Perodua has recently launched a bus stop area costing RM80,000 to provide shelter for the local community around its headquarters.
Perodua Managing Director, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said that the location chosen is very strategic and will provide a large and positive impact for the community around Perodua’s headquarters.
According to Aminar, most consumers use Perodua’s pole signs as a form of shelter while waiting for a bus. Though a traffic light junction is not quite an ideal area to wait for a bus since it would simply interfere with road traffic, it is also offers no protection from our tropical weather.
The new bus stop will now benefit residents, employees and school children who use buses as a mode of transportation as well as other forms of public transportation to commute between Pekan Rawang, Sungai Buaya, Bukit Sentosa, Bukit Beruntung and Kuala Lumpur, he added.
According to a study conducted by Perodua, on average, around 20 locals wait around the nearby area every hour within five working days from 7.00 a.m to 6.00 p.m. Perodua will begin to assess the success of this project by conducting more studies and observations of bus users as well as looking at other nearby areas that require the same infrastructure.
The bus stop project is part of a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative under the “Community Program With Perodua”.
The second project is to hand in RM3,000 to 13 mosques around Perodua’s headquarters.
