Penang is all set to foster a society that is progressive, creative, sustainable, prosperous and empowered. But for this, a seamless and highly accessible public transportation system is crucial.

Over many centuries, Penang has been known by many names – the early Malays called it Pulau Ka-Satu (which means First or Single Island) while the Chinese (in the 15th century, during Ming Dynasty Admiral Zheng He’s expeditions to the South Sea) called it Binláng Yù . More recently Penang has been called the Island of Pearls, and Silicon Island for its high-tech manufacturing plants.
