One of the best solution to reduce traffic on the Penang Bridge is to take public transport or car poll system. Now Penang Government implemented the B.E.S.T (Bridge Express Shuttle Transit) system for the workers in the F.I.Z (Free Industrial Zone) between Bayan Lepas and Seberang Prai. The workers can save the petrol or toll fees up to RM250. They just needed to pay for the parking fees at the B.E.S.T (Park and Ride) points.
A bus shelter was being built at the Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya which would be the initial pick-up and drop off point, while 50 to 60 stops would be put up in front of various factories in Bayan Lepas.
Penang Government hopes this B.E.S.T program will release some of the burden facing by the lower income group due to the fuel price increased tremendously within a short period.
