32Attachment to road service licences of conditions as to matters other than fares

(1)Subject to subsection (2) below and to any regulations, traffic commissioners granting a road service licence may attach to the licence such conditions as they think fit having regard to the interests of the public, and in particular to the matters mentioned in section 31(3)(a) to (c) of this Act, and may in particular attach thereto such conditions as they think fit (having regard as aforesaid) for securing—

(a)that suitable routes are used in providing any service which may be provided under the licence;

(b)that copies of the timetable and fare-table are carried and are available for inspection in vehicles used on any such service;

(c)that passengers are not taken up or are not set down except at specified points, or are not taken up or are not set down between specified points ;

and generally for securing the safety and convenience of the public, including persons who are disabled.

(2)No such condition as to fares as is mentioned in section 33(1) of this Act shall be attached under this section to a road service licence.

(3)The traffic commissioners by whom a road service licence was granted may at any time while it is in force vary the licence by—

(a)altering, in such manner as they think fit having regard to the interests of the public, any condition attached to the licence ; or

(b)removing any condition attached to the licence, if they think fit having regard to those interests; or

(c)attaching to the licence any such condition or additional condition as they think fit having regard to those interests.

(4)Where the holder of such a licence makes an application to the traffic commissioners requesting them to exercise then-powers under subsection (3) above, the commissioners shall exercise those powers in accordance with the application except to the extent that they are satisfied that to do so would be against the interests of the public.

(5)Compliance with any condition attached to a road service licence under this section may be temporarily dispensed with by the traffic commissioners by whom the licence was granted if they are satisfied—

(a)that compliance with the condition would be unduly onerous by reason of circumstances not foreseen when the condition was attached or, if the condition has been altered, when it was last altered; and

(b)that such a dispensation would not be against the interests of the public.
