The current bus service is under-utilized and does not meet the needs of those who would be happy to use it. I want to see a system of smaller fuel efficient shuttle buses that operate more frequently and with longer operational hours. Whilst such a service may be more expensive, it will provide better value if it is actually used and may generate more revenue as a result.
I believe the current buses are far too big for our roads and potentially dangerous. They are also unreliable and not fuel efficient. An island like ours should have more appropriately sized buses that fit our roads and can get to more rural locations to service more people. With a new operator coming into the island, now is surely an excellent opportunity to start from scratch and provide the bus service we deserve.
