The Gross sales and Advertising Supervisor of Karibia Metals Ltd, Shenaz Narcisse is confused as to why the Nationwide Council on Public Transport, (NCOPT) desires to crack industrial indicators on public transport minibuses, which they declare hinder the view of passengers.

Final month, NCOPT introduced a crackdown towards public transport minibuses with unclear industrial indicators this month.

“The home windows of public service minibuses shouldn’t be coated with all these ads,” stated NCOPT vp Kentri Fredrick.

“The sponsors of the packages, the individuals who packed their automobiles, we instructed them that in January 2023, we will probably be again to regular,” he added.

Responding to his feedback, Narcisse stated passengers can see by the prints of the branded bus.

“So far as I am involved, the passengers are searching as a result of once you wrap that bus, they do not wrap the home windows,” Narcisse defined.

He added: “Even with the again glass, it has a mesh, you see it instantly, you do not see prints.”

Narcisse stated if passengers do not look outdoors, all they should do is get on one other bus.

“That sort of follow is occurring all around the world. It is an enormous advertising technique,” he stated.

Based on the Karibia Metals gross sales and advertising supervisor, who stated the corporate has two branded buses, one plying the Vieux-Fort-Castries route and the opposite, the Castries-Gros Islet route, NCOPT has ulterior motives.
