Sarawak Metro has announced that it will provide free bus rides to Kuching vaccination Centres.

This is done by extending it’s hydrogen bus route to cover two Covid-19 vaccination centres, which were previously not listed in any of its routes.

The effected centres are the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) in Sejingkat, and Stadium Perpaduan in Petra Jaya.

The transportation company in a statement said the route extension will run until 31 August 2021.

It further explained that the service will also be provided for free as the busses are still undergoing trial operations.

Aside from the two Covid-19 Vaccination Centres, Sarawak Metro further explained that other vaccination centres such as the one at Kozi Square are already covered by their Hydrogen bus service which will still follow the Downtown Heritage Loop.
