Inter-urban transportation: MINTRANSPORT suspends recalcitrant agencies

The Minister of Transport, Jean Ernest Massena Ngalle Bibehe has suspended the activities of 85 inter-urban road transport agencies nationwide.

The measure which was effective from 21st March 2019 was taken after the agencies refused to conform to the regulations enforced in spite of a period of grace given them.

Inter-urban road transport agencies suspended: The genesis

Officials statistics indicate that an average of six thousand people die from road accidents each year.

The recurrence of road accidents prompted Government to make a diagnosis of the situation.

Amongst the findings are the poor state of the roads and bad working conditions in some of these travel agencies.

Managers were given a one-month timeline to comform to the laws and decisions laid down by Government.

The Ministry of Transport awarded licences to all 16 companies that respected the guidelines.

A total of 85 did not; they are presently considered operating clandestinely.

It is on this basis that the Minister of Transport, Jean Ernest Massena Ngalle Bibehe signed a communique, suspending the activities of these companies for a period of one month.
