Discussion: As minibus operators across St. Vincent demand support from the government yet again, one social commentator has made proposals that could change the sector.
Mikhail Akers, known for pushing discussions on national issues has made some key proposals that could reshape the public transportation industry in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
His proposals were made in a Facebook post yesterday and One News SVG received his permission to reshare the post.
Now is the ideal time…
- Form an Omnibus Cooperative
- Each member contributes a minimum of $25 per month, this goes towards investments that will benefit each member
- As a society, lobby to import vehicle parts, oils and tires at a reduced tax rate
- Open a gas station/ car wash, sell members fuel at a reduced rate
- Start a Scholarship program
- Uniform each member
- Remove members guilty of speeding , recklessness and unsavory behavior
- Start a Group Health Insurance, how many members of the industry take their health seriously?
