I can’t help it but to smile…

“Pakai kad. Touch n Go. Kalau ada mykad tu boleh pakai”

I just brought out 2 RM1 notes from my pocket at that moment.

‘Oh?’ Was my only respons. Hastily I brought out my mykad and hand it over to the driver.

“Boleh top up. Lima ringgit boleh”

I brought out 5 pieces of RM1 notes.

“Lima ringgit yang sekeping. Ada? Satu ringgit satu ringgit tak boleh. Dia nak lima ringgit. Nak top up ni pakai mesin, leceh sikit”

‘Oh?’ My next respons. I search in my pocket and brought out RM10 notes.

“Kalau yang sepuluh ringgit pun boleh. Maih sini…. Ok, dah”

Then I took my mykad and touch the panel again…

“Eh! Sudah sudah. Dah kira”

‘Oh-k. Terima kasih’

Smiling, I took a sit not far from where I was standing for almost 5 minutes ago. Its a new lesson to me that the RapidKL bus in Shah Alam, at least the one that pass through Commuter Station, only accept TnG card as the payment method. What an improvement!!!

While riding towards the place I want to go, I started to think.

What a good system. It make it easy for the rider, as well as the driver. No conductor needed and there’s no chance for burglars to take advantage!

I paused, and a new thoughts came in…

However, not everyone knew about this. Not everyone have the idea of how to use TnG card, especially the elders. More over for those who rarely catch the bus (like me!), its not very convenient. Perhaps, at least they should accept RM1 one notes. After all, the fare is just RM2! To get a TnG card it cost one self at least RM20. On top of that, the amount which is stuck in the card can’t be withdraw back. Its a bit of a hustle to certain people…

To conclude, I seriously believe it is a good start to introduce a system that make it easy for everyone. Yet, the implementation should be done with consideration of many other aspects were taken. In a long term, a good system will survive and prosper. More importantly, awareness should be instilled among the society.

That’s my 2 cents
