LRT overshoots end station
28 Oct 2006


KUALA LUMPUR: This was the sight that greeted LRT commuters at the Sentul Timur station early yesterday.

The station was closed for more than 20 minutes after this empty train derailed at the stabling area just after 7am.

The train had stopped at the end station when it overshot the stabling area and crashed into the buffer stop and parapet wall.

The crash caused half of one coach to derail and dangle off the track, about 5m above ground level.

The road below was immediately cordoned off and traffic was re-routed until the train was pulled back to safety using two heavy-duty cranes.

Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd corporate communications division senior manager Katherine Chew said that the city’s Star-LRT services were not affected, and investigations to ascertain the cause of the incident are under way.

ERL sees 10% growth in passenger traffic in ‘07
By Isabelle Francis


Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) expects a 10% increase in daily passenger volume next year, boosted by higher tourist arrivals in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

Its chief executive officer Aminuddin Adnan said the KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit currently handled 6,000 passengers daily. Tourism Ministry has estimated 20.1 million tourist arrivals next year.

He said the growth would mainly be driven by transit passengers, which currently account for 20% to 30% of the estimated 40,000 passengers arriving at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) daily.

Aminuddin was speaking to reporters in Kuala Lumpur on Dec 4 at ERL’s KLIA Ekspres VIP Service Celebration of New Partnership.

He said ERL’s KLIA Ekspres VIP Service, a door-to-door executive limousine transfer between KLIA and city centre hotels, now receives 1,000 bookings monthly.

The KLIA Ekspres VIP Service hotel partners are JW Marriott, Ritz Carlton, The Westin Kuala Lumpur, The Regent Hotel, Park Royal and Impiana Hotel.

ERL’s shareholders are YTL Corporation Bhd, Lembaga Tabung Haji and Trisilco Equity Sdn Bhd with 50%, 40% and 10% interest, respectively.

ERL Signs On Four More Partner Hotels For KLIA Ekspres VIP Service

December 04, 2006 19:50 PM
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 4 (Bernama) -- Express Rail Link (ERL), the operator of the KLIA Ekspres and the KLIA Transit high-speed train services, Monday signed on four new partner hotels for its KLIA EKSPRES VIP Service.

They are The Westin Kuala Lumpur, The Regent Kuala Lumpur, Park Royal Kuala Lumpur and Impiana Hotel.

The KLIA Ekspres VIP Service was introduced in August 2004 for KLIA Ekspres customers who would like to have a door-to-door hassle-free high speed train and executive limousine transfer between KLIA and their city centre hotel.

The JW Marriott & The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur were founding partner hotels of this service.

For a fee of RM100, a passenger arriving in KLIA will be paged and greeted by ERL staff upon arrival at the Baggage Reclaim Hall, assisted with baggage, and escorted all the way onboard the train to KL Sentral by the company's "flying porter" service and transferred to their hotels in a limousine.

ERL Chief Executive Officer Dr Aminuddin Adnan said from a humble start of about 300 passengers a month, the KLIA Ekspres VIP Service has been registering over 1,000 bookings per month now, with many of them repeat customers.

KUALA LUMPUR | Double-decker buses for tourists

Double-decker boost for tourists to KL

By YIP YOKE TENG

Tourists can now go to 42 major attractions in Kuala Lumpur in just one bus – KL Hop-On Hop-Off – a uniquely designed, Malaysia's only semi-glass roofed double-decker bus.

Passengers can stay on for the full circuit, or hop on or off at any of the stops. This one-of-its-kind city tour is complemented by on-board commentary in eight languages.

The bus was unveiled by Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor yesterday at the Malaysian Tourism Centre in Kuala Lumpur.



Also present were Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Ramli Ngah Talib, Raja Puan Sri Noora Ashikin Raja Abdullah, City Hall deputy director of development Zulkifli Ibrahim, Elang Wah Sdn Bhd executive director Toh Muda Rizal Ashram Tan Sri Ramli and managing director Syed Azhar Syed Nadzir.

Elang Wah is the first company granted the permission to operate the tourist bus. The company also built the body of the buses.

“The KL Hop-On Hop-Off bus service will not only improve the quality and convenience of KL's public transportation, but is also an additional tourist attraction that will definitely give tourists a whole new experience,” said Tengku Adnan.

