Prasarana has announced that there will be extended monorail and LRT services for the upcoming Malaysia-Singapore football match.
Extended LRT and monorail services for football matchKUALA LUMPUR: RapidKL will be extending the operation hours of all its rail services in anticipation of an expected increased in traffic for the second leg World Cup qualifying clash between Malaysia and Singapore tomorrow.
Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) media manager Azhar Ghazali said the LRT Ampang line, which runs directly to Bukit Jalil, will be extending its services until 12.30am while the LRT Kelana Jaya line and the KL Monorail will be extended until 1am.
The extension for the Kelana Jaya line, however, is only for entry at Masjid Jamek. For KL Monorail, it would be for entry at Hang Tuah station.
Azhar said that under normal operations, the rail services would conclude at 11.45pm.
Prasarana is the operator of LRT, KL Monorail and RapidKL bus services.
Azhar also advised fans to purchase return journey tickets to avoid long queues after the match.
“We will be opening special counters to sell return journey tickets from 3pm on Thursday at our interchange stations at Masjid Jamek, Hang Tuah and Bandar Tasek Selatan,” he said. — Bernama
No word about extended bus services, though we know that buses could be used to speed people back to their destinations in a service similar to the Expressway Rapid Transit. Wouldn’t that help to discourage people from driving to Bukit Jalil? Especially when they may already be worried that the LRT & Monorail may be crowded – and accessing the services possibly inconvenient.
