Lucrative income for bus ticket touts


A BUS ticket tout earns up to RM6,000 a month, reported Utusan Malaysia.

In an undercover investigation, it was learnt that an experienced tout can earn RM200 a day.

A tout working tirelessly, seven days a week non-stop can rake in a handsome RM5,000 to RM6,000 - despite the job being illegal.

The touts were also not afraid of getting caught by the authorities because their income was more than enough to pay the fines.

One full-time tout, who only wants to be known as Kamal, admitted to earning a fixed income of RM800 a month.

On average, he said he could earn a commission of between RM100 and RM150 a day from ticket sales. In a month, he earns at least RM2,000, including his fixed income.

He said touts were able to rake in such high incomes through commissions of between RM2 and RM5 for every ticket they sold.

Enough tickets for all, but beware of touts
By : R. Sittamparam


KUALA LUMPUR: There are more than enough tickets for everyone for the Hari Raya balik kampung exodus.

Pan Malaysia Bus Operators Association president Datuk Mohamed Ashfar Ali said the public need not worry about the non-availability of tickets as more companies would be putting them on sale soon.

"Based on the demand and approval of temporary licencses and subsidised diesel by the government, more companies will offer additional bus services for the season.

"The public, however, cannot be fussy over dates for the trips as tickets for Sept 26 to 28 are selling fast."

Ashfar gave an assurance that everyone who wished to go back home for the holidays by bus would get there in time for Hari Raya.

He, however, cautioned the public not to buy tickets from touts either outside or inside bus stations.

He believed touts would be active at bus terminals at Larkin Johor Baru, Puduraya in Kuala Lumpur, Butterworth and Alor Setar.

He also urged the public to check prices and times printed on tickets.

Ashfar said the police and Road Transport Department enforcement officers would be present at all 26 bus terminals nationwide to safeguard the interests of passengers.

KTM Bhd, meanwhile, announced it had sold 28,650 of 52,430 train tickets to and from destinations in the North, East Coast and South for the period between Sept 24 and 30.

It said most of the tickets for trips out of here had been sold out while there was ample tickets for trips back here.

It said 19,850 of the 50,736 train tickets to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore for the period between Oct 1 and 7 had been sold.

The company said additional trips would be provided during the festive period based on their availability.

Tiket bas raya kehabisan

Oleh SHAHRULANOOR ISHAK
shahrulanoor.ishak@kosmo.com.my


ORANG RAMAI berlegar-legar di kaunter Terminal Makmur, Kuantan semalam dengan harapan dapat membeli tiket untuk pulang berhari raya di kampung.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


KUANTAN – Tiket bas raya hampir habis. Tiket bagi perjalanan bas ekspres dari Kuantan ke Terengganu, Kelantan, Perak, Pulau Pinang dan Kedah terutama pada minggu terakhir Ramadan pula habis dijual.

Wakil jualan tiket SPI Ekspres Sdn. Bhd. di Kuantan, Mohd. Asuad Mohd. Tahir, 23, berkata, tiket bagi perjalanan bas pada 25 dan 26 September sudah habis.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



“Selain 25 dan 26 September, turut habis ialah tiket pada 29 dan 30 September disebabkan permintaan tinggi. Tiket pada 27 dan 28 September pula hampir habis,” katanya semasa ditemui di Terminal Makmur di sini semalam.

Dalam pada itu, Mohd. Asuad menambah, pihaknya bagaimanapun cuba mendapatkan bas persiaran seba- gai pengangkutan tambahan bagi memenuhi permintaan.

“Bas tambahan itu nanti dijangka dapat memenuhi permintaan pada sepanjang minggu terakhir puasa. Orang ramai tak perlu bimbang,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Penyelia Jualan Transnasional Sdn. Bhd., Zulkifli Jusoh, 33, pula berkata, pengguna yang ingin pulang ke Kuala Lumpur tidak perlu bimbang.

Takut jual tiket
Oleh Mohamad Hussin
mohamad@hmetro.com.my



KUALA LUMPUR: “Kita bimbang bas tambahan yang dijanjikan tak ada... sebab itu kami tidak mahu jual tiket bas tambahan kerana majoriti pengusaha bas belum memohon permit Lesen Perubahan Sementara (LPS) sempena Aidilfitri.

