Rapid KL launches new bus routes
Saturday September 10, 2005
By SUEN ONG






IT WILL be a breeze for residents from densely populated Sri Petaling, Pandan Indah and Bandar Tasik Selatan to travel into the city centre when Rapid KL’s integrated bus and rail service goes full swing this month.

A total of 14 new buses have been mobilised to ply four new routes currently without any bus service.

The new services, which operate from 6am to 11.30pm, will ferry commuters to stations along the Ampang and Sri Petaling LRT lines.

Rapid KL chief operating officer (buses) Mohd Ali Mohd Nor said the buses were scheduled to arrive every 15 minutes, and for travellers’ convenience, the bus-stops were located not more than 250m from their doorsteps.

CEO Rein Westra said: “These four new routes mark the first phase of the company’s rail backbone plan which is to feed more people from housing areas to the LRT stations near them, via bus service.”

According to Westra, there are more than 12,000 people residing in the vicinity of Route 301 and 55,000 over at the southern side of the Pandan Indah LRT station, which is Route 302 (refer to map).

He said residents in other parts of Klang Valley could expect a similar service within the next six to nine months, in line with the company’s objectives to reduce travel time by providing efficient bus and rail services.

ERL celebrate 10 millionth passenger
Kuala Lumpur, 19 September 2005



Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB), the concessionaire for the high-speed KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit train services, recently welcomed the 10 millionth passenger using its train services. The celebration ended the three-month "Are You the ONE?" search for the 10 millionth passenger.

Passengers travelling on the 10:00am KLIA Ekspres train departing from KLIA to KL Sentral were pleasantly surprised by an announcement on board informing them that someone on that train would be the lucky 10tn millionth passenger as they walked through the gates in KL Sentral, and would take home two Malaysia Airlines Business Class return air tickets to New York and 100 free trips on KLIA Ekspres.

To heighten the excitement, the passengers were not told who had won on that day, but the five passengers closest to the count would be invited back to a Celebratory Dinner where the winner would be announced.

On arrival in KL Sentral, all passengers onboard the wining train were greeted by traditional Malaysian kompang and a silat performance, followed by refreshments.

This event also concluded the Guess The ONE Date contest, where participants tried to guess the date, time and direction in which the 10 millionth passenger would be travelling. The contest, which ran from 1 August 2005 till 15 September 2005, offered two Air France-KLM Business Class return air tickets to Jakarta and 100 free trips on KLIA Ekspres.

At the press conference, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, Chief Executive Officer of ERLSB, noted that the 99.7% service reliability record was instrumental in building the public's confidence in both the KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit services.

"We are proud to welcome our 10 millionth passenger in just three years of service. This is a result of the 14,000 passengers daily on both train services who know that we really are the fastest way to travel" he said.

ERL Confident Of More Than 20 Pct Share Of Passenger Traffic
Updated : 03-12-2005
Media : Bernama



PUTRAJAYA, Nov 3 (Bernama) -- ERL Sdn Bhd, which provides the speed train service to the KL International Airport (KLIA), is confident of raking in and maintaining more than 20 per cent market share of the 22 million-passenger traffic for the sector in the next five years.

Its chief executive officer, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, said today that this year the company achieved 18 per cent share of the total traffic compared with 14 to 15 per cent since the service started three-and-a-half years ago.

"The ERL commuter traffic has been encouraging both in the express service as well as in the KLIA transit service," he told reporters after the launch of ERL's train service-cum-travel package, "Discover Putrajaya with KLIA Transit", here by Tourism Malaysia Director-General Datuk Kamaruddin Siaraf.

Currently, up to 5,800 commuters use the ERL express service while another 14,000 use the KLIA transit service daily, he added.

"We witnessed a lot of commuter traffic using the Bandar Tasik Selatan, Putrajaya and Salak Tinggi ERL stations," he said.

Aminuddin said the Formula A1 race at the Sepang International Circuit near KLIA last month had contributed to ERL's commuter traffic and he expected the Asean Summit at the KL Convention Centre starting next week to do the same.

Earlier, in his speech, he said the Discover Putrajaya package was started six months ago on weekends and in just two months, over 1,300 visitors had signed up for the first edition of the package.

He said the ERL was teaming up with Tourism Malaysia, tour operators and agents in promoting the package not only in Malaysia but also other places worldwide where Tourism Malaysia had operations.

With the school holidays this month, he expected more than 2,000 transit passengers to sign up for the package.

Under the package, for a mere RM25, a KLIA transit commuter will be taken on a coach ride to Istana Melawati, Mercu Tanda Putrajaya, the government office complexes, Perdana Putra complex, the Boulevard and the National Millennium Monument.

Commuters To Enjoy Better Integration At Monorail And Rapid KL



KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 15 (Bernama) -- KL Monorail and Rapid KL transport commuters can now enjoy interchanging facilities with the completion of three covered and elevated walkways.

