GEORGE TOWN, Jan 18 (Bernama) — Public transport company Rapid Penang will introduce a special transit shuttle bus service for factory workers from Seberang Perai to the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone (FIZ), starting March.

Rapid Penang senior operations officer Mohd Azam Omar said 10 buses would be allocated for a direct trip from the Seberang Jaya bus station to Bayan Lepas in an effort to tackle traffic congestion in the city.

He said the two-way bus service would operate from 5am to 10pm from Mondays to Fridays.

“Our survey on the demand for this service shows positive feedback from the public, especially factory workers, because they can leave their vehicles in Seberang Perai and take the bus to George Town,” he told reporters, here Tuesday.

Mohd Azam said the public could view the bus schedule at http://www.rapidpg.com.my.
