Nonetheless, it was reinforced that the rest of the stations on the Kelana Jaya LRT rail will remain in operation, though services will conclude at an earlier time period of 11pm

These stations include stops between Putra Heights to Lembah Subang, and Damai to Gombak.

Leaving hundreds of Malaysians stranded, multiple avenues have opened their doors (and their cars) to help those in need

In a collaborative effort, local radio stations Fly FM, Buletin FM, and Hot FM released similar statements to their Twitter pages, detailing their attempt to help transport individuals to the Bangsar or Pasar Seni stops.

"Fly FM team will be at Kelana Jaya LRT station tomorrow at 7.30am. Our team will be able to get you into Bangsar or Pasar Seni. Seats are limited. Remember to look out for Fly FM's car!" the statement by Fly FM wrote.

The bus paths include:

- CH01: Ara Damansara to Pasar Seni.
