RTSA suspends road service license for City Express

The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA), has with immediate effect suspended the road service license for City Express service limited due to the unfitness of its buses.

RTSA Director, Zindaba Soko, says follows the many complaints the Agency has received from members of the public concerning the fitness of City Express buses known as Ticlays Buses.

Mr. Soko says RTSA carried out investigations into the allegations and established that some buses owned by City Express were not fit to be on the roads.

He says the Agency earlier cautioned City Express against further violations of the conditions after a Ticlays bus registration Number ABM 9416 headed to Solwezi from Lusaka was involved in a road traffic accident at thirteen Miles in Chibombo District.

He notes that preliminary investigations by the Agency have shown that the said vehicle did not have a valid certificate of fitness implying that the vehicle was not fit to be driven on public roads.

Mr. Soko further notes that the investigations also established that the accident was caused by a mechanical fault which could have been avoided had the vehicle been serviced by the owners.