“Persatuan bimbang untuk memberi jaminan bahawa bas tambahan mencukupi, nanti apabila tiba masanya penumpang akan marah kerana sudah beli tiket, walhal bas yang dijanjikan tak wujud,” kata Presiden Persatuan Pengusaha Bas Ekspres Melayu Semenanjung Malaysia (Pembawa), Tajuddin Yunus.

Beliau berkata, pengusaha bas tambahan perlu segera memohon LPS dan kad fleet bagi mengelakkan masalah bas tambahan tidak mencukupi sebelum musim perayaan Aidilfitri tahun ini.

“Saya difahamkan, Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) hanya menerima 300 permohonan setakat ini berbanding 2,000 yang disediakan untuk bas tambahan kali ini.

“Kami tahu ada ‘ulat tiket’ jual tiket untuk musim perayaan tetapi ia mungkin palsu kerana setahu kami setakat ini belum ada syarikat bas ekspres yang menjual tiket perjalanan biasa atau bas tambahan.

“Ia berikutan sebahagian besar pengusaha bas ekspres bimbang mengalami kerugian jika menyediakan khidmat tambahan kerana terpaksa menanggung kos tinggi akibat kenaikan harga diesel, alat ganti, tayar serta kos pengurusan,” katanya.

Tajuddin juga menafikan dakwaan pihaknya ‘menyimpan’ tiket bas tambahan pada musim perayaan ini atas alasan bimbang kerugian jika tiket itu dijual sebelum penguatkuasaan surcaj 30 peratus mulai 15 September ini.

“Macam mana kita nak simpan tiket bas tambahan sedangkan pengusaha bas belum lagi membuat permohonan kepada LPKP.

“Ada segelintir pengusaha bas sekolah, persiaran dan kilang tidak berminat menyediakan perkhidmatan bas tambahan terutama untuk perjalanan ke pantai timur memandangkan kos operasi meningkat.

“Setakat ini, kita (Pembawa) mempunyai 25 syarikat bas membabitkan 500 bas ekspres yang akan beroperasi menjelang musim perayaan ini,” katanya.

Semalam, Persatuan Pengusaha Bas Seluruh Malaysia (PMBOA) menafikan dakwaan kononnya segelintir pengusaha syarikat bas sengaja ‘menyimpan’ tiket bas tambahan pada musim perayaan ini atas alasan bimbang kerugian jika tiket itu dijual sebelum penguatkuasaan surcaj 30 peratus mulai 15 September ini.

5,600 Buses To Cater For Aidilfitri Balik Kampung Rush - Markiman
September 14, 2008 22:49 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 (Bernama) -- A total of 4,900 express buses and 733 additional buses will operate from Monday until Oct 15 to cater for the Aidilfitri 'balik kampung' rush, said the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) chairman Datuk Markiman Kobiran.

"To date we have approved 733 temporary licence for additional buses to ply during the hari raya holiday and we expect more companies would apply for the licence next week," he told Bernama.

He said all the buses would operate from the Puduraya, Duta, Putra and Pekeliling terminals, and the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex temporary terminal.

The Puduraya and Duta terminals will be for north-bound buses, Putra and Pekeliling (east-bound), and the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex (south-bound).

He said the buses would be adequate for the festive season and advised consumers to buy tickets from genuine counters or the internet to prevent them from being cheated by touts.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters after launching the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex temporary terminal here, he said the RM200,000 terminal was built by UDA MALL Sdn Bhd and the Perbadanan Stadium Merdeka.

Markiman said it could handle 500 buses owned by 62 companies, daily.

He said the CVLB would seek RapidKL's cooperation to provide services from the Puduraya terminal to the Duta terminal and the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex temporary terminal with a fare of RM3 per passenger.

"We will also ask RapidKL to extend its services after midnight starting two or three days before hari raya," he said.

Berasak beli tiket





KUALA LUMPUR: Orang ramai menggunakan cuti hujung minggu semalam untuk membeli tiket bas ekspres untuk pulang berhari raya di kampung halaman masing-masing sebelum ia habis dijual.

Tinjauan Harian Metro di Hentian Puduraya mendapati kaunter tiket sesak sehingga menyebabkan pembeli terpaksa beratur panjang dan menunggu lama.

