Well, it is all about Dr M's plan to please his cronies so KL get such a kind of mixture.

At least KL Monorail is Made in Malaysia but they need better shock absorbers to run the system ....

Different companies (or cronies of you would like to say) have different kind of system ... KL STAR for the one with driver, KL Putra are driverless LRT, KL Monorail for KL Giolden triangle area, KL Kommuter for electgrified Meter gauge commuters and KLExpress for Highspeed railon Standard gauge ....

Khun Wisarut > I would suggest you stop blaming Dr. M for everything since I presume you do not know much bout anything and everything in Malaysia from your previous post.

When KL came out with a masterplan for transportation 2 decades ago.....there aren't any takers as the economic situation then doesn't justify for a metro system in KL. KTM which is the state railway company then came out with the commuter train idea as its rail network covers many suburbs and downtown area of KL. Then came the consortium that comprises of some govt agencies and a few companies that proposes a metro system based on Adtranz's LRT for the eastern and southern route.

Later...another company proposes a more advanced system for the western to eastern route and naturally it was accepted. Then the economic crisis came and they had to built a line that bridges the two major system and to linked up the famous Bukit Bintang area. But to built an underground line would be prohibitively expensive and thus the monorail idea is a perfect one since it could be a tourist attraction too by giving tourist an elevated view of KL off its busy streets below. Initially it was Hitachi's monorail system but since it is too expensive, they've decided to manufacture its own monorail. So it is more of a revolution of rail transportation in KL rather than just simply awarding it to 'cronies'. The right company with the right technology prevails in KL's transportation. In fact it is not uncommon to see multiple systems in a city worldwide. The problem with KL is the integration of all the systems and they are working on it now.

...gotta go now .....I'll elaborate later

It is okay Khun Wisarut. Maybe you're just misinformed about the situation here but no harm done

If Dr. M we're to give everything to his cronies now......he would be living like a king in Malaysia by now. Many would say he have lotsa cronies but the truth is that the benefits given to some companies is because they are the only ones having the capabilities to pull such big ticket projects off. He wouldn't want small companies to do an incompetent job only later to be declared bankrupt.

No....he's not a dictator whom squandrel billions of dollars. If he did.....he would have been toppled from power long time ago and went into exile.

Irregular feeder bus service upsets commuters
Saturday, May 21, 2005





Commuters boarding the bus at
the KL Sentral station.



Commuters have voiced their frustrations over the irregularity and lack of feeder buses servicing the KL Sentral-Pusat Bandar Damansara route especially during peak hours in the morning and evening.

The matter was brought to StarMetro’s attention by a complainant who only wanted to be known as Jessie.

Recently, 100 regular passengers travelling on the route took their grievances to the bus operator Triton Commuter Sdn Bhd, Transport Ministry and Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (LPKP).

They said they were usually forced to wait close to an hour at KL Sentral in the morning and the bus would be packed with passengers from Mont Kiara when it reached Pusat Bandar Damasara in the evening.

Jessie said she was forced to take a taxi to get around the problem.

“It is too expensive to take a taxi on my own. I usually share a taxi with three other passengers. The ride cost us between RM6 and RM7.20 per trip,” she added.

A spokesperson for Triton Commuter said five buses serviced the route at 20 to 25-minute intervals depending on the traffic condition.

“We will be looking into adding more buses to cater to the commuters' needs during peak hours,” the spokesperson added.

UEM in talks with govt on rail project
By Jimmy Yeow, 19 May 2005 10:40 PM




(From left) UEM COO Hussein Abdul Hamid, UEM chairman
Datuk Abu Hassan Kendut, Kuala Lumpur Sentral chairman Shahril Ridza
Ridzuan, UEM MD & CEO Ahmad Pardas Senin and Kuala Lumpur Sentral
CEO Chan Chee Meng take a closer look at a model of Kuala Lumpur
Sentral's latest development project.



United Engineers (Malaysia) Bhd (UEM) is in talks with the government to take over as the main contractor of the RM2.58 billion double tracking rail project between Rawang and Ipoh, says UEM managing director Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin.

We are definitely interested. If considered, we know we have the capability as we are already involved as the sub-contractor for the bridges (in the project), he said on May 19.

Ahmad Pardas said the negotiations with the government were ongoing, but declined to reveal any details. I am not aware if UEM is the only party the government is talking to, to replace DRB-Hicom (Bhd), he added.

Last Saturday, the Transport Ministry announced that it had taken over the project, which has been delayed by at least two years, and that DRB-Hicom would be replaced as the main contractor by another entity.

DRB-Hicom earlier this week said it had not been fully paid for 88% of the civil works completed on the project as well as some RM700 million in variation cost owed by the government.

We have not been offered (the project) yet and it is up to the government when to announce who would take over as the lead contractor, Ahmad Pardas said. We are not asking for the price (of the contract to complete the job) as we have to wait for the government to decide, he added.

