School buses ready to roll in NCD

Students in Port Moresby will trial out an ambitious transport plan as of this year.
Three 70-seater buses imported from Australia will ferry students from designated areas.
National Capital District governor Powes Parkop fulfilled his vision to ease the transportation dilemma with an efficient and efficient travel plan for the general public within the city, especially school children.
“This will be on a trial and error basis but I believe it will serve its purpose,” he said.
“I will order more buses if this goes well.”
Mr Parkop said that student were disadvantaged during rush hours in the morning and afternoon and were discriminated by public motor vehicles - PMV - Papua New Guinea's ramshackle version of a bus service.
He said that he had noted these problems and attended to them, however, asked the students for their cooperation and support.
“I appeal to the student in NCD to make this work because this is for your own good,” Mr Parkop said.
 The buses will start ferrying students this month from designated tours.
