LTA meets applicants

THE Land Transport Authority has received a huge number of applicants for PSV permits from the North.

While the figure is yet to be ascertained, the drivers were given the opportunity to meet LTA executives and permit applicants during a board meeting yesterday.

Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said this was a normal meeting attended by people who wanted to have permits in taxis, rental, hires, carriers and rural service licences to name a few.

"This is an opportunity for the applicants to approach and tell us why we should give them the permits," Mr Tuinaceva said.

"There have also been some objectors in the board who have objected to some of the applications due to several reasons after screening the applications.

"There are quite a number of people applying and we can see from here that there's a need for more PSV services."
