I frequently drive past Medan Kidd Bus Station but never bothered to have a second look at it. Recently I went there to meet a visitor. The Bus Station has been painted in a bright attractive yellow and looks most appealing now. The ticketing counters of the various bus companies have also been painted.
The compound has also been cleaned up and looks comparatively neat and tidy. However, in one corner of the compound, rubbish has been thrown on the ground. This can be avoided by placing a dustbin where the rubbish can be collected and disposed of properly.
The public must also play their role; the newly painted columns have already been defaced. Malaysians must be trained to be civic minded and maintain public property.
The authorities must maintain the cleanliness and provide more dustbins in the waiting areas. Preventing private cars from entering the compound would improve the image of the bus station.
