Bus Ban Plea

SCMP | Updated on Nov 20, 2008

In the letter (“Why allow polluting buses?” November 17) Mary Chan rightly asks why buses belching black smoke are allowed.

I would add to the list a ban on buses and all traffic coming up D’Aguilar Street and turning onto Stanley and Wellington streets. These areas should be converted to pedestrian use only with allowances for the occasional delivery vehicle to service the businesses there. But do we really need massive double-decker buses, minibuses and a raft of taxis and private cars cramming these small side streets? The answer is no.

I am sick of walking towards Wellington Street only to have a bus throw choking clouds of black smoke into my face. It is unacceptable.
