The local newspaper reported that government would install free wifi at the MRT stations as well as inside the trains.

After conversion of its old steam loco hauled train service to electrified EMU suburban system, they have started many urban rail system in Kuala Lumpur. Light rail & Monorail have opened gradually, and at last the metro system has started service since 2016. Unlike most cities, but like Sao Paulo etc. the line numbering covers the entire electric rail transport here.

1 & 2—suburban train,
3, 4 & 5—light rail,
6 & 7—suburban train,
8—monorail,
9—metro,

However this numbering system is very much confusing. I suggest the metro route should be renamed as M1, and future metro routes also like M2 & M3. Two more lines are also planned.

The Kuala Lumpur metro uses driver-less trains, which is much costly than conventional driver operated train. Why they have chose that? Please write some details.

The LRT is not Light Rail, but rather to be called Light Rapid Transit, i.e. Light Metro. With 1 mins headway, those lines are well considered as metro.

Why uses driverless train? safer and smaller headway, i.e. it is less human error and you can still enjoy 1 mins headway.

Jug Cerovic and his team from inat.fr have updated their transit map of Kuala Lumpur. It's getting a lot crowded now than ever!

Soon KL commuters can enjoy integrated metro service with commuter rail. So no more double fare ,no more double tap in tap out. Maybe more savings if you're taking more trips using different modes.

Currently the fares are integrated among the LRT, Monorail, BRT and the newest MRT. But it falls short for our suburban -city -suburban commuter rail (KTMB) that is a different owner / operator.

And ultimately, soon in 2022 and 2026 when HSR and ECRL is completed, the system will have been fully integrated. I.e if you're from Singapore taking the hsr and use the designated card (eg Touch n Go enabled ), regardless where your final destination is (KTM, MRT, LRT), you should expect a seamless journey and also pay a fare that should give you some discount, not as if you're paying individually for the mode (hsr + lrt + ktmb etc).
Lets see if we can pull it off.

KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 — An integrated ticketing system for all local train services is expected to be implemented at the end of this year.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said a meeting between the two service operators, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) and Prasarana, to implement the system had been held, but several issues regarding KTMB’s system had to be resolved first.
“The operating company for the KTM commuter service in Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), while the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system is managed by Prasarana Malaysia Berhad. The two have different systems.
“I just want to make sure that all of these train services including the High Speed Rail and East Coast Rail Line (ECRL) are included in one system, so that it will be fully interconnected and easier for commuters to go to only one ticket counter at a time,” he told reporters after opening the Ampang Park LRT mural, here, today.
The integrated ticketing system is an initiative by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) that will require public transport service providers to integrate their fare system and the journeys across multiple operators.

I would like to congratulate the Greater Kuala Lumpur Area on the opening of its first Mass Rail Transit line last week. The development of that first line shows that Kuala Lumpur really can't be stuck with just medium-capacity or lower-capacity rail transit lines forever, considering the rapid growth of the Klang Valley area and skyscrapers sprouting practically anywhere in that region.

Prasarana, LRT 3 Project Consortium Sign Agrement For Work Package Worth RM1.56 Bln

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 2 -- Prasarana Malaysia Bhd has awarded the light rail vehicle (LRV) work package to the consortium of Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT 3) project worth RM1.56 billion.

The consortium companies comprises CRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co Ltd (CRRC ZELC), Siemens Ltd China and Tegap Dinamik Sdn Bhd.

Prasarana Group Chairman, Tan Sri Ismail Adam, said the consortium would be responsible for the design, manufacture, supply, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of 42 six-car LRVs for the LRT3 project.

"With the three companies' proven track record, experience and quality of delivery, I am confident that works will be completed within time and cost," he said at the signing ceremony between Prasarana and consortium here today.

Very interesting

Quote:
Capable of carrying 1,271 passengers per LRV, LRT3’s LRVs are Malaysia’s first six-car driverless trains. Each of the LRV has a capacity equivalent to twenty-eight (28) units of single-deck buses.

To ensure the comfort of passengers, the LRVs will be equipped with jerk limit controls, sound insulations and disabled friendly facilities.

As the first green rail in Malaysia, the LRVs’ air conditioning system will be ozone-friendly while its friction brakes will be asbestos
-free.
