The issue with the frequency of the LRT trains have proven to be a huge problem ever since Malaysians have returned back to offices and the normalcy after the 2 year restrictions due to Covid-19.

However, it appears that it’s something we’re going to have to get used to for a while longer.

In a statement released on its social media pages, Rapid KL revealed that train frequencies for the LRT Kelana Jaya line are only expected to return to 3 minutes by September 2023.

The major reason behind the delay is because it is currently waiting for the delivery of certain spare parts to repair trains that are not functioning.

“The Rapid Rail service which includes the entire range of LRT, MRT and Monorail is currently undergoing improvements to improve service quality for the convenience and comfort of users.”

The statement said that the Kelana Jaya Line LRT is now operating with a frequency of 5 minutes during peak hours and 7 minutes during off-peak hours on weekdays.

“For safety reasons, only trains that pass the operational qualification test will be used in the service. The limited number of trains has indirectly caused a reduction in the frequency of trains in the morning and evening peak hours,” they explained.



They also said that the limited number of trains is due to the lack of spare parts such as ‘tachometers’ which are very necessary to ensure that trains can operate safely.

“The ‘Tachometer’ located on the train wheel is a device that sends information to the train control system to control the speed, position and direction of the train,” said Rapid KL.

The Ministry of Transport previously said it was targeting 3-minute intervals by November 2022.


A whole year delay?

The announcement by Rapid KL has not gone down well amongst Malaysians who criticised them for taking too long to sort out the issue when its been an issue for quite a while now.

“By the time it’s September 2023, I’ve been fired for arriving at the office late every day.”

“We have to deal this for another year,” commented a user.

Some netizens wondered where are they getting the spare parts from that it would take them a year.

“Are they importing the spare parts from the second cloud or what,” said a user.
