On the 29th May, 2019, in a letter to your newspaper, I stated among other things the absence of the Fare Structure being displayed in the Mini Buses of Route #21 in Region Two, Pomeroon – Supenaam on the Essequibo Coast, as required by Law, and for many, the most important clause as it pertains to the Mini Bus Code of Conduct.
I was told that there was a Mini Bus and also a Hire Car Association, which may now be defunct or is not functioning effectively, but whether that is so or not, these buses as per the Laws must have a Fare Structure displayed, so the public can be informed of the cost of using this very important means of transportation. The big question is what the Police Force in this Region did or intends to do about this breach of the Law, which is only to the benefit of the owners, drivers and conductors.
I have been informed by an article in the Stabroek News of Sunday 9th June, on page 17, that the Bartica Mini Bus Operators donned their uniform recently, which is good. The Guyana Police Force, Ministry of Business, Road Safety Council – what are they doing as regards this long existing problem in Region Two?
The people of this region are renowned for their hospitality and not aggression, but sometimes we do say that enough is enough.
