Free Malaysia Today: "JOHOR BAHRU: The federal government has been urged to pay for buses instead of paying for road construction.
If the government is so rich as to be able to purchase a new executive jet, there was no reason why buses cannot be subsidised by the government, said Liew Chin Tong, MP for Kluang.
He said new ideas were needed for public transport, as a social good. “The more people using public transport means fewer people driving on the road,” he said. “We need a paradigm shift from the government paying for road construction to the government paying for buses.”"
