To reduce the impact of the Briars to Gordon’s Post road closure on members of the public, it has been agreed that there will not be any increase in bus fares for passengers utilising the public transport service routes A and G as a result of the longer journey into Jamestown.
The environmental, social and economic consequences of increasing fares have all been taken into consideration in arriving at this decision. It is also intended to monitor the usage of these routes to ensure that there are no capacity issues for the public transport service. Should sufficient demand exist, the possibility of providing an additional bus to cater for extra passengers will be given consideration.
Copies of revised timetables for routes A and G are available from Joshua’s Taxis, the Tourist Office and the Customer Services Centre in Jamestown.
