In an effort to reduce the Kuala Lumpur buses travel time to Kuala Lumpur, the Ministry of Transport had launched the Bus Expressway Transit or BET that goes to Pasar Seni from selected towns of Klang Valley. The duration of travel to the city is shortened by using expressways and hence more commuters will be able to take buses to work.
This programme was launched under the Government Transformation Programme or GTP that strives to improve urban public transport where the buses will use highways or expressways to link heavily populated areas and the city centre instead of the normal congested trunk roads.
There are currently nine BETs in operations. These buses use expressways such as KESAS, Kerinchi – Penchala Link, NPE and PLUS to shorten the time taken to reach Kuala Lumpur. Almost all the buses stop at Pasar Seni where you can proceed to your next destination by taking LRT, taxi or other buses.
To cater for the working people, the buses start from 6:30am and 7:00am. The journey back from Pasar Seni starts from 5:30pm and 6:00pm. For further information of the schedule, call RapidKL Helpline at Tel: +6 03 7885 2585 from 7am to 8:30pm (Monday-Friday) and 8:30am to 5:30pm (Sat-Sunday).