Seorang pembeli, Naim Suhut, 19, berkata dia datang awal pagi ketika kaunter tiket baru dibuka bagi mengelak daripada beratur panjang, tetapi sangkaannya meleset berikutan kaunter tiket penuh dengan pembeli.

“Saya fikir datang pagi tidak perlu beratur dan berebut, tetapi rupanya ada pembeli yang lebih awal daripada saya sehingga memaksa saya menunggu dua jam,” katanya yang ingin membeli tiket pulang ke Perak.

Berbeza dengan Siti Hanisah Nordin, 22, yang terpaksa membeli tiket bas tambahan kerana kehabisan tiket raya untuk destinasi ke Pantai Timur.

“Saya terpaksa menaiki bas persiaran dengan harga yang lebih mahal berbanding bas lain kerana tiket ke Kota Bharu habis dijual walaupun saya datang membelinya seawal dua hari berpuasa,” katanya yang akan pulang pada 26 September ini.

Ditanya mengenai masalah ulat tiket yang mengambil kesempatan, Siti Hanisah berkata, dia tidak mempercayai janji manis ulat terbabit kerana sudah kerap kali akhbar memaparkan masalah berhubung isu berkenaan.

“Saya memang tidak pernah beli tiket dengan mereka (ulat) walaupun dalam keadaan terdesak seperti musim perayaan dan cuti sekolah kerana bimbang ditipu yang akhirnya merugikan wang dan masa saya,” katanya yang pernah menyambut raya di ibu kota kerana kehabisan tiket.

Petugas kaunter tiket Plusliner, Bahar Yudin, 33, berkata penjualan tiket dalam masa sehari semakin meningkat bermula minggu ini kerana orang ramai mula mendapat cuti raya.

LPKP Approve 700 Extra Buses For "Hari Raya"
September 15, 2008 21:35 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 15 (Bernama) -- Those planning to go back to their hometowns and celebrate "Hari Raya" with their loved ones need not worry about missing that chance as the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (LPKP) has approved 700 extra buses.

Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president Datuk Mohamed Ashfar Ali said the 700 extra buses should be enough to cater for the exodus in view of the forthcoming festival.

"If the need arises to supplement that number we can make arrangements for more," he told Bernama when contacted here Monday.

With regard to the 30 percent surcharge on fares charged by stage and express buses, as allowed by the government, he said so far, the association has not received any negative feedback from passengers.

Meanwhile, a survey by Bernama at the Puduraya Bus Terminal saw huge crowds at ticket counters although some express bus companies were charging higher fares, especially to northern destinations.

Tunggu di terminal ditetapkan


KUALA LUMPUR: Orang ramai yang mahu pulang ke kampung menaiki bas ekspres atau bas tambahan sempena Aidilfitri ini perlu menunggu di terminal bas sementara yang ditetapkan berkuat kuasa semalam sehingga 15 Oktober ini.

Pengerusi Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP), Datuk Markiman Kobiran berkata, mereka yang mahu ke pantai timur perlu menunggu di Hentian Putra dan Pekeliling, manakala Hentian Puduraya dan Duta ditetapkan bagi perjalanan ke utara.

Katanya, bagi perjalanan ke selatan pula, pengguna perlu menaiki bas di Kompleks Sukan Negara Bukit Jalil.

Beliau berkata, lokasi lain bagi terminal bas sementara yang dibenarkan beroperasi berdasarkan keperluan adalah di Gombak, Kajang, Putrajaya dan Damansara Utama (One Utama) manakala terminal sementara di negeri ditetapkan Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ).

“RapidKL turut menyediakan bas pengantara dari Hentian Puduraya ke Hentian Duta dan Kompleks Sukan Negara Bukit Jalil dengan kadar tambang RM3 sehala bermula jam 6 pagi hingga jam 12 malam.

“Orang ramai dinasihatkan membeli tiket di kaunter tiket yang sah saja supaya tidak dimanipulasi pihak yang tidak bertanggung jawab,” katanya.

Sebarang aduan kepada LPKP boleh dibuat sama ada melalui talian 1-800-88-9600 atau menerusi khidmat pesanan ringkas ke 39900 atau e-mel ke aduanlpkp@mecd.gov.my.

