Press Release – San Pedro Taxi Drivers’ Association – August 26th, 2008 – The San Pedro Taxi Drivers’ Associations and the Ambergris Caye Traffic Control Committee will be commencing an experimental exercise to provide a low cost Taxi Shuttle service for local residents, working people and school children. Signs will be placed to designate pick-up and drop-off stops along three routes.

* The first route will originate near Victoria House and end in the vicinity of the gymnasium at Boca del Rio.
* The second route will operate between DFC on the Marine Terminal road and Boca del Rio.
* The third route will operate between San Pedrito and Boca del Rio.

The participating taxis will have identifying placards on the dashboards in the front of the vehicles. The fare will be two Belize dollars per head. The taxis will not divert from the established routes.

Initially, service may be uneven; but, hopefully taxis should pass each stop at no more than fifteen minute intervals.

It is important to remember that this is a VOLUNTARY service by the Taxi Drivers’ Associations and the cooperation and patience of public is requested until the service has a chance to become efficient.

For information please call the Traffic and Transport Office at 226-2046 Monday to Friday during regular working hours.

Note: The runs will officially begin on Monday, September 2nd, 2008.

Although the date of commencement is correctly given as Monday 1st in the Spanish version, the English one says Monday is the 2nd.

I hope this works out, great plan. However, how does one prove that they are a local resident or a working person?

Once somebody has lived here for a while and has the same routine from day to day - it doesn't take long to figure out who lives here.

And what self respecting tourist would try is jump on board with all of those machete wielding guys any way!

I was just wondering if I can buy a machete there or if I have to bring my own in my checked luggage.

Does this service operate, because I've not seen it (not that that means much)?
