Ipoh Bus Project, Malaysia

by | Jan 19, 2018 | Asia, Australia

January is a great time to share travel stories from TC collaborators.

This time, its the Ipoh Bus Project from Ipoh, Malaysia! Alex Lee started the project to freshen up his local bus stop that had gone without an update for 20 years. What came of it was a movement about buses, the bus system and the possibilities of placemaking through the bus system and its community!

The project shows what you can do with just one can of paint, an idea and mission. In the months after the first bus stop, all of the bus stop on the street were renovated. 

Sydney has also seen public art based around transport hubs, see our TC article about Interloop Station Art, Sydney and Creative Bus Stop Brisbane.
