Rapid KL City Shuttle
KL's new commuting trend in the heart of the city. Unlimited day travel for just RM2

For the T-bus I feel there should be a little increase due to the previous RM1 is a little to low for them to sustain.

However it was still fair due to their poor service and non-punctual service.

With the increment of RM1 per trip for T-bus. I would HIGHLY expect them to IMPROVE their service as the current service now is too terrible and I had few times experience waiting for 45minutes and longest was 1hr+ for the bus to move.

But I doubt that the service will be improved as the problem lies on the mentality of the people (drivers and management). I hope RapidKL can prove me wrong.

We need a mechanism here to see how can we ensure RapidKL bus will move on time as we frequently see them stopping the bus there for so long despite seeing many people waiting.

With every trip we see the driver stop and chit-chat then smoke etc.

Again I had one experience where my train reached Kelana Jaya LRT @ 11.20pm and I was eager to ride the last bus T622 which is scheduled last at 11.30pm, I rushed down and the bus has already moved.

I was told by the other bus driver that no more bus for T622. It was only by 11.20pm and even checking the LRT station's time was 11.23pm.... I eventually had to took a cab which charged me RM8 for a supposedly RM5 (meter) route.
The taxi driver knew I had no choice due to the last bus already departed so they took advantage on this.

My question is then how could the bus moved before reaching 11.30pm? They should adhere to the time.

Provide a mechanism to improve the service, I understand that ranting is of no use but perhaps we can have a discussion here on how can we suggest to the management since it is time for us to DEMAND as they have increased the fare now.

Then Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ) can be used for KL in order to reduce number of car within city area. London congestion charge is good example to be implement in Klang Valley.
What you suggest has been suggested long time ago.

If they want to implement this, they would first have to upgrade and improve the public transportation first.
