By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Transport announced yesterday evening that it has reached an agreement with the Belize Bus Association regarding the issue of foreign bus runs into the country, which the operators say have affected their businesses.

The meeting was called after the association wrote to the Minister of Transport, Edmond Castro, last week threatening a nation wide shut down of transport services. The meeting was attended by high level government officials including Castro; Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte; Minister of State for Investment, Tracy Panton; Transport CEO, Ruth Meighan and Chief Transport Officer, Tirso Galvez.

The bus operators were represented by President, Thomas Shaw. During the meeting, it was agreed that moving forward, foreign buses would be limited to one run per day from each country. “Those buses would only be allowed to drop off passengers within the country who traveled with them from across the border. And, on their return trip to Guatemala or Mexico, they would only be authorized to pick up passengers heading across the border into those respective countries,” a release said.

In order to reflect these stipulations, it was agreed that the necessary changes would be made as soon as possible to Statutory Instrument (S.I) 63 of 2009, or the S.I would be completely repealed and the stipulations included in the permit for the buses entering the country.
