Director-general Tang: Good afternoon! I’m glad to communicate with you on issues of transport administration.

Question: I usually take buses between Huai’an city and Hongze County, buses of this route have been improved in recent years, but some of drivers do not have a good attitude. Sometimes when I go to a temporary waiting spot to take the bus to Huai’an from Hongze, and the bus comes as I’m just several steps away from the spot, but it wouldn’t stop. And sometimes, when I go to Huangji Town from Huai’an, I ask the driver to stop at a place about 200 meters far from the get-off spot, but the driver becomes impatient and says I should buy a ticket to Zhuba Town, because I have passed the Huangji spot for getting off.
Tang: Passenger transport industry is a window of transportation, and we’ve been making all efforts to promote civilized services in years, especially services of drivers. We will attach great importance to your concern, and require passenger transport enterprises to strengthen trainings for drivers.
