Looks good, I hope you have more shots of the interior, why not have double decker buses for public transport similar to those of HK?

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.
BOMBARDIER MEXICO BUILDS WAGONS FOR KUALA LUMPUR'S LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT (LRT)
Monday, March 16, 2009

Bombardier Mexico designs and builds new wagons for the Light Rail Transit system of Kuala Lumpur. With the support of PROMEXICO, the Ambassador of Mexico Jorge Alberto Lozoya recently visited in Port Klang the factory of Malaysian corporation Ara Rails, where assembling of the prototype wagons fabricated in Ciudad Sahagun, Mexico, is taking place.



Ambassador Lozoya was received by Dr. Abdul Rahman Abdul Halim, Executive Director of Hartasuma Sdn Bhd and by Mr. C. Sreejith, Chief Executive Officer of Ara Rails Technology Sdn Bhd who explained that Bombardier Mexico will fabricate 142 wagons during the next two years, especially designed in Mexico according to the needs of Malaysian customers.



During his visit the diplomat was greeted by the six Mexican technicians that will remain in Malaysia during several months in order to familiarize local workers with the improvements generated by the new technology.

Cheers, m
It is narrow gauge. 1,435 mm is the width for a standard gauge track.

Heavy metros have longer and wider cars usually 3 metres in width.

Challenges of public transport
Sunday July 12, 2009
By BEH YUEN HUI and SYLVIA LOOI
> http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...761&sec=nation

PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry is taking measures to have 40% of the people use public transportation by 2012.

Currently, the figure stands at a mere 16%, said Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

“The target may be too challenging but we have to do it to ease traffic congestion and reduce pollution

“To achieve this, numerous efforts, with the collaboration of the relevant agencies, have to be put in place, such as exploring alternative modes of transportation like rail transport,” he said.

Ong said that the railway service, a relatively friendly and less costly mode of transportation, should be one area to focus on.

“Sufficient allocation has to be given for the construction and upgrading of the infrastructure for rail transportation; including the light rail transit (LRT), commuter and monorail,’’ he said.

Allowing more than one operator and promoting healthy competition was another way to enhance this sector, he added.

Ong acknowledged that much more had to be done to raise public confidence in using public transportation. Another area to look into was the extension of LRT lines.

“This certainly is crucial in order for the LRT service to cover a wider area,’’ he said after opening a public forum on “Sustainable Public Transportation – Opportunities and Challen-ges” here yesterday.

Ong said cycling paths and pedestrian walkways could also be considered in the cities.

A committee comprising 13 ministries and agencies, including the Road Safety Department, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety and the police have been set up to look into the impact brought by development, he said.

The committee would meet next week.

On another issue, Ong said Malaysia was in the advanced stage of deliberation on the setting up of an Admiralty Court.

In Ipoh, Ong said the MCA legal bureau had offered an alternative to replace the Internal Security Act (ISA) with a new act.

“We will take it step by step,” he told reporters after attending the Tambun MCA division 60th anniversary dinner.

Rapid KL, short for Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd
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.
