According to BERNAMA, Prasarana Malaysia (Prasarana) Group chief operating officer Datin Norlia Noah said that the company had obtained permission from the Transport Ministry to reduce the frequency of trains based on demands following the huge drop in passenger flow.

In a statement on Sunday (25 October), Norlia said: “The LRT, MRT and Monorail services, however, will operate at the same time from 6 am to midnight. The change is only in frequency according to time and demand.”

The frequency for RapidKL bus services and the Jom Naik MRT shuttle buses will also be reduced, due to the same reason, “Rapid Bus will continue to monitor closely through the operation of the Bus Control Center. We also encourage commuters to use the Google Maps/Moovit app and check for themselves.”
