RTS fare will not be costly: Wee


JOHOR BAHRU — The government will ensure that the fare for the proposed Rapid Transit System (RTS) connecting Singapore and Malaysia will not be costly, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (picture).

He said the government has to consider the interests of the rakyat when deciding on the fare for the RTS, which is scheduled for completion in 2026.

“Whatever the amount, we will decide the same fare but in their respective currencies, and that will be announced before (RTS begins) operation.

“It will not be costly. We have to consider the B40 group and those who are daily commuters,” he told a press conference on the resumption of the RTS project here today.
