Kuala Lumpur – The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will go to Kelantan to determine aid that can be given to operators of public land transportation in the state affected by the floods.
SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said he would personally go to Kelantan on Friday to send contributions to the flood victims and see what suggestions could be made to the government to help the operators.
“There are many operators of taxis, express buses, school buses and others. As such, we will conduct a study and cooperate with the related agencies before suggesting to the government the form of aid,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after attending the handing over of contributions from operators of the public transportation industry and non-government organisations totalling RM126,500 for flood victims, here today.
He said SPAD would also evaluate damage to railway tracks in Kelantan as a result of the floods.
He said SPAD would also go to Pahang and other states affected by floods if conditions permitted. – Bernama
