KTM Commuter Plans Shuttle Services To Overcome Overcrowding During Peak Hours
October 25, 2008 20:01 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 25 Bernama) -- KTM Commuter plans to introduce shuttle services between Kajang and Sungai Buloh as well as between Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam to overcome overcrowding during peak hours.

Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) managing director Abd Radzak Abd Malek said that by year end, six commuter sets would be deployed for the new services from 5.30am to 9am and from 4pm to 8pm.

This would be done by putting three additional coaches into operations, he said. Presently, 28 commuter units were used for the Seremban-Rawang and Port Klang-Sentul commuter routes, he added.

The additional coaches would reduce overcrowding by 35 percent, he told reporters at the Aidilfitri celebration at KL Sentral station here Saturday.

He also announced that KTMB would introduce express coaches from KL Sentral to Ipoh in mid-2010 following the completion of the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh double tracking project.

He said five trains with each having six coaches would be used to ferry up to 300 passengers at any one time but the frequency and fare had not been determined. The train's top speed would be 140 kilometres per hour, he said.

On the double tracking project in Penang which had been affected by floods, Radzak said the work would resume in a week.

Komuter every 10 minutes by year-end
Sunday October 26, 2008 TheStar

KUALA LUMPUR: KTM Komuter services are expected to run on 10- minute frequency during peak hours by the end of this year with the delivery of 28 overhauled trains.

KTMB managing director Abd Radzak Abd Malek said he was trying to devise a system where six extra trains which did not run the complete route could be operated between 6am and 9am as well as 5pm and 8pm.

Speaking to reporters during KTMB’s Hari Raya open house, Radzak said the six trains would run between Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam on the Sentul-Port Klang route, and between Kajang and Sungai Buloh on the Seremban-Kuala Kubu Baru route.

The KTM Komuter service has been suffering from delays as the original fleet of 62 trains has been reduced to less than half because of the lack of funding for maintenance.

Radzak said the frequency of KTM Komuter trains would be 15 min from the current 20 min at all times with the arrival of 37 overhauled trains in July 2009.

On the Sentul-Batu Caves extension, Radzak said services were expected to start by the end of next year. He said the RM500mil project was now 60% completed.

During the event, Razak announced that KTMB had adopted two children who were born on trains.

Aliza Safira Mohd Rafi was born in a coach near Jerantut station on Sept 28 this year while Mohd Zikri Haziq was born on Nov 2, 2006 at Kajang station.

Aliza has been given the nickname Mek Je after Jerantut station while Mohd Zikri was nicknamed Mat Kajang after Kajang station.

Both are entitled to free train rides for life and would also be given priority for employment with KTM Berhad.

KL Ligh Rail Transit (LRT)
- Kota Damansara-Cheras (40km)



No Plan To Raise Rail Transport Fares
October 29, 2008 18:36 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 ( Bernama) -- The Transport Ministry has not received any proposal for fare increase from rail operators, its Deputy Minister Datuk Lajim Ukin said.

He said the ministry was only empowered to revise the fare rates for rail transport services like the commuter, light rail service (LRT) and monorail.

"A revision of fare rates for bus service comes under the jurisdiction of the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board," he said in reply to Chua Tian Chang (PKR-Batu) in the Dewan Rakyat here today.

Lajim said a new LRT route, stretching 42km from Kota Damansara to Cheras and expected to be ready in 2014, was expected to draw more than 300,000 passengers daily as well as reduce traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur.

"An additional route for LRT, stretching 30km for the Ampang and Kelana Jaya Rail Lines will benefit 2.6 million residents around Subang Jaya and Puchong," he added.

He said the additional Kelana Jaya Line, which also involved the purchase of 35 sets of new trains costing RM1.3 billion, was expected to fully operational in early 2010.

"With these measures, the Kelana Jaya Line capacity will be increased by two-fold, from the current 160,000 passengers daily to 350,000 passengers a day," he added.

Termination of SEMUA and SEPADU TouchNGo daily pass
05 November 2008

Petaling Jaya, 05 November 2008: Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (RapidKL) will discontinue the issuance of SEMUA and SEPADU daily pass effective 1st December 2008.

RapidKL General Manager for Communications Division, Ebi Azly Abdullah said the demand for SEMUA and SEPADU daily pass, which is currently available via TouchNGo, is very low.

“Our statistics show that SEPADU is used by only 0.002 percent of RapidKL commuters while SEMUA is utilised by 0.005 percent of our total ridership,” he said in a statement issued here today.

Ebi said, commuters can still continue to enjoy discounted fares on RapidKL bus and LRT services by purchasing the Monthly Travel Cards (MTC), which will give them discounted fare for unlimited travel for one month.

