02 Dec 2015 / 15:45 H.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) announced today that its fares will be revised effective Jan 1 next year.
    This is the first revision since ERL commenced operations almost 14 years ago and was approved by the government in accordance with Section 120 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
    From Jan 1 next year, the fare will be increased from the current price of RM35 to the new price of RM55 for a one-way trip between KL Sentral and KLIA/klia2. This is a discounted rate as ERL has been authorised to revise the fare to RM64 based on the terms of the concession agreement.
    "We structured our new fares with our customers in mind. We recognise that the rising cost of living is a challenge, and are working on ways to make more fare options available to our passengers,"said Noormah Mohd Noor, CEO of ERL.
    Discounts up to 20% are available when using certain credit cards, and ERL is in discussion to expand the list.
    Passengers are also encouraged to buy their tickets online, through the mobile app, and from ERL's kiosks as they can enjoy 10% off.
    Users of the Touch 'n Go card will save 10% during the promotion period. Travellers can also save RM10 by purchasing return tickets between KL Sentral and the airport.
    For daily commuters on the KLIA Transit, a new 44-trip Monthly TravelCard will be offered to ensure they can commute to work daily, while keeping the increase to a minimum.

    TravelCard users will enjoy discounts of 17%- 83%, with an average discount of 45%. Senior citizens and disabled persons will continue to receive discounts of 30% on one-way fares on the KLIA Transit.
