DRT service now at Sri Rampai LRT station


Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd has expanded its demand responsive transit (DRT) van service network on the T221 route from Sri Rampai LRT station to Giant Ulu Klang.

Rapid Bus chief executive officer Muhammad Yazurin Sallij said the DRT service would operate simultaneously with Rapid KL buses on the T221 route for two to four weeks.

“Rapid Bus will use this period to analyse usage trends and passenger demand.

“This is a transition period before fully switching to DRT vans as a permanent transportation mode,” he said in a statement, as reported by Bernama.

He said the DRT service offered flexibility to book trips according to desired times through the Kumpool app.

He added that routes were those with relatively low usage and frequency.

“We plan to add routes using this DRT mode, which will be faster, regardless of peak or off-peak hours.

“The travel time for passengers will also be shorter,” he said.

Muhammad Yazurin said there were now a total of five DRT vans, including to areas like Wangsa Maju LRT, Alam Megah LRT, Taman Paramount LRT and Taman Bahagia LRT.

“By end-June, Rapid Bus will expand its DRT network with an additional 15 vans at several other LRT stations in Klang Valley,” he said.

Muhammad Yazurin said the service offered guaranteed seats that could be booked daily from 6am to 11.30pm, with an introductory fare of RM1 per trip.
