Forum on Public Transport for Disadvantaged Groups

At the moment, I am extremely busy preparing my presentation for a forum on Public Transport for Disadvantaged Groups in Penang. The topic of my presentation is Public Transport from the Perspective of a Wheelchair User. The forum will be held on May 19 at the Kompleks Masyarakat Penyayang. During the forum, a memorandum endorsed by 32 NGOs and several individuals will be presented to Penang State Traffic Management Committee Chairman Dato’ Dr. Teng Hock Nan. Christine, her personal assistant Suti, Professor Lenore Manderson, Wuan and I will be flying to Penang late this evening. Christine will be speaking as a panellist in her capacity as the Coordinator of the Barrier-Free Environment and Accessible Transport Group (BEAT). Lenore is the Professor of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University Australia and is currently here in Malaysia as the consultant for the BAKTI-MIND Project. She has been with us from the early days when BEAT was initiated. Details of the forum and application form are available in the flyer. Updates will resume next week, hopefully…
