Troubled public transport company pioneer easy bus limited says they will be back on the road by next week if they manage to conclude their discussions with KCCA on the concessions the latter had promised them in the agreement, which include dedicated bus lanes on the road, among other things.

In a statement, the company whose buses were impounded by URA over an 8 billion shillings tax debt says they  stand by the agreement they signed with KCCA and KCCA should also do the same.

Citing the fact that over 2million people in Kampala use public transport, pioneer says the buses are really needed on the road and its these negotiations that will see to that.

Experts have however warned that it will be very hard to implement the contract especially the dedicated bus lanes on Kampala’s small roads

  1. Those experts do not know what they are talking about. it is possible to designate lanes for buses in kampala. The roads where they ply are spacious enough and a bus lane can only be fixed in the city center not necessarily beyond Electoral Commission on Jinja Road for example. KCCA please help Pioneer out. the people of kampala need those buses
