Kuching Gets a Public Transportation Revamp

Getting around Kuching will be getting a lot easier by the end of 2017, as the Stage Bus Service Transformation (SBST) Kuching begins full force.

Honorary secretary of Sarawak Bus Transport Companies Association, William Chan, announced that the SBST project will span 27,000km comprising of 15 trunk routes and 12 feeder routes daily, with a fleet of 130 new buses.

The new routes and buses are not replacing, but are being added, to the fleets of the five existing stage bus operators in Kuching.

Kuching has grown as a tourist destination and a major concern for tourists is often ease of transportation, and the addition of new buses and scheduled bus routes will undoubtedly bolster the public transport’s efficiency.
