To give more travel options to Fijians rather than opting for their own personal vehicles every day of the working week, the Government will be piloting suburban shuttle stations at three sites in the country.
While speaking on the 2021/2022 National Budget, the Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says right now, we have some restrictions on the number of people who can travel together in public transportation vehicles.
He says as more people are vaccinated, those restrictions will start to ease and the Government is laying the groundwork to make public transportation easier and more convenient once Fiji is fully reopen, particularly in densely populated areas.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the three sites will be in Nakasi, Valelevu and Lautoka where transport will pick working Fijians from their homes to their places of work.
He adds that they are also moving certain Government offices to these areas to take advantage of this growing shuttle network.
The Attorney General says these shuttles are more convenient because they will traverse within suburbs on a regular basis, so getting to the stops themselves can take a short walk rather than a long drive.
