Beginning 1 January 2016, those taking the Express Rail Link (ERL) from KL Sentral to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA/ KLIA2) will have to pay RM55, which is RM20 more than the previous price, for a one-way ticket.
The price revision was approved by the Government through the Land Public Transport Commission in accordance with Section 120 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
According to a statement by ERL, the new rate is actually a discounted rate, as the authorised rate was set at RM64.
Nevertheless, ERL will work with its partners to find ways to offer attractive discounts. For instance, passengers are encouraged to buy their tickets online through the mobile app and from ERL’s kiosk as they could enjoy 10% off.
Touch ‘n Go card users could save 10% during promotional period and travellers could also save RM10 by purchasing return tickets.
This is the first price revision for ERL tickets since it commenced operations almost 14 years ago.
