Palma's EMT public bus service is under the spotlight again, not for poor services or failing to run on time, but for carrying unwelcome passengers - fleas and cockroaches. Staff working for company Traslimp, contracted to clean the city's fleet of buses, have informed Asitsa, which owns the buses, that fleas and cockroaches are common on board the capital's buses. In a statement issued by the union USO yesterday, reports of passengers having been bitten while on board buses were also included. According to USO, so far only one EMT bus has been fumigated by pest control experts. “The problem remains unresolved and the situation poses a risk for public transport users, cleaning staff and bus drivers,” the union stated. Not the sort of publicity the public bus service needs amidst glowing presentations of its new buses and a campaign to encourage more people to use the public transport system.
