Putrajaya (/pʊtrɑːdʒɑːjə/), officially the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, is a planned city and the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia's national capital, and is the seat of the King and Parliament as well as the home of the country's commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the brainchild of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad. In 2001, Putrajaya became Malaysia's third Federal Territory after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.

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!!
The LRT services has been upgraded quite recently so you could go to more places despite some teething problems, and unless you're in a rush, you won't really feel that taking LRT is time-consuming

As for Uber and Grab, I personally recommend Grab because they're using legit taxis instead of personal car. There are issues about accidents and whatnot so Grab is pretty much a middle ground; you have the convenience (as well as not getting cheated) of Uber and insurance coverage as well as generally more professional drivers that you get from traditional taxis

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.
Noted. Thanks!!

SPAD to study tram services for KL

Quote:
The study will focus on actual demands of passengers, economic projections, as well as the financial and technical measures required.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will conduct a feasibility study on the Kuala Lumpur tram service as an alternative mode of public transport in the capital that is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

According to the Land Public Transport Transformation Journey (PTPAD) 2010-2015, the study will ensure seamless connectivity to ease traffic congestion in the city centre as the tram was more efficient and environmentally friendly.

I think they should use the trams as the BRTs and NOT make the same "corporate" mistakes that's the Sunway BRT...

Maybe also create connectivity in the suburbs with that...and linking putrajaya(?)

KUALA LUMPUR | Public Transport

Time for upgrade KTM Komuter
Klang Valley Double Tracking (KVDT) project was expected to be completed in November 2019
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/10/1...plete-end-2017

The project involved the preparation of the new tracks and replacing old equipment, the installation of radio systems, the upgrading of 16 stations and the construction of a substation in Sentul, here to generate additional electricity supply and also to increase the frequency of trains.

The KVDT project will be implemented in four phases such as the phase 1A from Rawang to Simpang Batu; Phase 1B (Kuala Lumpur-Simpang Port Klang); phase 2 (Simpang Batu - Kuala Lumpur); Phase 3 (Sentul - Simpang Batu) and phase 4 (Simpang Port Klang-Salak Selatan). --BERNAMA

One card for all public transport
BY RAZAK AHMAD Tuesday, 18 October 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...l-and-traffic/

PETALING JAYA: A single card will be all you need – and you can ride all rail and bus services in the Klang Valley and park at nearly 4,000 spots at transit stations. Two new integrated transport terminals will also mean ease of travel without having to deal with traffic jams.

These are among the things commuters can look forward to in the next few years.

Other than the ongoing light rail transit (LRT) and mass rapid transit (MRT) projects currently under construction, a slew of other initiatives will be rolled out from next year to 2020 under the Government’s plans to boost public transport use in Greater Kuala Lumpur from 20% last year to 30% by the end of 2020.

According to the “Land Public Transport Transformation Journey 2010-2015” report which was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yesterday, an Integrated Common Payment System (ICPS) is targeted for introduction in 2018.

The ICPS is a unified ticketing system managed by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) which aims to allow travel on all bus, rail, metro and monorail networks using a single smartcard.

Additional information on SPAD’s website said commuters using the ICPS could save money as special discounts will be given for customised products, suited to each group of commuters.

The commission expects an estimated one million passengers to use the ICPS daily in its first year of operation.

To make it easier for commuters to access rail services, the report said that 3,955 new parking spots will be prepared by 2019 to complement all the rail lines operating by then.

“Also by 2019, there will be some 30 Park-n-Ride stations across the city at high concentration areas,” the report said.

To further boost transport services, two new integrated terminals, namely the Terminal Bersepadu Gombak (TBG) and Terminal Bersepadu Sungai Buloh (TBSB) will be operational by 2020. These terminals will integrate bus and rail links.

Unlike the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Bandar Tasik Selatan, which was fully funded by the Government, both TBG and TBSB will be developed and operated via concessions and private funding, respectively.


The report said SPAD would also issue a request for proposal by early next year to build the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along the Federal Highway for the Klang-KL line.

Under the BRT service, buses will travel on an exclusive lane separate from normal traffic.

In addition to the KL-Klang line, 10 other BRT lines have been identified. They are KL-Ampang, KL-Taman Melawati, KL-Puchong, Ampang-Kepong, Alam Damai-Kerinchi, Kinrara-Damansara, Putrajaya-Kajang, Putrajaya-Putra Heights, Shah-Alam-Putra Heights and Kota Damansara-Shah Alam.

To make it easier for commuters to know bus routes, 3,500 additional Bus Stop Info Panels will be installed at selected bus stops and key hubs in Greater Kuala Lumpur next year. This year will see a total of 3,000 such panels being set up.

To further expand feeder bus services, 22 new routes will be introduced when all 31 MRT stations start operations in June 2017.

Najib launched the report after opening a symposium on “Public Transport: Transforming the Nation” here organised by SPAD.
