The Minister for Transport, the Hon. Vijay Daryanani has visited the Gibraltar Bus Company to thank the staff personally for their excellent response over these very testing COVID-19 times.
The Minister took the opportunity to listen to concerns the staff had and assured them that the Government would be there to support them, listen and act where possible to do so.
Following this very positive and constructive meeting and on the back of one of the main concerns raised, the Government said that it wishes to remind the public to strictly adhere to the Public Health regulations that apply to the wearing of face coverings on buses. These need to be worn at all times when on the bus, fully covering the nose and mouth, for the safety of Bus Company staff and fellow users of the service.
The Government would ask that the Public please respect the drivers so that they can carry out their duty, providing a service for the Public.
Minister for Transport, Vijay Daryanani, said: ‘One cannot be but grateful for the excellent frontline role these men and women of the Gibraltar Bus Company are playing, during what are unprecedented times and under very demanding circumstances, maintaining a public service running that is vital to our community. They can rest assured they will always have the full support of this Government.’
