By BBN Staff: Yesterday afternoon in Belmopan, Minister of State for Transport Hon. Edmond Castro, Chief Transport Officer, Tirsio Galvez, and other officials from the Transport Department met with taxi operators from Benque Viejo to discuss issues affecting them.
According to a release that BBN received, an understanding was reached on a number of issues including unfair competition from buses coming across the western border. It was also agreed that those buses would not be allowed to pick up regular passengers once they have crossed over into Belize.
The release ends by saying, “The Minister of State for Transport will also discuss the issue in Cabinet and would meet at a later date with the taxi operators to communicate and finalize the decisions to resolve the issues.”
