MALAYSIA: Public transport operator Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) and the operator of Kuala Lumpur’s airport rail link Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) have launched the enhanced KL TravelPass, an integrated transport ticket for rail travel network in Kuala Lumpur.

The KL TravelPass was developed to target the untapped inbound travellers visiting Kuala Lumpur, similar to the Oyster Card in London and Octopus Card in Hong Kong.

KL TravelPass is an integrated transport card that comes with a KLIA Ekspres airport transfer (available one-way or return) and 2-day unlimited rides on Rapid KL rail services (LRT, MRT and KL Monorail lines). The card is priced at RM70 for single trip and RM115 for return trips and is available for sale at KLIA Ekspres Ticket Counters in KLIA, KLIA2 and Departure Hall, KL Sentral.

Travelers also have the option to add cash value to the KL TravelPass to access extended benefits of travelling on Rapid KL buses and KTM Komuter rail services. ERL plans to further improve the KL TravelPass in the future by including other transport providers.

The collaboration between Prasarana and ERL was a result of a recent Ridership Workshop among rail operators to encourage the public to use the rail network and increase passenger ridership. The Government aims to achieve a 40% modal share on public transportation by 2030.
