GRTU calls for the Commuted Parking Scheme Fund to be used for the creation of new parking opportunities

During an MCESD meeting specifically held on GRTU’s request the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Joe Mizzi explained details about the new public transport operator and service. These included details on the acquisition by the new company, the investment it will carry out, the 15 year subsidy given by the Government and the increased service it is expected to result in.

In his intervention GRTU President Paul Abela explained that public transport is very important for our members and in fact members in the localities were transport service was poor saw their business affected as a result. Mr Abela said we should look at transport in a holistic manner because the new service provider will have little impact if our roads are still plagued with the problem of traffic congestion and parking issues.

GRTU President said that a Park and Ride system accompanied by a circular bus in the busiest localities is very important and Government should use funds from the Commuted Parking Scheme specifically for such cases and to create new parking facilities, even in conjunction with the private sector.
