Over a dozen tourists and other Belizeans were stranded at about 7:00 a.m. Monday at the Cayo Welcome Center trying to get a bus to Belmopan and other parts of Belize. David Allen, who was waiting at the bus terminal with his two daughters told us that he has urgent transactions to do at the Lands Department today, but is unable to catch a bus. Traffic Officer Manuel Romero told us that difficulties in catching a bus from San Ignacio to other parts of the Country is especially so on Mondays. He advises residents to be at the terminal by 6:30 a.m on Mondays, but given the sporadic nature of the buses, their travels even then cannot be guaranteed. Romero tells us that even though there are regulations for buses to have a back up; especially when there is a delay, bus owners are not following through. While a bus from Benque was to have arrived at 7:30 a.m on Monday none came.
