The four zones are divided as follows: Zone 1 (Morsjaya Commercial Centre, Luak, Riam, Taman Tunku and Taman Jelita), Zone 2 (City centre, waterfront, centre point 1 and 2 and Marina Parkcity), Zone 3 (Pelita Commercial Centre, Boulevard Commercial Centre, Saberkas Commercial Centre, Piasau, Krokop, Central South Yu Seng Road and North Yu Seng Road) and Zone 4 (Bandar Baru Permyjaya, Old Lytong Bazaar, New Lutong bazaar and Senadin).
