Mohd Sofi said the complaints included counter staff treating customers badly and rude bus drivers.
“Melaka is a top tourist destination and if the allegations are true, this will mar the state’s image,” he said.
“Recommendations will also be made to bus operators to train and monitor the performance of their customer service staff,” he said.
