Transport Minister Stephenson King has called on the National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT) to deal with non-conforming minibus operators.
King, also responsible for infrastructure, did so while welcoming the NCOPT’s concerns regarding the state of roads in Saint Lucia.
” I also would like the National Transportation Council to address the issues pertaining to minibus operators who are violating the laws which govern the operation of public transportation in Saint Lucia,” the former Prime Minster stated.
In addition, King called on the NCOPT to deal with minibus operators who violate the rights of others, including young women.
“I would like them to also address those issues because the issues that are before us, notwithstanding the fact that we all know that the road conditions are not good. But they must also be honest and address the issues which are confronting them,” the Castries North MP stated.
King spoke to reporters Wednesday on the margins of the launch of Energy Awareness Month.
