Rapid KL apologises over 'open door' incident of LRT Kelana Jaya line train

PETALING JAYA: Rapid KL has apologised over the incident where the doors of an LRT Kelana Jaya line train had remained open during operations after its departure from LRT Ara Damansara Station heading towards LRT Lembah Subang Station.

It said that the incident that happened around 3.01pm yesterday (July 26) was discovered immediately by the Operations Control Centre.

The train, Rapid KL said, was then taken out of service less than two minutes later when it reached the LRT Lembah Subang Station that is located about 900 metres away from LRT Ara Damansara Station.

"Rapid KL takes this incident very seriously and a detailed investigation is taking place to identify the cause.

"Appropriate mitigation plans will be implemented to avoid future occurrence," it said on its Facebook page today (July 27).

Rapid KL added that there were seven passengers on board the train during the incident, and all were evacuated safely.
