Public Transport Improvement Amongst the 3 Key Focus of MoT: Anthony Loke

According to Transport Minister Anthony Loke, improvement of public transport, digitalisation of services and road safety are among the key agendas that the Transport Ministry will focus on.

He would also look into having additional trains to further reduce traffic congestion.

However, he would discuss the matter with Prasarana to see the technical constraints if the train frequency could be increased, especially during peak hours.

“Yesterday, I took the Light Rail Transit (LRT) in order to understand the problems faced by users, I need to talk with the operator first to be briefed on their plans.”

“What we hope is to be able to increase the frequency of the train service,” he was quoted as saying.

According to Loke, On the digitalisation of services had been started when he helmed the ministry before, including the number plate registration system, i.e the Road Transport Department (JPJ) eBid.

He also added that, “there are many sectors that we need to digitalise…we must work towards this (digitalisation). My vision is to see all the services we provide to the people can be offered digitally without any physical contact in line with the new norms of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Meanwhile, ongoing projects including the East Coast Rail Link Project (ECRL) would continue.

“We have not gone into the details yet, but one major project that will continue is the ECRL,” Loke added.
