30,000 Passengers Are Scheduled to Exit TBS – Transport Minister Pushes for QR Code Check-In for Raya Weekend

QR code check in

More than 30,000 passengers are anticipated to leave the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) this weekend, according to a statement made today by Transport Minister Anthony Loke. This announcement is intended to help manage the surge of travelers returning home for the Aidilfitri celebrations. Loke has urged online bus ticketing systems to quickly implement the QR code check-in method, if they haven’t already, in order to promote efficient operations.

Loke emphasized the noteworthy departure rate during his tour of the national bus terminal. At peak hours, busses depart from TBS every 1.5 minutes, or about 40 buses per hour. “The implementation of QR code check-ins by online bus ticketing service providers like redBus, in collaboration with Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, has been successful,” Loke stated.

Looking back on the Aidilfitri season 2023, Loke highlighted the long lines for QR code retrieval. It is anticipated that this technology will greatly improve departure process efficiency by reducing terminal traffic.

The Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) has authorized the Temporary Change of License to add 218 buses as of May 29, 2024, in order to meet the increased demand for tickets. Bus operators had to submit their applications for this extension by today at 4 PM. Even with the increase in online ticket sales this year, which made up 70% of overall sales, tickets to the east coast of the Peninsula sold out fast. On the other hand, adding more buses can increase ticket availability at the last minute.
