Monday, 10 June 2013 22:51(JollofNews) – The Gambia Government has launched a new public transport system to succeed the Gambia Public Transport Corporation (GPTC) which was disbanded last November.
The Gambia Public Transport Service Company (GTSC) which currently has 50 new Ashok-Leyland buses will provide reliable means of transport to the Gambian public.
According to Isatou Njie-Saidy, vice president of the Gambia, GTSC which was established as part of the government's efforts to alleviate poverty will provides relatively cheaper means of transport and services the public especially low income earners.
Mrs Njie-Saidy added: "GTSC will not only bring relief to the travelling public, especially low income earners and students, but will also generate a lot of employment opportunities both directly and indirectly. The economic benefits are huge in terms of the number of people who stand to benefit, from the general manager right down to the fruit and other food item vendors who would be commuting on the buses."
