Gibraltar frontier workers to get the same free bus service as residents

GIBRALTAR One of several things that came up at the first official meeting between Mayor Gemma Araujo of La Línea and Chief Minister Fabian Picardo, held on Friday, is that registered frontier workers in Gibraltar will be able to benefit from the same free bus facilities available to local residents. It would require registration as employed and contribution to the economy via PAYE payments, no matter what nationality they may be. This was announced at a joint press conference held at Convent Place after the meeting. There were several items on the agenda, including such subjects of mutual interest as sewage pollution on Western Beach, the situation of Spanish pensioners, the situation regarding the Spanish side of the airport and even the type of helmets being worn by motorcyclists. You can read all about these on The Gibraltar Chronicle or Panorama.