The RM6 million walkways, which include escalators and pedestrian crossings, were opened 18 days ahead of schedule Thursday by Deputy Transport Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Azlan Ibni Sultan Abu Bakar.

The three walkways connect KL Monorail's Titiwangsa Station and Rapid KL's Titiwangsa Station, KL Monorail's Bukit Nanas Station and Rapid KL's Dang Wangi Station and KL Monorail's Hang Tuah Station and Rapid KL's Hang Tuah Station.

Speaking to reporters later Tengku Azlan said the building of the three walkways were fully financed by the Transport Ministry.

KL Monorail System Sdn Bhd took a year to build the linkages which were completed on Dec 8 this year.

SPNB to invest RM2b on trains for Putra LRT over next 3 years
By Ashwin Raman, 03 Jan 2006 9:52 PM

Nordin Baharuddin at the handover of 120 new buses




SPNB chief executive officer, Shaipudin Harun, said they were in discussions with potential sponsors for the purchase and a deal would likely be concluded by the first quarter of this year, with the first batch of trains arriving in the next 18 to 20 months.

He said the additional trains were to fully utilise Putra’s existing network. SPNB owns the public transport infrastructure for both buses and rail operated by Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (Rapid KL).

Rapid KL operates the Intrakota and CityLiner buses as well as the Putra and Star LRT systems.

In addition to the trains, Shaipudin said SPNB will spend up to RM280 million this year to add 600 new buses to its existing fleet of 1,237 buses in a move to increase the frequency of public transportation in the Klang Valley. The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Out of the 600 buses, he said SPNB will purchase up to 200 compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, in line with the government’s efforts to promote a greener and healthier environment.

CNG is made by compressing purified natural gas and is considered to be an environmentally cleaner alternative to gasoline or diesel, which all buses currently run on.

Shaipudin said CNG buses would cost about RM600,000 a unit but would save RM25,000 in fuel costs a year and would be profitable in the long run. He said that the CNG buses would be added to Rapid KL’s fleet by the end of this year.

"Funding for these purchases will come partly from the government. We will also go to the local capital markets. It will be a mixture of debt and equity,” he told reporters at the handover of 120 new buses to Rapid KL in Petaling Jaya on Jan 3.

The 120 buses, Shaipudin said, were ordered last year and did not include the 600 buses SPNB planned on purchasing this year.

He said the cost of the 120 buses, purchased from Mtrans Bus Sdn Bhd, was RM210 million and the buses will be used by Rapid KL to implement the first phase of a new bus network in the city centre by the middle of this year.

KL bus and rail overhaul
Minderjeet Kaur
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3:


The public transport system here and in Petaling Jaya will be overhauled at a cost of RM2 billion and work will commence this year.

The plan calls for putting more buses on the road and extending the commuter rail service.

"We are going all out to get people out of their cars andon to buses and trains," Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad chief executive officer Shaipudin Shah Harun said today.

SPNB, which owns both Kuala Lumpur’s light rail transit and buses under the name RapidKL, will streamline the existing public transport infrastructure.

Some features of the plan:

• Improving bus service.

• Extending the Putra LRT rail service to Subang Jaya and the Star LRT service to Old Klang Road.

• Adding carriages to the existing Putra LRT’s two-carriage trains and building up to 12 new lines.













The plan was announced by Shaipudin after he handed over 120 buses, costing RM43.2 million, to RapidKL.

With the new buses, SPNB has delivered 202 buses to RapidKL.

He said only 15 per cent of the people who travelled to work in the city daily were using public transport.

"We aim to double Kuala Lumpur’s bus ridership in two years to bring it on par with Bangkok, but we will still be way behind Singapore’s 60 per cent," he said.

RapidKL’s data show that about 1.5 million people drive to the city centre and only about 500,000 use public transport.

The data show that 180,000 commute by bus, while 190,000 take the Putra LRT, exceeding its capacity by 40 per cent.

Another 120,000 go by Star LRT, which is under-utilised by 66 per cent.

To attract more commuters to use the trains, Shaipudin said the existing rail services would be extended by 10 to 15km.

He said part of the funding would come from the Government and the rest would be raised from the capital market.

Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (RapidKL) chief executive officer Rein Westra said by the end of next year there would be 1,500 buses serving Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

A new ticketing system will also be introduced to integrate the bus and train services.

The City Shuttle Network, which will ensure everyone is within 250m of a bus stop or an LRT station, covers five new hubs. These are Pekeliling, KLCC, KL Sentral, Central Market and Taman Maluri.

"The service will start in the middle of this month and we are talking about a bus service every five minutes," Westra said.

RapidKL now has a fleet of 1,117 buses serving 15 routes.
