No disruption of public transport at HIDE-flagged stations


PETALING JAYA: All public transport services at stations and terminals listed under the Hotspot Identification for Dynamic Engagement (HIDE) system will remain operative to facilitate frontliners and be available in the event of medical emergencies, says the Transport Ministry.

“Keeping transport services running is crucial for the country, especially for frontliners who must rely on their continued operations even during the movement control order in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

“In the event of any emergency, it is important that all public transport stations remain open to evacuate or dispatch emergency medical services to our passengers, ” the ministry said in a statement yesterday.

The stations and terminals flagged by the HIDE system are LRT KLCC, LRT Masjid Jamek and KL Sentral.

The ministry assured the public that these stations are equipped with thermal scanners and adopt strict enforcement of the Covid-19 prevention standard operating procedure.

But it noted that all retail outlets in the affected stations would be closed for three days beginning yesterday until tomorrow.

The ministry reminded public transport users to comply with SOP at all stations and terminals.
