oh, and there are no signs directing you to the monorail or telling you how to get there :p

Cheers, m
The parking lot will be turn into a shopping mall and Monorail will be extended to Mid Valley. Maybe after that it will not be bad anymore.

Transnasional double decker bus service from KL-Klang

Transnasional is operating a double-deck bus service from KL to Klang

There are stops at Batu 10 and Asia Jaya LRT station.

This is the same bus route as the new RapidKL E4 express

Express Rail Link Celebrates 4th Anniversary
2006




Kuala Lumpur: Express Rail Link (ERL) celebrated its 4th Anniversary in its home ground at the KL City Air Terminal (KL CAT). Teaming up with Kumpulan Karangkraft in their search for the new Dewi Remaja, ERL added a touch of glamour by selecting its very own brand ambassador- Duta Remaja ERL 2006 from among the 22 contestants who vied for the Dewi Remaja crown.
Before the start of the event, guests were treated to a brief parade of ERL’s Kebaya Batik uniform by its female front-line staff. This Kebaya uniform by local designer Azizul Ahmad will be donned by ERL female staff for all official functions.

Speaking at the celebration, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, CEO said,” You may ask what ERL & Dewi Remaja have in common - We are both young, enthusiastic, vibrant, and ready to surge ahead. Leveraging on Brand Ambassadors does help to elevate the image of a product or service.” He added,” The Brand Ambassador will help us to publicise ERL’s future developments and enhancements to our products and services, such as our free-porter service, our VIP service and the Discover Putrajaya Package.”

With the added value to services at KL CAT and with KLIA Ekspres offering seamless city-to-airport transfers, Dr Aminuddin called on more airlines to take advantage of the convenience of city check-in and airport transfer for their passengers. He continued, “With our check-out facility set to come on stream by early 2008, KL CAT will play an even more significant role in the seamless travel experience.”

Dr Aminuddin also registered the company’s achievement in hitting the highest number of passengers carried per day of 17,408 passengers on the first day of the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix. He also made mentioned of the company’s milestone in having transported its 10 Millionth passengers. This milestone was celebrated in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister, YAB Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak in November 2005.

During lunch, a simple cake cutting ceremony was officiated by Dr Aminuddin together with Tuan Hj Hussamuddin Yaacub (Group Managing Director Kumpulan Karangkraf), Puan Emylia Rosnaida (Actress & Winner of ERL’s 10 Millionth Passenger contest), En. AC Mizal (Actor, Singer, Host of live show), En Yusop Jaridi (Asistant General Manager Customer Services Malaysia Airlines), Cik. Farida Hanim Hj. Abdul Rahman (Station Supervisor Royal Brunei Airlines), En Fauzi Abdul Aziz (Station Manager Cathay Pacific). Guests were also entertained by D’Cat, ERL’s very own in-house rock band.

After lunch when the scores were tabulated, Ms Ivy Lee Win Sin, 22, from Selangor was crowned Duta Remaja ERL 2006 by Puan Emylia amidst cheers and applauds from the audience. Her prizes included one year unlimited travel on the KLIA Ekspres, and a 3D/2N stay at the Tanjung Jara Beach Resort for 2.

Later 22 children from an orphanage, who were special guests at the 4th Anniversary celebration, were treated to a ride on the KLIA Ekspres together with the contestants and the newly crowned Duta Remaja ERL 2006.

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB), the concessionaire for the high speed KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit train services was launched by Tun Mahathir,the former Prime Minister, on 13 April 2002. The KL CAT’s city centre check-in facilities and fast connection to the airport have today become necessary conveniences for many travellers.

SPN orders 22 new trains for Kelana Jaya line

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPN) is buying 22 new trains comprising 88 cars with an option for 13 more trains (52 cars) in a multi-million-ringgit deal, as part of the Klang Valley public transport network expansion.

The new trains would be acquired from an internationally backed consortium, according to a statement by SPN on Oct 11 announcing the agreement-signing ceremony scheduled for Oct 13.

