Bus Companies Urged to Brush Up Bus Stops

Date Posted: 2000-03-10

Eiroku Oshiro, Director of the Maintenance Section of Okinawa Citizens' Summit Promotion Council, paid a visit to the offices of the Okinawa Prefecture Bus Operators’ Association, Tuesday. During his trip there, he requested that the member companies take steps to improve the appearance of their bus stops, especially in areas surrounding the G-8 Summit venue, Busena Terrace Resort in Nago.

According to Oshiro, the bus stops are currently less than up to par. “For example, when you travel along Highway 58, you see broken glass, trash and graffiti at almost all bus stops,” Oshiro complained. “At the very least bus stops in Yomitan, Onna and Nago City should be cleaned up.”

Oshiro also thinks the effort should go beyond the Summit. “We all should recognize that Okinawa is a resort island where tourists come to spend their money at leisure, and in order to enforce that image everyone’s effort is needed to keep both public and private places clean,” he said. He also believes that, when the bus stops are kept clean, people would increase their use of buses for transportation.

On their part, members of the Okinawa Prefecture Bus Operators’ Association agree. In his reply statement, Association Director Yasuaki Nakayama stated, “Yes, we have plans to clean and improve the bus stops, and we will make sure that our buses will also be clean inside and out.”
