SPAD ENCOURAGES PUBLIC TO PLAN EARLY AND USE LAND PUBLIC TRANSPORT FOR UPCOMING SEA GAMES AND ASEAN PARA GAMES

Kuala Lumpur, 7 August 2017 – Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD) encourages members of the public to use land public transport to travel to the upcoming 29th SEA Games and the 9th ASEAN Para Games 2017 held respectively from 14 to 30 August and 17 to 23 September 2017.

Spectators can expect partial or full road closures during the opening and closing ceremony of this large scaled event which will host athletes, volunteers and officials from 11 South East Asian countries at the KL Sports City (Bukit Jalil National Stadium).  In view of this, SPAD in cooperation with operators such as Prasarana and KTMB will extend the operational hours of rail services to ensure that spectators attending the opening and closing ceremony will have adequate access to the KL Sports City (Bukit Jalil National Stadium) via land public transport services.

To support the opening and closing ceremony, the operating hours of the LRT Sri Petaling Line at Bukit Jalil station will be extended to 1am and 2am respectively. Commuters heading out from the Bukit Jalil station will be able to transfer to all Rapid Rail services including (LRT Ampang, LRT Kelana Jaya Line, MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang, Monorail) to head to their respective destinations. However, it is important to note that these stations will only allow commuters to exit/disembark. Meanwhile KTM Komuter services will also offer extended services for both opening and closing, with details to be announced soon.

Complimenting this, will be a total of 60 direct special bus service which will be made available by Prasarana’s RapidKL at frequency of every 10-15 minutes, from 7 departure points to Bukit Jalil Stadium and vice versa. For easy identification, the electronic destination board of these bus buses will display “KL SEA Games 2017”. Listed below are further details of the dedicated shuttle bus services:
