KUALA LUMPUR: The My30 unlimited travel pass will continue into 2021 and will also be expanded beyond the Klang Valley to Penang and Kuantan.
In the Budget 2021 announcement yesterday, an allocation of RM300mil will allow commuters unlimited use of bus and rail services provided by Prasarana Malaysia Bhd (under the Rapid brand) as well as KTMB for only RM30 a month.
My30 was first announced in June 15 to recover lost ridership in the Klang Valley following the severe impact brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and was supposed to run until Dec 31 this year.
At the moment, Prasarana has an unlimited travel pass in Penang branded as Mutiara Pass that costs RM50 a month.
Pensioner Joseph Cheah, 62, who has a car, regularly uses his Mutiara Pass to board the bus from Tanjung Bungah to Campbell Street in George Town.
