Opening of EC$4 million new East Line Bus Terminal to improve experience in public transport

The new EC$4 million East Line Bus Terminal located on Wellington Road, Basseterre, opened with great fanfare on Tuesday December 11, 2018, fulfilling a promise made by the Minister of Public Infrastructure, the Honourable Ian Patches Liburd, to improve the commuting experience for passengers and drivers travelling from Basseterre to Dieppe Bay via Cayon.

The previous arrangement for buses travelling the East Line Bus Route saw the vehicles lining up on Branch Street and Johnson Street, which brought much frustration for residents of the area. The residents often complained about the hassle in accessing their homes – as the buses were parked directly in front of their gates.
