Bus service

THE Land Transport Authority has high expectations of bus operators in the country, says LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

Mr Sokia said because 80 per cent of travelling public used bus as their main means of public transportation, they were working closely with all bus operators to ensure compliance and standard procedures were met and upheld at all times.

"We expect top quality and high standard buses, buses that meets LTA standards and compliance procedures, buses that keeps maintenance systems and procedures intact, effective and regular bus service, buses that meet the quality maintenance assurance systems and buses that provide consistent service all throughout," Mr Sokia said.

He said they had noticed a lot of re-fleeting from many bus operators in Fiji — a move they welcomed and were happy with.

"We not only want people to enjoy a consistent bus service, LTA wants to see that the public enjoys the quality of bus that is servicing the people."
