Van-hailing service takes off

KUALA LUMPUR: Prasarana Malaysia Bhd and a transportation company, Kumpool, are conducting a pilot van-hailing service project between residential homes and public transport stations.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the public can use the service provided at a reasonable fare of RM1 for each use, with the service operating in the Wangsa Maju here and Alam Megah, in Shah Alam, Selangor, reported Bernama.

Loke said the Transport Ministry is in discussions with ehailing companies to introduce the concept of ride-sharing to allow their drivers to pick up more than one passenger (strangers sharing the same car).

“This will directly lower the fare for ehailing users,” he added.
