Najib: MRT, LRT and monorail fares to be 50% off until Merdeka

PETALING JAYA: Commuters using the MRT, LRT and monorail lines will enjoy a 50% discount starting Tuesday, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.  

Najib added that those using the lines would be able to enjoy the discount right up to Merdeka Day on Aug 31.  

He made the announcement when launching the 51km Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line, which he said would transform public transport in Kuala Lumpur. 

"With the integration of the MRT system with KTM Komuter, the LRT and the Monorail, residents of the Klang Valley and Greater Kuala Lumpur will be able to enjoy a more efficient, quicker system," said Najib in a Facebook post on Monday. 

He said a person from Kajang could be in Bukit Bintang in 33 minutes using the MRT, adding that the ride would only cost RM3.80.

"I hope that more will choose public transport to reduce traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur," said Najib.
