Check out the statement here.

Penang government pays Prasarana of RapidPenang RM30 per head per month for those who apply for Mutiara Passes allowing free bus rides until end of year.

Mr Lim MF can be the influencer to encourage more to ride buses and eventually there is no need for more superhighways to cater for rising cars.

Anil do go get Mutiara Pasd, RM5 for processing fee for the card and RM5 for the stored value. For RM10 you can travel whole Penang by buses to witness the daily lifes of commoners that can inspire your writings.

Times have changed. No wonder covid is still 1.5k daily. who wants to be lucky strike with covid in pack tin can? Rapid is under Dumno favoured system. So near, how many buses they have added? Who can tell us the bus time table. They run or crawl at any time. If late, buses can blamed on traffic jam. But light rail or mono rail, they come at certain frequency.

you did not read tunglang’s comment? Once he waited and eventually he gave up. It is too Rapid for him. The Rapid takes hours to arrive. Another case, a Senior wrote he is hitch hiking asking readers if they can give him a lift. Now buses are enclosed environment and close contact. Any virus and germs will be most happy.

See all traffic have to slow down when the long trailer. So long, many blind spots and cant see. Malaysia jalan jalan are like Sungai longkang compare to Tangshan Rivers wide as sea. The roads in China are very wide 6 lanes in one direction making a 12 lane road. In Peng land, there are how many 6 lanes road? The 3 gorges dam, chinese build a big lift to lift up ships from lower level to upper level. Of course Malaysia pun boleh.

Johor will be the first state in Malaysia, and the first in Southeast Asia, to use the Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit (ART) or railless guided bus system. The Iskandar Malaysia region is the pioneer project for implementing this system.

The PN government’s decision to pass an emergency ordinance allowing it to tap into the National Trust Fund (KWAN) for vaccine expenses has stirred up a hornet’s nest, with many questioning the need for such a move.

Putrajaya had previously said the RM3 billion was sufficient to vaccinate 83% of Malaysians.

Now, the cowboys dont carry pistols like colt 45. Now they carry automatics or semi. It is matter of how many per secs. Last time cowboys shot American buffalos – the bisons. Why now they dont eat bisons? Now they eat cows? Wild American buffalos are better but they have to eat reared cows and bulls. Why?
