The construction for the the country’s first mass rapid transit (MRT) system is nearing completion, and Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd, which will be operating the services of Sungai Buloh – Kajang MRT, has released the fare structure for it.
The cheapest fare has been revealed to be RM1.10, for a ride between Merdeka and Pasar Seni stations; while the most costliest ride will be from the terminal stations of Sungai Buloh and Kajang, which is a total of 31 stations and spans 51 kilometres.
However, there are different prices for token purchases and a stored value card (Touch N’ Go, My Rapid Card), which carries a difference of up to 90 cents.
In a media statement, Rapid Rail also stated:
“The fare structure has been approved by the Government and is based on the nominal flag fall and cascading rates for every 4 to 5 kilometres travelled – similar with the fare structure of the LRT and monorail services operated by Rapid Rail, a subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad.”
Also, the discounts applied to students, senior citizens, and OKU, which is 50% off the usual fare, will be brought forward to the MRT too.
Full list of fares are as below:
Phase 1 or MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang line, which covers the stations of Sungai Buloh to Semantan, is scheduled to begin operations from 16th December; while phase 2, spanning from Semantan to Kajang, is expected to be operational next July.
