Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan says a policy framework to treat with the issues in the national transportation network is expected to be brought before the Cabinet on Thursday.

Sinanan was addressing members of the National Taxi Drivers Network at the Ministry of Works and Transport building in Port-of-Spain on Thursday morning.

he taxi drivers held a brief protest, calling for Sinanan to meet with them and saying they would not support any legislation to legalise ‘PH taxis’ before Sinanan came down to speak with them.

He said the policy will not recommend the legislation of ‘PH’ taxis but ways to move forward to solve the issues facing taxi drivers and commuters.

Sinanan said the public can also expect to see an education programme rolled out in the coming days to encourage more citizens to become taxi drivers.