Terminal tak sesuai
Oleh Helmy Abd Rahman
helmy@hmetro.com.my



KUALA LUMPUR: Menyusahkan! Itu reaksi sebahagian besar penumpang yang menaiki bas ekspres untuk pergi balik ke selatan tanah air di terminal bas sementara dari Kompleks Sukan Bukit Jalil, dekat sini, yang mula beroperasi sejak kelmarin.

Rata-rata yang ditemui merungut dan melahirkan rasa tidak puas hati berikutan lokasi terminal berkenaan jauh dari ibu kota, selain terpaksa membayar tambang tambahan untuk ke tempat terbabit.

Khairul Affendy Mohammad, 26, berkata penumpang tidak seharusnya dibebani dengan bayaran tambahan untuk ke tempat itu, lebih-lebih lagi dengan kadar surcaj 30 peratus yang dikenakan untuk perkhidmatan bas sempena Aidilfitri selama sebulan bermula Isnin lalu.

“Apa yang dikesalkan, saya terpaksa bayar tambang tambahan untuk ke sini dari Hentian Puduraya. Sepatutnya, pengangkutan disediakan secara percuma dan keadaan ini memang menyusahkan.

“Jika saya tahu dari awal, memang tak jadi nak berangkat ke Pasir Gudang hari ini (semalam),” katanya.

Bagi Norhidayah Md Yusof, 24, pula kerajaan katanya sepatutnya memilih lokasi di ibu kota atau kawasan berhampiran supaya lebih mudah untuk menguruskan hal berkaitan pengangkutan.

Jururawat itu yang baru tiba dari Johor Bahru ketika ditemui, berkata keadaan terminal sementara itu yang ala kadar juga membuatkannya tidak begitu selesa.

“Walaupun niat sebenar kerajaan memilih lokasi ini untuk mengelak kesesakan, banyak masalah lain pula timbul dan saya fikir keadaan akan jadi lebih teruk menjelang penghujung puasa ini,” katanya.

Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) sebelum ini menggunakan hentian sementara itu untuk mengurangkan kesesakan di Hentian Puduraya yang sebelum ini menyediakan perkhidmatan bas ekspres dari semua laluan.

Tinjauan Harian Metro di lokasi terbabit semalam mendapati keadaan sedikit lengang dipercayai berikutan belum ramai warga kota yang mengambil cuti Aidilfitri untuk pulang ke kampung halaman.

Sementara itu, penjual tiket, Fairuz Mohd, 28, mengakui ramai yang mengadu kepadanya mengenai pemilihan lokasi berkenaan yang dikatakan tidak sesuai.

“Memang sejak semalam (kelmarin) lagi ramai yang mengadu mengenai masalah pemilihan lokasi di sini dan lebih mengejutkan ramai yang tidak mengetahui perkara ini walaupun sudah dihebahkan melalui media,” katanya.

Kaunter tiket lengang
Oleh Maiamalina Mohamed Amin
maiamalina@hmetro.com.my



KUALA LUMPUR: Kurang dua minggu menjelang 1 Syawal, kaunter tiket bas ekspres di beberapa hentian dan terminal bas utama di ibu kota seakan-akan tidak berfungsi apabila tiada lagi barisan panjang orang ramai berebut mendapatkan tiket.

Suasana lengang yang wujud sejak beberapa hari lalu sekali gus membuatkan beberapa syarikat pengusaha bas bertindak menutup kaunter mereka untuk tempoh tertentu sebelum membukanya kembali pada waktu puncak seperti tamat waktu pejabat.

Malah, tinjauan Harian Metro di Hentian Duta dan Terminal Bas Tun Razak atau lebih dikenali Hentian Pekeliling, di sini pada waktu rehat makan tengah hari semalam mendapati ruang menunggu serta deretan kaunter tiket kosong tiada berpengunjung.

Laluan keluar masuk bas juga tidak sesak difahamkan kerana jadual perjalanan setiap bas terhad memandangkan permintaan pulang ke kampung lebih banyak tertumpu pada lima hari terakhir sebelum raya bermula 26 September ini.


Bercerita lanjut mengenai jualan tiket musim perayaan, penjaga kaunter Etika Ekspres, Mohd Faizul Senin, 23, berkata pihaknya masih mempunyai sejumlah tiket untuk dijual bagi perjalanan ke utara, namun berdepan masalah kekurangan pembeli.