Ahmad Pardas was speaking to reporters after UEM signed a sale and purchase agreement with Kuala Lumpur Sentral Sdn Bhd for the purchase of a plot of land at RM54 million to house the new UEM Group headquarters at Kuala Lumpur Sentral.

He said the 29-storey headquarters to cost RM144 million, including the land cost, would be completed by early 2008. It includes a 23-storey office space, five-storey car park and ground floor. It will finance the project from internal funds.

Kuala Lumpur Sentral chairman Shahril Ridza Ridzuan said the company was undertaking the largest commercial development at the site with gross development value of RM1.2 billion.

The projects to be completed by 2008 include Plaza Sentral's phase 2 premier office suites, Lot N office tower, Suasana Sentral Loft condominiums and a shopping mall as well as service apartments.

Public Transport Commission Will Be Set Up Soon
May 19, 2005 15:56 PM



KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 (Bernama) -- The public transport commission which is aimed to regulate and improve the public transport system in the Klang Valley will be set up soon, deputy Minister of Transport, Datuk Douglas Uggah Embas said.

He said it was expected to be commissioned this year considering that traffic in major urban centres particularly in Kuala Lumpur would continue to grow rapidly.

"For the past 10 years, it is estimated about RM14 billion was invested to upgrade the urban transport system in Klang Valley," he told reporters after opening a conference on urban transport, here.

Uggah said despite the high capital investment to develop and upgrade the urban transport system, the usage of urban public transport had been decreasing from 34 percent in 1985 to a mere 16 percent in 2003.

"This does not seem to be a good trend when compared with other major developed cities like Seoul (60 percent), Singapore (56 percent) and Tokyo (49 percent)," he said.

In view of this scenario, he said, measures were currently being undertaken to restructure urban public transport system in the Klang Valley.

These measures, according to Uggah included the taking over operations and assets of LRT systems and bus services namely Intrakota and Park May.

The operation of these services is currently run by government owned operating company while the assets are vested separately under a government owned asset company.

In the last two decades there have been phenomenal developments in land transport systems in Kuala Lumpur, specifically the development of highways, amalgamation of bus operators and the operations of integrated urban rail systems in KTM Commuter, STAR LRT, PUTRA LRT, Express Rail Link and KL Monorail.

Since the operations of the urban rail system, the ridership for this system had shown increase in number of passengers reflecting the encouraging preference of users to commute using the urban rail system.

According to Uggah this is evidenced by ridership for PUTRA LRT system that has increased from 56 million passengers in 2003 to 58 million passengers in 2004.

In the case of STAR LRT system the ridership had increased from 39 million passengers in 2003 to 43 million passengers in 2004.

The Express Rail Link's ridership has also increased from 2.7 million passengers in 2003 to 3.6 million in 2004.

The Monorail which started commercial operations on Aug 31, 2003 recorded a ridership of 2.9 million passengers for the four month in 2003 and 12 million passengers in 2004.

The Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station integrates the urban rail stations which consists of KTM Commuter, PUTRA LRT, KTM Intercity and KL City Air Terminal.

"To further promote and provide accessibility and facilitate greater use of urban public transport the government has developed and will continue to develop integrated transport interchanges and transit networks in Kuala Lumpur such as the interchanges between STAR LRT, PUTRA LRT and Monorail systems," he said.

He said the bus and taxi terminals that integrated with urban rail transport system would also be developed with the objective of reducing traffic congestion.

In realization of greater need and demand for single common ticketing system, for the ease of user, he said the government was currently looking into detail technical aspects of introducing the single ticketing system for all urban transport operators.

The feeder bus services, he said had been enhanced to ferry passengers effectively from residential areas to the LRT stations.

"Parking facilities are being upgraded constantly, wherever possible, to promote the park and ride concept," he added.

Going places with ticketing system
Sunday May 22, 2005
BY LEONG SHEN-LI





WORKING WELL: Mohd Azman demonstrating his multicard
electronic farecard readers, which are being used for the government's
common ticketing system project.



LISTEN to Pradonet Sdn Bhd chief executive director Mohd Azman Nasir talk about the challenges he faced setting up his business and you would think that he was dealing with either state secrets or something illegal.

Although technology for his business has been in existence for over 20 years, Azman and his team still had to start from scratch when they set out to provide local IT solutions for automatic fare collection and ticketing systems for the public transport market in Malaysia.

And even after they became successful, Azman says, Malaysians still had to be convinced that his company’s products were as good as, if not better, than those manufactured by foreign players.

“The secrets of the business (the technical know-how) are well-guarded,” Azman says.

“Because of this, we had no choice but to start from the very beginning and catch up through our own research and development.”

In 2002, Azman together with two others decided to try and break the tight grip a small group of foreign companies had over the Malaysian market.

Having been involved in various public transport projects in Britain and Malaysia – he was a senior manager in Kuala Lumpur's Putra-LRT (now Rapid KL’s Putraline LRT system) – Azman provided the expertise in public transport while chief technology officer Rozaimi Shafri handled the technical details.

