This evening (Sept. 17), the Department of Public Transport (DPT) confirmed that the bus service has been interrupted due to industrial action taken by the Bus Operators.
The operators raised concerns regarding health and safety standards in the workplace.
The DPT stressed this evening that it considers the health, safety and wellbeing of all bus operators, staff and commuters the highest priority.
Furthermore, the DPT notes that its sanitisation practices strictly adhere to the safety measures required by the Ministry of Health, which include daily deep cleaning of all busses.
The DPT remains fully committed to ensuring the safest possible environment for all DPT staff and the travelling public as we navigate the pandemic.
The DPT will keep the public updated with any further changes to the bus schedule.
