PETALING JAYA: Information about the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project has gone mobile via an MRT Information Truck (MIT).
Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd chief executive officer, Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid, said the MIT is equipped with the Hawkeye for 360 degree viewing of the route, integrated television panel and three browsing laptops.
He said the public now has better access to MRT personnel for enquiries about the 31 stations along the Sungai Buloh-Kajang route. Two personnel will be stationed with each MIT.
The air-conditioned, free-entry MIT was launched at 1Utama Shopping Centre here. It operates from 9am to 6pm, Tuesdays to Sundays, and is able to accommodate eight visitors per session.
Azhar said the facilities are user-friendly for visitors from school-level up to senior citizens. MIT operates in Malay, English and Mandarin, while brochures are available in Malay and English.
"The MIT will park at places closest to the alignment and expand from that," said Azhar.
"It will tour high-density areas including night markets, mosques after Friday prayers, schools, residential estates, universities and malls.
A visitor, Taman Tun Dr Ismail resident Qal Hidayat, said the MIT helps to clarify doubts and provide for better engagement with MRT Corp Sdn Bhd.
MRT Corp Sdn Bhd strategic communications and public relations director, Amir Mahmood Razak, said MRT would give feedback via email to members of the public whose questions needed to be reviewed.
Azhar, meanwhile, also presented a RM10,000 prize and a certificate of recognition to Low Kean Keong, 36, from Kuala Lumpur for designing the MRT logo.
