|The Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) will be initiating a Pilot Testing Programme for the Iskandar Malaysia Bus Rapid Transit (IMBRT) on 8 April 2021.|
The three-month long programme involves demonstrations of new green technology buses, such as electric and hybrid, from nine local and international bus suppliers. These buses will undergo studies and route feasibility tests, and may potentially be considered as part of the IMBRT fleet.
Through the programme, IRDA and the relevant stakeholders will also evaluate and obtain approval on licenses required for newer green technology buses and obtain feedback from the relevant government agencies on the overall test.
A Media Briefing will be conducted on Wednesday, 17 March 2021 to provide further details of the Pilot Testing Programme.
