My50 unlimited travel pass to continue, has over 200,000 monthly subscribers in Klang Valley

KUALA LUMPUR: The My50 travel pass has gained significant popularity, boasting around 200,000 monthly subscribers in the Klang Valley.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the initiative emphasises the government's commitment to easing the burden on citizens in its bid to encourage public transportation usage.

"There are various other initiatives that we can implement, but we don't want to burden the people.

"We aim to provide attractive options to capture their attention and promote the use of public transportation," he said after officiating the DAP annual convention at the party's headquarters, here.

The My50 travel pass offers subsidies for public transport in Kuala Lumpur, allowing residents to access services like MRT, monorail, LRT, and BRT under the Rapid KL network for only RM50 per month.

"No other country provides such high subsidies for public transportation, making it an affordable option for citizens.

"Imagine that for less than two ringgit a day, you can use any type of public transport in Kuala Lumpur."

From around 120,000 subscribers at the beginning of this year, we now have 200,000 city dwellers subscribing to My50 every month, he said.

To accommodate the increasing demand, the allocation for the My50 programme for the upcoming year has been raised from RM115 million to RM200 million.

Loke affirmed that the expenses and initiatives for the My50 travel pass will continue, and the subscription fee will remain a fixed RM 50, equivalent to just RM1.70 per day.

"It is an extremely worthwhile investment, and we hope more city residents will take advantage of it.

"The increased interest can be attributed to the opening of an additional route in March, connecting Kepong to Putrajaya via the MRT system," Loke added.
