Penangites, we’ve got good news!
The long anticipated My50 unlimited travel passes will soon be made available for RapidPenang by the second half of this year, as our Minister of Transport Anthony Loke recently announced, as reported by NST.
During a press conference today (8 Jan), Anthony was quoted as saying,
“We hope it could be introduced in the quarter or by the second half of this year. I have asked Prasarana to study (this matter) immediately and work out a proposal.”
Available only to citizens holding MyKad and MyTentera, the My50 and My100 passes will allow holders unlimited rides on RapidKL trains and buses every 30 days, with their fees capped at RM50 and RM100 respectively.
The My50 allows holders to utilise Rapid KL’s bus and MRT feeder bus services (excluding BRT), whilst the My100 pass qualifies holders unlimited rides on the LRT, MRT, Monorail, BRT, Rapid KL’s bus and MRT feeder bus services.
Announced last November (2018) and launched in the beginning of January 2019, this concept was devised by the Pakatan Harapan government in a move to reduce living costs for the general public, which is one of their few initiatives aimed at establishing their manifesto promises. This initiative also hopes to lower corruption rates and increase public usage of transportation.
So far, the passes have been extremely popular, with a surge of over 30,000 subscribers within the first week of January alone!
You can get yourself the My50 or My100 pass at any LRT, MRT, Monorail, and BRT stations. For more information on this, you can visit the official FAQ page.
