The Bus Terminal in Belize City was closed over the weekend, surprising many Belizeans.  Minister of Transport, Edmond Castro spoke about this matter on our COVID-19 Update Belize show yesterday. He stated that limited bus runs would be authorized to create a backbone in the transport system. These bus runs are to transport essential workers to and from work. Those bus lines include Westline, James Bus Line as well as Maria, BBOC, Canul, Tillett, and Lid. According to Minister Castro, a total shutdown of transport services is not ideal, especially when in the State of Emergency.

Minister Edmond Castro also explained that the bus operators that will run are being given a tax exemption on gasoline. He noted that this will only apply to four buses per bus line.

Edmond Castro, Minister of Transport: We are trying to work out a situation whereby they get a little break with their fuel taxes for these operators who are there to run and keep the highway and the essential workers to get to work. However, James has four buses that will be operating on the highway. If James needs a fifth of sixth bus the incentive does not apply, only for the four buses, the incentive is for those four buses. So if the population is more than thirty five or forty per bus then it’s his responsibility to put the additional bus”

In speaking with the Minister, he told us that other bus companies are allowed to run but will not be given the tax exemption on gasoline as those that are authorized.
