KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd – the operator of the Rapid KL bus service, will implement a fully cashless payment system on all its Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) feeder buses from Feb 1.
In a statement on Tuesday (Jan 29), Prasarana Malaysia Bhd (Prasarana) said a one-month grace period would be given until Feb 28 for current concession card holders (students, senior citizens and the disabled) to switch to a MyRapid Touch n' Go Concession Card to enjoy a 50% discount.
The card can be obtained at http://www.myrapid.com.my, the Pasar Seni concession registration counter, or the Pasar Seni Bus Hub in Kuala Lumpur.
The cashless payment system will cover all 57 feeder bus routes from the MRT Sungai Buloh station to MRT Kajang.
The statement added that the move was in support of the government's aspiration to increase the efficiency of the nation's payment systems.
"Customers are advised to buy the Touch 'n Go card before boarding the bus. Customers who have the My100 or My50 pass can use it for the cashless payment system on the bus," the statement said. - Bernama