He said the Government had allocated RM149mil from the 2007 Budget to promote Visit Malaysia Year 2007 in the hope of achieving 20.1 million tourist arrivals and an estimated RM44.5bil tourism income.

“Therefore, the implementation of the Hop-On Hop-Off city tour is suitable and timely.

“I believe Elang Wah will ensure that the service will always be there by heeding various aspects like punctuality, cleanliness and friendly service. These are all in line with Tourism Ministry's ‘Malaysia Welcomes The World’ campaign.

“I hope all Malaysians will be the frontliners to receive guests, so that they will always think and act tourism,” he added.

Tengku Adnan boarded the bus while Toh Muda Rizal Ashram Tan Sri Ramli and Syed Azhar Syed Nadzir gave explanation on the bus' features.

Syed Azhar said the tourist bus service was planned since four years ago.

For a start, four buses will be operating now while two other buses will be added in by April.

“We target 500 passengers per day and the number should increase by day,” he said.

The bus installed with disabled friendly features will operate from 8.30am to 8.30pm every day. It goes to major attractions and main hotels in Kuala Lumpur through 22 stops at 30-minute intervals.

Tickets valid for 24 hours are priced at RM38 each for adults (RM32 each for group purchase of five and above), RM17 for students, senior citizens and disabled persons. Children under five can board the bus for free.

Mykad holders can enjoy the tour at promotional rate of RM19 per person during the school holidays.

Tickets can be bought on the bus and from travel agents, major hotels, official agents that display the logo or through the internet at www.myhoponhopoff. com

Elang Wah Sdn Bhd can be contacted at 03-2691 1382 or email [email protected]

KL Hop On-Hop Off Buses
Taking in KL the easy way

BY the middle of next month, tourists will be able to go sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur by taking the KL Hop On-Hop Off buses, the latest product introduced to boost tourism in the city.





KL mayor Datuk Ruslin Hasan introduced the double-decker bus to the media on Thursday prior to a KL Tourism Action Council's advisory board meeting at Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

The bus was developed by Elang Wah Sdn Bhd and will be operated by the company.
Elang Wah Sdn Bhd managing director Syed Azhar Syed Nadzir said four buses would be rolled out for a three-week test run and tourists would be able to use them in the middle or at the end of next month.

(From left) Ruslin, Syed Azhar and City Hall advisory board members Ooi Saw Choo and Datuk Dr M. Thambirajah taking a closer look at the double-decker KL Hop On-Hop Off bus during the unveiling ceremony at Renaissance Hotel recently.“It is the first ever hop-on and hop-off bus service in Malaysia. This is certainly not new in Europe and America. We use the concept to suit the Malaysian environment and believe that this service is good for KL and the Visit Malaysia Year 2007,” he said.

“Hopefully, by April, we will have 10 buses. With the four buses, we estimate (a ridership of) 500 passengers a day and 1,500 passengers a day with 10 buses.”

The bus will connect to about 43 tourist attractions in the city.

The KL Hop On-Hop Off City Tour will run from 8.30am to 8.30pm daily at 30-minute intervals. Passengers can hop on and off as many times as they like at any of the 22 designated stops along the route.

A pre-recorded tour commentary in Malay, English, Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, French and Spanish is available by using headsets on board. The guided tour is designed for tourists to experience the places of interest through stories of the present and past.

The bus will also stop at major hotel areas. Tickets can be bought at a ticket counter to be built in Bukit Bintang, on the bus and over the Internet while hotel and travel agents will act as agents to sell the ticket to their customers.

The tickets, which will allow passengers to use the service the whole day, are priced at RM38 (adult), RM160 (family or group of five) and RM17 (senior citizens, students and the disabled). It will be free for children aged below five.

KUALA LUMPUR | Public Transport

::Kuala Lumpur Public Transport::


KTM Komuter is an electrified commuter train service first introduced in 1995, catering especially to commuters in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding suburban areas. It is a popular mode of transportation for commuters working in Kuala Lumpur, as they can travel to the city without the hassle of traffic congestion. Coaches are modern and air-conditioned. For those who drive to the stations/halts, 'Park & Ride' facility is provided at a nominal charge.





The Kuala Lumpur monorail system in Malaysia opened 31 August 2003, and serves 11 stations running 8.6 km with two parallel elevated tracks. It connects Kuala Lumpur's main station KL Sentral with the "Golden Triangle". It was built for RM1.18 billion by KL Infrastructure Group Berhad (KL Infra) that holds a 40-year concession to operate the monorail. The system utilises permanently coupled 2-car trains, which are able to accommodate 158 passengers each during regular operations. The monorail carriages themselves were built by a Malaysian company.





Rapid KL, short for Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd is a government-owned company which was formed in 2004 as part of the restructuring of the public transport system in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital.

Rapid KL, which is 100%-owned by the government, is the operator of Kuala Lumpur's three light rail transit (LRT) lines. It is also the largest stage bus (regular or trunk bus route) and feeder bus operator in Kuala Lumpur.

All assets of the LRT and bus service is owned by another government-owned company, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) which was also formed under the restructing process.

Ampang LRT line





KLIA Ekspres is a non-stop, airport rail link service between Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Malaysia. The service is run by Express Rail Link Snd.Bhd. which began its operations on 14 April 2002.





KLIA Transit is a rail service linking Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) operated by Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL). It shares the same tracks as the KLIA Ekspres but unlike the direct airport express service, KLIA Transit stops at three other stations.

Both KLIA Transit and KLIA Ekspres services are often reffered to by Malaysians simply as ERL.

KTM to act on ticket counter complaints
Friday January 12, 2007
By STUART MICHAEL
TheStar


TICKET counters at 17 KTM Komuter stations in the Klang Valley will stay open until 9pm, or latest 10pm, from Jan 24.

This announcement was made by KTM Bhd commuter services regional manager (central region) Ali Hanafiah Bujal following a StarMetro report on Jan 10 on the difficulty faced by commuters in buying tickets after 5.30pm.

Many commuters have complained about the 5.30pm closure of the ticket counters, forcing them to queue up in long lines to buy tickets from the ticket vending machines. Sometimes, even these machines are out of order. Missing trains while waiting in line adds to their misery.

According to Ali, the ticketing counters at 17 commuter stations have been closing at 5.30pm as they were each manned by only one staff member.

The stations are Kampung Raja Uda, Telok Gadong, Telok Pulai, Bukit Badak, Padang Jawa, Batu Tiga, Setia Jaya, Seri Setia, Kampung Dato Harun, Jalan Templer, Petaling, Angkasapuri, Salak Selatan, Bangi, Batang Benar, Klo and Seputih

“We have been receiving feedback from the public regarding this and were in the process of taking action.

“We will work out the problem in stages so that ticket counters are open till 9pm,” added Ali.

KTMB corporate communications manager Shahriza Embi advised commuters who travel regularly to buy weekly or monthly tickets as this was more convenient.

The reason she gave for the early closure of the ticketing counters at the 17 commuter stations was these stations’ low passenger count.

Plan For LRT Line From Kota Damansara To Cheras
09-11-2006


KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- The government's plan to expand the light rail transit (LRT) system in the Klang Valley includes the introduction of a new Putra LRT line from Kota Damansara to Cheras, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said Thursday.

"The existing Putra LRT line which terminates at Kelana Jaya will have an extension to Subang Jaya and USJ, while the Star LRT line that ends at Bukit Jalil will be extended to Puchong," he said.

Replying to Ir Hasni Mohammad (BN-Pontian) in the Dewan Rakyat, he added that the KTM Komuter line which terminates at Sentul would be extended to Batu Caves.

Chan also said that the Express Rail Link (ERL) project, which provides service from KL Sentral to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), was built under a privatisation arrangement at a cost of RM1.2 billion, fully financed by a private developer.

"In return, the government drew up a 30-year concession agreement with the joint-venture company under the build, operate and transfer concept," he said.

However, he added, the cost of land acquisition for the project was borne fully by the government, and that RM26.07 million had been paid out between 2001 and 2005.

To a query raised by Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN-Ayer Hitam), Chan said he would personally look into complaints that air passengers who do not use the ERL to get to the airport would not be allowed to check-in at KL Sentral.

He said the government encouraged air passengers going to KLIA by the ERL to check-in at KL Sentral.
