NBA Suspension Of Services 

PR – According  to  the  Minister  of  Health,  Hon.  Nickolas  Steele,  we  need  to  find  a  balance  between life and livelihood. Based on the steady increase in Covid-19 positives cases, deaths and the current conditions that we are operating under such as: 

  1. No  assistance  in  the  sanitization  of  buses  after  each  trip.  Assistance  is  given  with  sanitization  liquid  only  for  passengers  boarding  the  buses,  however  with  already  high  operational costs, bus operators are unable to fund this at the time. 
  2. The  use  of  public  transportation  to get  to and  from  testing  sites without  persons being  aware of their Covid-19 status. 
  3. The rise in the number of operators testing positive for the Covid-19. 4. Less persons traveling along with reduced operating hours due to the curfew. 

To  combat  the  spread  of  Covid-19,  we  advise  that  all  our  members suspend  your  operations from Wednesday 8th September 2021 to Wednesday 15th September 2021 in the  first instance. We are unable to see the balance between life and livelihood at the moment.  Both our life and livelihood are in jeopardy and we urge all operators to choose life now. 

The  National  Bus  Association  has  held  many  consultations  with  medical  professionals  regarding Covid-19 protocols and vaccines that are available, the ultimate decision is now on  you the members. 

Simultaneously, we wish a safe recovery to all those experiencing this dreaded virus and Our  condolences go out to the family of those who would have lost their lives.   

We thank everyone for the continued support and understanding in this regard, as we move forward to building a safe Grenada. 


The National Bus Association.
