Improve the bus service in NCD

Letters, Normal

The National, Monday, May 2, 2011

THE NCD Governor must seriously look into providing a more effective bus transport service in Port Moresby.
Waiting to catch a bus can take between 30 and 60 minutes, regardless of whe­ther it is peak or off peak hours.
The waiting is due to se­veral reasons:
* Not enough buses ser­vicing some routes;
* Buses do not service the full route; and
* Bus drivers prefer to cover shorter routes to boost their takings.
Where are the second hand buses from Brisbane?
What is happening to the much talked about ticketing system?
When will the tender to operate the buses from Brisbane be advertised?
It seems somebody has gone to sleep at the wheel.
