Good Start for the Public Transport Service


Rapid KL
RapidBET or Rapid Bus Express Transit system is a newly introduced public transport system in the Klang Valley. RapidBET is the first of the implementations carried out by the urban public transport laboratory under the National Key Result Areas (NKRAs). There are two routes for RapidBET, i.e. RapidBET1 from Kota Damansara to Pasar Seni via the Penchala and Kerinchi Links, and RapidBET2 from Bandar Sungai Long to Pasar Seni via the Grand Saga Highway.


Buses plying the RapidBET route uses less congested highways to link heavily populated areas and the city centre, allowing travel time to be cut by half.
