MEMBERS of the public flocked to the Land Transport Authority inaugural open day yesterday to learn more about the services the authority offers.

Taxidriver Niko Dobui said the open day gave them, as public service drivers, the opportunity to get to know more about the authority and the services they offered.

Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia said they were proud of the initiative to get to meet their stakeholders and members of the public.

"We have never done this before and this is the first ever, 14 years into its existence," Mr Sokia said.

"We normally get invitations from other companies to their open days and for us, this has been part of the LTA agenda from a few years back, we are thankful that this is done to enable us to do extracurricular activities.

"Here today (yesterday) are all our stakeholders from all authorised motor vehicle dealers."

Mr Sokia said they planned to take the open day down to the West and North and while they were still trying to find a date, they welcomed the interest shown by those in the Central Division.

"The initiative is to promote road safety and enhance our networking in collaboration with members of the public, this is the forum where the public can raise issues."
