The state-owned Transport Board says it’s doing its best to have an adequate number of buses on the road by the start of the new school term next week, but its Board Chairman Gregory Nicholls warns that the board continues to have challenges.

Speaking in an interview with Starcom Network News, Mr. Nicholls said they now have more buses available than during a particularly difficult period late last year, but are not yet up to the number he’s aiming for by month-end.

Mr. Nicholls notes that the age of the fleet is a big problem.
