Modern Coast to resume operations on Tuesday

Modern Coast buses will be back on the roads from 1pm on Tuesday.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) gave the go-ahead following the suspension last week after fatal crashes.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused to all affected passengers who were not able to travel between the 12.12.2019 and 16.12.2019,” the bus company said in a statement.

NTSA suspended the operator’s license on December 12 after two of their buses collided killing seven passengers and leaving 62 others injured.

A day earlier, another Modern Coast bus had been involved in an accident with a similar vehicle from Tahmeed company.

Incidentally, three days after the Modern Coast suspension notice, NTSA summoned officials from Tahmeed Coach Limited over its safety record.

The authority, in a statement released Sunday, said the summon was occasioned by public complaints and reports of near fatal crashes.

“We urge members of the public to report motorists endangering the lives of passengers or other road users to the nearest Police station or NTSA offices,” said NTSA Director General George Njao.

NTSA is yet to release a report on the meeting with Tahmeed officials that was to take place on Monday.
