KUALA TERENGGANU, 10 Sept (Bernama) -- Masa amat mencemburui beca yang

merupakan antara pengangkutan utama pada era 40an dan 50an apabila peranannya

kini diambil alih kenderaan seperti lori, bas dan teksi.

Namun, di Melaka pelbagai usaha dilakukan bagi memberi kenderaan roda

tiga ''berkuasakan'' tenaga manusia ini nafas baharu antaranya dengan menjadikan

kenderaan itu aset pelancongan penting negeri itu.

Terengganu turut mewarisi kenderaan tradisional itu di mana pusat tumpuannya

di Pasar Kedai Payang, Kuala Terengganu.

Beca di sini tidak ''semoden'' beca di Melaka yang mempunyai radio, lampu

berwarna warni dan perhiasan yang mampu memikat pelancong asing serta tempatan

menaikinya, malah penarik beca di sini kebanyakannya berusia lebih 50 tahun

tetapi masih mengayuh kenderaan itu selagi kudrat mereka masih ada.

Jika Melaka berjaya membuktikan beca mampu dijadikan aset pelancongan

penting, mengapa tidak di Terengganu terutama sempena Tahun Melawat Terengganu

tahun depan.

BECA-PELANCONGAN 2 KUALA TERENGGANU

Seorang penarik beca di sini, Mohamed Ismail Tahir, 58, berkata sebenarnya

pelbagai usaha termasuk dalam bentuk bantuan telah dilakukan bagi menjadikan

beca sebagai tarikan pelancongan, namun belum mencukupi untuk memastikan beca

kekal menjadi aset pelancongan di Terengganu.

"Usaha banyak tapi kebanyakannya sekali sahaja kemudian terus senyap,

pemantauan berterusan juga tiada.

"Bagi saya pihak terlibat jangan bagi (bantuan) sekali habis semua, bagi

sikit-sikit, bulan-bulan tak apa kemudian pantau perkembangan mereka bulan demi

bulan, pastikan mereka terus bertapak ke depan," katanya ketika ditemui Bernama.

Mohamed Ismail yang lebih 10 tahun melakukan pekerjaan itu berkata penarik

beca juga perlu di''modenkan'' terutama dari segi penampilan mereka seiring dengan

usaha memberi nafas baharu kepada perkhidmatan beca itu sendiri.

"Ramai penarik beca ini sudah berusia tetapi kami tahu selok belok sejarah

dan tempat di sini, semua dalam kepala. Jadi kalau kami diberi latihan melayan

pelancong dengan lebih baik dan cara sampaikan maklumat dengan betul kami boleh

jadi barisan depan promosikan Terengganu," katanya.

BECA-PELANCONGAN 3 KUALA LUMPUR

Seorang lagi penarik beca Yusof Abdullah, 67, atau lebih mesra dengan

panggilan Pak Jusoh berkata pendapatan penarik beca di sini akan dapat

ditingkatkan sekiranya usaha menjadikan beca sebagai aset pelancongan itu

berjaya dilaksanakan.

"Sekali jalan saya dapat RM5 hingga RM10 bergantung kepada jauh perjalanan,

kalau lebih 10 kilometer itu dapat lah RM10. Sebulan tak banyak sangat dapat

kalau bulan baik dapatlah RM600 kalau tak baik adalah RM400," katanya.

Berdasarkan pengalaman penulis ketika bertugas di Melaka, penarik beca yang

beroperasi sekitar A'' Farmosa dan Bangunan Staduys memperoleh antara RM20 dan

RM30 sekali perjalanan mengelilingi kawasan bersejarah itu dan ada yang

memperoleh pendapatan sehingga RM2,000 sebulan.

Yusof yang mememerah kudrat mengayuh beca selama 20 tahun berkata sekiranya

penarik beca memperoleh pendapatan lumayan, ia sekaligus menarik

mereka yang lebih muda menceburi pekerjaan itu seperti yang berlaku di Melaka.

"Saya juga mahu cadangkan pihak pelancongan jadikan beca sebagai alat

promosi, mereka boleh letak risalah atau apa-apa maklumat di beca bagi

mudahkan pelancong dapat maklumat dengan cepat. Atau boleh juga cat atau letak

poster pelancongan," katanya.

BECA-PELANCONGAN 4 KUALA TERENGGANU

Pengarah Lembaga Penggalakan Pelancongan Malaysia Negeri Terengganu

(Tourism Malaysia Terengganu) Mohd Nasir Kushairi berkata pihak merancang

melaksanakan pelbagai program bagi mengaktifkan semula beca di Terengganu.

"Beca sebagai sebuah pengangkutan di Terengganu sememangnya sudah tidak

aktif lagi seperti dahulu, jadi kami ada rancangan jangka pendek dan

panjang menjadikan beca ini barisan depan menarik pelancong ke Terengganu.

"Sebagai permulaan, Disember ini kami akan mengadakan program ''food trail''

di mana kita bawa pelancong mengembara menaiki beca untuk merasai masakan

tradisional Terengganu di beberapa kawasan di negeri ini," katanya.

Beliau berkata sempena Tahun Melawat Terengganu 2013 pihaknya

merancang pelbagai promosi pelancongan menggunakan beca dengan kerjasama

pelbagai pihak seperti hotel dan syarikat swasta di negeri ini.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Yayasan Pembangunan Usahawan Terengganu, Azmi Razik

berkata pihaknya kini mengkaji kaedah terbaik memodenkan perkhidmatan beca di

bandar Kuala Terengganu, seterusnya mempertingkat taraf ekonomi penarik beca.

BECA-PELANCONGAN 5 (AKHIR) KUALA TERENGGANU

"Di Melaka kita lihat pelbagai program dilaksana untuk pengayuh beca, itu

program yang baik dan kami lihat perlu dilakukan di sini. Kami akan kemukakan

perancangan dan cadangan itu kepada kerajaan negeri sempena Tahun Melawat

Terengganu 2013.

"Kami cadangkan lepas Payang Walk di kawasan Pasar Kedai Payang siap dibina,

semua kenderaan tidak akan dibenarkan masuk dan orang ramai yang ingin ke pasar

itu perlu menaiki beca atau berjalan kaki," katanya

Beliau berkata satu lagi cadangan ialah memberikan tender kepada sebuah

syarikat mengurus perkhidmatan beca dan penarik beca akan diberi gaji bulanan

dan ini sekaligus dapat menarik lebih ramai golongan muda menyertai bidang ini.
