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.

The coolest thing about this monorail is that it has underground stations like a full metro. The only other monorail I'm aware of like that is the one in Hiroshima.

Maybe you meant Tokyo, which indeed has a large underground section. Hiroshima's aerial lift/monorail route is all above-ground.

Not really. Hiroshima Astram line has 3 underground stations:
Johoku, Kancho-mae and Hondori terminal.

Sorry, but Astram line in Hiroshima is definitely NOT a monorail, but rubber-tired trains running on two parallel tracks,

(a bit like french system VAL of Matra/Siemens)
