SPAD reassigns bus routes for 501, 540, 570 and T571


The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will reassign four bus routes in the Sungai Besi Corridor to raise service level for commuters in the affected areas beginning today.

This reassignment is part of the Spad's ongoing efforts to stabilise bus services under the Bus Network Revamp (BNR) project.

The move to reassign these routes comes after SPAD’s assessment of the current bus operator, Metrobus who had failed to comply with the minimum standards set by the Spad under the BNR exercise. 

The reassigned routes are as follows:

1. Route 501 (Putrajaya Sentral – KTM Serdang – HAB Lebuh Pudu) will be operated by Nadi Putra. Operation hours: 6am to 11pm with a frequency of every 30 minutes.

2. Route 540 (Bandar Putra Permai – HAB Lebuh Pudu) will be operated by RapidKL. Operation hours: 6am to 11:30pm with a frequency of every 15 minutes.

3. Route 570 (Serdang Jaya – Serdang Raya – LRT Bukit Jalil) will be operated by RapidKL. Operation hours: 6am to 11pm with a frequency of every 30 minutes.

4. Route T571 (Taman Sri Pulai – Stesen LRT Sungai Besi) will be operated by RapidKL. Operation hours: 6am to 11pm with a frequency of every 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, two other routes (Route 502 and Route 541) will be affected by this reassignment.

Route 502 (Putrajaya Sentral – KTM Serdang) will be merging with Route 501 (Putrajaya Sentral – KTM Serdang – HAB Lebuh Pudu).

It will be operated by Nadi Putra and renumbered as Route 501. Operation hours for the route is from 6am to 11pm with a frequency of 30 minutes.

While Route 541 (Pangsapuri Enggang – Bandar Putra Permai – KTM Serdang) will be realigned to serve Kinrara BK5 LRT station. 

The newly realigned route will run from Kinrara BK5 LRT station- Pangsapuri Enggang- Bandar Putra Permai and will continue to be operated by RapidKL. 

Operation hours for the route is from 6am to 11pm with a frequency of 30 minutes.

SPAD said in a statement that it would like to assure the public that various proactive measures is being taken to resolve all operational issues under the BNR initiative in a timely manner.
