Good news for LRT and monorail users, Prasarana is offering 50% discounts on the services between 6am and 7am from September 16.
According to a report by Bernama, Prasarana Group chief executive officer Datuk Azmi Abdul Aziz said the discount for cashless payments was introduced to reduce congestion at LRT and monorail stations during peak hours.
“Touch ‘n Go, MyRapid, MyRapid Smart 7, MyRapid Smart 30 users and concession card holders (students, senior citizens and the disabled) will enjoy this discount rate off the current fares.
