AN LRT feeder bus has been introduced in Subang Jaya by Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd.

Having 16 stops, its route runs from the LRT station in USJ7 to the SS19 apartments with a 20-minute frequency.

The operating hours are from 6am to 11.30pm daily and the fare is RM1 per trip.

The service connects SS15, SS17, SS10, USJ2, USJ3, USJ4, USJ6, USJ9 and two universities to the Taipan and USJ7 stations.

The T792 route is currently on trial for three months.

Rapid Bus chief executive Muhammad Yazurin Sallij said the purpose of launching the route on trial is to rebrand the present buses servicing the route as LRT feeder buses.

“We want to make sure when people see the LRT feeder bus, they know the bus will take them to the LRT station,” he said.

He added the total ridership in Subang Jaya together with Bus Selangor and BRT was 25,000 daily.

“We want to change people’s lifestyle from driving to taking public transportation.

“We welcome feedback during the trial period for us to improve and expand in the future,” he said.

At the launch of the T792 route, Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng said public transportation should be the course of the future.

“Building more roads can only solve traffic congestion to a certain extent.

“I am happy Rapid chose Subang Jaya to launch the LRT feeder bus trial.

“I want to thank Rapid for agreeing to have discussions with the community leaders monthly during the trial to improve the service,” she said.

Ng added that Subang Jaya Municipal Council invested in upgrading the pedestrian walkways around LRT stations and also building four new bus stops.
