The Ministry of Transport will soon be
renovating the capital city s major trans-
port hub, City Gate, as well as increasing
the Public Transport Service s bus fleet
and upgrading the ferries to Tobago.
Transport Minister Stephen Cadiz made
this known following the distribution of
chassis to five steelbands, yesterday, at the
Public Transport Service Commission s
(PTSC) offices at City Gate.
The chassis will allow the steelbands to
move around their instruments on the road.
"Right now we have challenges with the
bus fleet. The bus fleet is aging. The average
life of a commercial commuter bus is
between seven years to ten years and then
you have to start making considerations as
to whether you are going to change it.
"Our buses, the average life of the total
fleet is upwards of 12 years, so we are way
over. We have started the replacements,"
He said he was aware of commuters
complaints regarding late buses and poor
service but the ministry was working very
hard to alleviate the problems.
"We have technicians coming in from the
various manufacturers to work with our local
technicians to speed up the repairs."
He said in the next few weeks, commuters
would see a major improvement in the level
of service offered by the PTSC.
He said the new buses would run on com-
pressed natural gas (CNG), which was a
cheaper fuel and would save the Government
"We want to see at one point that the
only vehicles allowed on the bus route
would be CNG-fuelled or differently-
Cadiz said the Ministry of Transport would
also soon have to look at replacing the fast
ferries to Tobago as they too had "come of
age." He said changing the type of fuel used
by the ferries could save the Government
as much as $100 million a year.
City Gate had been kept very well over
the decades, he added, but it was due for
renovations. He said these renovations
would be done over time as the Government
was being careful about spending, and ren-
ovations of historical buildings were usually
expensive to carry out.
Cadiz said commuters should not be
affected by the renovations as they would
be done incrementally on individual sections
