An increase number of private vehicles in the city causes traffic congestion and it is the result because of low level of usage for public transportation in Melaka. Unattractive public bus system might be the reason why the usage of public bus in Melaka is low. Thus, performance analysis is crucial in order to improve the bus service provided by Panorama Bus Sdn. Bhd. as this is the only public bus service that were offered in Melaka Tengah district.
