KUALA LUMPUR, 10 July – More than 160,000 MyRapid cardholders have migrated to the new MyRapid Touch ‘n Go (MyRapid TnG) cards since the migration exercise was conducted by Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) on 15 June.
More than 40,000 of the total cards migrated comprised concession cards for students, senior citizens, and people with disabilities, Prasarana said in a statement here today. The migration to the new MyRapid TnG cards is to facilitate seamless travel on all Rapid KL networks including Phase Two of the MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line which would be opened on 17 July.
Phase Two of the MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line would integrate seamlessly with the LRT Kelana Jaya Line at Pasar Seni, and the LRT Sri Petaling/ Ampang Line at Maluri and Plaza Rakyat.
As the MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line ticketing system only accepts tokens and stored value cards under the Touch ‘n Go platform, MyRapid cardholders who enter the MRT system via the LRT networks would have a challenge exiting at the MRT stations.
As such, it is important for MyRapid cardholders to migrate their stored value cards to the new MyRapid Touch ‘n Go cards.
In facilitating the migration of the concession cards, Prasarana has opened additional migration centres at Subang Jaya and Awan Besar on 21 June; and Sri Rampai LRT station
on 30 June, in addition to the main centre at Pasar Seni bus hub.
Open daily, between 7am and 7pm, until this Saturday, the three additional MyRapid concession migration centres had allowed concession card holders to swiftly migrate their cards.
As senior citizens and people with disabilities are given priority at the three LRT stations during the migration process, it took them less than 15 minutes to complete the entire
The migration process of student concession cards took between 30 minutes and 90 minutes, depending on the crowd size.
Students are advised to plan their time when migrating their cards at the three LRT stations or the Pasar Seni Concession Card Centre. The staff or volunteers managing the information counter would share the estimated waiting time when the students collect their queue numbers.
While the migration of the concession cards are only allowed at the four centres, the exchange of the generic MyRapid card, which has a black background, could be done at the Customer Service Offices at most LRT, BRT, and monorail stations.
