Bus conditions must meet requirements: Mua


IF a bus planning to operate transportation is passed at the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID), HCC will do its inspection at their Depo Works Division as well.

This is according to the Honiara City Council (HCC) Mayor Hon Andrew Mua.

“If chairs and air conditions are good without sitting in a bus and seeing the road tar then we will finally be issuing a business license,” said the HCC Mayor.

“Buses without proper conditions will not be issued licenses as we will seriously be taking this into account for restriction.”

Chairman of the Taskforce responsible for the bus routes Hon Eddie Ngava said HCC’s move to enforce new bus routes in the capital is to help other rules or Acts of the National Government being enforced.

“We also want to help the health sector, tourism industry and other sectors,” said the Chairman.

“So we are not only sorting and enforcing the destination routes but we are also assisting other laws in the country.”

HCC is appealing for the public to report any bus that operates in the city with poor conditions.
