Trinity Group builds first air-conditioned bus stop

PUCHONG: Trinity Group Sdn Bhd has unveiled the country’s first air-conditioned bus stop.

Located in front of Trinity Group’s office in The Zest commercial development at Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, the bus stop cost RM83,000 to build and maintenance is expected to cost RM1,000 to RM2,000 a month.

According to Trinity Group managing director Datuk Neoh Soo Keat, the bus stop has also been entered in the Malaysian Book of Records as the first such bus stop in the country.

The building and maintenance cost of the bus stop by the developer is part of the group’s corporate social responsibility initiative, said Neoh when unveiling the air-conditioned bus stop yesterday.

The Zest at Kinrara 9 is a commercial development comprising 20 shop lots, 24 retail lots and three blocks of serviced apartments built on 5.6 acres with a gross development value of RM250 million. Also in the vicinity is the developer’s The Z Residence condominium project.

“This affirms our corporate value of ‘Building communities and enriching lives’ and upholds our customer-centric excellence commitment,” said Neoh.

He added that there was no other bus stop along the 12km stretch of road even though about 112,000 vehicles ply the area daily.

The group plans to build more air-conditioned bus stops in the area if there is positive response to its first effort.
