Vice President Faisal Naseem Saturday inaugurated the newly developed bus stop near State Electric Company Limited (STELCO). STELCO built the new bus stop as a Corporate Social Responsibility project.
The bus stop was developed under STELCO’s ‘Greenlife Initiative’ and is the first bus stop in the Maldives that uses 100% renewable energy sources. Situated on Boduthakurufaanu Magu near Dharubaaruge, the bus stop is air conditioned and has water fountains. While it displays bus routes, it also alerts passengers when the bus is nearing the stop. USB ports for phone charging are also installed at the bus stop.
Speaking at the function held to inaugurate the bus stop, the Vice President emphasised the Government’s commitment to improving public services. Describing the bus stop as a new addition to public transportation in Malé City, the Vice President noted that it would provide extra convenience to commuters.
