A total of 52 brand-new buses abandoned in Wenling City, Zhejiang have now become a place where people retreat to do their business.
These school buses were a 20,000,000 RMB investment by the Anhui Taizhou Chamber of Commerce. Due to a lack of demand, the vehicles were left parked in an open area of the city’s Zishengchuang Village for over a year. The village wants the buses moved to construct houses in the area.
Eventually the buses started being treated as public toilets in the village, causing the area to smell extensively.
Zheng Yunlong, an officer in the Village, said that the Chamber had initially agreed to pay 5,000 RMB per month as a parking fee, but it failed to cough up the cash after the first two months.
Zheng said that they will take forceful measures to remove the buses if the owner doesn’t take action.
Web users commented that the buses were “a huge waste”, and suggested sending the vehicles to other places in need of them rather than allowing the village to destroy or dispose of them.
