Park-and-ride for Sando shoppers from Monday


A possible solution has been found for the parking problem hurting Christmas sales in San Fernando.

San Fernando Mayor Dr Navi Muradali said yesterday the City Corporation had agreed to recommendations made by Local Government Minister Suruj Rambachan and Housing Minister Roodal Moonilal for the car park at the National Academy for the Performing Arts South Campus to be used as a park-and-ride venue.

President of the San Fernando Business Association, Daphne Bartlett, told the Express on Thursday the parking issue was as bad as Port of Spain.

Muradali said that as of Monday at 7 a.m. until Christmas Eve, the service would be available until 6 p.m.

He assured commuters they can park safely and free of charge, and use the buses taking them into the main shopping area.
