Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 10, 2019 (FREEDOM)

Taxi and tour operators licensed on St. Kitts will have to apply for a temporary pass from the Nevis Tourism Authority to ply their trade on the sister island.This formed part of several amendments that came in the Nevis Taxi and Tour Bus (Amendment) Bill, 2019 passed on Tuesday.NIA Minister of Tourism Premier Mark Brantley tabled the bill which he said is intended to improve the standard of service provided by taxi and tour operators on Nevis.

“Operators licensed or trained by the Ministry of Tourism in the federal government or the St. Kitts Tourism Authority that seek to operate in the prescribed areas in Nevis they must produce a valid taxi id permit and must be granted a temporary pass from the Ministry of Tourism in Nevis.“That is important because more and more we see now with the sea bridge taxi and tour bus operators on St. Kitts they want to drive onto the sea bridge with a bus load of tourists and bring them over or they may well wish because they see over here that we don’t have enough taxis.
