Preschoolers exempt when with adults

PRESCHOOLERS travelling alone on public buses are bound to pay half of the normal fare as required by the law.

And the LTA says such students will only be exempted from paying bus fare if they travel with an adult.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia yesterday said members of the public should be aware of this arrangement while responding to concerns raised by parents in Labasa about bus drivers demanding fares from their little ones.

"People should know that if preschoolers travel alone in the bus, they are bound to pay half of the normal fare and if they travel with an adult they will not pay," he said.

"Some preschoolers are old enough to travel alone and that's why their parents allow them to go on their own to school. But parents should know that they should pay their fare.

"This is the requirement by law and it's only important for parents to understand so their children are not chased away by the bus drivers."
