CELCOM Axiata Bhd said it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Volksbahn Technologies Sdn Bhd to provide communication and digital services to commuters on the Klang Valley’s LRT (light rail transit) and monorail services.
The MoU marks the first-ever collaboration between a telco and VBT, a smart city infrastructure provider, Celcom said in a statement.
