  • Drivers and conductors of licenced Public Passenger Vehicles (PPV) urged to wear badges and display licences.
  • The move is part of efforts to strengthen the mechanism for safety, security and reliability of public transportation.
  • Conductors must have a licence and a badge to operate legally.

The Transport Authority is intensifying efforts to ensure that drivers and conductors of licenced Public Passenger Vehicles (PPV) comply with the regulations regarding the wearing of badges and displaying licences.

Communication and Customer Services Manager at the Transport Authority, Petra-Kene Williams, said the move is part of efforts to strengthen the mechanism for safety, security and reliability of public transportation.

“The Authority wants to ensure that public transportation is safe for all commuters and the badge is your indication that the operator has been duly checked by the Transport Authority,” Miss Williams told JIS News in an interview.

She pointed out that the same regulation applies to conductors, who must have a licence and a badge to operate legally.

The Transport Authority resumed prosecution for the non-wearing of badges by all drivers and conductors of licenced Public Passenger Vehicles on November 1, 2013.
