A procedure to select a UE as a relay between a machine-type communication (MTC) device and a base station is desired to improve communication between the MTC device and the base station. The apparatus may be a machine-type communication user equipment (M-UE). The apparatus transmits, to one or more user equipments (UEs), an access request to request access to a base station through one or more of the one or more UEs as a relay. The apparatus receives an access request response from the base station, the access request response including selection information about selection of at least one of the one or more UEs as a relay between the M-UE and the base station.
