Spokesman of the Governor of the Capital City N.Sugar:
-In 2023, around 300 buses are set to be imported, with the remainder expected to arrive by the first quarter of 2024. However, the procurement of new buses alone should not be considered a complete overhaul of the public transport fleet. Improving the quality and accessibility of public transport is influenced by many factors. For example, citizens submit a lot of complaints and information about improving the communication culture and attitude of drivers. At present, drivers' salary is low. Therefore, it is necessary to raise the wages of workers in this sector. Addressing issues related to garages, optimizing public transport routes, and establishing efficient short circuit routes are also essential. Moreover, comprehensive measures will be implemented to ensure the fair and proper organization of subsidies allocated from the budget to public transport companies.
