Unruly driver

From Media Indonesia

Everyday I take a round trip on Metromini bus U-24 from Tanjung Priok to Senen via Sunter and Kemayoran. The number of buses on the route is adequate so that from 10:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. the buses often carry only a few passengers. It is not surprising that many buses stop a long time at certain bus stops waiting for more commuters to get on, which makes traveling time longer.

Worse still, the passengers in one bus are often transferred to another bus usually already crowded with commuters. It is really distressing to be forced to move to another bus only to become a standing passenger.

I hope that Metromini U-24 will improve its service and not treat passengers as the driver pleases.
