can some one explain to me the rationale of closing the "other stations" earlier than the stations in the centre of the city.

I don't get it why keep the inner city stations open when the outer "other stations" are closed. Unless of course, "station closing time" actually means the time when passengers are no longer allowed to purchase any more tickets or enter the paid area but are still allowed to go through and exit the station. Just like in shopping malls where they may close early but cinemas are still running so there are some people floating around in the malls.

The later is correct. Close mean you are still allowed to exit but not to buy anymore tickets/tokens and enter.

I was there just now.

Indeed, closed means the station is only open for exit, but not entry to the line.

Token khas LRT sempena Perlawanan Sumbangsih

KUALA LUMPUR 6 Jan. — Pengusaha perkhidmatan transit aliran ringan (LRT) RapidKL, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) akan mengeluarkan semula token khas bagi perjalanan pergi balik sempena perlawanan Sumbangsih di Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil esok.

Menjangkakan kebanjiran kira-kira 30,000 peminat sukan bola sepak bagi menyaksikan perlawanan pembuka tirai Liga Super itu antara juara liga, Kelantan dan juara Piala Malaysia, Negeri Sembilan di stesen Bukit Jalil, Prasarana mengambil langkah menambah bilangan pekerja untuk menguruskan operasinya.

Pengarah Kumpulan Prasarana bagi Rel, Khairani Mohamed berkata token khas itu akan dijual di semua stesen LRT esok.

"Mereka yang mendapatkannya di mesin dinasihatkan membeli token khas agar tidak perlu beratur sekali lagi untuk perjalanan pulang,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

Beliau turut menasihati peminat dari Lembah Klang agar membeli token khas dan memilih destinasi terakhir perjalanan mereka tanpa mengira sama ada mereka menaiki LRT ke Ampang atau Kelana Jaya.

Dia juga menggalakkan penumpang menggunakan kad MyRapid yang akan lebih memudahkan perjalanan untuk semua.

"Berdasarkan pengalaman, kami boleh menjangkakan kehadiran besar-besaran bagi menyaksikan perlawanan itu. Jadi kepada mereka yang belum membeli kad MyRapid, sila berbuat demikian sekarang dan nikmati perlawanan Sabtu ini tanpa perlu bersusah-payah,” katanya. — BERNAMA

“This interchange plans include providing an exclusive access to i-Residence as well as from both KL and Klang,” explains Ong.

Under the light rail transit (LRT) blueprint, the extension of the LRT system from Kelana Jaya to Klang will also serve i-City.
So it is very certain that the proposed LRT3 will serve i-City, and corridor north of existing KTM line.

You can imagine it passes Glenmarie, Bukit Jelutong, then i-City, then southwards to Klang city centre.

yep, that's the plan since a long time ago.

The Federal Highway BRT will be the first attempt at rapid transit along the more northern corridor, but at the very least they should start with a direct bus from Klang to Kelana Jaya through Shah Alam.

Cheers, m

I can imagine that bus (Klang to Kelana Jaya, through Shah Alam) would be either a "U" bus or "E" bus.

Kelana Jaya station bus holding area should be expanded, as sometimes, the lane can get clogged up with 2 buses of the same route parked at the same time.

A look of the capacity on existing and future, proposed rail lines of Klang Valley.

Looking into this data, as well as other metro systems in the world, for example, Paris.

Paris Metro line 1 (16 km long) is the most busiest line on Paris Metro network. It carries 725,000 passengers daily. And that's before the conversion of the line operator from driver operated to driverless operation. The trains are narrower than Ampang line, but a little longer than us.

For our Ampang line (44.7 km after extension), I believe the future capacity by design can easily be more than, say....400k or even 500k passengers a day if we get more trains (I believe we have 15 sets, with another 20 sets have to ordered for Kinrara and Puchong extension) and implement CBTC........and also, ceding Chan Sow Lin - Ampang section to future MRT 2.

Those KTMB Metro forecast numbers looks really poor. Even with the currently apalling service I think they hit almost 100k rides per day. But to have a headway of 5 mins plus integration with KJ Line and MRT1 yet they only expect 237k rides per day, doesnt really sound very metro to me.

I hope they will consider a station at seksyen 13 since there is stadium, college (MSU & PTPL) plus hypermarket like Giant & tesco extra..

the Kelana Jaya line numbers are quite impressive - interesting that they will still be higher than 2 of the 3 MRT lines

really makes me wonder why they need to build a 4-carriage MRT when a 6-carriage "LRT" in Ampang style could do the job...

Komuter is not really "metro", even with 5 minute frequencies ... but that is more of a function of the distance between stations and the travel time as opposed to the trains or the frequencies.

Certainly, an upgrade KTMB will have lower ridership numbers as compared to a higher frequency MRT or LRT, but the line carrying capacity during the peak hours will be high enough to move enough people (above 10,000 passengers per hour per direction) to call it "rapid transit"

The public should be made to understand that the terms "MRT" and "LRT" represent service levels, not train types.

By the way, Ampang (STAR) is supposed to be LRT1 and Kelana Jaya (PUTRA) is LRT2. KL Monorail is LRT3 even though it doesn't meet "LRT" levels of ridership capacity (3100 pphpd now, 6400 with new trains) ... those numbers are actually comparable to BRT & modern trams (not rapid trams)

Cheers, m
