Petaling Jaya mayor Mohd Azizi Mohd Zain told reporters the free shuttle service is to ferry students to their schools within the city. "It will be available in the morning from 6.30am and no members of the public will be allowed to board the bus except for students in school uniform," Mohd Azizi said at a press conference after the MBPJ full board meeting, today.

On a separate issue, MBPJ will set up a special task force with the police and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to eradicate the problem of illegal banners in the city. "The task force will be looking into the illegal banners, bunting and stickers that have been put up on lampposts, trees and public places," Mohd Azizi said. "In an effort to stop the culprits from putting up the banners again, we are also planning to paint "anti-stick" paint on signboards and lamp posts," he added.
