A gesture of appreciation: Suffian handing out the
`Care Package’ to commuters at the KL Sentral bus hub.
RAPIDKL commuters had a pleasant surprise on Wednesday evening during peak hours when the public transport provider’s chief executive officer Suffian Baharuddin visited the stations personally to hand out the “Care Packages”.
Clad in RapidKL uniform, Suffian stationed himself alongside his employees at the KL Sentral bus hub and LRT station before Buka Puasa.
The “Care Package” contains dates and bottled water. A total of 10,992 packages will be distributed to commuters from now until Sep 18 at the main bus and LRT stations in Kuala Lumpur.
“In a very small way, we are showing our appreciation to our loyal customers during this holy month of Ramadan,” he said.
“We hope the spirit of Ramadan can be shared by all Malaysians regardless of race and religion and bring us closer together,” he added.
Pandan Perdana residents unhappy with RapidKL bus service
She was disappointed that there was no direct bus service to town that’s less time consuming. A ticket from Pandan Perdana to Maluri station costs RM1 and from Maluri to Pudu the fare is RM2.
“Why can’t they have more frequent buses to KL and charge us only RM2 for the entire journey?” Ng added.
That's what all people want. Efficient service with cheap price. Don't they realize that these two things don't come together..... Easier said than done.
No, it can be done. With proper city-planning, ie. high density neighbourhoods, and with the bulk of people taking a convenient mass transit, this is achievable. Of course, the government must have the political will to invest it in the first place. It is like a business, eg. Ikea. When I have the masses buying my products, I can sell the items cheaper.
