If you want to try your luck for free bus rides, check out this initiative by the KLSCAH Civil Rights Committee, Sayangi Kinrara and SKLHA Youth, which is offering FOC seats from Puchong to Johor, East Coast, Ipoh-Taiping and Penang-Kedah. Buses depart the night before election day. Very nice of them.
