Red tokens for senior citizens using RapidKL

KUALA LUMPUR: RapidKL is introducing red-coloured tokens for senior citizens that will allow them to enjoy a concession fare or 50% discount tickets on the LRT.
Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad group director for rail division Khairani Mohamed said commuters aged 60 and above could also travel with a 50% discount on the KL Monorail from tomorrow.
“These single-journey red tokens can also be bought and used by the disabled. The purchase can only be made at our ticketing counters at the LRT stations.
“Similarly, for the monorail service, the 50% discount tickets are to be bought at the ticket counters,” he said in a statement.
The ticket vending machines at the LRT stations will only issue normal tickets, which are blue.
Senior citizens are advised to use their RapidKL Senior Citizen Card for more convenience in their travelling, skipping the need to queue to buy the token each time they want to take the LRT or Monorail.
“Those who have yet to get a card can go to the Pasar Seni LRT station to apply for free card,” said Khairani.
“They need to bring their MyKad and a photocopy of it, and also a complete registration form to the counter at the Pasar Seni station.
“As for the disabled, they need to show OKU cards issued by the Welfare Services Department.”
Khairani said the concession fare was in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s an­­nouncement on Budget Day in October that senior citizens would be accorded a 50% discount on the LRT and monorail tickets and the concession fare also extended to the disabled. — Bernama
