I agree, they should consider Kuching-Jakarta or Kuching-Bandung. Sarawakians love to shop and these two cities are popular for that. Bali, I'm not sure.

Regarding the hydrogen buses, so
this is a just a " research " and to project right "image" as stated on BP.
There is still no viable solutions to immediate public transport woes.


Just more beating around the bushes .

http://www.eglobaltravelmedia.com.au...kunming-china/

Quote:
AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline for the ninth consecutive year will be increasing flight frequencies from Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, Thailand to Kunming, the capital and largest city in Yunnan Province, Southwest China.

AirAsia Berhad Head of Commercial Spencer Lee said: “5 years ago, we launched our first route to Kunming with the aim to enable more people to fly. Since then we have revolutionized the air travel in Kunming and realised many individuals’ dreams to travel. Due to the rapid growth of China’s civil aviation, we are seeing more travel demands from the Chinese. Adding flight frequency is one of our commitment to grow China market and we hope more people can easily access to air travel with our low fares......

“China remains as one of our key markets. In this year itself, we have launched two new routes from Malaysia to China: Langkawi-Shenzhen, Kuching-Shenzhen. We are also looking at operating more new routes to China from our other hubs in Malaysia such as Langkawi, Kuching and Johor.”

IMHO, SBST would commence soon and these hydrogen buses will be incorporated into the existing. I don't think it would run separately. But the idea of having a carbon free emission vehicle is very much welcomed.

New bus services for Kuching folks through Stage Bus Service Transformation programme

KUALA LUMPUR: Kuching folks will soon enjoy better bus services early next year under the Stage Bus Service Transformation (SBST) programme.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said the SBST, which was introduced by Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and funded by the government, had been delayed due to technical problems.

The SBST, which would provide a more efficient and systematic bus system, was supposed to commence this year.

"Discussions have been finalised and we are pleased to announce to the people of Kuching that the SBST will be signed next week.

"I will witness the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Sarawak government and the Federal government next week," she said in reply to a supplementary question from Rubiah Wang (BN-Kota Samarahan) during the oral question session in Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday.

The SBST in Kuching is a joint effort between Putrajaya and Konsortium BBK Sdn Bhd (KBBK).

The consortium is made up of five companies namely Bau Transport Company Sdn Bhd, Biaramas Express Sdn Bhd, City Public Link Bus Service Sdn Bhd, Petra Jaya Transport (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd, and Sarawak Transport Company Bhd, all members of SBTCA.

Under the project, brand new buses which are environment-friendly, disabled-friendly and equipped with a range of features such as electronic ‘touch-n-go’ ticketing system, WiFi, GPS (global positioning system) tracking, journey tracking app, and closed circuit television (CCTV), would improve passengers’ commuting.

The SBST in Kuching would cover about 500km, consisting of 15 trunk routes and 12 feeder routes with 130 new buses.

The bus frequency would range from 15 minutes to an hour’s interval, depending on the route.


In reply to another question from Sim Tze Tsin (PKR-Bayan Baru), Nancy affirmed the government's commitment to implementing SBST in all state capital cities.

She said the SBST is still in the process of being studied and will be implemented in stages in several state capital cities namely Kangar, Ipoh and Seremban.

At the same time, six pilot tests are being conducted which involves all capital cities across the country.

"We are evaluating the routes based on existing services in a particular area.

"We do not want to go in without due consideration and end up interfering the local bus operators," she said.
