Transport Minister to meet with BTOA as leadership team refuses to meet

A Government spokesperson said this evening: “The Ministry of Transport notes the questions that the media has posed following the BTOA press conference on Tuesday. 

“On Wednesday, the Minister of Transport, the Hon. Wayne Furbert JP, MP, invited the BTOA Executive to meet on Friday, June 7, as he wishes to discuss the concerns raised by the BTOA, while ensuring that the Government solves the problem of the transportation gaps experienced by our residents and visitors. It is the desire of the Minister to discuss these items in a collaborative fashion and not through the media.

“Collaboration is key to making transportation work better and the Minister looks forward to continued dialogue with the BTOA Executive as the Government works to improve transportation in Bermuda and reduce the complaints from our residents and visitors.”

The Ministry will update the public and the media following tomorrow’s meeting.

BTOA leadership group spoke directly to TNN News this evening and stated “ They haven’t agreed to meeting with the Minister of Tranport the Hon. Wayne Furbert tomorrow (Friday).”

“The Minister of Transport is playing a dangerous game and he not is not being totally honest with the public.”

“We are not meeting with the Minister Furbert,  this behavior via media press releases is unacceptable and disrespectful, so no we won’t be meeting with anyone tomorrow.”
