KUALA LUMPUR: Monorail services have been temporarily suspended following two separate incidents.

In a statement on Monday, Rapid Rail Monorail Line said the service was suspended from 8.50am, Monday after two incidents involving its trains.

In the first incident, a rubber tyre of a four-car train caught fire at the Titiwangsa station, resulting in heavy smoke.

“No one was in the train,” said Rapid Rail Monorail Line chief operating officer Abdul Hadi Amran, noting that the Fire And Rescue Services Department had handled the incident.

In the second incident, a two-car train was stranded between the Imbi station and Bukit Bintang station due to technical problems, prompting the dispatch of a rescue train to push the stopped vehicle and clear the passengers.

The public transport provider is investigating both incidents, and has apologised to commuters for the inconvenience caused.
