Number of school buses will increase - significant delays were experienced by commuters Monday morning

Significant delays were experienced by commuters travelling Monday morning, but the Transport Minister Vijay Daryanani says these are only partly to do with the closure of Line Wall Road.

The Government has increased the number of school buses to meet the demand arising from the reopening of the schools.

An additional five buses will serve the S3 route, providing a bus every five minutes from Rosia Plaza to Europort as of 8.15 in the morning. Further services will also be provided from other points.

Mr Daryanani said the changes had been made following a thorough review of data about the use of buses, catchment areas, and the requirement for bus services. He spoke to Jonathan Sacramento.
