Honestly I never heard of this.. the only thing I've seen is the driver rejecting ppl with tix from earlier timings from boarding the later buses, then ask them pay RM10 when the bus is about to leave if they want to get on
Most ppl llst pay the RM10 becuz the only alternative is pirate taxi which costs RM50 and you have to squeeze with 3 other ppl in a MPV which only takes you up to Awana Skyway.. still have to pay for cable car tix up to SkyAvenue
Not sure abt yr experience with the driver demanding RM10 - that's downright extortion without a receipt for the RM10 i guess. But my sharing here is based on personal experience coupled with validation with the rwg bus tix counter + driver + tix inspector prior to boarding....tat experience was last year end of Aug.
Fr Awana i took an earlier bus (which was supposedly fully booked) altho i hv a later trip tix on hand...anyway, since i was there earlier i checked with them and was allowed to board. For the return trip bck fr KL Sentral, i missed the bus by 5 mins but since i alrdy knew abt the flexibility, i din buy a new tix - just waited for the next bus and was allowed to board. So 2X experience - once boarding an earlier trip bus & another boarding a later trip bus.
But anyone wanting to take the risk must bear in mind that u still hv to pray hard there is an empty seat avail on that bus & not many ppl are in the waiting list Q...
