In the technology services division, Salcon acquired Volksbahn Technologies Sdn Bhd (VBT) with the aim of providing smart city solutions through a 15-years concession granted exclusively by Prasarana Malaysia Bhd to lay and operate fibre-optic cables along the light rail transit (LRT) and monorail lines in the Klang Valley.
Salcon aims to leverage on Prasarana’s more than one million daily commuters to provide advertising, remitting and ticketing services in the future.
