The Transport Board is addressing some concerns raised by commuters over noises heard while aboard the buses. Speaking from the Board’s head office at Weymouth, Chief Operations Officer Lynda Holder said, “This is something that we have been monitoring now for some time and have continued to address.” She continued, “As you are aware, the buses create little to no engine sound whatsoever and as a result, it
becomes much easier to hear cabin noise. Our buses carry many internal components particularly for the air conditioning system and in many instances, the poor state of some of the roads is creating some rattling. Extensive road works are being carried out on major routes so we will be seeing a solution soon but in the interim, we are working with the service provider to do everything possible to reduce any noises.”
The Transport Board continues a strict maintenance schedule with the electric buses with many of them already reaching the 60,000km mark.
