Dunkley Talks about Bus and Minibus Dispute
The current dispute between bus and minibus operators and the government of Bermuda, former Premier and current Shadow Minister of Health Michael Dunkley, JP, MP, says that a middle ground must be met.
“Minibus operators have a great role to play within our community, so there has to be some medium ground that we can find,” Mr. Dunkley said.
Since there have been so many bus cancellations as a result of the ongoing dispute, Mr. Dunkley suggests that the government take another look at the current schedule and see if all of the routes are truly necessary.
“People are not moving around the island like they used to, so having a frequency of routes is not necessary right now,” he said. “[Routes] could be retooled so that one, coverage could be where it is needed and two, buses are not driving around wasting gas with no one on them.”
Mr. Dunkley wonders if, within the past six to nine months, the government has analyzed any of the routes to see how much they are being used and if continuing with this many routes is truly cost-effective.
