Georgetown minibuses demanding an unreasonable fare for a short drop

Dear Editor,

I am totally confused when I hear minibus operators shouting that ‘Government don’t have control ova we, is we bus.’

These minibus operators must understand it was the Guyana government under the leadership of Mr Hoyte that allowed the buses to come in duty free, so that the bus operators could make a living and commuters could travel without paying more that what was considered fair and reasonable.

However, these Georgetown bus operators are demanding a most unreasonable sum for a short drop.

I am calling on the relevant ministry to act urgently to prevent the working people being fleeced by the bus operators.

Yours faithfully,
W P George
