September 16, 2020 | 3 Comments

[Updated] “Due to the hazards of overhanging power lines and vegetation left in the wake of Hurricane Paulette,” the public bus service will be unable to resume this morning [Sept 16], officials said.

A Government spokesperson said, “The Department of Public Transportation [DPT] advises the public that due to the hazards of overhanging power lines and vegetation left in the wake of Hurricane Paulette, the public bus service will be unable to resume on tomorrow [Sept 16] morning.

“The DPT can advise that the relevant agencies are making every effort to remove these hazards as soon as possible to make the roads safe for the bus service to resume.

“The public will be advised at the earliest when services will resume.”

Update 10.15am: A Government spokesperson said, “The Department of Public Transportation [DPT] would like to clarify that the public bus service is currently unable to resume due to low hanging communication cables, not power lines as originally stated.

“The relevant agencies are continuing to make every effort to remove these hazards as soon as possible, so that the bus service can resume safely.

“DPT appreciates the patience and understanding of the public. A further update will be provided as soon as possible.”

    ‘Patience and understanding of the public’? More like disgust and resignation from the public as the bus drivers ‘drop tools’ at the first chance they get. How about running routes, and there are plenty, where there is no danger from communication cables? No, much easier to lay off at home in the ac, with full pay, while the most vulnerable have to walk or search for lrides or pay for taxis.

    Organise? Piss up? Brewery?

    Why are tractor trailer trucks carrying containers managing to drive on the roads? They are taller than a bus. Sounds like another reason to have paid vacation and avoid the summer heat