When contacted, an SPN official declined to disclose details of the deal. The new train sets are for the Kelana Jaya line, which is the former Putra LRT line.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is expected to witness the signing of the deal. In August, Najib unveiled plans for the extension of the LRT lines in the Klang Valley that include the Kelana Jaya, Seri Petaling and Ampang lines as part of a RM10 billion expansion of the Klang Valley public transport network.

Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd, the company tasked with providing an integrated public transport system in the Klang Valley incorporating rail and bus services, operates the 29km Kelana Jaya line linking Depot Subang to Terminal Putra in Gombak.

The Kelana Jaya line will be extended to Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya and USJ while the Seri Petaling Line will link Puchong.

The current Kelana Jaya line uses the state-of-the-art driverless system by Advanced Rapid Transit Mark II technology from Canada. It has a proven record of very high performance specification in North America and Europe and is designed to meet the demands of a modern city like Kuala Lumpur.

Najib will also witness the launch of SPN’s new logo and the signing of a corporate diploma programme in Passenger Transport Management with UiTM.
HooorraaayyyY! Finally some good news for RapidKL.

4 car trains will make a huge difference on the KJ line. Now if they can resolve the breakdowns on the KJ lines, then things will be great.

Cheers, m

SO it seems SPNB will buy those coaches from abroad instead of manufacturing them locally as the stated in 2004.But I believe there'll be delays if they do try to produce them locally... ...however, I do hope SPNB would someday manufacture LRT coaches locallly when they are ready in the future.

The consortium is Bombardier-Hartasuma and about 30% of the components will be assembled locally.

Going nowhere fast - lesson for Malaysia

http://society.guardian.co.uk/localg...886483,00.html

Thisarticle, Going Nowhere Fast, in the Guardian Newspaper, describes traffic congestion in Manchester, UK from 20 years of degreulation and privatization of the industry.

These are the exact same problems being faced in malaysia. The resemblances are striking, just swap the location from Manchester to Penang

just rode the newest of RapidKL buses

I noticed recently that RapidKL is not running any of the older (white colour) buses in the Subang Jaya area.

So, a good move on their part. Im glad that their fleet is being updated for Subang and USJ.

I rode the latest, newest bus yesterday, on Route 623 (Kelana Jaya LRT feeder bus to Sunway and Subang).

The previous "new" buses that were introduced in September were from Higer (from China).

This latest bus is from another Chinese company, Wuxi An Yuan and the model name is AYVIP.
It is noticably different because the roof Air Conditioner unit is at the front of the bus.

See www.busandcoachinternational.com for more info (the ads for the manufacturer and this webpage are on the backs of all the seats).

Anyways, this bus was fairly comfortable, although the seats are 100% moulded plastic.

Inside it has a GPS system (not operating) as well as a pixel board that has time information, temperature information, and positive messages scrolling repeatedly.

I think that when the GPS is operating, this board will show the route information and information about the next stop and available buses at the next stop.

Cheers, m

KUALA LUMPUR | Train Dangles 25m Above Ground

Star-LRT Coach Overshoots Track



KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 27 (Bernama) -- One of the Star-LRT coaches overshot the concrete embankment and dangled almost 25 metres above ground level as the train pulled up at the last stop at the Sentul Timur station here early this morning.

There were no passengers in the six coaches when the incident occurred at 7.11am.

Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd corporate communications division senior manager Katherine Chew, when met at the scene, said the city's Star-LRT services were not affected.

"It is too early to say what actually happened and our engineers are investigating whether it was caused by technical glitches or human error," she said.

She said that after the initial investigation, the officers would decide how to lift the coach from the embankment.

The mishap happened in the wake of the much-publicised incident on Oct 6 in which the Putra-LRT services were disrupted for nearly 10 hours following a technical glitch.

When contacted by Bernama, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said he had directed the operator of Star-LRT, Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd, to submit a comprehensive report on the matter to him.

"I want them to submit a report to me... it has to be specific, identifying what was the cause of the incident and who is to be blamed. I want it as soon as possible," he said.

The minister said he did not know the details of the incident except that the preliminary report stated that there were no injuries sustained nor was the system disrupted.

"Thank God there were no injuries and the system was not disrupted. Anyway, I want the report to be ready soon," he said.