“Tiket banyak lagi malah perjalanan bagi tarikh 26 September ke bawah juga masih ada, cuma orangnya saja yang tiada datang beli jika dibandingkan awal bulan lalu.

“Masa itu memang ramai, penuh sesaklah hentian ini sebab orang nak dapatkan tiket balik kampung agaknya mereka takut tiket habis, tapi tiket tidak habis pun, ada lagi termasuk perjalanan biasa dan bas tambahan,” katanya.

Mohd Faizul berkata, satu daripada sebab tiket bas kelolaan syarikatnya masih berbaki menjelang Aidilfitri berikutan jualan baru saja dibuka Isnin lalu, selain tidak mengamalkan sistem tempahan.

“Kita jual tiket ikut siapa cepat dia dapat, jadi sementara ada ini orang ramai boleh datang beli tiket ke Alor Star, Kangar dan Kuala Perlis,” katanya.

Sementara itu, bagi penjaga kaunter Mara Liner di Hentian Pekeliling, Anita Abu, 41, tiket bas bertarikh 26 September hingga 5 Oktober depan habis dijual, termasuk membabitkan perjalanan beberapa bas tambahan.

Katanya, sejak mula dijual 10 September lalu, kaunter syarikatnya penuh sesak selama beberapa hari, namun mulai surut menjelang Isnin lalu disebabkan faktor tiket banyak habis bagi tarikh yang dimahukan orang ramai termasuk selepas hari raya.

Express bus operator expects to double profit


KUALA TERENGGANU: Sani United Sdn Bhd, the operator of bumiputra-owned Sani Ekspress bus services, expects to double its profit to RM2mil this year from RM1mil achieved in the financial year ended Dec 31, 2007.

Chief executive officer Sani Salleh said the projected increase in profit was following the addition of Swedish-made double-decker buses to its services in the east coast.

“Previously, with the ordinary bus with a capacity for 30 passengers, the company was able to achieve an income of almost RM1mil every month.

“But with the double-decker bus, which was introduced a month ago, we have made a monthly income of RM1.5mil,” he told Bernama yesterday.

The company expects to record a revenue of RM12mil for the year.

Currently, Sani Ekspress employs 10 double-decker buses for its services and expects to increase the number by another five before the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.

As a preparation to increase its network of services to the northern areas next year, Sani said the company had ordered another 10 double-decker buses costing RM10mil.

The buses are expected to be delivered early next year.

Sani said the company’s new services to the north will cover the Kuala Lumpur to Alor Setar, Sungai Petani, Kuala Perlis and Kangar routes. - Bernama

Tiket bas masih banyak lagi: LPKP





KUALA LUMPUR: “Orang ramai jangan kelam-kabut...masih banyak tiket bas ke semua destinasi,” kata Pengerusi Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP), Datuk Markiman Kobiran ketika diminta mengulas mengenai tiket bas yang sudah habis dijual di kebanyakan kaunter syarikat bas ekspres.

Menurutnya, beliau memberi jaminan tiket bas untuk pulang ke kampung masih dijual dan orang ramai tidak perlu bimbang walaupun sambutan Aidilfitri tinggal beberapa hari saja.

“Setakat ini, kami sudah meluluskan 1,822 Lesen Perubahan Sementara (LPS) bagi menampung permintaan orang ramai yang mahu pulang ke kampung,” katanya, semalam.

Beliau berkata, pengusaha bas sekolah, bas kilang dan persiaran diminta segera memohon LPS untuk mengendalikan bas tambahan kerana ia masih dibuka sehingga 30 September ini.

“Syarikat bas boleh memohon mendapatkan LPS melalui syarikat sendiri atau menerusi syarikat bas ekspres yang bekerjasama dengan mereka,” katanya.

Bus, train tickets still available
By : R. Sittamparam




KUALA LUMPUR: As the balik kampung exodus begins in earnest today, bus operators have this advice for those yet to get tickets — don’t panic.

And KTM Berhad said many return-trip train tickets were available for its outstation destinations.

Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president Datuk Ashfar Ali said there should be no question of bus tickets not being available, now that bus companies have been allowed to run extra buses based on demand.

“When there is demand for a particular route and time, operators can immediately mobilise their additional buses. The government has approved some 1,400 extra buses, with more to be added, based on increased demand.”

