Rapid MRT

Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd (“Rapid Bus”) will employ a fully cashless payment system on all its MRT Feeder buses starting Friday, 1 February 2019. The cashless system will cover all 57 feeder bus routers from Sungai Buloh to Kajang MRT depot.

However, Rapid Bus said that there will be a one-month grace period granted to current concession card holders including students, senior citizens and disabled (OKU) customers. These customers will still be permitted to pay by cash up until 28 February 2019.

For other commuters, they can use any Touch ‘n Go card including the MyRapid Touch ‘n Go card, as well as My100 and My50 products. These cards and passes can be purchased from any MRT, LRT, Monorail or BRT customer service offices. Rapid Bus reminds customers that a minimum balance of MYR3.00 is required on their card before boarding the bus.

The company anticipates that 51 percent of its daily ridership of 60,000 passengers will convert  to the cashless system smoothly. The projection is based on the current cashless penetration on MRT Feeder Bus with an average of 49 percent already opting for cashless means as their payment method.

Rapid Bus, a subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad reiterated reiterated its support for the Government’s initiative for a cashless society.
