Over the last two days, Rapid KL authorities have caught 81 commuters misusing MyRapid concession cards offering discount on fares meant for students, the elderly and people with disabilities.
Those identified had the cards they were using confiscated.
The 81 concession cards comprised 48 cards meant for students, 31 for the elderly and two for people with disabilities.
According to Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Zohari Sulaiman, they discovered that family members of students who owned MyRapid concession cards were making use of these cards.
“The concession cards were misused by some family members to travel to and from their workplaces,” said Zohari in a statement today.
He added that Rapid Rail found similar stories among those who misused the concession cards for the elderly.
Rapid KL would like to remind the public that it is stated in the terms and conditions that the use of MyRapid concession cards are non-transferable.
“Rapid KL will continue to hunt down errant commuters until there are no more who would dare to break this rule,” said Zohari.
Commuters who are caught misusing MyRapid concession cards will have their cards confiscated and will be blacklisted.
MyRapid concession cards were designed so that students, the elderly and people with disabilities can enjoy 50% fare discounts on all of Rapid KL’s public transportation services.
Customers who have any information to share regarding the misuse of tickets or concession cards can contact Rapid KL at 03-7885 2585 or via their social media accounts.
