Penangites, there is no more excuse for you not to use the public transportation because the state government is giving you free shuttle services!
In collaboration with RapidPenang
, the Congestion Alleviation Transport (CAT) free shuttle service
has started operating today.
According to The Sun
, a total of 52 buses
are scheduled to cover six routes on the island and mainland on a 16km loop every 15 minutes, stopping at places like shopping malls, government hospital, government offices and schools.
The shuttle will operate from 5.30am to 11.45pm
, covering Jalan Paya Terubong, Jalan Air Itam, Jalan Semarak Api, Bandar Baru Air Itam, Lebuhraya Thean Tek and Jalan Padang Tembak.
So this is a good time to start reducing our carbon footprint on the island!
Psst... RapidKL, can we get more free shuttle services around Klang Valley too?
