PTSC Told to Step Up If Maxi Taxi Drivers Execute ‘Shut Down’ Plan.

by | Nov 21, 2019

Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan says the Public Transport Service Corporation has been put on notice to step up if the maxi taxi drivers hold true to their promises.

He made the comment while speaking on CNC3 this morning.

Minister Sinanan explained that while he anticipates the problem should be resolved by this weekend, he is working to put things in place.

He was emphatic as he noted that the matter should not reach to that stage though given the commitment made by the Education Ministry to resolve the issue.

Minister Sinanan empathized with the maxi drivers but also called on the public to understand the position the Government has found itself in.

THE BACK STORY:

School maxi taxi dri­vers have vowed to crip­ple pub­lic trans­porta­tion across the coun­try on Monday if the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion fails to make good on out­stand­ing payments to them.

The maxi taxi dri­vers have said there will be may­hem on the roads in all routes across the coun­try if the Min­istry does not get its act to­geth­er and pay the Maxi dri­vers.

Association President, Linus Phillip said while the drivers do not want to create discomfort to members of the public, this action has become necessary, as nothing else is working.

He said that the drivers are suffering and it’s grossly unfair to them.

He also explained that there are other problems affecting different members of the Association.
