The Pioneer Easy Buses Company (PEB) have returned to Kampala streets two years after being stopped from operating by the Uganda Revenue Authority over Shs8bn import tax arrears.

The URA in January 2013 served a warrant of distress to the bus company for failure to clear its tax obligations and threatened to auction the company’s property.

President Museveni would later intervene, advice http://construction-cloud.com.au/wp-admin/includes/class-walker-nav-menu-checklist.php advising that buses are trying to solve the issue of congestion in the city by providing vehicles with wider bodies without many engines.

“If the government wants to decongest the city isn’t it in public interest that people import buses tax free?” asked Museveni before recommending that the auction should be halted and new ways found to encourage bus transport in the city.

ChimpReports now understands that the buses are now back in business, http://ctrdv.fr/components/com_k2/templates/default/latest.php plying the Jinja Road and Port Bell routes.

KCCA officials say new contracts have been signed after an assessment of the bus company’s

It remains to be seen if the bus company will adopt a better business model in the hugely competitive transport business in Uganda.

According to Dr. Amin Kiggundu, http://celiac-disease.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/contact-form.php an urban planner as well as a transport expert at Makerere University, among the key causes of the PEB business debacle was the lack of enough skilled Ugandans to manage urban bus companies.

“Most of the top managers recruited by PEB were foreigners coming mainly from Nigeria. While the recruitment of foreigners to manage local companies may not be a bad idea, it is imprudent to engage high salaried foreigners who fail to appreciate and understand the local urban business conditions,” says Kiggundu in an article under the headline, ‘lessons from the pioneer easy bus business debacle.’

A cursory look at the business model adopted by PEB reveals that the company did not take cost reduction as a critical business management issue.

For example, PEB was losing about Shs1.3 billion each month. A lot of money was also spent on building transit supportive infrastructure such as passenger shelters.

Continued use of the Namboole stadium car parking area as a key bus terminal also meant that each day buses are driven in the morning without passengers to various parts of the city, something that has escalated the operating costs, according to Kiggundu.

PEB also had a botched management model that allowed several workers to manage buses.

Kiggundu opined: “In many developed country cities such as London, Tokyo and New York a big bus is supposed to be managed by one skilled and well- qualified person, the driver, and not the entire clan of badly dressed village born conductors, bus fare collectors as well as inspectors engaged by PEB.”

He also points out that under Uganda’s inferior capitalism, bus fares are tightly regulated and there is no clear mechanism to address market failures such as unstable foreign exchange markets, high fuel prices as well as high interest rates charged on commercial bank loans.

“With tightly controlled bus fares, bus companies like PEB are virtually operating like local NGOs, making no profits. PEB’s poor performance is further attributed to its failure to diversify its sources of revenue and to adopt a better strategy to efficiently manage the various investment risks such as fragmented transit market in the city, high interest rates imposed on commercial bank loans, the lack of transit supportive infrastructure like bus terminals and bus lanes, high bus import tax as well as low urban population densities in Kampala.”
