Kuwait City: A local bus company denied any plans to offer a new premium bus service to Kuwaitis exclusively.
The transportation firm issued a statement to refute the allegations, saying that the bus services would be accessible to all.
The statement followed a televised broadcast reporting that a new premium bus service was for Kuwaitis only.
“In response to what was said on Kuwait TV, we would like to clarify that the premium bus service is for all and not only for Kuwait citizens. We are sorry for the mistake that happened as we are a public transport company that provides a service to anyone regardless of nationality,” Gasser Fathy, marketing manager for City Group told the Kuwait Times.
A day earlier, a video clip taken from a segment broadcast on KTV1 as part of the ‘Layali Al-Kuwait’ show on Monday incorrectly reported that the bus service was for Kuwaitis.
