KUALA LUMPUR: The rail and bus services operated by Prasarana Malaysia Bhd recorded one million passengers on Tuesday (March 21), the highest daily number since the country entered the endemic phase.
Prasarana, in a statement Saturday (March 25), said it was a leap from the average of 846,000 passengers daily from Jan 1 to March 15, with rail services recording 767,000 passengers, while the bus services recorded 235,000 passengers.
"The figure of one million passengers (on March 21), includes an average of 100,000 passengers who use the Putrajaya Line MRT service that was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on March 16.
"Prasarana thanks all the passengers who use its services and will continue with efforts to ensure the safety, smoothness and stability of the services are maintained for the benefit of the public," read the statement.
It said before Covid-19 hit the country in early 2020, about 1.2 million people used Prasarana's services daily.
Currently, the public gets to enjoy free rides on the Putrajaya Line Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) services, including on the feeder bus service for the Putrajaya Line MRT from Damansara to Putrajaya Sentral, it said, adding that the free rides are provided until March 31.
The public can get the latest information on the services through Rapid KL's social media channels or through the PULSE app which can be downloaded for free. - Bernama
