    The PRIME Story

    The story of PRIME (Prasarana Integrated Management & Engineering Services Sdn Bhd) is inextricable from the history of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (“Prasarana”).

    Prasarana was incorporated in 1998 by the Malaysian Government to manage the public transportation infrastructure of the country. Today, Prasarana consists of subsidiaries resulting from takeovers and mergers of multiple public transportation companies and the expansion of business portfolios over the years, which together formed the Prasarana Group.

    At the time of the founding of Prasarana Group, the state of public transportation in the country was one of creative complexity, with a multiplicity of independent companies operating the urban rail network and plying bus routes. Although the public transportation landscape was initially overlapping and complex, Prasarana Group managed to transform it into the modern, dynamic and integrated system it is today.

    Prasarana Group was initially tasked with the operations and maintenance of more than 80% of the nation’s public transportation systems, and continues to strive towards meeting the need of integrating, upgrading and expanding both urban rail and buses under its wings. The experience and expertise that Prasarana Group has accumulated over the years ensure that all of its undertakings are aligned with the path of modernisation, bringing efficiencies, cost savings, economic growth and increased quality of life to the public.

    Having integrated and modernised the Malaysian public transportation system and realising the value that it can offer, Prasarana Group created PRIME as the key subsidiary responsible for commercialising operations and maintenance activities by utilising resources within the Prasarana Group.

    Today, PRIME is entrusted by Prasarana Group to bring the experience and proven track record of two decades’ worth of world-class public transportation operations to the world.
