THE Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Samuel Simpson says bus drivers are not permitted to exclude the carriage of students without due course.

Mr Simpson’s comments follow pictures of students – circulating on social media – being stopped by bus drivers this week.

However, Mr Simpson clarified that students were permitted to travel on buses between 5am to 7.30pm from Monday to Saturday using the concessionary e-Ticketing card.
