Reducing parking bays in KL buildings will work if public transport is good
Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor announced the possibility of eliminating parking bays in buildings in the city area to reduce traffic.
MCM hopes City Hall would scrutinise public transportation for efficiency, safety, connectivity, affordability and convenience, before taking such a measure.
In London and Tokyo, commuters opt for public transportation.
They are likely to change the way they commute if facilities are available to them.
Doing away with parking in buildings may hold benefits, but only in the future when a public transportation infrastructure blueprint has been fully realised.
Actions and decisions made today will ensure the viability of our tomorrow.
