NTC Stops Route 176 Port Louis-Flacq, What About 222 Rose Hill-Rempart?

NTC has just stopped offering the Port Louis -Depinay – Lallmatie – Flacq 176 route. I hear people say that it was not profitable. So ‘bus individuel’ are not taking that route in the morning. I can understand that with so many buses in the Flacq-Port Louis route. Now I hear talks that they’re saying that 222 Rempart-Laventure/Petite Retraite-Lallmatie-Quartier Militaire-Reduit-Rose Hill might also be stopped for the same reason. As if it’s not profitable.

According to my research on Google, they put only 9 buses on the 222 route and 10 in the 226 (Rempart-Curepipe) as per a couple of years ago. Imagine with all the crowd waiting and rushing to get buses in the morning. They could easily have put an extra 3 buses from 6-8 am and from 3-5 pm. But no, you have to rush, the conductor will stop you cause the buses go FULL during that time with standing. More


No water in Lallmatie for 2 days, what about H1N1?

I wonder how CWA can cut water supply in Lallmatie for two days when they know about the Grippe A H1N1 virus that’s out. It’s being campaigned across the island to wash hands more often and all… I find 1000L missing from my tank. Relatives tell me they have NO tap water for 2 days… At least CWA could have waited for the crisis to be over to resume their water saving policy…

Orange/Mauritius Telecom: Over 1 month and no phone line yet: will I be able to get MyT by 2010 please?

I have been a good word-of-mouth promoter of MyT and how it’s way faster than competition… and more accessible around the island. I’ve been using it a lot last year. But that’s all to it.

I have applied nearly 2 months ago for a telephone line (no, I don’t have one in my new house yet), when it’s supposed to be 3-6 weeks according to agents on their 8902#1#1 Hotline.

“No, you can’t apply for MyT and a telephone line at the same time!” said the lazy-looking lady who even prevented me from filling my application form properly at the Flacq branch of Orange. “Those sections are to be filled after technicians install the line. After that you can apply for MyT and they’ll do line conversion and all.”
