A need to change view on public transport

Public transport should be used more frequently, especially among the locals. Unfortunately, it is not the case for the lack of education on its benefits.

In other countries, public transport is often seen as an easy mode of transportation.

However, in Brunei, it is negatively viewed. As a result, most users of public transport are foreigners; and tourists prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In my opinion, the use of public transport should be encouraged as it reduces traffic congestion. We as Bruneians should move away from the comfort of driving in our private cars and start thinking about the environmental impact and traffic congestion as a result of having too many cars on the road while we’ve still got time.
