Public Transport Services Will Be Limited To Specific Hours During The Movement Control Order
Author Avatar

In line with the country’s ongoing enforcement of the movement control order, Prasarana Malaysia Berhad has tightened the operating hours for its transport services to 6am to 10am, and 5pm to 10pm – starting from today until 31 March 2020. In other words, there will be no public transport beyond taxis and e-hailing rides between 10am to 5pm.

Rapid KL train services – namely the LRT, MRT, and monorail – will revise the frequency of its trains along with the change in operation hours:

Monday to Friday
  • 6am – 7am: 30-minute frequency
  • 7am – 9am: 10-minute frequency
  • 9am – 10am: 30-minute frequency
  • 5pm – 7pm: 10-minute frequency
  • 7pm – 10pm: 30-minute frequency
Saturday, Sunday, and Public Holidays
  • 6am – 10am: 30-minute frequency
  • 5pm – 10am: 30-minute frequency

All stage buses, such as Rapid KL, Rapid Penang, Rapid Kuantan, Rapid Kamunting, and Rapid Manjung will also only be operating from 6am to 10am, and 5pm to 10pm. You can head over to https://myrapidbus.prasarana.com.my/kiosk for a live update on the current location of the buses. Those using Rapid Penang buses can also download the Rapid Penang Journey Planner app to help them navigate.

Feri Pulau Pinang, on the other hand, will only run a single ferry on an hourly basis during the new timing.

According to senior minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, public transport is only needed by workers travelling to and from work during this period. “That is why we have imposed new operating hours for public transportation. Also, it is difficult to maintain the one-metre social distancing order in public transportation,” he said.

Datuk Seri Ismail also added that the new operating hours will not affect taxis and e-hailing services, but cautioned that e-hailing drivers should follow safety measures and the social distancing order.
