1.5 Reduce the demand for transportation A Travel Demand Reduction Strategy will be developed which involves implementation of travel demand reduction strategies such as incentive programmes to promote flexi-time, telecommuting and carpooling. Further, the introduction of park and ride and walk and cycle initiatives will encourage people to rely less on vehicular use and adopt more environmentally friendly and healthier modes of transport. 1.6 Improve the efficiency of the Port Authority and expand port infrastructure High-quality port infrastructure is important to economic prosperity, particularly, for Trinidad and Tobago and the urgent need to increase exports. As such, continued effort will be placed on improving the quality of port services by reforming the Port Authority, increasing private investment in the maritime sector and integrating port operations. Additionally, expansion of port infrastructure through the construction of port facilities in Toco and other parts of Trinidad and Tobago would also be undertaken. 1.7 Transform and modernise the Licensing Office In order to deliver a safer, more flexible, innovative, customer-focussed and an on-demand transport industry, the establishment of a modern, relevant and effective organisational structure is required. The Licensing Office will, therefore, be transformed into a modern Motor Vehicle Authority. Through the investment in front-line services and innovative technologies, the Authority will be better able to serve the needs of citizens and will facilitate effective and safe usage of the nation’s roadways and highways by using new, highly secured driving licenses and number plates. These efforts would facilitate improved identification of drivers and control of the illegal use of motor vehicles resulting in reduced fraud and criminal activity. 1.8 Modernise Air Transport Infrastructure Modern airports are required to manage multiple functions that relate to operational, environmental, technological and commercial needs. The modernisation of the Piarco International Airport and, in collaboration with the Tobago House of Assembly, the construction a new, modern Airport Terminal at Crown Point will be pursued. 1.9 Enhance transport services between Trinidad and Tobago Transportation between the islands of Trinidad and Tobago will be improved by: providing a faster, alternative sea route to and from Tobago; opening up the northeast region of Trinidad for port development; and acquiring new fast ferries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
