Rapid Rail announced that the LRT Kelana Jaya Line is back in service two days earlier than scheduled, starting at 6 am on Monday, 14th November. The service was disrupted by the closure of as many as 16 stations along the line since 9th November. It was scheduled to fully operate again on 16th November.
The company also stated that it would compensate all users for seven-day free rides. Rapid Rail mentioned free fares to KJ Line users every day of the service disruption. Even though the service has been suspended for five days, KJ Line users are given free travel for seven days.
It will apply to users utilising the Kelana Jaya Line, be it My50 pass holders and those using cash (tokens) or Touch’ n Go cards.
Here are the specifications on how the free travel will apply:
My50 pass holders
Any My50 holders will be given additional free travel for seven days when renewing their My50 pass after expiry. My50 monthly pass can be renewed from 21st November to 20th December 2022. Simply go to any customer service office at LRT, MRT, Monorail and BRT stations to let the customer service officer validate the free travel days.
My50 users with passes expiring between Monday, 14th November to Sunday, 20th November, can use their passes as usual without any charge. All you must do is ensure that at least RM5 is stored in the pass.
Touch’ n Go card users
Touch’ n Go holders can use their card on the KJ Line without any charge between Monday, 14th November to Sunday, 20th November, provided that their travel’s start or end destination is at any KL Line station. TnG users are advised to make sure that at least RM5 is available on the card.
Payment by cash for one-way travel
Lastly, all users using cash to purchase tokens for travel on the KJ Line will enjoy free fare from Monday, 14th November, to Sunday, 20th November. Go to the customer service office at any LRT, MRT, Monorail or BRT station to acquire a special one-way travel token, provided that the start or end destination is at any station on the Kelana Jaya Line.
