RapidKL's City Shuttle for RM2 Daily

RapidKL City Shuttle Route
RapidKL have launched a new service called City Shuttle, serving 15 routes and 5 hubs with 138 buses. They promised 5 minutes frequency buses. So you can hop on and hop off a bus anywhere within KL City area bounded by Jalan Tun Razak for just RM2 per day. Isn’t that a good bargain? I did try them out last Sunday when it was free. 😉

  • Beginning their rounds – The Star Metro Central 14 Jan 2006 – “Commuters will only need to wait for five minutes for the shuttle buses that will run between five hubs – KL Sentral, Titiwangsa, Maluri, KLCC and Medan Pasar … There are 15 City Shuttle routes serving major roads in the city centre … They will have to pay RM2 for a daily pass that allows them to hop on and off buses for the entire day.”
  • Better bus service with city shuttle – The Star Metro Central 13 Jan 2006 – “… the City Shuttle Service was part of Rapid KL’s efforts to provide an integrated public service system within the city and the Klang Valley … would be complemented with the introduction of the services of the Trunk-Line and LocalShuttle services by June.”
  • RapidKL promises lower bus fares, faster rides – New Straits Times 9 Jan 2006 – “Commuters can expect to save up to a third on return bus fares, and cut travel time by the same amount, said [RapidKL] … There is a catch: Commuters may have to change buses more often once the Klang Valley’s transport services are fully integrated five months from now. The trade-off will benefit them … ‘To provide better service, we have cut the routes into three sections — city centre, local shuttle and trunk line,’ said Westra [RapidKL’s CEO] at a briefing today.”
  • RapidKL’s City Shuttle Detailed Maps – includes links (click on the route numbers) to stops details for each route. The same info is on their free single sheet folded brochures.

    That particular map was from The Star Metro Central 14 Jan 2006 article. I believe RapidKL’s paper brochure with the map is more readable. If you really want, I think I can get a photo of said map posted.

  3. The map is available here darling. Click on the numbers to see their detailed routes.
