MP takes bus, shares experience

TRANSIT notes that Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua took the bus from Batu Pahat, Johor to the Bukit Jalil temporary bus terminal.

He posted his experience & feedback, including photos, on his twitter feed @TonyPua

We thought it would be fun to post his tweets & photos here so people could see what has happened recently at the temporary terminal – given the lack of media attention and effort by the authorities to maintain their vigilance.

TRANSIT Says:

There you have it. At least one MP taking the bus and giving feedback. Amazing, isn’t it?

TRANSIT will forward that feedback to the Federal Territories Ministry, SPAD and UDA Holdings and hopefully, we can see some action taken over the next few weeks.
