In an update regarding the Movement Control Order (MCO), public transportation services will be limited to operate only during specific hours throughout the implementation of MCO. According to Berita Awani, these services will only be allowed to operate from 6am to 10am and 5pm to 10pm daily.

However, this rule does not apply for all modes of transportation. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated that e-hailing services are allowed to operate as usual. But, that is with conditions, such as drivers must practice social distancing and also wear face masks.
