Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

New Four-Car Monorail Trains Commence Operation Tomorrow
Release Date: Fri, 2014-12-19

KUALA LUMPUR, 19 December -- Boosted by a successful final trial run on Tuesday night, the first two of the new four-car Malaysian-made monorail trains, which had undergone a series of tests runs since May, will roll into operational service tomorrow (20 December), marking a new era in the history of Rapid KL rail service.

Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) and operator of Rapid KL Monorail Line, was given the green light to commence operations by Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD), the regulator of land public transport systems and services in Malaysia.

“We would like to record our appreciation to SPAD for their support and guidance throughout the entire process of testing and commissioning. Passengers’ safety is always the utmost important component in our operations and we are happy that SPAD has given its stamp of approval to proceed operations with our first two sets of four-car trains,” says Rapid Rail Chief Executive Officer, Haji Khairani Mohamed.

While the two new sets of four-car trains commence operations tomorrow, a third set is already undergoing its testing and commissioning programme under the watchful eyes of SPAD, Scomi Engineering and the project manager, Prasarana Integrated Management & Engineering Services (PRIME).

“The fourth set of the new four-car trains is scheduled to be delivered by the end of the month with the remaining nine sets to be delivered in stages next year,” Khairani said, adding that the new sets would be put into operations in stages to provide service along with the current two-car trains.

“The entry of the four-car trains undoubtedly marks a new era for Rapid KL Monorail Line. Apart from doubling its capacity, the new trains are installed with additional features for safety, vibrancy and comfort,” said Khairani, who is also Prasarana’s Group Director for Rail Division.

Apart from new trains, Rapid Rail had also upgraded all its 11 stations by installing universal access features, extension of the stations’ platform as well as constructing a new wing at Bukit Bintang Station and an overhead bridge for direct access to KL Sentral Station from the new Nu Sentral Shopping Complex.

KTM KOMUTER UPDATE:
SOURCE: http://www.myrapid.com.my/media-cent...railing-future

- To encourage more car owners and commuters to utilise KTM Komuter, plans are underway to progressively roll out an additional 1,100 parking bays within these three years, including park and ride facilities at Serdang, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Klang, as well as parkway drop zone at Kampung Dato’ Haron and Batu Tiga.
- KTM Komuter will engage with bus operators to provide feeder buses services to 19 stations; 14 this year, and the remaining five (5) by 2016.
- Commuters will also enjoy more comfortable stations as the Mid Valley station will undergo a major facelift next year (2016) which will see a bigger concourse area, new ticketing counter, and more importantly, universal access features,” Syed Hamid said.

- Seven (7) other KTM Komuter stations will also be upgraded this year (2015) namely Kg. Raja Uda, Teluk Pulai, Bukit Badak, Seri Setia, Tiroi, Labu, and Batang Benar.

Port Klang Line



Seremban Line



- In addition, security at eight (8) high density stations will be enhanced with the setting up of the police beat with auxiliary police at Sg. Buloh, Batu Caves, Bank Negara, KL Sentral, Mid Valley, Bandar Tasek Selatan, Kajang and Subang Jaya stations.

Should the rolling stock of the Kelana Jaya Line and the Ampang Line be extended to (almost) match the length of the stations' platforms more closely, or has it already been done? I know the trains on the Ampang Line are only less than half of the stations' platform length.

Not necessary, because the new trains are of same length as with the current ones (6-car, 84 m long).

Current daily ridership of RapidKL train lines

From The Edge





According to the news, once the LRT extension of Ampang and Kelana Jaya lines complete, total daily ridership will go up to 750,000.

I got the Kelana Jaya Line and the Ampang Line confused with each other on my last post. I meant to say, "I know the trains on the Kelana Jaya Line are only less than half of the stations' platform length." The estimated length of the Kelana Jaya Line's platforms is ~80 m, and the length of the Ampang Line's platforms is (I think) between 85 and 95 m (pretty much similar to or slightly less than the length of the MRT stations).
