The Fiji Bus Operators Association (FBOA) is urging the public to plan their travel and prepare for service disruptions from Thursday as Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasa heads for the Fiji group.

FBOA General Secretary Rohit Latchan says the travelling public should use the opportunity in the next 48 hours to ensure they top up their essentials while buses are still running and to be aware that any bus operator may suspend services based on weather conditions.

Mr Latchan says the safety of passengers and drivers is paramount and they call on bus operators to use their judgement to suspend services if they deem it risky.

He said the FBOA is liaising with the Land Transport Authority, the Ministry of Transport and the National Disaster Management Office to ensure safe services are provided until such time they are suspended.

Based on weather forecasts, the travelling public should prepare for bus services to be completely halted by Thursday afternoon across the country until the cyclone has passed and it is safe to resume services.
