The Malaysian Public Transport Users Association says Mavcom has failed to come up with a Passenger Service Charge rate acceptable to all parties.
Ajit Johl from 4PAM says there are presently no guarantees of users' rights, as regulations and laws on the matter are weak.
4PAM says the government should find an alternative transport solution after announcing its intention to cancel overpriced public projects.
Gani Patail reminds travellers that the aviation commission Mavcom would deal with complaints of extra charges by airlines, price increases, flight delays and even damage to baggage.
Transport Ministry urged to withdraw RM1 regulatory service charge levied on anyone leaving from commercial airports in Malaysia.
Syed Hamid says clarification must be made by the transport ministry on fate of SPAD employees.
Public Transport Users Association says such charges are an additional burden on travellers who fly low-cost to begin with.
The trade association for the world’s airlines says the charge could adversely affect Malaysia’s travel industry and impact GDP by RM1.53 billion.
The RM1 billion for the public transport fund will not solve problems faced by taxi drivers and other underlying issues, says association.
Public Transport Users Association questions if Mavcom's existence is to be funded by collecting RM1 from every airline passenger in the country.
Consumer rights group wants Mavcom to outline compensation and other benefits to passengers in the event of delayed and canceled flights caused by airlines.
The agency should be independent and have representatives from all relevant parties, says 4PAM.
Persatuan Pengguna Pengangkutan Awam (4PAM) berkata, lapangan terbang tidak menyediakan perkhidmatan saksama dan harga barangan serta perkhidmatan di lapangan terbang terlalu tinggi.
The Public Transport Users Association says airports are not providing equal services, and notes that prices of goods and services at airports are too high.
The public transport users body says law clearly states that private vehicles cannot be used for commercial purposes.
Giving powers to passengers of a ride-sharing service to have a driver suspended based on just one complaint will put drivers at the mercy of passengers.
Ajit berkata, semua aplikasi perkongsian kenderaan juga perlu mempunyai butang SOS untuk memaklumkan keluarga penumpang, polis dan SPAD jika berasa terancam sepanjang perjalanan.
Public Transport Users Association says proposed amendments to the Land Public Transport Act 2010 will improve the safety of ride-sharing services.
Grab Malaysia head Sean Goh says the total personal accident benefits can go up to RM64,200 per person, for both the driver and passenger.
Should an accident occur, the passenger in a ride sharing vehicle could hold the government liable due to SPAD's delay in regulating Uber, Grab, says 4PAM president.
SPAD gets flak for its delay in coming up with regulations.
Regulation of all aspects of public transport has seen more problems than solutions since the creation of the Land Public Transport Commission in 2010, says association.
Public Transport Users Association (4PAM) president Ajit Johl wants SPAD chairman Syed Hamid Syed Albar and bus association president to apologise for their remarks.
Persatuan Pengguna-Pengguna Pengangkutan Awam menuntut Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat dipertanggungjawabkan atas nahas yang meragut 14 nyawa itu.
