PTSC proposes bus fare increase.. but not yet*

65 new buses coming...

The Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) submitted a strategic plan to Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan, which recommends an increase in bus fares.
However, PTSC chairman Edwin Gooding said while this is a sensitive issue that must be faced head-on there is no immediate plan to raise the transportation cost to the public.
Gooding and other PTSC officials were questioned yesterday by the Joint Select Committee (JSC) on Land and Physical Infrastructure, which examined the PTSC management and maintenance.
Gooding also disclosed that the PTSC will be receiving a fleet of 35 buses in March and another 30 before September, which would enhance PTSC’s quality of service.
