Since daylight saving is around the corner, can we get all the relevant stakeholders regarding transport to come up with a solution on tackling the travelling issue.
As it is by 5am it’s already daylight and commuters are waiting for the bus as early as 6:30am, now imagine when daylight saving kicks in, it will be light by 4am.
In my neighborhood in Cunningham the need for more services is as high as a coconut tree, especially in the morning rush hour.
Just this morning during the normal rush hour, we have passengers crammed in the bus right up to the doorway, only to reach Nabua and some were told to get off as there was a Police booking team up ahead at the Asco Motors garage area.
I believe it’s unfair on both parties, that is the bus drivers/companies and the police, because the customer will be told to get off the bus by an angry driver and second the police officers stopping the bus thus causing the customers to arrive late at their intended designations.
Also if the buses could come in on time as we seem to have noticed a change in the bus schedule, maybe it’s due to the cold mornings we’ve been experiencing.
So I plead with all stakeholders to find a solution to this national problem, before something drastic happens.
