Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Sunday Transport 

Bus to Mulomulo
Here is something for the government and the Land Transport Authority.  Buses do not run on Sundays in Mulomulo.

A family that goes to church from Mulomulo Secondary school to their church in Nadi  hitches rides   in passing vehicles.  This happens every Sunday. I have picked up many people travelling to the main road on Sundays.

Anyway, last Sunday this family flagged down a passing van and on their way to church was stopped by Land Transport Authority officers and the driver was booked for carrying passengers.

Now, can LTA or other authority provide transport for these people who depend on public transport on a Sunday?

I know that there is a law that prohibits the use of non-PSV vehicles for public transport, what about places where there is no public transport? What is the alternative?

Do they expect them to walk the ten K's to Nadi?

I’m just saying, eh.
