IN a bid to maintain standards, the LTA has started its Quality Assurance Maintenance System (QMAS) compliance surveys on all bus operators in the country.

With 27 operators in the Central Division audited so far, the authority plans to proceed to the West before moving North

An LTA statement issued yesterday said operators in the Central Division had fully complied with phase two of the QMAS.

This phase includes the compliance of garage facilities, ramp, daily inspection, defect reporting, vehicle safety instructions, maintenance program and equipment.

"Other areas audited are the compliance procedures of tools, driver monitoring program, fleet register and accident register, emergency management plan, mobility enhancement strategy, public complaints register and workmen training log book hour," it said.

"There are four phases in the QMAS programs and all operators must comply with them before they can become QMAS certified and accredited."

QMAS has been established by the LTA to enable all bus operators to keep a consistent and a sustainable maintenance system.
