KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 12): The Land Public Transport Commission revoked a taxi owner's operator’s licence and vehicle permit for charging a tourist RM800 for a trip from the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) to Masjid Negara. In addition, the individual has been blacklisted from securing an operator’s licence in the future," Spad said. Spad said: "Both drivers registered under the operator’s licence in question had not renewed their driver’s cards upon expiry, which indicates that they were not interested to continue as taxi service providers." According to Spad, the operator’s licence holder did not produce the vehicle for inspection, as he claimed another individual was driving the taxi. “The vehicle in question however, has been found with a false registration number and was confiscated by Spad.
