From today (Monday, 15th May) onwards, additional shuttle buses will be provided at several stations to assist the public.
According to Rapid KL, the shuttle buses for additional travel options will be made available during the morning and evening peak hours. This move is expected to offer convenience to those traveling to and from work.
“We will deploy shuttle buses at intervals of between 7 and 15 minutes at several busy stations between 7am and 9am, and between 5pm and 7pm,” said Rapid Rail chief executive officer, Datuk Ir. Zohari Sulaiman.
The selected monorail stations are as follows:
- Between KL Sentral Monorail Station (in front of Nu Sentral) and the Raja Chulan Monorail Station
- Between Chow Kit Monorail Station and Bukit Bintang (in front of Sungei Wang Plaza)
- Between Hang Tuah Monorail Station (under the Monorail Station, towards Jalan Imbi) and Raja Chulan Monorail Station
“A nominal fare of RM1 would be charged, except at the Hang Tuah integrated station for customers travelling from the Sri Petaling/ Ampang Lines. The fare for these customers would be waived,” Zohari was quoted as saying in a media statement.
He added, “In addition to the shuttle bus services, commuters could also opt for the Go KL free bus services, particularly the Go KL Blue Line, between Chow Kit and Bukit Bintang, and the Go KL Green Line between KLCC and Bukit Nanas.”
