MELAKA: The Melaka Monorail service will begin operating again Monday, after being suspended since 2013 due to technical problems.

City mayor Datuk Zainal Abu said the service would operate from 10am to 10pm on weekdays, with extended service till midnight on weekends.

"Currently, only one coach which can accommodate up to 15 people will travel each round which will take 30 minutes," he said, adding that tickets would be sold at RM10 each.

The 1.6km line, built at a cost of RM16.5mil connects Taman Rempah to the Hang Tuah Station on Jalan Bunga Raya.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron had previously stated that the monorail is solely for recreational purposes. – Bernama
