“I’d like to call upon business houses and also the authorities looking after the transport sector to consider building more bus and taxi stand shelters at the areas covered by the public transportation. I believe the bus association is also working very hard to improve services to the general public. I also noticed that there is a greater need for us to provide shelter at bus and taxi stands so that people can feel safer when they travel.”
