The recent disruptions to the Kelana Jaya LRT line has led to chaos in the capital as daily commuters struggled to make their way to their intended destinations with the bus replacements.

Although Prasarana have since apologised and said that immediate action will be taken to solve the issue, it appears that ordinary Malaysians as well as politicians are unhappy and want those in management to step down immediately.

In an attempt to rectify the woes of the rakyat, RapidKL announced last night that they will be providing passengers affected by service disruptions free fares for each day of service disruption to Kelana Jaya Line LRT.

“This will be implemented after the service of the route is restored. Detailed information will be announced soon.”

In a statement released by them on their social media accounts, they also highlighted other measures that are being taken to help ease the issues.

Following the closure of 16 stations on the Kelana Jaya LRT Line, starting November 10, Rapid Bus will add 20 free intermediate buses to carry affected passengers, after Rapid Bus got cooperation from Smart Selangor and Mara Liner to provide 20 buses each under operation them,” they added.
