Free bus service in Shah Alam, Subang Jaya and Klang
Starting from July onwards, residents in Shah Alam, Subang Jaya and Klang will get to enjoy free public bus service introduced by the Selangor government, The Star reports.
The bus service, which will allow about 24,000 people to commute for free, was implemented after the free bus service in Petaling Jaya, PJ City Bus, which can only take on around 9,000 passengers per day.
According to Selangor Investment, Industry (SME) & Commerce and Transportation Committee Chairman Datuk Teng Chang Khim, the project would cost around RM3.6 million a year.
The proposed routes for the three zones have been submitted to the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) for approval.
The bus service is expected to cover high traffic areas such as government buildings, schools, commercial districts and KTM stations.
“The routes planned by MPSJ will also run along the new Kelana Jaya LRT extension. We will not pass through areas that are being serviced by commercial bus operators because we do not want to compete with them,” said Datuk Teng.
