Light Rail Gates Not Yet Equipped with e-Payment Option
July 31, 2019
Macau Daily Times Excerpt

The Light Rapid Transit (LRT), more commonly known as the Light Rail, is not currently equipped with a tap-and-go payment for passage through gates.

The government explained that this is due to the contract provisions agreed upon earlier with the system’s manufacturer, Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industry.

In most modern urban railway systems such as the Metro in Taipei and Kaohsiung, as well as the MTR in Hong Kong, tap-and-go by e-payment has been in use for a long time. Hong Kong’s system has been in service for nearly 22 years.

In the meantime, a similar payment system in Macau, the Macau Pass, was introduced in March 1999.

Lawmakers were invited to visit the LRT depot on Monday and ride one of its trains.

Among the 22 visiting lawmakers, Wu Chou Kit asked the government why the gates were not equipped with e-payment facilities. The government explained that this function was not stated in the transaction contract with the Japanese manufacturer, and therefore could not be added.

LRT Company to Consider Extending Service Hours During Chinese New Year
Macau Daily Times Excerpt
Jan 9, 2020

A community advisory body in Macau has suggested extending the operating hours of the Light Rapid Transit (LRT) during the upcoming Spring Festival in order to accommodate an anticipated increase in the number of users.

Earlier this week, the Islands District Community Service Consultative Council had a meeting with two representatives of the LRT company. According to the coordinators of the council, the LRT company is considering extending LRT service hours during the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday, with the LRT to also operate trains more frequently.

The LRT company will soon announce the final decision on the extension.

The LRT commenced operations on December 10. Services have been extended once before on December 31, to accommodate the celebratory events in Cotai on New Year’s Eve.

As of December 31, the light rail had served more than 600,000 passengers, equivalent to about 28,000 journeys on a daily basis.

In its meeting with LRT company representatives, the council discussed topics, including the speed of trains, as well as incidents that led to brief suspensions last month.

Three incidents on the LRT network were recorded, including, most recently, a temporary service suspension due to an electricity supply malfunction.
