A ticket to ride – all the way to the city March 30, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Malaysia, Miscellaneous, Places.
In case you don’t know, there are two Light Rail Transit lines that criss-cross the city and its outer limits. They are the Star LRT and the Putra Line.
I happen to have experience with the Putra Line because I usually either park my car at the car station or park my motorcycle on the sidewalk outside the LRT station.
One of the best things that has ever happened to this beloved KL city is the introduction of the LRT as well as the monorail. Compared to the city cabs, the price of the Monorail or LRT ticket is pittance.
I always bless this particular mode of transport whenever there’s a heavy downpour or massive jam on the highway. Nothing like that ever happens to the Monorail or the LRT.
Along with the thousands of commuters who throng the LRT stations every morning and late afternoon, I too take catnaps while the train wobbles its way to my intended destination. Great sleeping times. You can’t do that in the taxi because the guy may just take you round and round and work up a very nice bill just for you!
