Bus woes

I am not impressed at the current transport situation in Malacca now. Even though the government decided to take over the establishment with new air conditioned buses, but the cons tops the pros.
Pros:
  1. It's super clean
  2. It's air conditioned

Cons:
  1. The buses are not punctual. At some cases, the waiting can vary from 10 minutes, or 30 minutes, or 1 and half hours. The longest I've waited was almost 2 hours and that was when two buses passes me at the bus stop even though I was putting myself out there for them to see for them to come to a halt for me to board on them.
  2. The bus drivers here are highly underpaid
  3. With reason number two, I think that is why Malaccan bus drivers are the worst kind of drivers so far I have witnessed.

Riding the Malacca public is not for the faint hearted. I know I have wasted lots of precious time till I am really numb about it.

mme tshiamo: Well I can say there is not much difference from the public buses at KL and Melaka. They problem is that they always wait for the bus to filled up and this waste time.
