KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will allow public transport and motorcycles to make interstate journeys provided prior approval has been obtained during the conditional movement order (MCO).

Federal CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed (pic) on Thursday (May 7) said they came to the decision after assessing the current situation.

"We observed and studied the movement on highways and federal roads, and saw that traffic was moving smoothly.

"Those on the road today are travellers who had approval to make interstate journeys.

"I would like to remind everyone that only those with approvals would be allowed to use public transportation or motorcycles to make their trips.

"They would need to do so through the Gerak Malaysia app or make a manual application at their nearest police station," he said.

He also said that at present, only public transportation that had valid permits would be allowed to make trips.

He added that interstate travel would only be permitted to those who were stuck in their hometowns and needed to get back to their place of residence or to return to work.

"We have come up with a movement schedule for travellers.

"Those travelling from Kuala Lumpur would need to travel on May 7, while those from Perak, Johor, and Kelantan would be allowed to do so on May 8.

"Those in Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Melaka, and Pahang would be allowed to travel on May 9, while those from Selangor, Negri Sembilan and Terengganu would be allowed to make their trips on May 10," he said.

Comm Huzir urged everyone to stay safe and observe social distancing at all times.
