The Go-KL City Bus service operates daily from 6am to 11pm and promises a five minute frequency during peak hours, and 15-minutes at off peak hours.
The latest initiative by the government to resolve Kuala Lumpur’s transport woes is a most welcome venture undertaken by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD). For the first two loops which began on the morning of Merdeka 2012, 15 buses seating 60 passengers each will cover an area of 13.9km with 25 stops.
This new free intracity bus service is called Go-KL City Bus, and its salient features are that it’s free, disabled friendly, wifi enabled, has security cameras installed both onboard and facing outwards, has GPS, and will have undercover enforcement officers riding along with normal passengers to ensure no untoward incidents.
The bus service is also eco-friendly as a sapling will be planted for every cumulative 1000km, to offset the estimated carbon emission of 0.11 metric tons. Furthermore, the old bus tires will go towards creating artificial reefs to help restore damaged coral reefs and enhance fisheries.
Currently it covers two loops over the central business district (CBD); with one starting from KLCC and the other from Pasar Seni. By year-end, SPAD plans to add another two loops.
