Getting around Tobago as a visitor or resi-
dent is expected to become easier as the To-
bago House of Assembly is making moves
to purchase 50 new Brazilian-made buses
for the travelling public.
The fleet will include three different size
buses, with seats for 28, 36 and 50 passen-
gers respectively. Several of these buses will
cater for persons with disabilities, while some
will also service the tourism sector.
The announcement was made by Secretary
of Infrastructure and Public Utilities Councillor,
Gary Melville, in a March plenary sitting of the
Assembly's legislature. The THA was debating
a motion for improving the public transporta-
Melville disclosed that in February 2015, the
Executive Council engaged Brazilian public
transportation companies, Volare, Marco Polo
and Agrale as possible providers of the buses.
The exercise was also used to evaluate solu-
tions for public transportation inefficiencies,
and to determine the best vehicles to suit To-
bago's unique terrain. Marco Polo, Melville
said, is the preferred choice.
Councillor Melville said while these new
buses would address the needs of the domes-
tic commuter, the Assembly and its private
transportation agents have discussed ways to
meet the demands of the tourism sector by
connecting tourists to local attractions in a
timely and convenient manner.
"It is the intent of the Assembly to advocate
for the formalisation and expansion of the pri-
vate Maxi Taxi body with a view to buttress-
ing the current scarcities in transportation," he
