The Pakatan Harapan (PH) government yesterday launched the unlimited travel pass, known as My100 and My50, in a move to reduce the cost of living for the people.
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the facility, which would be implemented in the Klang Valley effective Jan 1, 2019, would also be extended to other states in the future.
“As a trial run, we will start in Kuala Lumpur so we can know if there are weaknesses to rectify. We are doing this to reduce the people’s burden so that they can enjoy a better life,” he said at the launch of the travel pass at KL Sentral yesterday.
Subscription for the travel pass can be made using MyKad, MyKid and MyTentera at the Touch and Go to ensure that the facility is enjoyed by Malaysians only. The My100 pass allows commuters to access unlimited ride for 30 days on all forms of RapidKL rail and road transport, including MRT, LRT, monorail, BRT Sunway, RapidKL buses and MRT feeder buses.
With the My50 pass, commuters can enjoy unlimited rides for a period of 30 days on all RapidKL buses and MRT feeder buses, not including BRT.
