Improve public transport system before banning 'kapcai', gov't told

Published:  |  Modified:

It is unfair to ban 'kapcai' or motorcycles between 50 to 150cc from downtown Kuala Lumpur if the national capital's public transport system is still not comprehensive nor cost effective, said Federal Territories PAS Youth.

"As of now, the costs to take the LRT and bus are far higher than that of riding a bike," said the movement's chief Khairilnizam Khirudin in a statement, noting that the move will impact most youths and the low-income groups.

He said that youths and the low-income groups chose the motorcycle as it can save both time and money.

The movement wants the government to look at and solve the city's transportation woes before taking such measures so that it would not cause hardship on those who are affected.
