GOVERNMENT’S decision to phase out hiace buses is commendable and long overdue.
Hiace buses are not comfortable and therefore not suitable as public passenger vehicles.
I am wondering why Government had tolerated hiace buses for a long time.
I also wish to urge the Road Transport and Safety Agency to come up with a routing policy to make people’s movement’s easier.
I cannot imagine that in the 21st century, all buses coming from various destinations within Lusaka have to terminate in town.
RTSA should help sanitise the road sector by providing a roadmap which all transporters, especially public passenger couriers should follow.
Imagine travellers from Chelston going to Chilenje and vice-versa being forced to go to town first. It is time consuming and a waste of resources.
We look forward to a day when a person going to UTH from Kaunda Square will have direct service.
Please RTSA, think outside the box, for once.
