KUALA LUMPUR – The public transport users will be able to enjoy the various amenities prepared by the government through the public transport operators.
The Minister of Transport Anthony Loke Siew Fook said, among the services include, cashless tickets.
He said, he had his experience using the KLIA Transit from Putrajaya to KL Sentral using the cashless payment mode at the entrance.
“The cashless payment mode can be made through the ERL smartcard, Touch n Go, Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay at the entrance.
“As an alternative, the public can purchase the KLIA Express or KLIA Transit tickets at the counter, or pay it through mobile applications such as Boost, GrabPay and soon, it will be available through Maybank QRPay.
“I would like to congratulate all companies on this joint-success. It is an extremely good example for the private sector initiatives in supporting the government’s objectives,” he said during the Go Cashless on Public Transport Campaign Launch at KL Sentral.
According to Loke Siew Fook, the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government is generally satisfied with the ERL train services which has been operating for about 17 years.
He said, within that period, the service which provides return transfers between KL Sentral and KLIA has become the best transport and is important for many people.
“They have shown good achievements by maintaining the highest standards in managing resources, utilising energy and technology.
“They have also won many awards on safety features and customer services, marketing initiatives and their commitments towards the environment,” he said.
He also said, the utilisation of technology innovation as an effort to improve ticketing system is another way for ERL to ensure that the service fulfils the needs of the customers. -MalaysiaGazette
