The Kuala Lumpur Mini Bus service or Mini Bus was one of the oldest and most popular public transport in Malaysia, covering the Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley areas. The buses were painted in a pink base color with white stripes on the sides, and can carry around 20-30 passengers, due to their small size. The buses operated based on a commission system, with service operators paid according to the amount of fare collected. Mini Bus was also originally owned by the company Akar Holdings Sdn. Bhd.
The minibus service started on 23 September 1975 under the Ministry of Transport. At that time, minibuses operated on various routes, up to sixty different routes, according to their respective bus colors (blue-white, yellow-white, red-white, purple-white and dark green-white). In 1990, the Deputy Minister of Transport, Datuk Paduka Rahmah Osman, set the standard colors of minibuses to be "pink" and white. The minibus service was discontinued on 1 July 1998 and replaced by the Intrakota bus service and later, the RapidKL Bus in 2005.
