Causeway Link Grants Free Bus Services for the Society Deaf of Johor Students
The Management allocated an amount of RM12, 600 per month for the free bus services for 40 students from Persatuan Orang Pekak Johor (Society Deaf of Johor Organization or SDJO). The said sponsorship was based on the request of Encik Mohamad Yazid Bin Bain, President of SDJO on the 4th of January 2017. The free bus service covers:
(Asrama S.K. Pendidikan Khas JB)
(S.M.K Taman Sutera)
|Time||Bus Departure||Bus Arrival||Bus Departure||Bus Arrival|
|6.45 AM||7.00 AM||1.55 PM||2.15 PM|
Mr Lim Han Weng, CEO and Chairman for Handal Indah Group of Companies (HIGC), generously granted the request of Sponsorship from Encik Yazid. According to Ms Agnes Tan Poh Yoh, Operations Admin Head: “the said free bus service took effect on the 15th of January 2017 and it will be continued until further notice”.
Meanwhile, the request was based on the need of the students for transportation as the location of their school is about 2 kilometres away from their hostel. Encik Yazid also highlighted the effect of weather condition as the students are exposed on hot weather and sometimes affected by rain which would affect their health condition.
Encik Yazid also added in his letter of request: “Being the President of the Organization, the free bus service will be a great help as the students will not be exposed to any accidents or unwanted crimes. The students will not miss their classes as well”.
