RAPID KL has introduced its latest monthly travel cards to provide seamless travel for regular bus and LRT commuters.
Response from users was so good that their Integrated Bus and LRT cards were sold out in a couple of days after the release.
This card, which costs RM125, allows users to travel on the Rapid KL bus, feeder buses and the LRT.
Besides that, the card also allows the holder’s spouse and four children below 12 years old to travel for free on weekends and gazetted public holidays.
Rapid KL's other cards are Bus Integrated System (RM80), Concession Bus System (RM40) and Integrated LRT System (RM90).
Only senior citizens and uniformed schoolchildren under the age of 15 are eligible for the concession card.
Senior manager Katherine Chew explained that the new cards did not reflect a price hike because the integrated bus card allowed commuters to enjoy all the routes.
Previously each route had a separate monthly card and that system has been scraped.
“If you add it up, it is actually much cheaper and more convenient,” she added when contacted.
She also assured that Rapid KL would not increase bus fares despite the recent rise in fuel prices.
