Extended peak operating hours for Ampang, Sri Petaling LRT lines, KL Monorail from Jan 30

KUALA LUMPUR: Peak hour services for the Light Rail Transit (LRT) on the Ampang and Sri Petaling lines and the Kuala Lumpur Monorail will be extended beginning on Monday (Jan 30), following service disruptions between the the Bandaraya and Masjid Jamek LRT stations due to a track alignment problem.

In a statement on Sunday (Jan 29), Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) said the peak hour services would be extended from 6am to 10.30am and 4.30pm to 8.30pm compared to the previous schedule of 7am to 9.30am and 5pm to 7.30pm respectively.

"Extending the peak operating hours is to provide convenience and comfort to commuters, and so that they can plan their journey in advance to reduce congestion at several rail stations, particularly at the Masjid Jamek LRT interchange and the Hang Tuah LRT station," read the statement.

It also said that more intermediate free buses would be added beginning on Monday for three routes with a frequency of 10 minutes, depending on the traffic situation.

The three routes are LRT route 9 involving Hang Tuah LRT-Bandaraya LRT-Hang Tuah LRT (15 buses); LRT route 10 involving Masjid Jamek LRT-Bandaraya LRT-Masjid Jamek LRT (nine buses); and LRT route 11, namely East Sentul LRT-Bandaraya LRT-East Sentul LRT station (10 buses).

"Prasarana apologises for the inconvenience experienced by passengers and greatly appreciates their support and patience.

"This initiative is our commitment to ensure the quality of service provided to users is always at the best level," added the statement. - Bernama
