MUAR, March 17 (Bernama) -- The Commercial Vehicle
Licencing Board (CVLB) will only consider applications from express
bus operators to increase, extend or shorten bus routes after they
settle their drivers' summonses, CVLB chairman Datuk Markiman Kobiran
He said the new measure was adopted by the CVLB
following an agreement with the Road Transport Department (JPJ)
and the police to streamline their action.
"Transport companies will be asked to settle
their drivers' summonses first before we consider their applications.
"We will no longer set aside summonses from
other enforcement agencies because they have gotten away with them," he
told reporters after launching the double-decker bus service of
Mayang Sari Express at the Bentayan Express Bus terminal at Jalan
He said that with the streamlining, the CVLB would
no longer join integrated operations with other enforcement agencies.
On the introduction of e-ticketing at express
bus counters, he said the service would be extended to the Internet
for the benefit of foreign tourists.
