KUALA LUMPUR: A low passenger volume meant there is no congestion or overcrowding on public railway or bus services, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The Transport Minister said the ministry has instructed the Land Public Transport Agency to conduct random checks at passenger carriages at the KTM Komuter, ERL, MRT, LRT Kelana Jaya lime and Monorail on Sunday (Jan 17).
"The checks also include MRT buses, as well as buses from Sunway Rapid Transit, Rapid KL, Rapid Kuantan and Rapid Penang since early Sunday morning.
"There were no passengers on Rapid Penang while there were few passengers on Rapid Kuantan.
"In conclusion, there was no congestion or overcrowding as the number of passengers is low.
"The passengers adhered to standard operating procedures such as wearing face masks, practising physical distancing and using hand sanitiser," he said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
Public transport will operate as usual in full operating mode during the MCO, he added.
"So far, passenger capacity is still very low. We hope such the situation will be under control until Jan 26," he added.
