Fare Collection Discussions to be Conducted for Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail

MyHSR Corporation of Malaysia and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) issued a joint statement on 19 September 2017, inviting companies specialising in Ticketing and Fare Collection to share the latest ticketing technology and developments for the purposes of developing a robust approach for the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project.

Companies with expertise in Ticketing and Fare Collection are invited to attend the discussions to be held in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on 9 – 10 October 2017.

The joint statement explains: “MyHSR Corp and LTA envisage a passenger-friendly ticketing system that incorporates the latest ticketing technology while ensuring seamless travel throughout the HSR ecosystem, taking into consideration the cross-border elements of the project as well as the separate operators for its International and Domestic Services.”

Inputs from the discussions will be taken into consideration when MyHSR and LTA structure the ticketing and fare collection concept, including how the Assets Company (AssetsCo) and Operating Companies (OpCo’s) are involved in the ticketing process.

First conceived in 2013, the 350 km long Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail is expected to reduce travel time between Singapore and the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to 90 minutes.

The project envisages the construction of a brand new rail line with dedicated tracks that will allow trains to travel at a maximum speed of 300 km/h. It aims to facilitate seamless travel between the two capital cities, enhance business linkages, and connect the peoples of both countries closer together.

The line will consist of eight stations, seven of which will be in Malaysia.
