Thursday, April 11th. REPORTER News Staff - 

The Belize Bus Association and Taxi Federation of Belize have amalgamated to form a new Belize Public Transport Association following a meeting last Thursday in Belize City, which included stakeholders representing sectors including bus, taxi and water taxi operators. It is the first step in an effort to unify Belize’s public transport system, according to Daren Stuart, spokesperson for the association.

Stuart explained that plans to amalgamate have been in the works for some time, but currently the amalgamation includes the bus and taxi associations with interest from the water taxi association. The association also hopes to include airline operators in its membership.

The constitution of the new association was prepared as early as last August, however, it was not until the recent meeting at the Coastal Zone Management building in Belize City that the associations met to discuss the matter at length, among other issues currently affecting the transport operators.

The government was also represented at the meeting, in which it was expected the Minister Edmond Castro would attend, however, he was called away to an emergency Cabinet meeting regarding the ICJ referendum challenge last week. In the months ahead, the association will continue working to grow its membership.
