Transportation for 50th Anniversary Human Chain Link

On Monday, 28th November 2016, the Transport Board will be partnering with the Ministry of Education to provide transportation for a number of students, in both the Primary and Secondary Schools, to and from various locations around the island to allow them to participate in the Human Chain Link 2016.

Unfortunately, we are unable to cover these transportation requirements without some level of disruption to our regular service schedules. We therefore anticipate some delays to our regular schedules during the preparation and execution of this iconic activity.

Please take note of the above and plan your travel accordingly as this will require a number of our buses to complete the activity and this will occur during the morning peak hours. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Road Closure- Walker’s Road
