SPAD To Launch New Travel Planner App With Live InfoAuto News
The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will be launching a new mobile application to make it easier for commuters to access all the transportation networks available to them to better plan their journey.
According to The Malaysian Insider, the app is in its development stages and, once finished, will be able to provide real time travel information for all transportation services under SPAD's jurisdiction.
The app will be available during the first quarter of 2016 and will be a free download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, said SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.
"The journey planner app is expected to help commuters better plan their trips using public transport. This also includes the ERL and eventually the MRT lines as well," he said at an Interim Stage Bus Support Funds (ISBSF) event.
Syed Hamid also commented on the upcoming proposal submission to the cabinet concerning the fare increase for LRT and Monorail services at the end of August, with some fares having not been revised in 20 years.
"The proposal will be discussed with other ministries. We will also look into concessions for students, senior citizens and the disabled. Prasarana will make the announcement when it is approved by the end of the year," he said.
