The government will continue to offer the existing My30 unlimited travel pass for RapidKL, allowing the Malaysian public to go on enjoying unlimited rail and bus services from Prasarana for a month at the price of RM30. Additionally, the pass will also be expanded to public transport services in Pulau Pinang and Kuantan, with an allocation of RM300 million for the initiative.
The My30 unlimited travel pass was first introduced under the PENJANA economic recovery plan, and it allows passholders to travel on MRT, LRT, and Monorel trains as well as BRT, RapidKL, and MRT feeder buses without limitations. It was supposed to end on December 2020.
On top of the expanded My30 unlimited travel pass, the government is also introducing a new RM5 unlimited monthly travel pass for students in Standard 1 to Form 6, as well as the disabled. They can use this pass for the KTM Komuter service in Klang Valley, Komuter Utara, trains travelling between Bandar Kuala Lipis and Tumpat, as well as trains in Sabah (between Beaufort and Tenom).
Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz said that if the average cost for travelling is currently set at RM5 per day, this pass will enable them to save as they will soon only need to fork out RM5 per month.
