PETALING JAYA: There will be no more social distancing measures on Rapid KL trains and stations come June 10 in line with the recovery movement control order (MCO), says Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd.
Its chief operating officer Abdul Hadi Amran said the standard operating procedures (SOPs) by the Transport Ministry allowed a 100% capacity of passengers on all rail services, except ETS and KTM Intercity.
"Starting June 10 under the recovery MCO, the LRT Kelana Jaya line, LRT Ampang/Sri Petaling, MRT Sungai Buloh - Kajang line and Monorail line, which are managed by Rapid KL, will end the social distancing rules onboard the trains.
"Social distancing markers in the trains and stations have already been removed," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 9).
Rapid Rail is expected to be able to increase the number of passengers back to 750,000 daily, as compared to 200,000 daily under the conditional MCO.
However, safety and health procedures such as body temperature checks on staff and passengers, compulsory wearing of face masks and usage of hand sanitiser will continue to be in place, said Abdul Hadi.
Cashless transactions such as monthly passes or Touch N Go are encouraged, said Abdul Hadi, adding that passengers are also encouraged to download the MySejahtera app.
"Disinfection and cleaning activities at stations and trains will continue to be done frequently.
"We thank our passengers and together, let us practice this new normal in our lives to go through the Covid-19 recovery period safely and successfully," he added.
