The following is issued on behalf of the Transport Advisory Committee:           The Transport Complaints Unit (TCU) of the Transport Advisory Committee received 7 522 complaints and suggestions in the second quarter of 2020, with 61 pure suggestions.           The complaints and suggestions received during the quarter were mostly related to public transport services (79 per cent), enforcement matters (16 per cent) and traffic conditions (3 per cent).           The number of cases on public transport services increased from 3 622 in the previous quarter to 5 962 this quarter, while complaints and suggestions on traffic conditions increased from 148 to 244. Cases about road maintenance increased from 23 to 57 and the number of complaints about illegal parking and other enforcement matters increased from 941 to 1 198.           All the complaints and suggestions received by the TCU in the quarter were referred to the relevant government departments and public transport operators for follow-up action.           During the period under review, investigations into 7 108 cases were completed. Of these, 6 147 cases (86 per cent) were found to be substantiated, 30 cases (1 per cent) were unsubstantiated, and the remaining 931 cases (13 per cent) could not be pursued due to lack of evidence.           For the substantiated cases, the relevant government departments and public transport operators have either taken steps to rectify the situation or are considering possible solutions to the problems identified. Among these cases, 138 drivers were summonsed by the Police.           During the quarter, the relevant government departments and public transport operators took on board 10 suggestions made by the public to enhance public transport services and improve traffic conditions.
