All RapidKL + KTM Rides Are FREE For 1 Month!
On 16 June 2022, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Ismail Sabri Yaakob officially launched the opening of Phase 1 of the MRT Putrajaya Line.
In conjunction with that launch, he announced that all RapidKL train and bus rides will be free of charge for a month, starting today.
KTM Komuter rides in the Klang Valley will also be free for an entire month, starting today.
From 16 June to 15 July 2022, you will be able to ride for free at all MRT, LRT, BRT (Bus Rapid Transit), monorail or RapidKL bus services, as well as KTM Komuter rides in the Klang Valley.
These free rides are subsidised by the Malaysian government, to the tune of RM155 million – RM140 million will go to RapidKL, while KTM will receive RM15 million.
The MRT Putrajaya Line, which is being developed in two phases, will serve about two million residents in the Klang Valley when it’s fully completed, running from Kwasa Damansara all the way to Putrajaya.
Phase 2 of the MRT Putrajaya line will pass through key areas in the KL city centre, with stations in Titiwangsa, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Ampang Park and the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX).
There will be 36 stations in total, including nine underground stations. But MRT Corp. plans to add another four stations to improve access to the MRT Putrajaya line.
The new Putrajaya is projected is expected to serve over 104,000 users a day when it’s fully completed. Hopefully, that will greatly alleviate traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur.
