PUTRAJAYA, March 12 (Bernama) — The government’s public transportation system masterplan is expected to be ready in nine months, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said.
He said the masterplan for the capital cities would ensure a more coordinated and well planned public transportation system for the country.
“The government has made a decision to come out with the masterplan of public transportation system in all the capital cities of the country, from Kangar all the way to Kota Kinabalu,” he told reporters after meeting representatives from the disabled people organisations, services providers and public transportation operators.
He said the decision to come out with the masterplan was made by the Cabinet committee on public transportation a few months ago.
“We are in the midst of appointing a consultant to carry out the works,” he said.
He said the masterplan would also include the needs of the disabled people.
