Comfy reclining cushioned seats, AC, a bathroom and a smooth noiseless ride - that's the dream of every Belizean bus commuter. There are only a few local buses on which you can enjoy those luxuries, so the other buses just have to cut it because they get you where you need to go. But the UNDP's Japan Caribbean Climate Change program along with the Belize Bus Association and other partners met today at the Biltmore to develop a plan to replace those old worn buses with new road-worthy ones. This is to enhance the commuter comfort but also to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
Now this won't happen overnight of course, the team hopes to bring in these news buses over the next 10 years.
