Rapid Bus, which operates the Rapid KL feeder bus service, is set to begin a fully cashless payment system for all of its MRT feeder buses from Friday, February 1. According to Prasarana, a one-month grace period will be given to current concession card holders such as students, senior citizens and the disabled, to switch to the MyRapid Touch n’ Go concession card and enjoy a 50% fare discount.

All 57 feeder bus routes from Sungai Buloh to the Kajang MRT depot will use the cashless payment system, it said, adding that 51% of its 60,000 daily ridership is expected to convert to the cashless system smoothly.

“Prasarana Malaysia and Rapid Bus are always keen and will continuously be behind the idea of cashless society to support the Government’s initiative. Customers are advised to purchase Touch ‘n Go card before boarding the bus to ensure the swiftness of their journey with us. MyRapid Touch ‘n Card can be purchased from any MRT, LRT, Monorail or BRT customer service office,” Rapid Bus said.

The My100 and My50 passes can be used for making the cashless payments, and these can be purchased from any MRT, LRT, Monorail or BRT customer service office. Customers will however need to remember to have a minimum balance of RM3 on their card before boarding the bus. The cards can be reloaded at all Touch n Go reload points.
