KUALA LUMPUR : From Jan 1 next year, commuters can now take unlimited rides on land public transport with an unlimited travel pass.
The unlimited travel pass, known as My50 and My100, worth RM50 and RM100 respectively, is valid for 30 days from the date of purchase on MyKad, MyKid and MyTentera.
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad launched the new pass at KL Sentral here today (Dec 1).
This is an effort towards a cashless society to lower the cost of living of the people, said Dr Mahathir.
The My100 pass allows commuters to access unlimited ride for 30 days on all forms of RapidKL rail and road transport, including MRT, LRT, monorail, BRT Sunway, RapidKL buses and MRT feeder buses.
The My50 pass can enjoy unlimited rides for a period of 30 days on all RapidKL buses and MRT feeder buses, not including BRT, for RM50.
Also present at the launch were Transport Minister Loke Siew Fook, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar and Prasarana Chief executive officer Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Mohamed Hussain.
Ten top national sport figures were also introduced during the launching event to act as ambassadors of the new unlimited travel pass.
The passes, which will be activated on Jan 1 next year, can be bought from today onwards at all LRT and MRT stations and four main bus hubs at Shah Alam, Greenwood, Sri Nilam and Kajang using MyKad, MyKid and MyTentera.
The passes can later be topped up at Touch N Go counters.
