SSP MRT ground breaking marks another milestone for KL
The Star | Thursday, 15 September 2016

KUALA LUMPUR: The ground breaking of the RM32bil mass rapid transit (MRT) Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line today marks another milestone for Greater Kuala Lumpur to achieve 40% of public transport model share within the next 15 years.

As at the end of last year, the city’s public transport model share stood at 25%.

The SSP line is the second of three MRT lines planned to promote the use of greener public transport systems for the capital.

The first MRT line, the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK), which is being built at a cost of RM23bil, is now 89% completed.

SSP line will have greater daily ridership of 530,000 people, while SBK line will see daily ridership of 440,000 people,” MRT Corp director of strategic communications and stakeholder relations Datuk Najmuddin Abdullah told a briefing.

Najmuddin said the tender process of the SSP line was still ongoing, with 23 work packages already awarded to date.

The total length of the SSP line will be 52.2km, with 13.5km underground portion. The line will have a total of 24 stations, of which 11 stations will be underground.

Hi all,

I am a newbie so not allowed to start my own thread. Will be visiting KL in a month and excited to actually see the city this time. I have been to KL a dozen times in my life but always just visiting family in the suburbs. This time around I am making plans to actually visit different parts of the city and meet with folks in the community.

Anyway, we are staying at the Hilton in Petaling Jaya. Short walk to Asia Jaya or Taman Jaya LRT stations and then I assume a speedy and convenient ride to Bangsar or KLCC, two areas of interest for me. I have three questions and also welcome any suggestions and advice at all.

1) Is it quick to get around on LRT? There is a glitch with google maps transit in KL and (I believe) it is showing a default and incorrect transit schedule on LRT. Basically it looks like it takes 55 minutes to ride anywhere on the LRT, whether 3 stops or 15.

2) Do you recommend uber or should I download grab? I use uber frequently in the US and wonder if I should just continue in KL. I will need to get to suburban destinations like relatives' homes and Sin Choi Wah restaurant (for a wedding reception) and figure this is much easier than using transit.

3) Any must sees or must dos?

Thanks!!

1. Its quick to get around with LRT as you can avoid traffic jam. The frequency of LRT train is 1-2 minute during peak hour and 5-10 minute during non-peak. I would assume that 55 minute is the end to end journey time of the whole line.

2. Uber is available in KL and it is very convenient.

3. KLCC, Batu Caves, Petaling Street, Bukit Bintang, Merdeka Square.....

Thank you! Petaling Street looks like it is a small strip in Chinatown, Merdeka Square is a square, but where exactly are you referring to with Bukit Bintang? The shopping district? Just trying to get a visual on the map.

Yea Petaling Street is a China Town. Many tourist go there however local Malaysian rarely go there.

Merdeka Square is a square. It is just infront of the famous Sultan Abdul Samad Building. That is one of the iconic building of KL/Malaysia.

Bukit Bintang is a shopping areas... almost 10+ shopping mall there.

Also you can go to Brickfield (a.k.a Little India), Malaysia National Mosque and Putrajaya (capital of Malaysia). Putrajaya is a nice place but you will definitely need a car. Uber would do the job.
