Use Touch ‘n Go card at Taman Paramount LRT Station Car Park from 5th October 2009 (info)
Petaling Jaya, 01 October 2009:
Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (RapidKL) will be testing the Touch ‘n Go payment system at the Taman
Paramount LRT Station beginning the 5th of October 2009. Customers have to use the Touch ‘n Go card to pay the parking charges, then use the same card when boarding RapidKL’s LRT or bus.
Upon returning to the car park and while exiting, they have to use the same card again whereby only a maximum of RM 3 a day is charged.
If the customers only use the Touch ‘n Go card for paying parking charges and avoid the using of the card for the payment of RapidKL’s LRT or bus fares, customers shall be charged RM 2 for the first one hour and RM 1 per one hour for the following hours.
The payment system is on trial for a period of three months. The success of this test shall see the implementation of the same system at the other LRT stations.
Taman Paramount LRT Station has 86 parking bays.
Customers are able to purchase the Touch ‘n Go cards at selected LRT stations namely Kelana Jaya, Taman Paramount, Taman Jaya, Kerinchi, Bangsar, KL Sentral, Pasar Seni, Masjid Jamek (both Kelana Jaya and Ampang Line), Dang Wangi, KLCC, Ampang Park, Setiawangsa, Wangsa Maju, Gombak, Ampang, Bandar Tasik Selatan and Sri Petaling.
The cards are also available at selected fuel stations and agents. Selected sales centres found at Expressways and Touch ‘n Go sales centres located at the Faber Towers, Taman Desa (Off Jalan Klang Lama) and in KL Sentral are some of the other options for obtaining the Touch ‘n Go cards.
RapidKL and Touch ‘n Go Sdn. Bhd., are jointly having this promotional campaign for the users at Taman Paramount LRT since the 24th of September 2009 to create awareness regarding the implementation of the system.