Azman’s previous experience in the public transport sector made him realise how dependent the local operators were on foreign suppliers.

“We had to go back to the supplier for every little thing, sometimes even for something as simple as changing the fare structure. That has cost and time implications,” he explains.

The Malaysian operator also had to rely on the supplier for after-sales service, spare parts, repairs and maintenance.

There were also cases where certain parts were no longer manufactured, leaving the operators in a lurch especially when they wanted to open new stations or add new machines for existing stations.

“And if you want these giant players to modify something to suit local conditions, you might as well forget it,” Azman says.

With local providers, he says, the above problems will more or less disappear.

“Furthermore, because we are not saddled by legacy issues, our solutions are probably more up-to-date, and designs more modern,” he adds.

But the price tag will be the main selling point for local companies like Azman’s.

“We can do the job for the same standards, if not better, for up to 40% less,” he says.

Despite such plus points, he says most Malaysian operators still prefer to buy foreign systems, often merely because of the weight of an established brand name.

“I guess there is always some risk involved when you move away from a well-known brand and many people are not willing to take such risks,” says Azman, whose big break came with the government’s push for a common ticket for all public transport systems in the Klang Valley.

The project will allow Touch ‘n Go cards to be used to pay fares for the KTM Komuter, monorail, light rail transit (LRT), Express Rail Link and, ultimately, the buses.

Besides being the systems integrator, Pradonet also worked closely with Iris Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd, which handled the million-ringgit project, to design new electronic farecard readers.

These have now been installed at the turnstiles of KTM Komuter, monorail and ERL stations (which, unlike the LRT, still do not accept Touch ‘n Go cards).

The job has been completed but the system is still not up and running due to some outstanding commercial issues between Rangkaian Segar Sdn Bhd (Touch ‘n Go’s operator) and the public transport companies.

“The system has undergone initial tests and worked very well. The moment the parties agree, it can start operating,” says Azman.

What is unique about the system is that the readers can read different cards. (All existing card readers, including those used at toll plazas, are only made to read Touch ‘n Go cards.) This is because the readers have additional slots for security chips. Similar to the SIM cards in mobile telephones, these enable the readers to read different cards.

“This means that operators and users have options and are not restricted to just one farecard system,” Azman explains.

Azman has also come up with a booking office machine, which is basically a ticketing machine for counter use.

The machine is capable of using tickets that are manufactured by other companies, allowing operators to replace existing machines without any problem.

“This solves the problem where foreign companies no longer manufacture certain types of machines,” Azman says.

Other products in the pipeline include fare gates and other machinery related to ticketing and fare collection.

Azman is extremely grateful to Iris for providing the support that he needed as a start-up company. And it is also with Iris that he hopes Pradonet can move to markets beyond Malaysia.

“We would have gone nowhere without Iris. Now, we hope we will be able to go places with it,” Azman says.

Last two LRT firms accept Touch 'n Go
Updated : 12-07-2005
Media : The Star
Story By : LEONG SHEN-LI



The long-awaited common ticket¡± for all rail-based public transport in the Klang Valley will become reality with the last two operators agreeing to accept Touch 'n Go cards for fare payment.

The operators of KL Monorail (KL Monorail System Sdn Bhd) and KLIA Ekspres (Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd) have agreed to use the card along with KTM Komuter (KTM Bhd), Putra LRT and Star LRT (both operated by Rapid KL).

KL Monorail said commuters would be able to use the cards at their stations from August, while ERL has resumed testing the card readers at KL Sentral for implementation in the near future.

This development follows a front-page report in The Star on April 22 which said that RM10mil worth of Touch 'n Go equipment installed at KTM Komuter, monorail and ERL stations had been lying idle for more than one-and-a-half years.

This was because Touch 'n Go operator Rangkaian Segar Sdn Bhd and the five operators could not agree on the commission rate.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy responded to the article by saying he no longer wanted to listen to excuses as to why there was a delay in the implementation of the Touch 'n Go card as a common ticket.

KTM Komuter began using the card on July 1.

Prior to that, only Putra LRT accepted the card.

Star LRT adopted the system last year after it came under the same management as Putra LRT.

Sources said The Star's report and subsequent statements from Chan prompted the parties to arrive at ¡°an agreed commission rate¡± that was ¡°in between what the two sides wanted.

With the KL Monorail and ERL accepting the card, buses remain the only mode of public transport in the Klang Valley yet to accept the card for fare payment.

An intergrated ticketing system using a stored value card is great.

The name whilst appealing has a dual meaning as in many Eng speaking countries as 'touch and go' means that something is 50/50 or the outcome of an event is just possible but not assured. Not the sort of connetation that you would want commuters to have!
Not being a Malaysian resident, but an irregular vistor, I wonder if the phrase has the same meaning there ?
