Prasarana: Train and bus frequency in Klang Valley to be reduced Monday (Oct 26) until conditional MCO ends

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The frequency of LRT, MRT and monorail trains will be reduced from Monday (Oct 26) until enforcement of the conditional movement control order (MCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is lifted.

Prasarana Malaysia group chief operating officer Datin Norlia Noah said the company had obtained permission from the Transport Ministry to reduce the frequency of trains based on demand following the huge drop in passenger flow due to the conditional MCO.

"LRT, MRT and Monorail services, however, will operate at the same time from 6am to midnight. The change is only in frequency according to time and demand,” she said in a statement on Sunday (Oct 25).

She said the frequency of trains during peak hours from 7am to 9am and 5pm to 7pm for the Ampang/Sri Petaling LRT Line is 2.8 minutes, Kelana Jaya LRT Line (3.5 minutes), Monorail Line (6.2 minutes) and MRT Kajang Line(four minutes).

The service for off-peak hours, which is between 9am to 5pm and 7pm to 10pm, for the Ampang/Sri Petaling LRT Line is 5.8 minutes, Kelana Jaya LRT Line (9.3 minutes and 5.6 minutes), Monorail Line (8.2 minutes ) and MRT Kajang Line (9.9 minutes).

"The frequency that has been set, however, is just a guide. The operation of trains on all routes is closely monitored by the operations control centre, which is authorised to add trains if required when there is increase in demand," she said.

Norlia said the frequency of Rapid KL bus service and the Jom Naik MRT shuttle bus would also be reduced.

"Rapid Bus, however, will continue to monitor closely.

“We also encourage commuters to use the Google Maps or Moovit app as well as to enable them to plan their commute better, " she added. – Bernama
