KUALA TERENGGANU – The Terengganu Graduates Association (Permata) is providing 320 free seats on eight buses under its “”Bas Balik Raya” project for undergraduates from the state to return home for the Aidilfitri celebration.
Project director Nizarmuhsin Mohamad said the free bus service was offered based on first come first serve basis where those keen were required to register their names at the Permata Secretariat which had been set up in every zone in the country.
The response was overwhelming with all seats taken up within two days after registration was opened, he told Bernama today.
He said the buses would leave for Terengganu on June 23, with those from the north and south leaving at 5 pm.
The bus from Negeri Sembilan will leave at 5.30 pm and 8 pm from Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, he added.
Nizarmuhsin said the buses were scheduled to arrive at the Terengganu Foundation building here at about 4.30 am on June 24.
The students would be welcome home by the management of Terengganu Foundation and then feted to “sahur” (predawn meal) before returning to their home, he added.
