Touch ‘n Go

A Touch ‘n Go card is a musthave if you’re plan­ning to be a fre­quent user of pub­lic trans­port, par­tic­u­larly in the Klang Val­ley. It’s a cash­less pay­ment card that can be used on: - Light Rail Tran­sit (LRT) lines - KTM Ko­muter - KL Mono­rail - MRT Sun­gai Bu­loh-ka­jang - BRT Sun­way Line - Rapidkl buses - KLIA Ex­press - Air­port coach (KLIA and Nu Sentral only) - Panorama Me­laka To en­cour­age more peo­ple to use the Touch ‘n Go card, you pay less when you use it for pub­lic trans­port. They can be pur­chased from sales coun­ters, self-ser­vice kiosks and ded­i­cated hubs, usu­ally found in most ma­jor malls, petrol sta­tions on high­ways and some Bank Ne­gara Malaysia branches.

Smart Travel Prod­ucts

If you’re a mod­er­ate to heavy com­muter, con­sider get­ting a weekly or monthly pack­age on your Touch ‘n Go card for more sav­ings. Even if it’s RM0.50 per trip, that can add up quickly if you travel of­ten.

The Myrapid Smart 7 Weekly is a pack­age with a RM2.50 weekly sub­scrip­tion fee that gives you ac­cess to re­duced fees on rail lines and the BRT Sun­way Line. The Myrapid Smart 30 Monthly is the same pack­age with even cheaper fees, but the RM10 monthly sub­scrip­tion fee means you have to be a fre­quent trav­eller to ben­e­fit from the sav­ings.

Malaysian se­nior cit­i­zens over 60, peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and all stu­dents can ap­ply for con­ces­sion cards.
