THE Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) was honoured with the first-ever International Best Practices Award for Transportation Innovation, Reform, and Multi-Modal Planning by the International Association of Transportation Regulators (IATR).

United States-based IATR board member Matthew Daus presented the award to SPAD chief executive officer Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah at the Land Public Transport Symposium 2017.

In the citation read out by Daus, who was also a presenter at the symposium, SPAD was recognised for its efforts in formulating coherent policies and implementing national reforms from a previously fragmented land public transport landscape.

One such significant move was the recent e-hailing service regulatory framework.

“On behalf of the IATR, we want to thank you, and congratulate you,” Daus said.

Mohd Azharuddin expressed his gratitude for IATR’s recognition of SPAD’s efforts.

“The IATR award acknowledges the significant work carried out by SPAD over the last seven years and the Malaysian government’s commitment to adopting a holistic perspective to implement the vision for a vastly improved public transport system that can quickly adapt to the challenges of a country that is on its way to being a developed nation,” he said.

Established as part of the Prime Minister’s public service delivery transformation agenda, SPAD was entrusted with the substantial mandate of improving the land public transport industry in peninsular Malaysia to uplift livability standards and quality of life for citizens.
