The Public Transportation union (PTU) condemns the recent attack on an AUA student by an unlicensed taxi operator.
This incident highlights the need to improve the laws of Antigua and Barbuda to make conducting taxi operation without the proper license a punishable offense. Once stronger laws are implemented, strict enforcement must follow. We call on the Transportation Board and the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda to begin consultation to achieve these improvements.
The PTU further encourages all individuals desirous of joining the taxi trade to become properly licensed and to take advantage of all available training. Service excellence in the transportation business is a matter of national pride and is critically important to the success of tourism, our number one industry.
To our valuable guest we are sincerely sorry and deeply sadden, this attitude which was exhibited does not reflect the attitude and culture of our Antiguan and Barbudan people, we are a friendly people.
