Rain causes problems for bus services

Wed, 13 Apr 2011


The Community, Culture and Leisure Minister  has revealed a number of the Island's buses don't work when it rains.

 

David Cretney faced questions in Tynwald from North Douglas MHK Bill Henderson.

 

He asked why buses are turning up late or sometimes not at all.

 

Mr Cretney says road works, road closures and heavy traffic can impact on services and he admitted there've been cancellations because an exceptionally high numbers of buses have failed.

 

He says the problem will be sorted when new buses arrive in June.[Play audio file below]