The cost of the Monthly Travel Cards is as follows:

Quote:
Integrated Monthly Travel Card For Bus and LRT RM135
Bus Monthly Travel Card For Bus only RM80
LRT Monthly Travel Card For LRT only RM100
Cost Comparison

By purchasing a MTC, commuters can save between RM40 to RM75 a month depending on their travel pattern. This is illustrated in the chart below:

Quote:
Integrated Monthly Travel Card @ RM135
RM135 divided by 30 days = RM4.50 a day

SEPADU @ RM7 RM7 x 30 days = RM 210 a month

SAVINGS RM75
Quote:
Bus Monthly Travel Card @ RM80
RM80 divided by 30 days = RM2.67 a day

SEMUA @ RM4
RM4 x 30 days = RM120 a month

SAVINGS RM40

Proposal to build two-decked bus-stops
Published: 2008/11/22 BusinessTimes

BUS-STOP Development and Advertisement Sdn Bhd (BSDA) is proposing to local authorities a private financing initiative (PFI) to upgrade existing bus stops to double-decked air-conditioned structures on a deferred payment basis.

Managing director Abdul Murad Abdul Malek said the company's proposed upgraded bus-stop would be similar in size to two units of 40-footer containers stacked on top of another.

"It will be glass-walled, air-conditioned and equipped with toilet facilities and a mini cafe," he said after signing a collaborative agreement in Kuala Lumpur yesterday with Korean technical experts to facilitate bids for bus-stop upgrading concessions.

Also present were International Construction and Civil Engineering Co Ltd president director Park Il Chun and air-conditioner maker Hanaro Gongjo Co Ltd president Kim Dong Joo.

Kim said his company holds the patent to an integrated and "quiet" compressor air-conditioner that is energy efficient and eco-friendly.

"If there is good take-up of our air-conditioners from this bus-stop project, we may want to put up a factory here," he said.

In Malaysia, bus stops are usually built and upgraded on a design-and-build basis where payment is made to the contractor progressively.

Abdul Murad is offering to state governments the option to not pay upfront for work done on bus-stops, but award long-term concessions and advertisement rights instead.

"Financing will not be a problem as bankers agree that this business model is feasible," he said.

"We've proposed this idea to the Selangor state government and we've identified 1,700 sites that are suitable to be upgraded into air-conditioned bus-stops," he said.

Abdul Murad estimates the market value of upgrading 10,000 bus-stops throughout Malaysia to total about RM300 million.

"This is excluding advertisement rights, of course," he said.

Details of the Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT plan expected soon
02-12-2008: by Yong Min Wei THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: The government soon will have full details of the Kota Damansara-Cheras light rail transit (LRT) project which will eventually benefit more than a million commuters in the Klang Valley.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the 42km LRT project that would link Kota Damansara and Cheras was on the drawing board and expressed confidence that the project could take off in the near future.

“Just a few days ago, a comprehensive briefing on the project was given to me and my senior officers,” he told a press conference during his working visit at the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd’s (KTMB) Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) depot and locomotive workshop yesterday.

According to Ong, his ministry would need some time following the comprehensive briefing to provide a host of information on the entire project that has been announced as part of the measures to develop public transport under the Budget 2009.

Under Budget 2009, RM35 bilion will be expended to improve public transportation, which among others include a new Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT line set for completion in 2014.

Asked to elaborate on the estimated cost and deadline for the project, he replied: “Be a little bit more patient... I don’t have much to tell you today.”

On a separate matter, Ong did not wish to comment on several independent non-executive directors that were reported to have tendered their resignation from the KTMB board following their protest in the appointment of the company’s new managing director.

“It is only fair that I leave it to the Ministry of Finance to comment as the appointments of directors come under their jurisdiction” he pointed out.

Nevertheless, Ong said such resignations would not affect the operations of KTMB, adding that he was satisfied with the company’s ability to tackle problems faced by commuters lately.

Earlier, Ong said following successful overhauls, there would be 36 EMUs to service the KTM Komuter train routes by March 2009 from the current 29 EMUs that were operational.

“With the increase, waiting during peak hours will be reduced to only 15 minutes,” he said.

He also stressed that of the 15 locomotives from Dalian, China that were non-operational in May this year, 13 locomotives had been repaired and now operational while the other two should be on track by month end.

Ong added that repairs to the 15 locomotives were free of charge as it was well within warranty period following their fresh delivery from the manufacturer.

Shorter waiting time for Komuter users come March
02-12-2008:-

KUALA LUMPUR: By March 2009, commuters using the KTM Komuter service need not push and shove and wait for more than 15 minutes, assured Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat yesterday.

He said the number of trains providing the service will be increased to 36 from the present 29 operating now.

“The 36 trains will meet commuter needs. The waiting time of between 20 and 30 minutes will also be reduced to 15 minutes,” he told reporters after a working visit to the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) depot in Sentul here.

Ong said this could be achieved as work to repair locomotives and electric multiple units (EMUs) was proceeding smoothly.

He said that on a working visit to the depot on May 8, he found only five locomotives operating while 20 were not.

