With the new ERL ticketing system, are they going to make it TnG compatible?
Currently, only accepted contactless cards are Visa/Mastercards, right?

I have no idea on that, though I do think it should be TnG compatible.

ERL accepts both Visa and TnG.

In fact I took ERL last week using TnG card

I get confused with KL rapid transit because it seems both the KJ and Amoang lines are called LRT but is the the KJ line not Bombardier ART like Vancouver SkyTrain?

What is the ridership on the KJ line and is it being extended and by when? Also am I right in understanding that the KJ line now runs 4 MK11 cars ie 132 meter trains? One MK11 is 35 meters I believe and the most we run here in Vancouver is 2 MK11 trains but the Expo SkyTrain Line is having it's stations expanded so that by 2020 the line will have 100 meter stations and run 3 MK11 cars.

Do you have any photos of the new MK11 trains preferably the entire train so I can see the total length? For some reason you MK11 trains always appear wider than ours although I'm sure they're not.

Sorry but I didn't want to go back and read every post from the last 6 months.

Also, I'm a big monorail fan, are you extending it? I understand you are doubling the train lengths so how large will the monorail trains be ?

I know these are a lot of questions but I find the mix of transit technology in KL quite interesting. Many thanks for any info you can provide.

Kelana Jaya line = 4-car Bombardier Advanced Rapid Transit

Ampang line = 6-car EMU built by Adtranz, new trains for the line will be supplied by CSR Zhuzhou

Both lines feature trains of narrow width, 2.65 m wide.

KJ line currently runs 67 metre long 4 car Bombardier ART Mk II. Width is only 2.65 metres.



All stations on the Kelana Jaya line, both existing and the future ones are capable to handling trains up to 67 metres long. Both LRT lines are being extended, the extension project shall be opened in phases, in 2015.

Kelana Jaya line is 29 km long at the moment, it will be 46 km long in 2015 when the 17 km extension completes.

Ampang line is 27 km long at the moment, it will be 44.7 km long in 2015 when the 17.7 km long extension completes.

The current project for KL Monorail is the introduction of 4-car long monorail on the existing line. The new monorail set will be 45.3 m long, 3.08 m wide. An extension of the existing monorail line had been proposed. The proposed extension of the monorail line may add 8 km and 9 stations, southwest of the current line.

The other current rail project is Sungai Buloh-Kajang Mass Rapid Transit line (MRT). The line will feature wider metro trains. 4-car (89 m) long, 3 metre wide driverless trains. The train model for this MRT line will be Siemens Inspiro.

The future mix of Klang Valley rapid transit system will be like this:

- MRT
- LRT
- Monorail
- KTM Komuter suburban train
- BRT

When did this happen? Last time I visited KL the ERL refused to accept TnG cards over usage fees/implementation costs?

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Seems like your MK11 trains are different than ours. Ours only have one articulated section so to get a 70 meter train requires 2 MK11 trains not the one longer one like yours.

Mass transit in Western countries tend to be peak orientated so flexibility in carriage length is important in their operations.

Ridership on Kelana Jaya line:

Sources :

http://www.mot.gov.my/my/Publication...sia%202011.pdf
http://www.mot.gov.my/my/Statistics/...202012/2.9.pdf

Kelana Jaya line

2006 = 155,471
2007 = 156,069
2008 = 159,365
2009 = 152,274
2010 = 159,007
2011 = 187,393
2012 (Q1 - Q3) = 193,026

Kelana Jaya line is the busiest rapid transit line in Klang Valley. Currently it is 29 km long.

When the extension completes, its length will be 46 km, daily ridership may rise to about 292,000.

A future analysis predicts that Kelana Jaya line may handle up to 496,000 passengers per day.

Nice pictures. Its great to see new construction!

I was wondering if anyone has seen any new 4 car trains on the KL Monorail? I was told that new trainsets would be delivered starting November 2012, but I haven't heard anything about it yet. When I was there in October, they were in the process of lengthening all of the stations to accommodate the longer trains. They were also building a new maintenance and storage facility next to the old one somewhat near KL Sentral Station.

Any news would be appreciated.
