Concern Over Bus Music

The president of Fiji Buses Association Virendra Kewal said that they are against loud music in buses.

“If passengers comes across this type of issues they should get hold of the bus number and inform LTA about the drivers action”, he said.

“LTA should makes rounds on roads and get hold of PSV drivers who play loud music in buses for which they could terminate their driving license”, Mr Kewal said.

“Though some individual company wants loud music, they should be responsible. If they are taking special trips and if it is a demand from the passengers then it is okay, or else loud music is not allowed in buses,” he said.

Land Transport Authority chief executive officer,  Naisa Tuinaceva   said “it sounds really bad when we get complaints from public about  PSV drivers who are mostly from bus companies”.

He said they have received many complaints from the public regarding this issue and bus drivers have been booked.

“Bus drivers fail to meet their responsibilities for which they are assigned to do,” Mr Tuinaceva added.

“When bus drivers play loud music they should determine what age groups are in the bus,” he said.

Mr Tuinaceva said drivers play loud music for their own usage.

He said it was also because of competition to attract more passengers – mainly the young people.

Mr Tuinaceva has encouraged members of the public to raise such issues with LTA.
