Transport Ministry committed to helping the disabled, says Dr Wee

PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry is committed to helping people with disabilities with their transportation and mobility needs, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

“We are always committed and hard at work to meet the needs of the disabled in terms of providing public transportation facilities and in giving fare discounts to safeguard their wellbeing.

“The disabled community is special. They are people who are strong and determined to endure life’s trials.

“As a society that cares, we must always try to be there for them when they are in need,” said the Transport Minister in a Facebook post on Thursday (Dec 3) in conjunction with the International Day of Disabled Persons.

He said there are 581,265 disabled people registered with the Welfare Department according to their records.

“If there are people with disabilities who have yet to register living in your area, help them so they can get registered with the Welfare Department.

“This is because there are a lot of assistance and facilities available to them," he said.
