- With the expansion of the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System, savvy property buyers are securing homes near train stations to take advantage of the current and future rail connectivity.
Train station is the new “location” now for property hunting. That is not surprising as living near a light rail transit (LRT) station or mass rapid transit (MRT) station comes with many perks.
The Klang Valley’s extensive rail network, comprising over 15 interconnected lines from LRT Kelana Jaya Line to Express Rail Link (ERL), ensures easy access to multiple destinations within Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya. Whether you want to visit Suria KLCC mall or catch a flight at the KL International Airport, just hop on the train, catch up on your work or entertainment, and hop off on arrival.
With the LRT3 Shah Alam Line scheduled to be opened on March 1, 2025; and the MRT3 Circle Line – the final piece to complete the urban rail network with 10 interchange stations – slated for completion in 2030, city folk are really looking forward to faster and greener commuting soon.
Travelling time and costs will be reduced as you spend less on petrol, car maintenance, tolls, and parkings, especially in the city centre, which typically costs nothing less than RM10 per day. In comparison, parking at LRT or MRT stations with Park N’ Ride facilities will only cost you RM4.30 per day. Enjoy further savings with promotions such as the current My50 unlimited travel pass for all RapidKL rail and bus services for only RM50 per month.
So, if you are looking to purchase a home in a transit-oriented development or close to rail convenience, here are five upcoming projects you can check out:
