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.

ERL sees 10% growth in passenger traffic in ‘07
By Isabelle Francis
04-12-2006

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.

KL City Air Terminal (KLCAT)
Terminal Udara KL


Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) or Sentral Kuala Lumpur is the main railway station of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Opened on April 16, 2001, it was built to replace the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, a colonial-era landmark which remains open for commuter trains only. KL Sentral is the largest train station in Southeast Asia.

KL Sentral was designed as an intermodal transportation hub. Most of Kuala Lumpur's rail-based public transportation serve KL Station while many intercity trains serving Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore begin here.

KL Sentral actually refers to the entire 290,000 square metres of development which was built on the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu marshalling yard in Brickfields. The entire development includes the transportation hub, hotels, office towers, condominiums and shopping malls and is expected to be completed in 2012.

KL Sentral is developed by a consortium made up of Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB), Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) and Pembinaan Redzai Sdn Bhd.

Rapid KL buses



A new Rapid KL bus

Rapid KL is also the largest bus operator in the Klang Valley. Currently, there are 98 stage bus routes and 39 feeder bus services which operate from LRT stations. The bus routes operated by Rapid KL were previously operated by Intrakota Komposit Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of DRB-Hicom Bhd; and Cityliner Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Park May Bhd. In 2005, Rapid KL buses carried around 190,000 passengers daily.

Rapid KL is however not the only public transport operator in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley. Other rail-based services, such as KTM Komuter, KL Monorail, KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit are operated by other companies. There are also many other bus operators such as Metrobus, Len Seng Omnibus Co. Ltd., and Selangor Omnibus Co. Ltd.

Stesen Sentral
KL City Air Terminal (Terminal Udara KL)

Who Designed the Station?

Designed by Dr Kisho Kurukawa, in association with Malaysian consultants, Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur is an epitome of a dream well brought to life. The architecture design of the station while being very contemporary and international, also incorporates traditional Islamic motives of a multi-pointed star, which can be seen on the dome and the floor tiles.

The building was developed by KL Sentral Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB), a prestigious group of companies which has built a name for itself in "Shaping the Nation's Landscape", via property development and management. Currently managed by Semasa Sentral Sdn Bhd another subsidiary of MRCB, it clearly displays the future of transportation in Malaysia.

The Concept

The concept of KL Sentral is futurist-holistic, and its design reflects this. Cutting-edge technology blends seamlessly with a well-planned layout of spacious plazas, indoor courtyards, sidewalk cafes, shops, restaurants and numerous pedestrian walkways. Throughout, artistically landscaped greenery and buffer zones add to a sense of harmony. The result is a city-within-a-city that provides ultra-modern facilities and amenities yet also promotes emotional and sensorial well-being: a city where life flows efficiently without limitation.

AT KL Sentral, you can set up your office as well as home. As all you could possibly need is within walking distance of each other, motor traffic is kept to a minimum, creating an atmosphere free from urban noise and pollution. At the same time, the open layout ensures even human traffic is maintained within non-intrusive limits.

There is a central electrical distribution system for self-sufficient power generation, while civic functions such as waste collection and water supply are managed using the latest, and most efficient, systems.

The Kuala Lumpur Sentral masterplan features a self-contained city concept comprising corporate office towers and business suite, international hotels, luxurious condominiums, a shopping mall and an international exhibition, convention and entertainment center.

These carefully integrated developments are designed to present an environment that is unparalleled in its dynamism and emphasizes the essence of urban living. It is the first city in Malaysia to portray the new characteristic of a global city, where work, live and play co-exist in a harmonic environment.

Award-winning Kisho Kurokawa Associates & Architects, who also designed the main building of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), is responsible for this contemporary and international concept of space, light and greenery. Spacious plazas, indoor courtyards, sidewalk cafés, shops, restaurants and pedestrian walkways interspersed with landscaped green buffer zones, create a sense of a harmonious existence, blending functionality with technology and accessibility.

The prime 72-acre freehold commercial and residential environment is built around a world-class transportation hub, Stesen Sentral.

An Urban Symbiosis

As in perfectly balanced ecology, a well-planned city should allow resources that nourish its growth to flow through effortlessly. Every element that makes up the body should work together seamlessly. Constantly refining and adding value to each other, yet always maintaining a simple and mutual harmony.

Special Komuter pass for tourists launched
Wednesday January 31, 2007
TheStar


KUALA LUMPUR: KTM Bhd has introduced a special tourist pass for travel on KTM Komuter during Visit Malaysia 2007.

The KTM Komuter Tourist Pass is for unlimited travel on KTM Komuter for one day to any destination within the network.

KTM marketing manager Mohd Noordin Kimi said travellers could now visit places without the hassle of having to purchase tickets for different destinations.

“There are a number of interesting places to visit along the Komuter route and the pass is going to make it a lot easier.

“Tourists will find travelling on the Komuter more convenient than taking taxis and buses,” he said.

The pass costs RM12 for adults and RM6 for children and senior citizens. Children below four travel free.

The passes are, however, not valid for travel on board the KTM Intercity trains.

KTM also announced that it was slashing ticket fares by 25% for travel on its KTM Intercity trains.

Only tickets purchased at the KTM booth during the three-day Matta Fair (March 16 to 18) will be discounted. The tickets are valid for three months.

“Many of us have never travelled by train, so why not take this opportunity and experience it for yourself,” Mohd Noordin said.

For enquiries, call 03-2267 1200.

And why are all the machines spoilt at one shot?
