Penang School Bus Reopens

30 of the 200 members of Penang School Bus Association had switched to other jobs to eke a living.

15 Per Cent of Penang School Bus Operators Retired due to Pandemic  

When the 2021/2022 3rd term school session for Group B states including Penang, re-opens on 10th January, the Penang School Bus Association can heave a sigh of relief, reported by Bernama.

Penang School Bus Association Chairman Ang Beng Teong said, the association will still implement standard operating procedures (SOP) as usual and advised parents to watch their children’s health to help curb any virus transmission among school students.

He said prevention should start from home to minimise infection among the passengers of the school bus, including himself as the bus driver.

Ang revealed that about 15 per cent of the Penang School Bus Association members retired last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He pointed out that 30 of the 200 members of the association had to discontinue with the school bus transport service and switch to other jobs to eke a living.
