More shuttle buses will operate between the Sentul Timur and Bandaraya stations starting Monday (27 February) to accommodate commuters on the route.

Rapid Rail said in a statement that 15 shuttle buses will operate between both stations at a frequency of 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, the trains between Sentul Timur and Bandaraya stations will operate at a frequency of 24 minutes starting Monday.

The shuttle bus service which was reactivated last Thursday will stop at the following stations:

  • Sentul Timur
  • Sentul
  • Titiwangsa
  • PWTC
  • Sultan Ismail
  • Bandaraya

The route alternatives come in light of the structural and track damage near the Bandaraya station on 27 January.

The affected track showed signs of cracking and the cause for the cracks was believed to be due to the construction works near the area.

The damaged tracks also meant that five trains that were previously used between the Sentul Timur and Bandaraya stations could not return to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) depot in Ampang for maintenance work. These trains had to be removed for safety purposes but two are left in operation.

The remaining two trains will operate alternately starting Monday to ensure commuters still get to use the route and avoid fully closing both the Sentul Timur and Bandaraya stations.

Rapid Rail apologises for any inconvenience caused during that period and will continue to take appropriate steps to facilitate passenger movement.
