Public transportation services under the administration of RapidKL will be provided for free for a month beginning today, in conjunction with the launch of Phase One of the Putrajaya MRT line.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said these comprise the MRT, LRT, BRT, monorail and RapidKL bus services.
Speaking at the event launch in Kuala Lumpur today, he said the full opening of the Putrajaya MRT line was expected to see an initial daily passenger count of over 104,000 people.
He said Phase One alone was expected to trigger and revive development along the route.
“The Putrajaya MRT line will continue to work as a catalyst for strengthening the ties between communities, especially those living nearby,” he said.
“It will also be easier for the people to move to and fro from their workplace, and socialise and access other public facilities.
“Through the opening of this route, the government is confident that areas along the line such as Jinjang, Sungai Buloh, Kepong and Bandar Sri Damansara will develop more rapidly, on par with areas in other cities.”
