Abstract

The aim of this study is to explore the effect of sex disparity on passenger satisfaction and loyalty to the light rail transit (LRT) services in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A total of 417 responses from a self-administrated questionnaire were analyzed using non-parametric tests, namely Mann-Whitney U test and Spearman’s correlation test. Based on the Mann-Whitney U test, results showed a significant difference between male and female LRT passengers in terms of their satisfaction and loyalty. In addition, the Spearman’s correlation test proved a significant and positive relationship between passengers’ sex, satisfaction and loyalty. Finally, future suggestions were made based on the findings reported in this study.
