Legal Updates for August 2017

Recent Developments in E-hailing Services

The Land Public Transport (Amendment) Bill 2017 and the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (Amendment) Bill 2017 ("Bills") were passed at the Dewan Rakyat. The Bills are still waiting to be endorsed by the Dewan Negara and given the Royal Assent before being gazetted and enforced. Once these Bills come into force, they would have the effect of legalising e-hailing services.
