THE EDITOR, Sir:

The Transport Operators Development Sustainable Service is urging all public transport operators not to become frustrated or give up because of the all-out attack on their trade in a bid to rid this country of criminal elements.

If the sector is the cause of the social and economic unrest in the country, if we are the cause of the problem, let us be the template for the solution.

Many operators have been providing their service for more than 35 years and have being serving the country well. The commuting public will know of our work and will continue to use taxis and buses. The present disruption is an agenda item to fulfil an objective of the Government. It will soon be over. Don't give up.
