MRT Putrajaya Line free rides also include transfers to and from existing MRT, LRT, and BRT lines at interchange stations, but journeys must involve the MRT Putrajaya Line either at entrance or exit. Connecting stations such as Ampang Park will only count the MRT Putrajaya Line sector as free of charge, as separate fares are charged on separate lines when tapping out and tapping in again.

MRT Putrajaya Line customers who use My50 passes can make a new renewal (30+15 days) at any MRT Putrajaya Line counter after the customer’s My50 pass expires between April 1 and April 30, 2023. Customers need to use the existing My50 pass until the pass expires and need to renew the My50 pass no later than 30 April 2023 to get 30+15 days of unlimited travel by paying only RM50.00. You will still be charged RM0.50 for each Touch ‘n Go top-up for your My50 pass renewal. Customers need to ensure a minimum balance value of RM5.00 is maintained in the My50 pass / Concession Card / Touch ‘n Go Card before using the free MRT Putrajaya Line.
