Rapid KL introduces LRT “Skip, Stop, Xpress” to ease morning crowd

The Government of Malaysia had just announced that the Movement Control Order (MCO) in the capital will be converted to the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) starting 5 March 2021 and all business activity will be allowed to operate.

Upon hearing this, the first thing that comes into our minds is the traffic. Oh no! Traffic on the road, public transport and even the commuters. The morning crowd of people rushing for work is back.

Here’s a good news for those who commute to work with LRT Kelana Jaya line. Rapid KL had just announced a new express rail service to help reduce the waiting time of passengers of this rail line.

The new service is called “Skip,Stop,Xpress” and it is introduced to ease the crowd on Kelana Jaya Line during the morning rush. In the direction towards Ampang Park, the train now stops at only 4 stations, Gombak, Wangsa Maju, Setiawangsa and Ampang Park.

How does it work?

A Skip,Stop,Xpress train will depart from Gombak station at 8 a.m. sharp and will be heading to Wangsa Maju station without stopping at the stations in between. The train will then proceed to Setiawangsa and Ampang Park Station.

What happens if you are getting up the train from these stations other than the 4? The train that departs from Ampang Park and heading towards Gombak will be operating as usual.

Ultimately, it meant that you’ll need to board the train from the opposite rail to get back to your preferred station.

What if you forget to get off at your designated station? Unfortunately, you’ll need to stay in the train until it reaches the next station and you’ll need to board the train from the opposite rail back to 1 of the 4 stations.

This arrangement does brings convenience to those who are rushing for work in the morning. However, if you are stopping at those unpopular stations, it might bring you some inconvenience.

This service is only available on weekdays during peak hours and the commuting service will operate as normal during the weekends or public holiday.
