Final draft of transport master plan on website
By Nuradzimmah Daim 10 November 2011
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/northe...#ixzz1dOlibBM0

KUALA LUMPUR: The final draft of the Greater KL/Klang Valley Land Public Transport Master Plan is up on the Land Public Transport Commission's website.

Commission chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said the public can give their feedback through its website at www.spad.gov.my.

"We will gather feedback from the public for a few months before submitting it to the Prime Minister's Office for approval.

"We also welcome feedback in writing or calls to our office. Greater KL Land Public Transport (LPT) master plan will be used as a guide and regulator to implement and improve connectivity among the public transport services (rail, bus and taxi).

"After this (Greater KL LPT master plan), we will move to other regions in the country," he said.

To download the draft, look for projects and click at the toolkit icon and choose Greater KL/Klang Valley under the regional master plan.

Quick checks on the draft of master plan stated that among its goals was to increase the number of people (mode share) using public transport from the current 12 per cent.

According to National Key Result Area reports, it was revealed that in recent decades the mode share of LPT in the morning peak hours has fallen from 34 per cent in the 1980s to between 10 and 12 per cent in 2008.

This share is relatively low compared with other international cities such as Hong Kong (90 per cent), Singapore (63 per cent), and London (55 per cent).

This reduction in LPT reflects the increase of the highway network supply, changes in household characteristics, the affordability of cars and poor quality of public transport.

It was also revealed that most people prefer to drive as it is generally faster to get to the city centre than taking public transport in certain areas.

The LPT master plan aims to enhance accessibility for workers to reach jobs across the region; reduce congestion for private and commercial vehicles to aid reliability; improve LPT system reliability through better maintenance and monitoring of vehicle standards; and provide a bus network which can be accessed within 400 metres by 80 per cent of the population.

The draft also laid out plans and measures to improve the three modes of transportation.

One of them is for the KTM Komuter services to be enhanced and rebranded as metro services to play a greater role in the public transport system of GKL/KV and accommodate freight relief line that will divert freight trains to Port Klang away from Kuala Lumpur.

"The bus network will need to be revised to match the changes in the rail network and development areas. A Driver Training and Testing regime will be implemented in order to improve driver quality standards and SPAD will work with key stakeholders to set up a driver training scheme," reads the plan.

As for taxi service, the plan, among others, proposed more stands in the much-needed locations.

SPAD can be contacted through its customer feedback line at 1800 889 600.

RapidKL buys 470 new buses
By REENA RAJ Thursday November 24, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=631

PETALING JAYA: At least 850 new buses will be required until 2012 by RapidKL to achieve the target of 70% coverage for bus ridership in Klang Valley.

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) said that RapidKL had already purchased 470 buses to achieve the target.

Pemandu said its newly-launched Bus Expressway Transit routes BET7 and BET8, servicing commuters in the Sri Nilam and Semenyih districts to travel to and from the city, was on track.

Since the launch of the two routes in July, BET7 has benefited an average of 254 commuters and BET8 an average of 214 daily.

BET7 and BET8 are in addition to the existing six routes.

The BET service features RapidKL buses utilising existing highways to travel between the selected destinations and the city centre to avoid traffic congestion on more fre-quently-used routes, resulting in faster journeys.

BET7 provides transit between Sri Nilam and Lebuh Ampang using the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), which saves commuters up to 20 minutes of travel time.

The BET8 route offers commuters a shorter travel time between Sri Semenyih and Central Market using both the Grand SAGA and SILK highways.

This route saves commuters 30 to 75 minutes of travel time as previously there were no direct routes between Semenyih and Kuala Lumpur.

The fares for the BET7 and BET8 routes are RM2.50 and RM3.00 respectively.

The introduction of BET under the GTP's Urban Public Transport NKRA in 2010 has significantly reduced travel time for commuters who live in suburban areas that are further away from the city.

ERL on track to complete new link, woo more users
Published: 2011/12/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1fMYRungG



EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) expects better passenger growth after the completion of the 2.2km extension track linking the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) by October next year.

