KUALA LUMPUR: Under the National Key Result Area (NKRA) policy, the Government wants the use of public transport in the Klang Valley to reach 25% or 600,000 passengers during peak hours, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said the initiative to enhance the national public transport (NKRA-UPT) had begun two years ago, and for the comfort of the people, the Barisan Nasional government had invested RM1.9bil to acquire 38 sets of sophisticated MyKomuter trains which would be absorbed into the KTMB services in stages.

Muhyiddin said this initiative would not stop at the Klang Valley but would be extended throughout the country.

"To date, the Malaysian government has received 16 sets of MyKomuter from China, where four of them had already undergone stringent safety tests under the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) while the remaining 12 trains are undergoing tests and commissioning," he said in his speech when launching the MyKomuter set which began operations from KL Sentral Thursday.

All these trains had passed the stringent standards set by the international commissioning agency, namely the TUV (Technical Inspection Association), he said.

Members of the public using the MyKomuter service would receive free coupons to board the train worth RM2 which could be used for a six-month period, he said.

KTMB will also provide a 50% discount for the purchase of weekly tickets, and free transport for students wearing uniforms, the handicapped, and senior citizens for six months.

"Continuous efforts by the Transport Ministry, particularly the NKRA Unit and the KTMB in raising the quality of public amenities, especially the railway, reflects the continued concern of the Government on the importance of public transport in the country," he said.

He said that the use of KTM Komuter during peak hours had reached 1.4 times the passenger capacity limit as the commuter coach could only carry 150 passengers but now it had to carry 200 passengers at any given time.

"This causes discomfort to the passengers and also resulted in several other problems cropping up including maintenance, delays in scheduling and the cancellation of services. As a result, consumers chose to opt for their private vehicles as the mode of transport for daily tasks especially during the peak hours between 7am and 9am," he said. - Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: The public using the KTM Komuter will enjoy better service when four units of six-car-set (SCS) trains owned by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) start operating this weekend.

KTMB corporate communications unit senior manager, Mohd Fazil Ismail said the SCS train was capable of carrying up to 1,100 commuters one-way compared to 400 with the existing sets.

"A key issue for public complaints against the KTM Komuter service is the delay problem and long waiting period. But we (KTM) believe that with the introduction of the SCS train, all these problems will be overcome," he said.
According to him, KTMB would have 38 sets of SCS trains and to date, 16 sets had been received while the remaining 22 would be acquired in stages until June this year.
He was speaking to reporters who were brought to experience the SCS train ride on the KL Sentral-Kajang-KL Sentral route.
He said the SCS train service had cost RM1.894 billion, with each set worth RM49 million.

The service, expected to be launched by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin this Thursday, is part of the National Key Result Area (NKRA) programme to improve the quality of urban transport services.

Fazil said KTMB also planned to implement the schedule of arrival every 10 minutes during peak hours when all 38 sets of SCS trains had been acquired.
"Our target is to reduce the waiting period. For April and May, the targeted waiting time is 15 minutes and for June, 10 minutes when all the 38 sets have been obtained.

"The number of passengers is also expected to increase to 200,000 daily when the service has improved."

Fazil said the SCS trains made by Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Company (ZELC) of China came with several special features such as a more ergonomic seating and standing space, three lines of hand rail for standing commuters and more comfortable space for disabled persons.

He said the trains also had improved safety features such as three closed-circuit television cameras in each coach, stairs to disembark in emergency situations and a better ventilation system. -- BERNAMA

KUALA LUMPUR: The upgrading works on the KL monorail stations is 27 per cent completed.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd's media affairs manager Azhar Ghazali said the upgrading of Medan Tuanku, Imbi, and Raja Chulan stations, which is part of the fleet expansion project, commenced last September.

"Work at the Tun Sambathan, Maharajalela and KL Sentral stations started last November, while work on remaining five stations started in October last year.

"The stations need to be upgraded to cater for the four-car trains due to the increased ridership.

"Traffic and announcement signages including flagmen, blinkers and notices have been put in place to facilitate traffic flow and public safety," he said, adding that the upgrade works are expected to be completed in July next year.

On the design of the new monorail cars which was posted online by Transit (The Association For The Improvement Of Mass Transit) on its website, he said the matter is being looked into.

Transit posted pictures of the new four-car train in two different schemes -- blue and red, with green coloured passenger seats.

It was reported that the project would improve services by increasing the capacity of the trains and improve safety on station platforms.

Scomi Rail Bhd was awarded the RM494 million project for 12 new four-car trains.

The first four trains are expected to start operations on Nov 15.

The new trains will double the capacity of the KL monorail line to 6,400 passengers per hour per direction.

KL Monorail is currently using 12 two-car trains which can accommodate about 200 people per trip and has a daily ridership of 70,000.

The two-car trains are running at 35 per cent over capacity and the ridership is projected to increase.

The upgrade plan will include the installation of automated gates on the platform of the monorail stations which would only open when the train arrives.

It's great to hear. I used to transit from KLCC to monorail and I have to walk passing a small martket to get there.

How's the current passenger experience transiting to monorail?

KUALA LUMPUR: KUALA LUMPUR: LIGHT Rail Transit and monorail networks will begin operating today as full integrated stations, allowing commuters to use a single ticketing system when travelling between the two networks.

Prasarana Rail Division group director Khairani Mohamed said this was the second phase of Prasarana's Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) system.

"The LRT for the Ampang and Kelana Jaya lines, and KL Monorail will be fully integrated, starting today (yesterday). People can enjoy the convenience of changing lines within the integrated stations and exiting only at their final destination."

Khairani said the move will effectively upgrade the Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa stations as integrated platforms for the KL Monorail and Ampang LRT.

Masjid Jamek will serve as the integrated station for the LRT lines between Ampang and Kelana Jaya.

While integration works for the Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa stations have been completed, Khairani said there would still be on-going construction work at both sites.

"These are purely renovation works," he said.

Launched in November last year, the first phase of the AFC integrated ticketing system successfully linked the Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT lines with Masjid Jamek as the integrated station.

Under the AFC system, the old Stored Value Ticket (SVT) was rebranded as MyRapidCard.

MyRapidCard allows commuters to add value in the cards at ticketing vending machines (TVMs). Commuters can also purchase single journey tokens at the TVMs.

The new AFC system also allows the usage of Touch 'n Go cards to commute within its network.

Worse than before, as there is an ongoing construction of commercial complex between KL Sentral and the monorail station. The market is no longer there.

However, such problem might be resolved by next year when the construction is complete.

The "MY" is cheesy, overused and tacky.
