No Bus And Ferry Service Again On Wed

September 21, 2021 | 4 Comments

“There will be no public bus and ferry service again tomorrow [Sept 22], the Government has confirmed.

The ferry service has been suspended as of this morning [Sept 21] and the bus service has been suspended since Friday [Sept 17], with staff members of both services expressing concern about “health and safety concerns at work.”

A Government spokesperson said, “There will be no public bus and ferry service tomorrow, 22 September. Both services have been interrupted due to a labour dispute. The Ministry of Transport will provide further details in the update tomorrow.”

The island is currently experiencing a major Covid outbreak, with over 1500 currently active cases, and some of our public transportation workers are unofficially understood to be among those who have Covid.

The public transportation system is one of multiple services and businesses impacted by the record high active Covid cases, and other services that have been impacted include, but are not limited to, the Accountant-General cashiers in the Government Administration Building is closed this week, reduced services in the Courts, some post office deliveries have been impacted, some residential garbage may go uncollected due to staffing shortages, schools buildings are closed with remote learning in place, and there are also multiple businesses in the private sector being affected.

    What are we hearing from the ex Jet Blue gate agent, aka Minister of Transport? Taking a page from the book of his leader?

      People are dying, Mr. “comfortably numb.” You might want to cut down on the venom and do something a little more productive, like getting yourself immunized so you don’t have to worry about getting yourself and your entire family killed.

    Yes, but if everyone who expressed concern about health and safety at work right now could refuse to attend with impunity, only the anti-vaxers would be at work!

    I would *love* to hear the science behind why anyone working on a ferry thinks they’d be at risk (and I’d be curious if those same concerns are held outside of work)