In the first 10 months of this year, ERL carried 13,095 passengers, an increase of 16 per cent from 11,261 in the same period last year.

ERL executive chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh is confident that the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit ridership will improve further once the rail link service is completed. "The link is now 14.2 per cent complete."

Nadzmi, speaking to reporters after the ISO certification ceremony, said the ride between the ERL station at KLIA and KLIA2 will take three minutes.

The company has invested RM1.1 million to undertake several initiatives to improve customers' experience, which included enhancement of fare collections system, e-ticketing system and free Wi-Fi connectivity.

"The initiatives also included the interior refurbishment of 12 KLIA Express trains, scheduled for completion in April next year," he said.

Yesterday, ERL was officially presented the ISO 9001:2008 certification for the scope provision of rail services between KLIA and KL Sentral by the awarding body Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

In his speech earlier, Nadzmi said with the certification, customers are assured that ERL is committed to maintain the highest standards of effectiveness and responsiveness in achieving the company's goal.

ERL is the first train operator in Malaysia to be accorded the ISO certification for total customer satisfaction. Also present was ERL chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor.

Scomi 4-car trains



Scomi wins RM494m job to supply 4-car trains
By Bilqis BahariPublished: 2011/12/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1fMTCcHrQ

KUALA LUMPUR: More city dwellers will be able to ride the newly-upgraded KL Monorail in one go and their journey time on the trains will also be reduced.

With this in mind, 12 sets of new four-car trains will be built and used for the existing monorail under a contract agreement inked between Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) and Scomi Rail Bhd (Scomi).

The RM494 million project is scheduled to be completed by July 2013. The first set of four-car trains will be running starting November 15 2012.

The new four-car trains will be able to load on an average of 118 passengers per car, compared to the existing car-trains that can fit only 107 passengers per car.

Scomi Engineering Bhd chairman Datuk Zainun Aishah Ahmad said the current two-car trains are serving at 35 per cent over capacity and it is projected that this number will increase substantially by 2012.

"To meet this demand, Prasarana has contracted Scomi to double the capacity of the current KL monorail line to 6,400 passengers per hour per direction with the new four-car-trains," she said.

Meanwhile, Scomi group chief executive officer Shah Hakim Zain said besides providing the new four-car trains, Scomi will also improve the individual monorail stations by increasing the length of platforms and improve the current stations condition.

He added that Scomi will install a new signalling system for the trains, so that "it will allow us to move into driverless technology in the future."

He was speaking to reporters at a press conference after the signing ceremony yesterday. Also present was the Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Kong said the project is part of the government's National Key Result Areas, its objective is to increase the ridership capacity for the KL Monorail Line by end-2012 and to enhance the comfort and convenience to KL commuters.

Longer KL Monorail trains for shorter commuting time
Monday December 19, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...141&sec=nation

KUALA LUMPUR: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) will replace its current two-car trains with new four-car trains for the KL Monorail line service.

The agreement was signed on Nov 30 with Scomi Rail Bhd, which will provide the 12 trains that can ferry 6,400 passengers per hour in a single direction.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, who was present at the signing, said the monorail service was currently operating 35% above its intended capacity.

He said the Government decided to double the capacity of the monorail fleet within two years with the new trains as it had foreseen the service risks operating 85% over capacity in the next few years.

Kong said the first 10 trains would begin operating in November next year while the remaining two would be available for service in July 2013.

Under the contract worth RM494mil, Scomi Rail will also upgrade the monorail stations, electrical and mechanical systems, and construct a new depot to accommodate the expected increase in ridership and length of the new trains.

Scomi Group chief executive officer Shah Hakim Zain said the entire project would be completed in July 2013.

Prasarana group managing director Datuk Shahril Mokhtar said commuters could expect shorter travel times once the new trains were operational as they were better designed in terms of performance and efficiency.

Improvements to the monorail service are in line with efforts under the GTP's Urban Public Transport NKRA to significantly enhance urban public transport to encourage higher ridership and less reliance on personal vehicles.
