KUALA LUMPUR  — Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) announced that the number of users for a Rapid Transit Bus (BRT) has been reduced from 67 to 20 passengers at a time to comply with social distancing in curbing the spread of COVID-19.

He said this to reporters after a working visit at the BRT Sunway Complex today.