“Beginning this September, after Abd Radzak (Abd Malek) took over as KTMB managing director, on my directions, he set up a task force to tackle the problem and at the same time the original supplier was brought in to handle the repair work,” he said.

As a result, Ong said, 18 locomotives were repaired and were operating and two more would be operating before the end of December.

Besides the locomotives, the EMUs expected to be used on the double-tracking lines also faced delays in repair work progress.

“Of the 20 EMUs being handled by the contractors, 12 have been overhauled and fully repaired and by January the number of trains providing service will reach 31 as opposed to 29 now,” he said. Ong invited the media to see for themselves the situation at the KTMB depot.

“This I need to share with you, as I promised earlier, in the name of transparency, we will make a special arrangement for the media to come in to have a look, to have first-hand information, to clear any doubts you might have,” he said. — Bernama

New Four-Car Trains
SPNB
The Star - 18 August 2008



New Four-Car Trains from Bombadier

New four-car LRT trains in Klang Valley by next year
Friday June 13, 2008, TheStar

PETALING JAYA: The new four-car light rail transit trains for the Kelana Jaya LRT line in the Klang Valley are expected to start operations by the end of next year.

The trains are capable of carrying more than twice the load of the current two-car trains.

In 2006, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd signed the RM1.2bil deal with the Bombardier-Hartasuma consortium for 22 trains, with an option for a further purchase of 13 trains.

The trains are being manufactured by Canadian company Bombardier and will be assembled by Hartasuma Sdn Bhd in Malaysia.

According to details made available at the Rail Solutions Asia exhibition, each train will have 32 seats and can comfortably carry 740 passengers, compared with the present load of 370 people per train.

Under “crush load” situations, the trains can carry 944 passengers. The current trains can only handle 472 passengers.

The new trains, which will be operated by RapidKL, will enable the capacity of the Kelana Jaya line to be increased by another 191,000 passengers daily.

MAS’ ticket office opens new centre at KL Sentral from Saturday
Monday December 8, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines will integrate ticketing operations for the Klang Valley at KL Sentral in Brickfields from Saturday. Operations at its former head office in Jalan Sultan Ismail will cease.

Senior general manager (network and revenue management) Dr Amin Khan said the move was part of ongoing efforts to consolidate direct distribution channel operations for ticketing and related services at one centralised location.

“This flagship facility is in its final stages of expansion and once completed will be better equipped to cater to the needs of our customers,” he said in a statement yesterday.

“Our premier ticket office at KL Sentral operates daily from 4.30am to midnight and offers a wide range of air travel related services for walk-in passengers.”

These include reservations and ticketing, reissuance of tickets for travel on Malaysia Airlines and MASwings, Internet booking kiosks, Golden Holidays facilities and refunds processing.

Tenders to extend RapidKL LRT may be out in Q1
By Sharen Kaur
Published: 2008/12/22

Key players like UEM Builders, IJM Corp, YTL Corp, Ho Hup Holdings, and Loh & Loh Construction are expected to bid

SYARIKAT Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB), a unit of the Ministry of Finance Inc, may call for tenders to extend the RapidKL Light Rail Transit (LRT) system by as early as the first quarter of next year.

The LRT covers two lines, namely the Ampang Line (previously, Star LRT) and Kelana Jaya Line (formerly Putra LRT). The assets are owned by SPNB.

The tenders, worth over RM1 billion, is for track and civil works, fare collection, and systems work involving power supply, signaling and communication, industry players said.

Under the plan, the Ampang line will be extended from Bukit Jalil to Puchong, heading towards Subang Jaya, and linking up to the Kelana Jaya line.

The extension will involve 32km of double track and around 24 new stations, a source said.

Currently, the Ampang Line runs from Ampang to the city centre, and then from Sentul Timur towards the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil, while the Kelana Jaya Line starts from Terminal Putra Gombak up until Kelana Jaya.

"The extension will allow for a more complete integrated rail network. The project may be government-funded or implemented through private finance initiatives," the source added.

Key players like UEM Builders Bhd, IJM Corp Bhd, YTL Corp Bhd, Ho Hup Holdings Bhd, and Loh & Loh Construction Bhd are expected to bid.

It is learned that low-profile railway engineering firm Global Rail Sdn Bhd will make submissions for the systems work, in collaboration with its foreign technology partners. It is eyeing a portion which is worth RM80 million.

The government is also expected to pump prime part of the RM500 million allocation under the RM7 billion economic stimulus package announced by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on November 4, to kick-start the project.

The allocation will also cover KTM Bhd's requirement for new three-car electronic multiple unit sets to cater for the Klang Valley.

KTMB has 60 sets now, but only half can be used. It needs 112 sets.

"Tenders for the train sets are under evaluation as the government is looking at an option to lease the trains to reduce its capital investment on the assets," the source said.

The tenders or lease options will attract manufacturers from Korea, China, Japan and Europe.
