Fare-free MyBAS Bus Services Starting Today

The “MyBAS Concession” initiative which offers fare-free bus services to several target groups is being viewed positively due to its encouraged use of public transportation and savings on expenditure.

It has been so well received that some users hope that the initiative, which targets the disabled, the elderly, children and students aged seven to 17 in Negeri Sembilan, Johor and Perak, can be expanded to other states.

Bernama reported that a 64-year-old who only wanted to be known as Pang said the initiative could reduce the cost of living for those who often travel by bus.

“I live in Menglembu and always take the bus to the Raja Permaisuri Hospital Bainun Ipoh for my eye treatment. I hope the government continues providing these facilities for free for the elderly and those in need,” Pang shared his viewpoint to the media.

According to the head of MyBAS Concessions operations at the Ipoh bus station, Ahmad Zakwan, those eligible can board any of the 54 buses operating on the 16 routes around Ipoh from 5.40 am to 9.55 pm daily.

Many passengers feel that the initiative can encourage even more people in the state to utilise public transportation, especially housewives and students.

Those who are eligible can register at the myBAS service counters by producing identification documents such as MyKid, MyKad or MyTentera while children aged six and below need not register.
