KUALA LUMPUR: Bus operations from the Putra Terminal in Chow Kit will be moved to a different location by January next year, said Federal Territories Deputy Minister Datuk J. Loga Bala Mohan (pic).

“Operations from within the terminal has been stopped since August 8, and for now all operations except ticketing are just outside the terminal building.

“City Hall has held discussions with the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and we are in agreement to move the bus operations to another place, latest by January next year,” he said in reply to a question by Ahmad Baihaki Atiqullah (PAS - Kubang Kerian) in Parliament Monday.

Putra Terminal, which serves destinations to the East Coast, is the third main bus terminal after the Integrated Transport Terminal (TBS) and Pudu Sentral terminals, which serve southbound and northbound destinations respectively.

Ahmad Baihaki had raised the question of whether the Putra Terminal will be repaired, as the building’s condition and facilities were rather old.

To that, Loga Bala Mohan said basic maintenance such as those done for toilets, lighting, and the prayer rooms will go on as usual until the moving date for operations.

However, he said he did not know if the new location for operations will be the TBS terminal, or if another location had been chosen.
