Chaguanas/Sando maxis back at St James Street
Green band maxi taxis which operate the Chaguanas to San Fernando route have been returned to their original location along St James Street in San Fernando.
The maxi taxi stand was temporarily relocated to Short Street, San Fernando late September 2017 as part of a pilot traffic plan which was expected to relieve traffic congestion in the city.
Drivers complained that they were not consulted on that relocation which they said moved them further away from the catchment area of Upper High Street, Library Corner.
The maxi operators, however, are glad to be back to their original parking arrangements following the initial relocation which they had strongly opposed.
Despite their confusion as to why they needed to be relocated in the first place, President of the Route 3 Maxi Taxi Association Julien St George assured that green band maxi operators will continue to service the travelling public from the St James Street location.
