Taipei, Feb. 20 (CNA) In a major change to the existing regulatory framework, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) on Monday announced plans to impose strict limits on the hours tour bus drivers are legally allowed to work.
The ministry said drivers on day trip tours that run from early morning to late in the evening must share the workload.
Vice Transportation Minister Wang Kwo-tsai (王國材) said the government will “impose rigorous regulations on day trip tours to ensure travel safety.”
The new regulations will come into effect before the Feb. 25-28 holiday, the ministry said. [FULL STORY]
