There is a need for more buses and bus trips to avoid overloading of passengers in buses, says Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva.

“The overloading in buses has been ongoing for some time. This simply reflects the increase in the demand and movement of the general public,” Mr Tuinaceva said.

“At some places we have reacted slowly or not really been attuned to the demand of the public, that’s why we miss out a little bit to enable us at some stage to really read the message and start working on increasing the number of buses. We need more buses and bus trips to address this overloading issue.”

He said the authority was working with bus operators on the matter.

“It is not safe to have our buses overloaded. The comfort and safety of the passengers is compromised,” he said.
