Taxi drivers: night bus service will fail due to lack of demand
Monday 18th March 2013, 8:30AM GMT.
TAXI drivers believe a new night bus service will not last long because of a lack of demand.
A number have told the Guernsey Press that a privately run night buses failed in previous years because people wanted a door-to-door service.
The drivers’ comments follow an announcement by CT Plus of a proposed overhaul of bus routes.
The earliest departure would begin at 9.30pm and the latest would end at 2.21am.
Guernsey Taxi Owners Federation president Geoff Savident, pictured, said he did not think night buses would cause a problem for taxi drivers.
‘I think if it [CT Plus] is running night buses it is going to lose so much money. I’m not trying to be naive but I know what the trade is. There won’t be the demand.’