Ashfar expected the situation to be tense at the 26 bus terminals in the country from today till Sunday, after which things are expected to cool down.

He was glad that this year, the management of privatised bus terminals had come forward to solve the problem of ticket touts.

As a result, the touts problem at the Puduraya bus terminal, for example, was now manageable.

Ashfar said the problem of touts could be taken care of once and for all if the government amends Rule 36 of the Motor Vehicles (Commercial Transport) Rules 1959.

He said touts were taking away about 30 per cent of the business from bus operators by luring commuters to illegally-run buses.

Ashfar also called on bus passengers to become the eyes and ears of the authorities by reporting bus drivers who speed, as well as other errant vehicles on the highways.

“Travellers can call the toll free line at 1-800-88-9600 for the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board or SMS to 39900 or call Rakan Cop.”

The board’s chairman, Datuk Markiman Kobiran, said there had been no complaints from the public over the bus service for the festive season.

KTM Berhad said many return-trip tickets to the north, east coast and south were available. It said most outward-bound tickets had been sold.

It had provided 54,442 tickets for the period between yesterday and Tuesday, with 41,810 sold.

Buy tickets at counter, public told
Saturday September 27, 2008
By PRIYA MENON
TheStar



PASSENGERS are warned again to stay away from touts at Puduraya.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department T. Murugiah, who visited the bus station, said that people should buy tickets only from the counter.

“Purchase tickets from the counters only because some of you may be cheated of your ticket and your money,” Murugiah said during the visit last Friday.

He said cooperation from the public was important to ensure a safe and hassle-free trip back home.

He also said that he was satisfied with the facilities provided at the bus station for passengers.

“There are enough officers and personnel from the Road Transport Department (JPJ), police and in-house guards who are at hand to solve any problems passengers may face,” he said.

At present there are five JPJ officers, two police officers, seven in-house officers and an unidentified number of plain clothes policemen.

Uda Mall’s general manager, Shytul Shahryn Mohamad Shaari said that they hoped to have the officers posted permanently at the station.

Murugiah said that the suggestions brought up by Uda Mall would be reviewed and sent to the appropriate ministry for approval.

Uda Mall has also upgraded and repaired the ventilator system at the terminal to ensure people were comfortable while waiting for their buses.

“Uda Mall Sdn Bhd has spent close to RM200,000 to fix the ventilator and air-conditioning system,” said Shytul.

Murugiah said he was only expecting minor problems during the balik kampung period as the bus terminals have been separated into four different locations.

The north-bound buses will be operating from the Puduraya and Duta terminals, east-bound buses from Putra and Pekeliling terminals and south-bound buses from the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex temporary terminal.

Murugiah said his department was concerned about the passengers’ welfare.

“When we receive complaints, it is our duty to visit the site and solve them the best way possible,’’ he said.

Drive safely back to hometowns
Monday September 29, 2008
TheStar



Here you go: Khalid (left) presenting a goodie bag to a motorist.

MOTORISTS have been advised to drive carefully when they balik kampung and return to the Klang Valley during this Hari Raya season.

The advice came from Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar, who presented some 1,000 goodie bags to motorists during a road safety campaign at the Sungai Buloh rest area on Saturday.

Khalid said that statistics from the Ops Sikap 17 revealed that there were less fatalities in Selangor compared to previous years and hoped this would be maintained.

“There were 41 deaths from accidents this year compared to 64 deaths in the same period last year.

“In Selangor, there were 975 accident cases, a decline of 41 cases compared to last year.

“So far, the police have issued 5,390 summonses to motorists, of which 550 were for speeding followed by 82 for beating the red lights, 115 for accidents while the rest were for other offences,” he said.

Khalid added that speeding was the main cause of accidents and fatalities. He hoped motorists would slow down and follow the speed limits.

After the event, all the police personnel, including the volunteers, broke fast together at Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant at the rest stop.

Bus surcharge to remain




PUTRAJAYA: The 30 per cent surcharge for rides on express buses and shuttle buses introduced for the Hari Raya period will remain until a new bus fare schedule is drawn up. Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development Minister Datuk Noh Omar declined to say when the new fare would be released, but said he had decided to keep the surcharge because of the satisfactory services provided by the bus companies. He said complaints about ticket touts and shortage of buses during the festive period were markedly fewer this year.
