Rusty Bus Af­fair!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

With so much talk about the rais­ing of fares by bus driv­ers in Saint Lu­cia, one would think that ahead of this the ser­vice would be im­proved. Sadly, the bus ser­vice in Saint Lu­cia re­mains woe­fully in­ad­e­quate. Not only is the be­hav­iour of some bus driv­ers of the worst kind, but in many ar­eas com­muters are left to fend for them­selves after 6 pm, as well as on Sun­days and Na­tional Hol­i­days. To make mat­ters worse some buses are not even road­wor­thy; we came across the in­te­rior of this bus which plies the Castries - Gros Islet route com­plete with its ex­posed and rusty up­hol­stery. Com­plaints by pas­sen­gers to the driver about the dam­age this was caus­ing to their cloth­ing fell on deaf ears.
