Medina Administration incompetence: 88 new buses languish and rust
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina’s Administration reveals incompetence as 88 new buses languish and rust at Sans Souci Port, despite their arrival in the country nearly three years ago, and after being assigned to the Metropolitan Bus Service Office (OMSA) more than one week ago.
A crew from the dealer Magna Motors has been conducting maintenance on the buses, but the years of abandon have begun to take their toll with damage, such as cracked windows and rusty bodywork.
An OMSA team readies the buses with OMSA logos, and change the paint which featured the colors of the Santo Domingo Metro.
Elcaribe.com.do reports that 14 of the buses were parked at the Navy Base and separated to deliver to the OMSA facilities, from where they are expected to start service to passengers, who’ve been complaining of waiting at bus stop for hours on lack of vehicles.
