By Benjamin Flowers: The Department of Transport is warning that several Bus Operators have been selling their Road Service Permits to persons who have not been granted approval by the Transport Board.
The Department issued a public notice yesterday, saying that it takes the allegations seriously and warns the public that the sale or transferral of any Road Service Permit is unlawful and contravenes regulation 213 of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations.
“Bus Operators and persons interested in applying for Road Service Permits are reminded that all applications for Permits must be submitted to the Department of Transport and approved by the Transport Board. Once granted, the holder of the Permit must comply with all its conditions,” the Transport Department said.
The notice also warned that failure to comply with the conditions may result in the suspension or revocation of a Road Service Permit.
