The Tobago House of Assembly is urged to get all systems in place ahead of future cruise ship arrivals to the sister isle.
THA Minority Leader, Kelvon Morris, issued the plea at a news briefing on Thursday.
It comes following last Saturday’s cancellation of pre-booked tours for 300 tourists when the Celebrity Silhouette docked at the Port of Scarborough due to the non-arrival of maxi-taxis.
The vessels arrival marked the start of a cruise ship season.
The THA Tourism Division says it is expecting 70 scheduled calls, bringing a total of 116,906 passengers to Tobago.
Mr Morris said with more cruise lines scheduled to arrive in Tobago he is hoping lessons have been learnt from the recent development and action taken quickly to correct the situation.
Mr Morris suggested one avenue which can be explored to build the fleet of vehicles which can be used to accommodate visitors when they arrive to the island.
