Once you has purchase or reload on the bus, you dint have to touch card on the card reader again because the maximum fare of the route travelled is automatically deducted once the purchase or reload transaction is completed.

However, you are advised to reload your card with a minimum value that is equal to, or greater than the maximum fare of the route travelled. This will enable you to also use the RapidPass cards on the new bus ticketing system and please do inform the driver to activate or deactivate the ‘EZ’ function on your RapidPass.

  1. i have a few question need to ask :
    1) if i already have Touch n Go, do i still need to buy this card?
    2) is that the card only can use on rapid kl bus?
    3) this morning is my first time use touch n go on bus, bus number is U623. Normally from Kelana Jaya to Sunway is RM1, n back from Sunway to Kelana Jaya is RM2, total is RM3.
    But this morning when your staff try to help me touch my Touch n Go, i saw the system show out the balance is RM3, when i get down from the bus is no need to touch out, so what i feel is why use Touch n Go is so expensive then paid by cash? mean when i back from Sunway to Kelana Jaya also is deduce RM3 right? then total is RM6.
    can you explaine to me?

  2. Hi Phoebe,
    Let me help to answer your question:
    1) No, you can use normal touch n go card.
    2) Yes, you only can use touch n go card
    3) You need to tap when you get in the bus and tap when you get out from the bus. If you dont tap your card when you get out from the bus, then the system will deduct the highest fare for that particular route (U623 in ur case)

    hope it helps
