STILL NO WORD ON FATE OF TWO BUS DRIVERS AT CENTRE OF VIRAL VIDEO

The Gros Islet Mini Bus Owners Association is yet to give an update on an investigation into complaints against two of its Drivers.
The drivers in question had two separate misunderstandings with passengers one of which led to one driver threatening to drive a mini bus loaded with passengers into the Castries Harbour.
The incidents occurred on January 9th 2019 and video of the exchanges were published on social media by passengers who witnessed them.
The excitement began when a female passenger questioned the driver’s reasons for refusing to allow a student onto the bus.
In addition to the drowning threat, the Route 1A driver allegedly threatened to hit the woman with a cutlass.
The incident prompted an emergency meeting with the drivers association; the Transport department and the parties involved in the dispute in an attempt to determine whether disciplinary action should be taken against two Gros Islet mini-bus drivers at the center of heated exchanges with the group of passengers.
Mr Claudius Joseph, president of the association did promise a report on the outcome the following week but has failed to deliver.
According to reports, the drivers remain on active duty.
The incident has brought to the fore the need for training for minibus operators and led to new calls for the sector to be better regulated.
An exercise the Department of Transport and the National Council on Public Transportation says they are hoping to execute in the New Year.
