Loke: Govt focused on reducing RTS fare

KUALA LUMPUR (July 16): Lowering the ticket fare is among the Government’s aims in reviewing better terms for the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link (RTS) project.

Transport Minister, Anthony Loke, told the Dewan Rakyat today that the agreement with the previous government recommended a one-way fare of RM15.

"The agreement also states that neither Malaysia nor Singapore has authority over the fare, (but) we feel it is high and won’t attract passengers," he said.

  1. Malaysia, Singapore reach 'an understanding' on RTS
  2. Johor Sultan says he was not aware land involved in RTS project, willing to give it up for free
  3. Govt will not buy back RTS land if Johor Sultan did not pay for it
