With petrol prices increasing, public transport must improve...

All the while, public transport in quality has been bad. The buses arrive late, buses are sardined-packed, etc...

Some drastic action must be taken, so that the people can cut cost. Everything is increasing price, petrol, essential goods, etc...

In my opinion, I think the Malaysia government should introduce bus lanes, like in Singapore. This way, the buses can be faster than the private cars who drive very slowly. No wonder, last year, when I was in Singapore, the buses were always on time! Another way public transport can be improved, is by charging lower fares. Low fares are crucial, so that the lower income people can afford it. If they can't afford public transportation, what more private cars? This way, public transportation will be more attractive too. With more people taking public transportation, we are actually helping the environment too. The government should have more buses running. Most of the time, the buses are delayed. And at peak hours, the buses are sardined-packed! Keeping enough buses on the road is not just about buying new buses, but keeping the existing ones in working condition. The people chosen to drive the buses must be careful too. Every month, I read of a few bus crashes. Pick the correct people to do the work!

I think, with the above steps taken, the quality and efficiency of public transport will improve.

I think people's opinions toward the public transportation should be changed also.This is because if the government really improve the quality and quantity of public transportation,but people still think the traveling with bus is such a shame,then our government affort will be to no avail.
