I am interested to hear your comments on the NKRA for Public Transport presented on the 17th Dec.
They keep saying it is P&C but for those of us who missed it we would have appreciated the info to be made available online. Do you know any link/source that I can get a hold of the details/soft copy of the Urban Transport componet.?
We are working on getting the comments posted here to our website. They will be complete by the end of the week.
