Rapidpass Pelajar works on the Touch ‘n Go system. The only difference is that, the remaining number of days (of the 30-day usage period) will be displayed on the card reader. The 30-day period starts from the first day of usage each time the card is renewed.
Students can also opt for the EZ facility, whereby monthly renewals can be done automatically in the last week of the 30-day period, as long as the reload value in the card is sufficient. Rapidpass Pelajar can also function as a normal Touch ‘n Go card and can be reloaded at any Touch ‘n Go top-up counters or ATMs with the Touch ‘n Go reload facility.
To be eligible for Rapidpass Pelajar, users need to apply by bringing original and verified copies of their identity cards or birth certificates and student cards. The card is not transferable. RapidKL and Touch ‘n Go will also be setting up counters at various colleges and institutions of higher learnings from time to time.
Registration forms can also be acquired at any LRT stations and completed registration forms need to be submitted at the Pasar Seni LRT station. Monthly renewals can be done at all 48 LRT stations.
