Minister of Transport Says Upgraded Buses are Overdue

Upgrades to Belize’s public transportation are to begin no later than this December.  For several months, the Ministry of Transport and members of the Belize Bus Association have been at loggerheads over how to move forward with the future of Belize’s public transportation system. Some of the operators are not happy with Floralia’s plan to expand its bus runs into the western and northern parts of the country.  The operators are concerned with how this will impact current operators, whose lineup of buses is outdated compared to Floralia’s. Minister of Transport, Rodwell Ferguson, says it is not their intention to take away from their revenue, but the upgrades are overdue.

Another concern stems from the oversaturation of permits, specifically for the routes that Floralia is vying for. The operators feel that the routes will eventually become monopolized by the southern-based bus company.
