Kuala Lumpur - Klang BRT (Budget 2016)

During Budget 2016 tabled by Malaysian corrupted leader, RM1 billion to be allocated for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Kota Kinabalu and the RM1.5 Billion for the Kuala Lumpur - Klang BRT.

This is shocking announcement to include BRT system as part of transportation system in Kota Kinabalu when tram service or feeder bus will work in a sloppy city. Rationale of the project is behind some mysterious trade off between leaders of the affected party.
