KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has urged the public to experience for themselves the joy of travelling on the Mass Rapid Transit Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line which will be fully operational from Monday.
“The world-class public transportation system, the Sungai Buloh – Kajang MRT will be fully operational from 4pm on July 17, 2017 . Experience for yourself the sophistication of the MRT from Monday,” Najib said in his Facebook posting today.
Earlier, in his posting on Twitter, Najib uploaded the graphics of the schedule for the train and feeder buses which have been provided for the public who use the MRT.
The graphics show the train frequency for every 3.3 minutes during peak hours while the feeder buses ply the routes every 10 to 15 minutes.
“Previously, many people look for the train’s schedule to find out what time the trains arrive. Now, the modern MRT and feeder buses focus on frequency,” Najib said, with the hashtag #JomNaikMRT
Najib is scheduled to launch the second phase of the SBK line for the train, covering 51 kilometres, on Monday.
The second phase of the SBK line comprises 19 new stations with seven of them being underground.
Each train for the line has four coaches and can accommodate 1,200 passengers each journey, with an estimated 400,000 commuters each day. –Bernama
