Hello my friends..Do You still remember this old public bus?? Mini bus or also called "Pink Lady" ever popular in past time..Today, let's we refresh you all about our memory and service by this mini bus..
The Kuala Lumpur Mini-Bus Service or Bas Mini was one of the oldest and popular Malaysian public bus service having served in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley region. The buses were primarily painted pink with a white stripe on the sides, and had a capacity of 20-30 passengers, due to its smaller size. The bus operated on a commission basis, with service operators being paid according to the fare they collected.
The mini-bus service was discontinued from 1 July 1998 onwards, to be replaced by the Intrakota bus service and, later, Rapid KL buses in 2005.
The mini bus started operating on 23rd September 1975 under the Ministry of Transportation. At that time, the mini bus operated on various routes according to their individual colours (blue- white, yellow-white, red-white, purple-white and dark green-white). The mini bus was responsible for servicing nearly sixty different routes. Three major companies (Syarikat Kerjasama Pengaman (M) Bhd, Bas Mini Wilayah and Konsortium Pengusaha Bas Mini Sdn Bhd) monopolized the various bus routes while smaller operators were allowed to service certain areas only.
In 1975, when the mini bus was introduced as a service, the bus-fare was just 40 sen. Later in 1991, the fare was increased to 50 sen while two years after, the fare was again adjusted to 60 sen. The mini bus did not have any fixed time-table. Instead, the service operated on a commission basis whereby the operators were paid according to the number of trips and fare collection they could raise in one day. Sometimes, in order to out do a competitor, a driver would detour from the designated route much to the annoyance of the passengers. In 1990, the then Deputy Minister of Transport, Datuk Paduka Rahmah Osman, standardized the colour of the mini bus to “Pink” and white. On the 1st July 1998, the services of the mini bus was terminated in the city of Kuala Lumpur . Once a notorious mode of transport for the many commuters in Kuala Lumpur, the “Pink Lady” will always be remembered for its death-defying activities on public roads.
Alright, that's all topic for today..We will come back with more INTERESTING and BOMBASTIC topic for you all..Just wait and see..
as we know..there was very small quantity of facilities has be given to old people and unable person when there are using public bus...seriously, its very hard to them to use this transport.. there is one story that i wanted to shared to all of u... a few years ago, me n my friends always using a public bus to go home..its happen at komtar,penang...me n my friends already in the bus..they called it yellow bus..now,there is no more yellow bus but it called milan bus..hehe we saw one very old man want to get on the bus. its so crowded with many people from every where..when the old man on the bus,just one sit left at that moment..the old man walked very slow to get that sit..but before he sat,the driver already start driving without have a look to his passenger..it make the old man fall down before he have a sit..the driver saw the old man fall but he keep driving n dont care about the old man...the old man tried to get up but because of the bus dont stop its become very difficult for him.He fall many time but the other passenger just look n doing nothing..thats make me feel sad when i saw him like that..huhu so me and one of may friend help him to sit..i hope all of u will have some sympathy to this people and give a help when people need it..can u imagine if the old man was your grandfather, how do u feel when other people treat him like that..?so think ok.. all bus must make more facilities to old people n unable person..so that no more difficulty for them to use public transport just like us...we should make a example as Rapid Penang that already make a move to give this facilities to everyone..
Hi, everyone.. Today we want give some suggestion how to reduce impatience behaviour of bus driver..We cannot deny that not all the bus driver can obey our advices because bus driver is also humans..Nobody perfect in the world but we try the best to give guide line to reduce this problem..At least better than before,right?? Take a day where you make patience your goal for the entire day. -Make a concerted effort to take your time and think about everything you do, be mindful and live in the moment. At the end of the day, observe all the ways in which you’ve made smarter decisions, got along better with others and actually understood what took place. Learn to do it on a daily basis. Developing patience is much like physical exercise because it requires persistence and effort. Slow down. -If you have the tendency to rush around and try to hurry things up, want things done immediately and can’t wait for things to take their natural course, STOP. Take several deep breaths before you act or make a move. For example, if you’re in a long lineup at the grocery store or in heavy traffic, make the decision to pause and not get worked up. Do some isometrics, listen to the radio or just enjoy the view. Getting impatient won’t make things move along any faster, so why get worked up for nothing? Practice thinking before you speak. -At times we blurt out the first thought that comes into our head without considering the consequences. If we’re patient, pause and go over what we want to say, we can avoid hurting or offending others.
For the conclusion, patience is more powerful than a warrior. It is more powerful than an army. Patience is so powerful that if can change the mind of a ruler. Patience is productive. Impatience is destructive...Think,think and think...
Crowded at bus station in Komtar,Penang during weekend
Maybe majority of you ever saw these situation in your lifetime right?? How about the impatience bus driver behaviour??Do you ever see?? We wrote this story because that situation always formed and state with us..Of course we really dislike that situation..
On last weekend, we goes shopping at Prangin Mall,Penang..Normally in weekend will crowd with visitors, tourist and maybe illegal foreigner from various countries too..In bus station, so many passangers wait for the bus to go back to their homes. What we saw is, they more like to ride by Rapid Penang because maybe that's bus more convenient, matched and quick. During the Rapid Penang driver stop the bus to drop and take passengers, the behind bus (old bus in Penang) press the bus honk in long way to Rapid Penang driver.. Actually, they can't do like that because make situation more clamorous and fussy. Furthermore, if the Rapid Penang driver decides to move the bus, maybe to bring endanger while the passengers ride the bus.
This is not the first experience if we talk about the unpatience bus driver..and we trust it's also occured at others states in Malaysia and also others countries..What happend in Penang today is, every bus companies try to compete with Rapid Penang bus because their income decrease since Rapid Penang start their operation at July' 31,2007.In fact, they should compete in the right ways and take it as a challenging to restore their service. No need to criticise in rude, bad and vulgar words.. If have childrens in the bus and they hears that's word, it's can teach the children too right?? We write this story, its not means we are pro-Rapid Penang but we just release the unsatisfied feels for that not relevant attitude... :)
Like Azrin says, this just the beginning for the blog..We would like to customize our blog so that can attract many visitor to view,learn and share our experiences about the public bus..We appreciate your comments..So, WALK WITH US UNTIL THE END..
