One thing that makes us feel good about moving around without a car here is the quality of bus service in Halifax. Despite it not being as metro as Toronto, rest assured that bus service is to its mark compared to Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley back home.
Who cares about train or rail transit when you have great bus service that comes on time and on schedule!
Top that up, they even have a buses for disable
where the allow for people on wheel chair to go up to the bus on a ramp.
To top that up, the buses also kneels so that it won't tired elderly from jumping up and off the bus.
better yet, you can even attach your bicycle to the front of the bus in the even that you intend to take it around.
Malaysia should learn from this. Of course I don't have much hope that they would.
