The President of the United Minibus Union doesn’t feel there is an over saturation of minibusses on the roads. He shares the view that there is adequate transport in this regard. More in this report from Handell Duncan

There is an average of 2,000 minibusses on the roads. This figure was arrived at following a survey by the United Minibus Union. However, on any given weekday, at some minibus parks, commuters are left for extended hours awaiting transportation to get to their next destination. Yet, President of the United Minibus Union, Eon Andrews believes, there is more than enough minibus that is needed in the country.

It is no doubt that the local public transportation sector is informal. To this end, exploitation is pervasive.

But, from an investment perspective, Andrews had this response for a person contemplating procuring a minibus for commercial purposes.

In statistics provided by the Guyana Revenue Authority within the last three years alone a little over 2, 000 minibuses were imported. However, not all of these minibuses imported are registered neither are all used for commercial activities.
