Traffic officers are to start conducting spot checks to ensure that all crew members of public service vehicles are fully vaccinated.
According to Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, there will be no curfew for students returning to schools. This will enable the students and parents to travel to the schools.
“Every crew member of a public service vehicle which include a driver and a conductor or turn man and any other crew member must be fully vaccinated. We agreed with the transporters on that one and they are aware. We have also agreed with traffic (officers) who will be making spot checks. If they find the driver or turn man is not vaccinated, they can decide that the bus or taxi will not proceed,” the minister for Works and Transport said.
He also advised those parents that would want to drive their children to school to plan their journey well. He asked them not to rush and also said all luggage on public transport should be checked.
Furthermore, he added that he engaged with public transport operators and they agreed transport fares to be charged.
Consequently, he asked the operators to display these charges agreed upon.
In order to ensure observance of SOPs, the minister said all operators should base from designated taxi parks or bus terminals.
Police will impound any bus or taxi they find parking or loading from the streets. Or outside the designated parks or bus terminal.
The minister advised the travelers to also use PSVs from the designated taxi parks or bus terminals. He told them to resist booking tickets or pay any money to anyone outside the designated parks.
