Car-free days in Kuala Lumpur seem to be exciting events on the first and third Sundays of each month. Perhaps you have been wondering why these days go on and if it is worth it to participate in the events. You may also be wondering what kind of transportation is available to you during those days when you need to get somewhere in the city or outside of the city. Here we discuss those issues to help clarify them for you.
- Carbon-free air
When there are car-free days in Kuala Lumpur, this is to help promote the Go Green Campaign, which expresses a desire to see somewhat of a reduction of carbon that is released into the air from cars. This promotes better oxygen for people to breath cleaner air, which promotes overall better health for the people of Kuala Lumpur.
- Fun events
There are many fun events for you to participate in with your family and friends during the car-free days of Kuala Lumpur on the first and third Sundays of every month. The event runs from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The good news it that there is free entry in the designated area of the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur, where the event is featured. Roads which are closed to regular cars are open to the public to use for walking, jogging, bicycling, skateboarding, rollerblading and even roller skating. Bicycles can be rented for free, but picture ID is required to obtain one to use during the event. There are food trucks with delectable things to try. It is a fun time to get out for some exercise and to chat with friends and family members, because during the week people are so busy with work and other responsibilities that limit quality time with the ones they care about.
It is understandable that you may have to go somewhere and need transportation to get there. But then there is the dilemma of roads being closed to cars. However, the good news is that not all transportation is shut down, because the reality is people have to get about. So on the days when you cannot use your car, you will have peace of mind knowing that you can take the KTM Komuter.
Car-free days in Kuala Lumpur can be fun and amazing for a lot of people. And those who need transportation are not completely stranded, knowing that the KTM Komuter is available to them. So car-free days are overall a good addition to the way of life in Kuala Lumpur.
