(Andegna.com) A memorandum of understanding signed between Addis Ababa Road Transport Bureau and City’s Education Bureau marked provision of Anbessa Bus transport service for free for about 21,000 teachers, including TVET teachers, school directors, supervisors and trainers in the city starting from coming Monday.
Government’s Public Service Employees Transport Service Enterprise (PSETSE) started free of charge pick-up and drop-off public servants a year ago this include teachers. However, teachers have been complaining on the service delivery, where, teachers are forced to wait for the drop-off buses half a day.
The Addis Ababa City Administration said, preparation of identification cards will be finalized on the weekend. According to the office of the Mayor, the annual cost of the service is estimated to be over 40 million Birr calculating 11.25 Birr a day per head with possible increase to the cost.
Addis’s Light Rail Train, Anbessa City Bus Enterprise and PSETSE are parts of the public transport services in Ethiopia’s capital where getting public transport has become very challenging for majority.
