For those commuting by public transport, do ensure you have a face mask on and sanitise your hands frequently. Since waiting time is expected to be an issue, passengers are advised to plan ahead to avoid large crowds.
Those with expired monthly passes can proceed to renew at selected LRT, MRT, BRT and Monorail counters. Rapid KL also shared that passengers will receive an extra 15 days when you renew your My100 or My50 pass.
For those that don’t know the difference, the My100 (priced at RM100) pass allows the user unlimited amount of rides on trains and buses for 30 days. The My50 (priced at RM50) pass allows the user unlimited amount of bus rides only for 30 days.
