Passengers and their pets
Yet another feature of incompetence by the Arriva drivers was displayed on November 7 when a driver of 106 bus in Lija did not allow me onboard because of my dog!
I have seen this happening with other passengers too as many drivers are unaware of the rules allowing pets on board. People are consistently being refused to board a bus because of a dog.
This is simply ignorance on the drivers’ part and is against Arriva rules because their regulations state that pets are allowed on board.
It is no proper excuse to portray this kind of ignorance or show pure selfishness if the driver does not happen to like dogs. Arriva should make all drivers aware that pets are allowed; we are living in the 21st century, after all. If my pets have flown with me all around the world and stayed in the best hotels, then it is ridiculous not to allow them on a bus in Malta.
