'Serve', warns LTA

RURAL Service License (RSL) permit holders have been told to serve their communities only and to stop operating in the urban centres.

Land Transport Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva gave the reminder during his meeting with about 20 RSL permit holders in the Central/Eastern divisions on Friday.

"You must serve your rural community, it was the reason why you were given the RSL permit in the first place and also it's the terms and condition of the licence," he said.

"However, many of you are deserting your rural community and are running into Nausori Town and right into Suva City. Your base is a rural one and your customers are rural-based.

"We have received complaints from villagers and the rural community that you are not serving them at all. These are the very people that gave their consent in the first place for you to operate an RSL."
