On Friday, May 1, 2015, the Government Spokesperson Rothchild François Jr., accompanying Departmental Delegate of the South East Pierre Michel Lafontant, visited some of the major projects in the South East which are nearing the completion. Two of these projects were important bridges in the South East. Bridge Pérédo which would connect the arrondissement of Jacmel with Belle-Anse and the bridge of St-Antoine, connects Jacmel to Bainet. Another important project in the department was the expansion of the bed of river Orangers under funding of the French Development Agency (AFD). Five bridges under construction here will protect the city from flood threats. After the total reconstruction of the St Michel Hospital building, the hospital will have an accommodating capacity of 200 beds. This hospital was seriously damaged in the 2010 earthquake, now it is being constructed with the supports of Japan and Canada.

Here is a picture of Haiti School Bus DIGNITE

On 27th January, 2015, the Haitian President Michel Martelly symbolically proceeded for the official presentation of 50 new school buses to the authorities of the ten departments of the country. This noble effort by the Martelly Government will provide free transport facilities to over 100,000 school children throughout the country. President Martelly welcomed Mr. George Mangonès, the Honorary Consul of South Korea, and requested to convey his thanks on behalf of his country to the South Korean people and its authority as their friendly gesture with a financial assistance of $5 million, has greatly supported this initiative. We may remember that even in 2013, 'Diginite' also added 50 new buses to its fleet through a donation of South Korea.

During the occasion, the Haitian President was accompanied by the Prime Minister, Mr. Evans Paul, the Ministers of Economy and Finance, Mr. Wilson Laleau, of National Education and Vocational Training, Mr. Nesmy Manigat, Communication, Mr. Rothchild François Junior and the Executive Director of the Company Dignité, Mr. Castro Arboîte. The Haitian President has expressed his vision to make Haiti a welfare state with sustainable development and he strongly believes that education is the surest path that can lead the country to such mission.

'Dignity', the Haitian school bus company was established in 1995; currently the company has a fleet over 300 school buses in 86 cities and provinces across Haiti. In the beginning, it used to carry students for a monthly fee; in 2011, President abolished the fee and made it free. In the fiscal years 2013-2014 and 2014-15, Dignité has received government subsidies of 292 million gourdes, per year, for meeting operation and staff expenses.

Chemins de Fer in Haiti, government of Pierre Theoma Boisrond-Canal

Chemins de Fer in Haiti, government of Pierre Theoma Boisrond-Canal

This is a picture of Chemins de Fer in Haiti during the government of Pierre Théoma Boisrond-Canal

Much of the activity former President Pierre Théoma Boisrond-Canal had to perform when he took office in the mid 1870s was to undo the financial and constitutional damage done by the president before him. France was on the back of Haiti, demanding a repayment of the supposed 58 million francs borrowed by President Michel Domingue, who had, it seems, borrowed in ill-faith for himself and not for the country. While this was indeed no way to start a presidency, Boisrond-Canal had had the type of history to prepare him for such work.

Route Pestel-Les Cayes, an opportunity for Josue Bazile with Agro Trans

Route Pestel-Les Cayes, an opportunity for Josue Bazile with Agro Trans

The future of Haiti relies among Haitians and once the Haitian government is able to provide a stable environment, Haitian businesses will take off for good. An example of that is with the young Haitian investor Josué Bazile who sees an opportunity in the city of Pestel where transportation has been a problem for the residents for a long time. He has decided to bring a solution to the problem.

Grand Anse Pestel citizens lack affordable and regular transit service to Les Cayes and Jeremie. Pestel native Josue Bazile began Agrotrans, a daily service, providing transit in a Toyota all-terrain vehicle.

Bazile was not funded by the government, and says people should not expect government help; instead they should take the initiative themselves to find workable solutions.

The transit vehicle will do double duty as an ambulance when emergencies arise, since Pestel has no such emergency service.

Capital Coach Line bus attacked and burned in Petit-Goave

Capital Coach Line bus attacked and burned in Petit-Goave

Here is a picture where Capital Coach Line bus became a victime of insecurity in Haiti. It was attacked and burned in Petit-Goâve

A vicious attack on a bus within the Capital Coach Line has left the 12-year-old company with up to $300,000 in damages. The attack took place on Monday, February 2, 2015 when an unidentified group of people attacked the Mercedes passenger bus that was in Petit-Goâve completing a run with four passengers on board. The bus was intercepted in the 5:00 pm daylight, the driver robbed, and the bus burned at the Andrédicette crossroad on National Road #2.

Police have weighed in that the attack could have been brought on by the fact that the bus driver was a Dominican Republic national who has worked in Haiti for the last year. It doesn't take a big stretch of the imagination, what with the recent killing of Haitian nationals in the Dominican Republic and the burning of the Haitian flag there, that this could have been the motive. However, the company itself is not convinced that this is so.

Since their founding in 2003 as the first bus company in the country, the Capital Coach Line, S.A. has built a significant name for itself offering a twice daily route between destinations like Port-au-Prince and Les Cayes, not to mention being the industry leader. Representatives of the company believe the attack wasn't on the driver, but on them, orchestrated by one of their many competitors. The incident not only cost the company money, but endangered the lives of the four passengers on board, as well as the driver, all of whom had to be rescued by the police from the burning vehicle.

National Commission for the modernization of public transit

National Commission for the modernization of public transit

Here is the newly created National Commission for the modernization of public transit in Haiti

A national commission has been installed with the purpose of discussing ways in which to modernize the public transit system in Haiti. The commission, called into effect by President Martelly with his Prime Minister and other government ministers in tow, is expected to give attention to creating a framework for incentives and the regularization of the system that is changing, but is still plagued by a deficiency in standardized practices. The big picture is the potential for the commission's recommendations to give support to the bettering of the public transportation system.
