An efficient transportation system will not only move people, but also serve as an economic catalyst and help protect Penang’s irreplaceable cultural and historical resources.
As a state government close to the people, the administration believes public participation through meaningful communication and engagements will assist the planning process.
Many engagements and events have been organised to hear the people’s views and to raise awareness on the projects, initiatives and services that will be offered via the PTMP. More programmes will be held as the PTMP progresses.
