The Land Public Transport Commission, known by its BM acronym SPAD, has been officially set loose to improve public transport in Malaysia.
The Land Public Transport Act empowers SPAD to support the creation of independent Land Public Transport Forums to discuss public transport issues and generate feedback & suggestions to improve the planning, operations, management and financing of public transport in Malaysia.
TRANSIT is the first of these Land Public Transport Forums. Hence, we need your feedback and suggestions about how to improve public transport and make SPAD operate effectively.
