Rapid KL launches ‘on-demand’ DRT van for Sri Rampai, Wangsa Maju area – book T221 on Kumpool

Click to enlarge

Those living in Sri Rampai and Wangsa Maju, good news. Rapid KL has launched the T221 Demand-Responsive-Transit (DRT) service that will connect you to the Sri Rampai LRT station.

The new T221 route covers malls and commercial areas such as Aeon Big Wangsa Maju, Dataran Wangsa Maju, Melawati Mall and Perumahan Wangsa Budi, among other locations.

By the way, this isn’t the usual feeder bus but a van painted in Rapid KL livery. It’s an ‘on-demand’ service outsourced to Kumpool, an e-hailing van booking service that was initially available in Johor Bahru before reaching the Klang Valley. The fare is RM1 per trip.

The on-demand shuttle service gathers passengers’ bookings in real-time and then travels on an optimised route based on everyone’s pick-up points. This should be like the previous Kumpool van deployments, which did not replace the regular scheduled feeder bus. More on Kumpool here.

    DRT has been given solely to Asia Mobiliti Tech and here is the low down, scummy & corrupted truth of this direct no-tender, no-nego award:

    “But before anyone could grasp what the DRT entails, and its connection to Asia Mobiliti Technologies Sdn Bhd, a chorus of calls surfaced for Hannah Yeoh to step down as youth and sports minister.

    This was over an alleged conflict of interest involving Yeoh and one of the recipients of the DRT project, Ramachandran Muniandy, who is the CEO of Asia Mobiliti and her husband.

    Who is behind Asia Mobiliti?

    Ramachandran and Premesh — who is also news portal Malaysiakini’s director and its former CEO — had in 2018 set up the mobility tech company, known as Asia Mobiliti.

    “Ultimately, it was a decision made by the Selangor state government in accordance with its own preferences and at its own discretion,”

    “In my opinion, either the minister or the husband has to resign from their respective posts, or the company should refuse the project,”

    So even if Hannah Yeoh were to resign that is still not enough as the other partner to AMT is Premesh who owns Mkini which is well known to be a PH sponsored propaganda mouthpiece since it was setup. So it goes back that such deals (and many more possibly hidden) continue to benefit those connected with Pakatan. They are no better than the BN they taught us to hate for so many years!

    So where is the transparency they shouted?
    Where is the anti-corrupted they harangued?
    Where is the truth & accountability they promised?

    Either rakyat will allow all their promises to masuk longkang or throw PH gomen into that longkang.

    Your choice people! Don’t wait for GE16!

    • Just pointing out, Kumpool in this article here is owned by Causeway Link not Asia Mobiliti which runs Trek Ride DRT. They are multiple DRT providers in Malaysia right now, the other being Mobi which is owned by Badanbas Coach.

        Dig further you will find the owner/s are linked to PH one way or another. PH lied to us telling that they will be different. Hell no they are just the same!

    • You know what’s funny? Fahmi (The Communications Minister) said that no contract is awarded to Asia Mobiliti, Only proof of concept.


      Where else, MB of Selangor said he is willing to give full info on the Asia Mobiliti appointment.


      I think our country is run by a bunch of f’king clowns. Whose lying and whose not? This is what happen when you let a bunch of clowns run the country. Depan cakap lain, belakang cakap lain. Say no to corruption, open tender. Last-last this happens. Hypocrite!

        Please don’t link freemalaysia today as it is owned by Mkini which is owned by Premesh. Once everyone stop giving fmt publicity, they, and Premesh, will go out off business.

        When PM Najib is back and running the country with a pure BN Gomen with full rakyat support, he will start by lowering the PH cekik darah taxation thru a lower 6% GST to replace 8+10% SST, then direct payments of cash to B40 via BRIM2.0, then inflation will be lower when our RM rises back to RM 2.5 per USD, with a stronger ringgit there will be less reasons for foreign cars to come take our subsidised petrol so there continue to have cheaper petrol for our rakyats, with a stable gomen back on track to high income more investments will flow and this brings more professional jobs for educated rakyats then they no more need to leave the country to work, this helps to bring more prosperity & happiness to all rakyat when everyone has jobs and money in their bank accounts.

        We can’t wait for the day to kick out useless PH Gomen & PMX into Klang River which they repolluted after Najib has cleaned it up! Rakyat was truly senang under PM Najib now we regret putting him down.

      And do what? Overthrow a legitimate coalition government and re-elect PN and Abah who stole so much more through hit Penjana initiative? Who is the advisor for PN? It’s none other than Tun M who gave his kids billions in contract over more than 22 years reign.
