welcomes and appreciates the Penang state government’s extension of
support to the Citizens for Public Transport (Cepat) in their
campaign for an efficient and affordable public transport system in
Angeline Loh describes a long overdue meeting between the Citizens for Public Transport (Cepat) and the chief of the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) – a meeting which provided little hope and came 15 years too late for Penang’s bus system (or rather, bus chaos).
Penangites are fed up with empty promises to improve public transport, says Angeline Loh. Theirdisappointment stretches from Penang to Putrajaya, where the Prime Minister seems to have forgotten his home state.
Aliran is amazed that the people of Penang are being told that their State Government is not in charge of the administration of public transport in the state and therefore the State Government is redundant.
