New RapidKL Bus Fares from 1st of September 2009. Instead of the usual flat rate or RM2 per day, RapidKL has adopted zoning system for its bus fares and payment is now per trip basis. It was back to their old per trip and zoning system. RapidKL has to change to this style of pricing to meet with rising cost. By doing so the daily commuters will end up paying more but they can minimize by purchasing monthly pass.

So for the Kuala Lumpur Tourism travelers who would like to plan for their travel budget, here’s the low down on the rates:
