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.

It is still used as a stop for commuter trains and freight trains. But the stations have seen better days.

ERL chief: We're better than Europe
NST Online » 2008/04/15



The ERL plays an important part in raising Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s image,
says Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd chief executive Dr Aminuddin Adnan


KUALA LUMPUR: Express Rail Link will help raise Kuala Lumpur International Airport's image as Asia's superior regional hub soon.

Express Rail Link (ERL) Sdn Bhd chief executive Dr Aminuddin Adnan said KLIA's image will be given a boost when ERL offers "check-out" service at KL Sentral's Air Terminal.

He said since ERL started operations in 2002, it had carried more than 20 million passengers.

Aminuddin said this when refuting claims by KTMB Workers Union president Abdul Razak Md Hassan that the service was not practical and cost-effective in a report in Mingguan Malaysia on Sunday when rejecting a proposal to start a bullet train service to Singapore.

"Overall expenditure on the project was RM2 billion, which remained the lowest cost per kilometre, or RM35 million, (20 per cent of the cost of Heathrow Express in London)," he said.

Aminuddin added that the ERL service was 99.7 per cent reliable, which was much better than similar services in Europe or local train services.

He also said the RM35 fee per trip was significantly cheaper than in London which charged STG17 (RM107) for half the distance.

He said the ERL was also environmentally friendly as its trains used electricity.

"Having had 20 million passengers to date, we have significantly reduced the number of road accidents," he said.

Aminuddin said the ERL project was completed on schedule, without cost overruns, and was operating smoothly.

"The achievements of this project clearly reflect the foresight and vision of its founders," he said.

Sure, the ERL is just as good as anything found in Europe but when you get outside of KL Sentral.....

I wonder if Dr. Aminuddin realizes that there is a frustrated untapped market of train users who would love it if they could use the KLIA Transit for a fast trip, instead of having to face the KTM Komuter service.

I myself have hopped from KL Sentral to Bandar Tasik Selatan in order to get out of the city faster. At BTS I can pick up LRT or KTM Komuter trains (invariably, not as packed) going back into the city. It may cost more but it is faster and more comfortable.

Dr. Aminuddin, please lower the fares for KLIA Transit and offer a more frequent transit service. There is a market for this service...you just have to develop this market.

The people of KL will thank you.

Cheers, m

Commuter line for suburbs
Friday April 18, 2008



KUALA LUMPUR: A new commuter rail line by KTM Bhd to connect major suburbs in the Klang Valley is awaiting final approval.

Called the Outer Ring Railway Service, commuters will be able to travel to Sentul, Kepong, Sungai Buloh, Kelana Jaya, Cheras and Bandar Tasik Selatan without having to go through the city centre.

KTMB managing director Datuk Mohd Salleh Abdullah said the proposed route would span about 70km and run in a circular loop on an elevated track.

He told reporters after a visit by Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat to the KTMB headquarters here yesterday that similar public transportation models were used in London and Japan.

Ong said KTMB had proposed the integrated commuter railway service to help overcome traffic congestion in the Klang Valley.

“It is to connect the suburban areas in the Klang Valley, as some of these suburbs have no railway link. The new line is expected to be linked with the existing rail network,” he said.

Ong said the ministry was studying the proposal, which was submitted to the previous Cabinet.

“It is at a proposal level, and we have not looked into the details yet. We have yet to discuss the budget, and we are (now) discussing the destinations (for the service).

“The main aim is to bypass KL city centre. The plan is on the drawing board, and we will need to work hard on the details,” he said.

Currently, the KTM Komuter service runs from Port Klang to Sentul, and Seremban to Kuala Kubu Baru. Both lines go through the KL Sentral station.

On another matter, Ong said he had directed Road Transport Department (JPJ) officers to hold talks with their counterparts in the police force to speed up the integration of databases between the agencies to help enforce traffic and transportation laws in view of the recent wave of bus accidents.

“Information should be available anytime to multiple agencies so that no loophole exists,” he said.

Ong added that it was important to pool together the records on summonses held by the police and the JPJ.

More parking bays at LRT stations soon
Saturday April 19, 2008
TheStar

THE Park and Ride facilities at RapidKL LRT stations will have more parking bays at selected stations and will be taken over by new operators.

RapidKL communications general manager Ebi Azly Abdullah said these operators would carry out upgrading works at these facilities to provide LRT users a better environment and comfort when they park their vehicles for the whole day.

Upgrading works including resurfacing of the ground, extra lighting and CCTV will be installed in phases at selected key stations.

“We have provided additional parking bays at selected stations such as Taman Paramount and Dang Wangi station,” he said.

There will be 300 bays at the Taman Paramount station and 70 at Dang Wangi.

RapidKL has consolidated its Park and Ride operators to three main companies – Imej Parking Sdn Bhd, Operasi Jitu Sdn Bhd and PPKA Sdn Bhd.

Ebi Azly said these companies started operations yesterday and the parking fee was now a flat rate of RM3 for cars and RM1 for motorcycles for the whole day.

Operating hours are from 6am to 1am the next day.

“We hope the parking areas will be more secure and customers will have peace of mind when they leave their cars.

“We have requested that the operators provide adequate signage to inform people of the fees and their customer service numbers should our passengers have any problems at the parking facility,” he said.

To find out more about the location of the Park and Ride facilities, members of the public can call the RapidKL hotline at 03-7625 6999, Monday to Friday from 8.30pm to 5.30pm, or visit the website at: www.rapidkl.com.my.

ERL tickets on sale worldwide
NST Online » 2008/05/16

KUALA LUMPUR: The Express Rail Link (ERL) to Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang will become part of the Amadeus Global Distribution System, one of the largest travel networks, in the next few months.

ERL chief executive officer Dr Aminuddin Adnan said ERL tickets would be made available in 380,000 travel agencies all over the world, especially in Europe.

He announced this at a prize-giving ceremony of the Ride and Win contest that ERL organised together with LG Electronics (M) Sdn Bhd and Emirates Airlines early this year.

The contest, which was to mark ERL's recent milestone of carrying more than 20 million passengers, saw three winners in the fortnightly category walking away with Emirates return flight tickets to Paris, Venice or London.

The winners - Azlul Shkib Arslan, K. Kalaiselvam and Carly George - said they were thrilled to have a chance to travel to the destinations.

The grand prize winners were Emmelia Nasir, Ahmad Firdaus Abdul Rahim and Ahmad Faizal Sulaiman.

Each received a 42-inch LG Black Pearl liquid crystal display TV.

RM550 million boost for transport trust fund
NST Online » 2008/05/28

Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the fund focused on improving public transport system integration, improving the quality of service, coverage and frequency and loan disbursements towards these goals.

Another RM498.77 million had been spent on improving the system.

Abdullah said the money came from the RM1.4 billion the government had accrued when it docked fuel subsidies in 2006.

The remainder of the savings would be channelled into the trust fund next year.

He said this in his written reply to Pas member of parliament for Kubang Kerian Salahuddin Ayub.

Abdullah noted that the final value of the savings went down from the initial RM4.4 billion projection due to the swift rise in global crude oil prices that year from US$61 a barrel in early 2006 to US$74 a barrel by December the same year.

The prime minister said the country's total expenditure on subsidies for petrol, diesel and liquid petroleum gas between 2000 and last year was RM37.4 billion, not including RM48.8 billion lost in tax revenue.

Subsidies for this year are projected to hit around RM18.31 billion, based on the global crude oil price average of US$105 per barrel.

However, Abdullah said the government expected the figure to increase as global oil prices had already breached the US$130 mark.

11 rail lines to ease traffic jam
NewStraitTimes



KUALA LUMPUR: To further ease traffic congestion in the city centre, City Hall is proposing the addition of 11 new or extension rail lines to the Klang Valley transit network by 2020.

As comprehensively outlined in the Draft Kuala Lumpur Plan 2020, the lines are to serve areas not covered by the existing rail network.

They are also to link district centres, employment areas, high-density residential neighbourhoods and new development areas in the city's outskirts.

The new urban rail network will measure 233.61km and serve 184 stations, 119 of them new.


With the new lines, total rail coverage within the city's transit corridor will increase to 53, and link areas as far away as Bandar Tun Hussein Onn in Cheras to Damansara.

Currently, only 10 per cent of the city is directly served by the rail system or within the transit catchments of existing transit stations, while just 20 per cent of Kuala Lumpur is within the transit corridor (located within 400m on either side of a rail line).

The new lines are expected to influence land use and planning, as development is expected to be intensified along rail corridors and transform employment centres such as Kepong, Sri Hartamas and Damansara into transit nodes.

Once completed, 250,000 people are expected to travel by train to and from the city centre.

News of the plan has been warmly greeted by many, particularly commuters in the districts of Hulu Langat (Ampang), Petaling and Gombak.

Rumah Panjang Jinjang Utara Residents' Association chairman G. Yanaparagasam said he welcomed the rail extension since it would elleviate traffic congestion in Kepong.

"Traffic congestion has worsened here with the rise of new apartments and flats. The buses here are okay. But it is difficult for them to keep to their schedule because of the traffic jam, which is at its worst during peak hours."

Subang airport to KL Sentral rail link mulled
Tuesday June 3, 2008, TheStar

PETALING JAYA: A train service linking the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang and KL Sentral is one of the proposals that will be considered in redeveloping the airport, said Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat.

Whether it would be an express train, Light Rail Transit or commuter train, it needed further study, he said.

On the redevelopment of the airport, he said all three terminals are expected to function fully by 2010.

A new project, SkyPark Subang, would be a general and corporate aviation hub comprising the existing Terminal 3 building, regional aviation centre also known as the Hangarage Complex and the Commercial nexus, he added.

At Terminal 2, there will be 12 hangars in operation for repairs, while Terminal 1 has been identified as the site for maintenance, repair and overhaul.

Internet Access For KTM Commuters By 2010
June 02, 2008 19:05 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 2 (Bernama) -- KTM commuters will enjoy access to the internet with the arrival of five new train coaches from South Korea in 2010.

Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) Intercity Services general manager Sarbini Tijan said the five coaches costing RM240 million would be plying the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh double-tracking railway line starting 2010.

"With the internet access, our train services will be on par with developed countries in Europe and Japan," he told reporters after launching KTMB's 'mobile ticketing' via SMS here Monday.

Sarbini said KTMB was also in discussion with several parties to introduce internet services to existing trains.

"KTMB is in the midst of equipping the trains with internet facilities. Implementation will be done in stages."

He added although travelling by train took a longer time, KTMB wanted to make the passengers enjoy the trip by providing various facilities.
