JOHOR BARU: Ulat tiket or ticket touts or are now working together with bus ticket counter clerks to “expand” their business.
Johor Road Transport Depart-ment director Rosli Ramli said enforcement personnel uncovered the new modus operandi at the Larkin bus terminal.
“We suspect that some counter clerks are receiving money for cooperating with the ulat tiket.
“However, there have been no arrests so far as it is hard for us to find proof against these clerks,” he said.
Rosli said the clerks often used excuses such as it was hard for them to recognise the touts who used different people to buy the tickets.
He added that some department personnel would go undercover to catch the ticket touts and their accomplices.
“We urge the public to buy tickets from the counters. We have also listed out ticket prices for express buses to various destinations so that people will not be cheated,” he told a press conference here yesterday.
Rosli urged anyone with complaints on ticket touts and inflated ticket prices to call the JPJ hotline at 07-354 3544, e-mail seranta.Johor@jpj.gov.my or fill in complaint forms available at the Larkin Bus Terminal.
