With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting the country, the Malaysian government has issued a standard operating procedure (SOP) for safe travel in various cities. Strict following of the coronavirus precautionary measures has been made mandatory. Considering this, bus operators like redBus are offering additional services for safe travel during this time.
redBus has launched a special boarding pass with a QR code that offers passengers a way to avoid queues and hop on to the Melaka Sentral bus. The journey of Melaka Sentral to TBS has been made easy through the Melaka Sentral boarding pass. Earlier passengers had to stand in long queues at the Melaka Sentral bus terminal for their boarding pass even when they had a confirmed reservation for a bus. The Melaka Sentral online ticket had to be exchanged for a physical boarding pass at the Melaka Sentral bus terminal. With their online boarding pass, they will now be able to head directly to the boarding area. The boarding pass comes with a QR code that passengers can scan at Melaka bus station and directly board the bus.
In the current COVID crisis, this boarding pass comes as a great relief for passengers. Passengers earlier had to stand in long queues at Melaka bus station and exchange their Melaka Sentral online ticket with the boarding pass. But with this service, there is no need for that. Passengers can safely travel without being a part of long crowded queues.
This boarding pass service also saves tons of time for passengers that they earlier had to spend standing in queues and waiting at the entry point. They can now travel from Melaka Sentral to Larkin without wasting an extra second at the Melaka Sentral bus terminal or in the boarding process.
