tasik selatan station

It was my first time ever to go to Tasik Selatan Station (last Friday) and I was there to fetch ney and darling. They took the KLIA transit and disembarked at this station.

Whilst waiting for them, I noticed that there was a long queue of people waiting to embark on a RapidKL bus. I have not been taking a bus for ages and apparently tickets are still being issued to passengers.

I noticed that passengers were scrambling for small change, hence the long wait.

Why can’t we adopt a system just like the one in Hong Kong?

Over there, they use “Octopus” card (like a touch n go card) and pay for their fares: be it on a bus, a ferry or even tram. They can even pay for food using the octopus card!

Talking about Touch n Go..whatever happens to plans to install “gantry”  points where motorists don’t have to stop or slow down their vehicles to “scan” their Touch n Go cards?

Oh yes. I forgot that Malaysia is a big country. So, it can’t be done (usually that’s the case)

  1. gor, there ARE touch’n’go systems onboard the rapidkl buses, and also lrt stations. yet a big majority of ppl still prefer to queue up forever and use cash… instead of just getting the card and going the quicker way
