Bus conductors

Mere Naleba
Saturday, February 08, 2014

LAND Transport Authority chief exceutive Naisa Tuinaceva is urging bus drivers to stop entertaining people who sit on engine covers and collect fares.

Mr Tuinaceva yesterday said bus companies found continuing this practice would be taken to task.

He said these "self-appointed fare collectors" would get the bus drivers and companies into trouble.

"We are appealing to the public to report these issues to the LTA, once they see that bus drivers are not collecting fares but somebody else," he said.

"The members of the public too can help us."

Mr Tuinaceva said it was the driver's responsibility to collect fares, except for companies that operated long runs.

"Bus conductors, yes, that's in the law, if you are talking about those bus companies that operate on long runs like Sunbeam the Pacific transport.

"Yes, those bus conductors are legal."
