The Ministry of Transport (MOT) is offering free stage bus rides for a select group of people

Individuals with disabilities (OKUs), the elderly, children aged six and below, and schoolchildren aged seven to 17, can now travel for free on the myBAS stage bus service.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke said that more than 2,500 passengers will benefit from the concession pass

The concession pass — implemented under the Stage Bus Service Transformation (SBST) programme — will be available in Johor Bahru, Ipoh, and Seremban.

"This is another initiative by the ministry under the Stage Bus Service Transformation programme to help reduce the living costs of the people," Loke told reporters during the launching of the concession pass at Terminal One bus station in Seremban last week.

"Those eligible will only have to bring their MyKad, MyKid, or MyTentera identification document, or the OKU card issued by the Welfare Department when applying," he added.

The service will cover a total of 58 bus routes, including 23 in Seremban, 19 in Johor Bahru, and another 16 in Ipoh.

The programme will eventually expand to other states; however, the transport minister did not reveal any specific timeline

Eligible passengers can register for the concession pass at the myBAS service counters in Seremban, Ipoh, and Johor Bahru.

Don't forget to bring your identification documents such as MyKid, MyKad, or MyTentera.

Children aged six and below do not need to register.
