Stolen Bus Stand??

Was surprised by this bus stand opposite Faber Towers in Taman Desa. Noticed the missing bus stand that had been there all this while but where was it now. Where will the bus commuters wait for their bus if it rains (it does rain in Malaysia if the authorities don't know that yet).

If not mistaken, the bus stand was in good condition and from the steel markings behind the tiled seating on the ground, it was ensured that the remaining steel was smoothen so that it won't injure people who may kick it. The bus stand was taken off just like that.

Normal bus commuters may not know where to voice out such inconvenience. They just live their life as it is.

Will Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (City Hall of Kuala Lumpur) or RapidKL, the bus operator in the area please explain.

Locally a drunk driver ran into our bus stand and knocke dit over, so the city did the same thing, just removed it and smoothed down the steel at the bottom, so that no one would accidentally hurt themselves! It took a year for the city to replace it! Maybe there was an accident and that's why they took it down?! Just an idea! Yake care Johnny!

not defensive lah musa but u havent seen how the bus commuters have to run like mad when there's a downpour. i get to drive but for ppl who decided to use the bus or unable to afford a car, i pity them.

ppl sitting at the top of those corporation/local council do not suffer the same too. so they can't feel for the bus commuters. not that i'm championing for the bus commuters but it's taken too long to erect a new bus stand then.

did I tell you that I use the bus? well, I do... everyday to work. I learn to accept what there is and what there are.. ;p

I must add, the old one that they take down, wasn't that bad at all.. just a matter of standardize the looks.. they tear it all down. such a waste of money.
