'Schools should take legal action'

Bus companies should keep their agreement to provide the transport services.

Mr Lim Biow Chuan, who is in the Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport, told TNP: "Their failure to do so would create great difficulties to parents who are relying on these buses to take their children safely to school.

"If bus companies are unable to keep their part of the agreement to provide transport services without good reason, the schools ought to take legal action against the bus company."

Mr Lim said the Land Transport Authorityshould also review their licence to provide public transport services.

Earlier this month, parents of pupils from Red Swastika School and Coral Primary had to make alternative transport arrangements after the schools terminated their contract with bus company Sindoz Group. The schools cited unsatisfactory service from the bus firm.
