NCD Public Transport Providers, Users, and Regulators workshop, 2018

The CIMC through the Transport and Infrastructure Sectoral Committee hosted the NCD- Public Transport (Providers, Users, and Regulators workshop in October last year. The two day workshop with the theme “Breaking barriers and building bridges for improved public transport system in Port Moresby” was officially opened by the Minister for National Planning Hon. Richard Maru, MP and was officially closed by Hon. Wesley Nkundji, MP Minister for Transport.
Various stakeholders from the public transport industry in the city were attracted to this workshop where they were engaged to look at ways services can be improved to meet required standards through appropriate policies and legislation. The workshop was used as an avenue to introduce service providers to new laws and policies particularly on information about the National Transport Strategy, Policy, and Legislation on Public Transport. It was seen as setting the platform for dialogue for transport sector agencies and other partners to address regulatory and operational issues concerning public transport systems in Port Moresby. 
The issues and challenges of the public transport system in NCD were identified and recommendations were made for consideration. It is hoped that from these recommendations, a strategy will be developed to improve and make the system convenient, reliable and efficient for service users.
