PTSC starts free North-South service

The Pub­lic Trans­porta­tion Ser­vice Cor­po­ra­tion says it will be pro­vid­ing free shut­tle ser­vice to and from Port-of-Spain and San Fer­nan­do to­day for those who need trans­porta­tion.

This ser­vice start­ed at 8 am for the Port-of-Spain to San Fer­nan­do route leav­ing at City Gate and im­me­di­ate­ly on the San Fer­nan­do to Port-of-Spain route, leav­ing at the Bus Ter­mi­nal.

The ser­vice will con­tin­ue every hour.

The PTSC has been forced to ramp up its ser­vice as many pedes­tri­ans try­ing to trav­el across the coun­try have found them­selves strand­ed as taxis, max­is and PH ve­hi­cles op­er­at­ing in sev­er­al parts of the coun­try have al­so pulled their ser­vices due to flood­ing.

Apart from this, sedans and low ve­hi­cles are un­able to make it through the flood wa­ters be­tween Munroe Road, Ch­agua­nas and the Grand Bazaar In­ter­change on the Uri­ah But­ler High­way.

The south­bound lane of the high­way is still im­pass­able and po­lice sta­tioned at the In­ter­change are now on­ly al­low­ing trucks and high SU­Vs which they de­ter­mine ca­pa­ble of mak­ing it through on the north­bound lane, which still has wa­ter as high as three feet in the flood­ed area.
