Letter to the Editor: Public Transportation System Needed!

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Letters-to-the-EditorTourists don't feel very comfortable while driving in a small golf cart often jammed between trucks and taxis. They don't feel safe and high traffic during high season counteracts to tourists' need to relax while on vacation.
How about a Public Transportation System?
Rather than expanding our current taxi service, a system of small buses could be the solution or at minimum be part of a traffic solution for our beloved Ambergris Caye.
Any expansion of the current traffic situation would be hindering growth of tourism. A loss of reputation would be followed by less visitors as the result.
A public bus system with electric powered, small to medium sized buses would be pleasant for everyone, locals and many tourists alike.
Tourists would pay $5 or $7, locals/residents $3, kids would be free for the ride. Three or four buses would be driving back and forward between the DFC area/or beyond and the soccer field in town. If these buses are electric powered (noise and exhaust free), we could show the island's dedication of becoming environmentally friendly.
Parents of school kids would be pleased as kids receive free and safe transportation to and from school.
A public bus system would accommodate the needs of many tourists and many of our island's permanent residents. Such a bus system would also be helpful once traffic to the North would increase to a point of adversity.
