This is one of the letters which I have written to
Prime Minister Rowley over the past 5 years.
Dear Dr. Rowley,
Congratulations on your 37th Month as Prime Minister of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
You were spot on during your quest for the Prime Ministership when you told our country that transportation is a quality of life issue and encouraged us to dream of a 1-hour commute into the capital city. 37 months later, the commute is worse with its concomitant increase in fuel emissions, time wastage and the enlarging of our carbon footprint.
Here’s a question I suggest you pose to the Board of PTSC:
“How can PTSC double its ridership within 12 months and what non-monetary state support would be required?”
Such a question would force the policy makers to think differently and design strategies from an end user perspective.
