Bermuda Industrial Union President Chris Furbert has confirmed that the work to rule at the Department of Public Transportation (DPT) has been lifted effective immediately. 

In a statement released last evening, Deputy Premier and Minister of Transport and Regulatory Affairs, Walter Roban said: “DPT and the BIU have agreed to commence talks early next week to discuss policy issues that will assist in clarifying work practices, on both sides, going forward.”

A spokesperson added: “DPT is working around the clock to restore the available fleet of buses to a normal schedule within the next twenty-four hours.

Meanwhile, as the warmer, summer months get underway, the Department of Marine and Ports Services is reminding the public that the ferry service remains a viable option as a mode of public transportation.

Marine and Ports reminded that the catamaran ferries are an efficient, cost effective and scenic way to commute to Hamilton, particularly from the West End.

The Department encourages the public to consider utilizing the fast ferries and invites the public to review the complete ferry schedule online at Summer Ferry Schedule 2018.
