Driver and Receiver of the NTC Does Not Respect the Itinerary
18 Avril 2012 - The Défi Media Group
To go home early, the driver and recipient of a bus line 52 of the National Transport Company (NTC) have found an effective way to get rid of the last passengers.
Instead of finishing his journey, the driver in connivance with the recipient, have forced passengers to take palce on another bus.
A resident of St. Croix is disgusted by their behavior. The reason is that his wife was forced to join the North Station from Victoria station, alone at night. "My wife came back from his mother who lives in Black River. She took a bus from the NTC, which had as destination the Gare du Nord, "said Patrick, the husband.
However arriving at Grand River North West, the receiver will ask the lady to change buses.
"My wife has complied with the belief that the second bus went to the Gare du Nord. But he stopped at Victoria station and my wife had to complete the journey from Victoria Station and the north on foot to 19 hours. At this late hour, it is not safe for a woman walking alone in the streets of Port-Louis. She could be attacked by shady people lurking in the evening, "protested Patrick.
He informed the office of the NTC as well as the National Transport Authority of this major problem. "I hope the authorities will punish severely those persons who are not doing their job properly and put people's lives in danger. I also think that this is not the first time they do this. It's good that the directors of the NTC and the NTA are aware of these jeopardizes drivers and receivers, "said the resident of St. Croix.
The Traffic Manager of the NTC is in a meeting, the director absent, a officer explained that this case is not taken lightly and that the drivers and the recipient will be called before a disciplinary committee. The Controller of Transport National Transport Authority, Cyril Appajala, supports, for his part, that in such cases, it is important that "make the victim personally in the office of the NTC to record a formal complaint." From there, an investigation will be instituted and the driver and the recipient will be interviewed.
