Home News Plans afoot to ease minibus congestion in Georgetown – M&CC
In an effort to ease congestion in the city, plans are afoot by Mayor and City Council (M&CC) to have several minibuses relocated to permanent parking lots. This is according to Public Relations Officer (PRO) of M&CC, Debra Lewis, who elaborated on the plans to provide minibuses of routes 41, 45 and 46 with permanent parking lots.
Lewis indicated on Monday that a plan to facilitate the minibuses on a long-term basis is currently being formed with the intention of making it ‘’convenient and accessible’’.
The PRO disclosed that it is more than likely parking facilities will be provided for these minibuses at three locations: “We have identified three areas in which the buses can be relocated that is convenient and accessible. The three locations would be Industrial Site, Ruimveldt, one will be in North Cummingsburg and one in Kingston.’’ Lewis highlighted however, that only a few of the minibuses from each route will be provided for as the intention for this relocation is to ‘’free up the congestion in the city.’’
She explained that the minibuses that do not get transferred to the future parking facilities will continue to operate at their current station within the city. “It’s not everybody we’re going to relocate, in terms of the buses, just a few of them. It’s just to free up the congestion in the city. The ones that don’t get relocated will stay at their current parking area.’’ Commenting on when this change will take effect, Lewis said a decision will be made on Thursday where the entire administration will come to a resolution.
