TO further promote comfortable commuting, Rapid KL has introduced a fleet of new long haul buses to serve different routes in the Klang Valley.
There are currently 39 of these buses and the numbers are expected to increase to 150 by the middle of this month.
Eighteen of these buses have been allocated for the express lines – E1 from Putrajaya Sentral to Pasar Seni, E2 from Terminal Kajang to Pasar Seni and E4 from Klang to Pasar Seni.
“All three routes have minimal stops. With the new buses, customers can travel in comfort,” said Rapid KL chief operating officer Mohd Ali Mohd Nor.
“We are also putting these buses on selected trunk routes. These routes have become longer and journey time has also increased,” he explained.
The buses has have a seating capacity of can seat 39 passengers and carry 20 standing passengers at one time. The express routes E1, E2, and E4 are now priced at RM 3 one way and the all day unlimited ride ticket is now RM 5.
“We are introducing single journey tickets for the express route to provide flexibility to customers.
“With the express service made available at 30-minute intervals and the new features of the buses, we believe customers would benefit as these buses provide maximum comfort and value for money.”
