IPOH: The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) could either suspend the bus driver’s card or revoke the driving licence of the dri­ver who allegedly assaulted a passenger in an incident on Jan 25.

SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said action would only be taken after a tho­rough investigation by the police.

“The police will take action against the bus driver. SPAD will take action against the bus operator and the driver based on police investigations,” he said after visiting the Amanjaya Bus Terminal here yesterday.

Syed Hamid said SPAD would not compromise with private vehicle owners operating under the Uber service, if they violated regulations.

He said it was SPAD’s main objective to ensure vehicles operating on Malaysian roads had valid licences.

SPAD had previously stated that although the Uber app was not illegal, it was an offence as drivers did not possess public service vehicle licences. — Bernama
