Transport Union  Resumes Full Operations In Grand Gedeh
By Chris Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, December 5 (LINA) - The Federation of Road Transport Unions of Liberia (FRTUL) Grand Gedeh County branch has resumed normal commercial transport services following the decline in the number of Ebola cases across the country.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency Thursday at the union's local offices in Zwedru, FRTUL Secretary General Benedict Freeman said the union has begun the issuance of tickets to passengers entering and leaving the county.

He however pointed out that  the FRTUL still has in force Ebola preventive measures, which include carrying three passengers  in the back seats of vehicles and one in the front, as opposed to two in the
front and four at the back as was the practice during the pre-Ebola era.

Freeman however noted that the regulation has triggered an increase in transport fares, as the four passengers are responsible to pay the fare for six passengers, something which he noted, cannot be done away with until Ebola is completely eradicated from Liberia.

The FRTUL local chief scribe urged passengers to make use of the services of commercial and national transport vehicles to convey goods and services from Monrovia to Zwedru and vice versa with the rapid
reduction in Ebola cases across the country.

It can be recalled that during the peak of the Ebola outbreak in the country, the Grand Gedeh County Ebola Taskforce imposed a temporary ban on local travels using commercial vehicles, except government and United Nations vehicles as wells as trucks conveying vital goods like
food and medical supplies.
