The Transport Authority is expressing grave concern at reports regarding abuse of young women while travelling in illegally operated public transportation.

The Authority says it’s once again urging commuters to take legal public transportation. 

Commuters are encouraged to check for the red plates and TA sticker on the windscreen and take vehicles where the Drivers are wearing their white PPV badges and in the case of the Hackney Carriages the badges are displayed in the vehicles.

It says commuters should also use their cell phones to capture the particulars of the vehicle and send to someone before embarking.

In the meantime, the Authority is calling on all illegal operators of public passenger vehicles to legalise their operations as there will be a zero tolerance approach for operators who continue to operate in breach of the Law.
