The Ministry of Communications is calling for members of the public to cast their votes for the image revamping of the country’s public buses, slated to commence by mid-2017.

In a press statement sent by the ministry, a total of 112 entries were received from a competition that challenged the public to come up with public bus colours and designs.

The competition ended last month with the Land Transport Department currently evaluating the best designs that were submitted.

Ten proposed designs and colours have been shortlisted and the public may vote on their favourite design from Monday, June 20 until Sunday, July 3.

“Part of this project scope involves improving the overall public bus system image, not only through more efficient and reliable services but also through rebranding,” read the statement.

“This project is targeted to be implemented by the third quarter of this year for taxis and by mid-2017 for buses,” added the statement.

Those interested to vote can do so by accessing _ltd.gov.bn/SitePages/VOTE_BUSDESIGN.aspx .

The link can also be accessed through the ministry’s website at www.mincom.gov.bn and also the Land Transport Department’s website www.jpd.gov.bn.

“Votes from the public will account for 50 per cent of the evaluation and judging process,” read the statement.

“The Ministry of Communications reserves the right to modify the winning design accordingly to suit technical and other related aspects,” the statement added. – Wail Wardi Wasil
