     The Transport Complaints Unit (TCU) of the Transport Advisory Committee received 11 338 complaints and suggestions in the second quarter of 2022, with 469 being pure suggestions.
     The complaints and suggestions received during the quarter were mostly related to public transport services (87 per cent), enforcement matters (9 per cent) and traffic conditions (2 per cent).
     The number of cases on public transport services increased from 4 588 in the previous quarter to 9 925 this quarter, while that on illegal parking and other enforcement matters increased from 861 to 1 054. The number of complaints and suggestions on traffic conditions increased from 101 to 224, while that on road maintenance decreased from 88 to 83.
     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 6 427 cases were completed. Of these, 5 652 cases (88 per cent) were found to be substantiated, 14 cases (less than 1 per cent) were unsubstantiated, and the remaining 761 cases (11 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, 77 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. A summary of the cases is in the Appendix.
