We at the Transport Board, even with all of the challenges being experienced, have always sought to ensure the safety of our commuters and staff and would not knowingly allow a bus to operate in a condition that could lead to a major injury to anyone using the bus.
Therefore the video, which appears to be of a Transport Board bus in a state of disrepair, which is presently circulating on social media, has been actively engaging the attention of the management of the Transport Board and a thorough investigation is being carried out.
It would be irresponsible of the Board to place a bus in this condition on the roads of Barbados as this would be hazardous to the safety and health of the commuters travelling on, and the staff operating, such a bus.
Unfortunately, we are unable to ascertain from the video the bus number or location or either if this is a recent situation and would appreciate any persons who have any knowledge of this reaching out to us.
In the interim we will continue to investigate this matter.
