Rapid KL deploys special shuttle buses to complement monorail service

PETALING JAYA: Rapid KL is now providing special monorail shuttle bus services until 10pm on weekdays starting Monday.

Rapid KL said in a statement on Sunday that the service will operate non-stop up to 10pm to complement the monorail service between Monday and Friday except for public holidays.

It is currently operating with only two-car train sets after its four-car trains were grounded due to safety reasons.

Operating from 7am, the special bus shuttle service will travel throughout the monorail alignment from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa with stops at all monorail stations at a frequency of between 15 minutes and 20 minutes, depending on traffic conditions.

However, the shuttle buses will not make stops at Tun Sambathan and Bukit Bintang stations on its return trip from Titiwangsa to KL Sentral due to the one-way street alignment in Brickfields and Bukit Bintang.

"We will have notices on the locations of these bus stops for the convenience of the commuters. Alternatively, commuters can refer to our staff at the Customer Service Offices for advice," it said.
