MyRapid PULSE app integration with AirAsia Ride for smoother journey and last mile connectivity


STARTING today, Rapid KL users in Kuala Lumpur will experience smoother journeys with the integration of the MyRapid PULSE Journey Planner App (PULSE) with AirAsia Ride e-hailing services.

This collaboration between Prasarana Malaysia Berhad and AirAsia MOVE, through their subsidiaries PRIDE and AirAsia Ride, aims to improve the overall travel experience for public transport users.

PRIDE CEO Fa’izah Khairuddin, expressed excitement about the collaboration, emphasising its potential to reshape how first and last-mile travel is approached.

“The collaboration between PULSE app as a journey planner and Airasia MOVE shall assist commuters to learn their journey at their fingertips, connecting the dots from home to MRT station and from station to their onward destination.

“The goal is to enhance efficiency and create a more integrated and seamless travel ecosystem.

“The strategic partnership allows Rapid KL users to book an AirAsia Ride through 24 major LRT stations using the PULSE app and as an added benefit, users will receive an exclusive RM2 rebate off their AirAsia Ride fares,” she said during the launch.

Fa’izah noted that the initiative aligned with the government’s vision to achieve a 40% public transportation modal share target by 2030, and aligned with the government’s ESG goals for fewer Carbondioxide (Co2) emissions.

Meanwhile, AirAsia MOVE CEO, Nadia Omer highlighted the value of the partnership.

“At AirAsia MOVE, we are all about connectivity by connecting people deeper but always at the best value possible, while giving them great options for airport transport as well as first and last mile connectivity where Prasarana plays a huge role,” she said

This partnership with AirAsia MOVE represents the initial phase of Prasarana’s plan to offer seamless connectivity for public transport users, with further studies and considerations for extending similar programs to other rail and bus networks in the future.

The list of stations and unique promo codes includes major stops on the Kelana Jaya Line and Ampang/Sri Petaling Line starting today until Jan 31 2025.

New and existing PULSE app users are eligible for the rebate, with up to two redemptions per day using a unique promotional code for first-mile last-mile journeys.
