Early birds on MyRapid Pulse app to enjoy three months of free insurance, says Prasarana CEO


KUALA LUMPUR: The first 50,000 users of the newly-launched MyRapid Pulse mobile app will be able to enjoy a hospital protection plan for free for the first three months, says Prasarana Malaysia Bhd.

Its president and chief executive officer Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah (pic) said in conjunction with the launch of Phase 1 of the MRT Putrajaya Line, early birds who installed the Pulse app during a seven-day period from Thursday (June 16) would be able to subscribe to the insurance policy from AIG Malaysia.

"The policy will provide additional protection to Rapid KL passengers. Policy holders will receive daily cash allowances of RM50 per day if they're admitted to a hospital for up to 14 days due to certain infectious diseases.

"We hope it further strengthens public confidence to use public transport services particularly those operated by Rapid KL," he said.

MyRapid Pulse is a mobile application designed for a seamless public transportation experience for passengers in the Klang Valley, Penang and Kuantan.

The app's functions include a travel planner, time tracker, real time arrival or estimated time of arrival for buses, push notifications, fare calculator and a map of rail and bus stations and nearby places of interests.

Azharuddin said Prasarana was currently targeting for 100,000 users to download and use MyRapid Pulse by the end of 2022.

He said this while making his opening remarks at the launch of the first phase of the MRT Putrajaya Line that stretches from Kwasa Damansara to Kampung Batu, spanning 17.5km.

Also present at the event was Prime Minister Datuk Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, Finance Minister Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Economy) Datuk Sri Mustapa Mohamed and Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim.
