Kuching, Malaysia should ‘Focus on improving public transport’

The Star Online: "KUCHING: If Kuching is to be made more competitive as envisioned in the 11th Malaysia Plan, the authorities should emphasise public transport more, said residents.

“We can’t be a competitive city with poor public transport. That would be ironic and counterproductive,” said Sonia Luhong.

The graphic designer added that reliable public transport would reduce pollution and dependence on personal vehicles and increase mobility for city folk and tourists.

“I’m looking forward to Malaysia setting a positive example and maybe even a new benchmark for public transportation in the region,” said Luhong, 25, in response to Kuching's inclusion in the 11MP’s strategy of investing in competitive cities."
