikes so other can drive around in fancy cages, you got a road problem because there is not enough space, so what is so wrong with ” Flexi Time ” space the time and you will space the trafic.

    There are different stokes for different folks going on here it is not what your are, it is who you are,that is to put it bluntly.

    Class distinction is rampant even in politics 2018 is just around the corner i forcast is will be no better than the last 20 + years .

    Bermuda is in a sate of depredssion and will be for years to come because we are living on borrowed spent money.

    Civil disobiedience is on the rise ,even on the Hill, simply because people are angry, why do you think i am writing this ?

    We have no culture to speek of, no nation foods or national dress, blue jeans and “T” shirts beats out Bermuda shorts. Cod fish and potatoes , peas and rice will will also kill you in a NY minute.

    People have just given up, they have locked their doors .

    Direct taxaction is one of the main causes of dissatisfaction, Pre- paid import duty is very U.B.P. when you see 20 % of your hard earned money being wasted on unesssary services and hand outs.

    Tell me what do you have to show for the money, Fancy hats at the Throne Speech. All so very colionial !

    Did you know is cost you money to feed the prison system and our police state driving around in their fancy $60,000 Jeeps
    with leather seats. It cost them more money to collect a speeding and parking ticket, do the math.

    It all about mis ~management as the cost of living spirals out of control food and medical are clasic examples.

    Tell me , what are the Banks doing ?

    What is destroying Bermuda in two words TAXATION & INFLATION.
