MRT fare starts at RM1


PETALING JAYA: Commuters can travel from as low as RM1 based on the cashless fare structure, once the first phase of MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (MRT SBK) is operational by next month.

Via its press release on Tuesday, Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd which will be operating the services of MRT SBK, announced MRT SBK’s full fare structure. The lowest single stop fare based on the cash fare structure is RM1.10, between the Pasar Seni and Merdeka stations.

MRT SBK which spans about 51 kilometres and across 31 stations, will be opened to public in two phases. Phase 1 of MRT SBK is expected to be operational from 16 December 2016, covering 12 stations between Sungai Buloh and Semantan. Phase 2 of MRT SBK, covering the remaining 19 stations between Semantan and Kajang, is scheduled for operations next July.

The maximum fare will be RM6.40 based on the cash fare structure, and RM5.50 based on the cashless fare structure. The fare structure has been approved by the government and is based on the nominal flag fall and cascading rates for every four to five kilometres travelled, similar with the fare structure of the LRT and monorail services.

“Similar to the practice in the Rapid KL LRT, monorail, and bus services, we would extend 50% discount on the cash fare to senior citizens, students, and people with disabilities (OKU) who travel on the MRT and the MRT feeder bus services.

“Children below seven travel for free,” said Rapid Rail CEO Datuk Ir Zohari Sulaiman.

The nominal fare for the MRT feeder bus services is set at RM1 per trip, with 120 MRT feeder buses covering 26 routes linked to all 12 MRT stations opened under Phase 1 next month.

Full details on the MRT fare structure will be available at Rapid KL’s official website at www.myrapid.com.my
