I refer to the letter, Transportation woes in Miri's Curtin University . We would like to clarify some points that were brought up in the student's letter.
We feel that the letter did not do justice to the university's image as it is based mainly on the opinion of the student and not based on actual fact. I would like to highlight and clarify a few of the matters that was brought up in the student's letter.
- Students who have paid to live in any student accommodation such as Curtin Village and Curtin Villa is provided the bus service because they paid for the service. As for the students who chose to live outside of the student accommodation, although the students did not pay for the bus service, the university never hesitated to provide them with the bus service. In fact, the university has increased the bus service during peak hours to accommodate the service to all Curtin students. Currently, the shuttle bus from the university runs every 15 minutes.
