Transport Minister: Free Prasarana train, bus rides for PWDs from Feb 1

ALL Persons With Disabilities (PWD) cardholders will enjoy free public transportation under Prasarana Malaysia (Prasarana) from Feb 1 next year, said Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook.

He said the initiative involves all mass rapid transit (MRT), light rail transit (LRT), monorail and Prasarana bus services in the Klang Valley.

He said Prasarana was given one month to prepare and coordinate the ticketing system, including giving special concession cards to PWD users.

“PWD users only need to show their card issued by JKM (Social Welfare Department) and apply for the (special concession) card.

“Prasarana agreed to provide free rides for PWDs, although it has a financial impact on Prasarana, but this is part of their CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiative,” he told a press conference at the Stadium Kajang MRT station in Selangor today. – Dec 21, 2023
