IPOH: Perak's Hop-on Hop-off buses will no longer be making a stop at the Movie Animation Park Studios following its closure earlier this year.
State Tourism Committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohd Radzi said the buses would instead stop at the Gunung Lang Recreational Park once it resumes operations on Aug 1.
Nolee Ashilin said the new stop was among several locations covered by the bus.
Other stops, she said, included Little India, Ipoh Old Town, Octagon shopping centre, Majestic Hotel, Panglima Kinta Mosque and Gerbang Malam," she told reporters during a pre-launch of the bus service at Ipoh old town, here on Thursday (July 23).
"For the out-circuit route, the stops include Sunway Lost World of Tambun, the pomelo orchard farm in Tambun, Sam Poh Tong cave temple, Gopeng Bus Station, Kellie’s Castle in Batu Gajah and Silveritage in Medan Gopeng, ” she said.
Nolee said the bus services had been halted for nearly five months due to the movement control order (MCO).
"Since the interstate travel ban has been lifted, we are glad to have the bus back in service," she said, adding that the services would be available during weekends from 8.30am to 9.30pm.
“We have allocated three buses for the services that will cover destinations in Ipoh until Batu Gajah.
"Two buses will be for the out-circuit route and one for in-circuit, ” she said.
