Paphos buses running normally

Osypa buses in Paphos

Paphos public bus services were operating normally on Saturday, a day after drivers staged a strike over pay issues.

Some 18,000 passengers, including tourists, were affected by Friday’s action, which started at 5am.

Drivers were protesting at the delay of receiving their salaries, a frequent issue since the state set up the transport system in its current form around eight years ago.

Some 6,000 pupils who use the bus to get to their schools were also affected.

The strike ended in the afternoon after the state-subsidised bus company came to an agreement with the transport ministry for an additional €50,000 to be paid next week.
