No more busses?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

No more busses?

Postby Soi Dog » Tue May 20, 2014 5:23 am

From the PP Post.
Interview with bus company executive wrote:You are the only private company to get a licence from the municipality to take over the bus service after the one-month trail period with the JICA. Why did you stop?
Of course, after the JICA, we got authorisation to run the business, but my requests [to City Hall] were not met; therefore, we think that we cannot continue the business because nobody wants to run it when it cannot make profit.
Profit? You expected a profit after operating one month? Did you do the math before getting into this line of work?

For once, I doubt this is really a case of pure greed. The numbers probably don't add up. Even in the west, transit systems are notorious for being money drains and constantly need government subsidies/assistance. It's a shame the government can't see past it's nose on this issue though, as the traffic will keep increasing and is quickly becoming one of the city's biggest problems. Plus, the buses were donated...

Agree, but a retarded hamster could have warned you about this...don't mention that 4-letter word PLAN.

One take is that there is potential (or perceived potential) to make money and someone want s to take it over...doubt that.
