Abstract: The sustainable public transportations represent one of the civilization implements in the development countries including Malaysia. The increase of the automobile vehicles in the Malaysian cities represents the civilization challenge in Malaysian Infrastructure development. Depending on the estimations conducted in 2005 for the number of automobile vehicles will increase to 15, 0000 million vehicles by 2020. Furthermore, it has been estimated that the motorcycles number is higher than the other types of the vehicles. The implications of the crucial increasing of street vehicles will disrupt widely the environment and human rather than the other types of the Malaysian infrastructure built. Therefore, the scientists suggest the Malaysian government to encourage the sustainable public transportation by reducing the costs and the ground fuel elimination. In addition, facilitation of manufacturing of the free fuel vehicles may contribute the dilemma reduction.
