Anyone have any scanned copies of the older RapidKL "area" brochures & maps?

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: CVLB should look to RapidKL for the answers
By MOAZ YUSUF AHMAD for Transit

2009/06/08

MINISTER in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz recently visited Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown area, taking a look at public transport problems at Jalan Silang, the Klang bus stand and other areas. The media reported that Nazri was angry with the pollution and obstruction to traffic there. Nazri also noted that he thought that the bus operators were using the pajak (pawning) system -- the closest that any politician has come to admitting that this exists. I hope that some action will be taken against bus operators that pajak their buses to others.

Nazri said there were six major bus operators serving Kuala Lumpur and six entry points to the city. He has directed the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) to give each bus operator its own separate entry point and bus stand. The CVLB has two months to plan the new routes.

The Association for the Improvement of Mass Transit-Klang Valley (Transit) would like to suggest that the planning of new routes can be accomplished a lot sooner by simply asking RapidKL for information.

In 2006, RapidKL divided the Klang Valley into six zones. To serve these six zones, it identified five separate entry points as bus hubs and terminated the stage bus services there. For access into the city, RapidKL offered a city shuttle service and a single all-day ticket, Touch 'n Go service and monthly passes. Prasarana also bought hundreds of new buses for RapidKL.

The problem was that only RapidKL followed the new system. Other bus operators continued to pajak their buses, block the streets of KL, raise their fares to the maximum allowed and cut costs to the bare minimum, polluting the air with their old, poorly maintained buses.

It is these bus operators who are claiming that the system is unfair because RapidKL gets financial support from the government.

So what is the solution? Ironically, it is in the hands of the CVLB. With the support of the Federal Government and the Kuala Lumpur City Council, the CVLB can act as a de facto local public transport authority, instead of waiting until the new public land transport commission is created.

The CVLB can plan the new routes, package the zones to include a mix of profitable and social routes, and make each zone available under contract via an open tender to the existing bus operators. They can work with Prasarana to buy more buses to supplement the existing fleets.

The bus operators then would have to abandon the pajak system, start paying their employees a competitive salary, buy new buses (or lease them from Prasarana) and maintain their existing fleet. By following this system, the CVLB will be able to bring back accountability to the bus operators and better public transport services in the Klang Valley.

RapidKL had a good route plan for Klang Valley in 2006 but was unable to implement it because the system was unfairly tilted in favour of the other bus operators. If the CVLB takes the RapidKL zones as a starting point and uses the BastrenKL map guide for overview, they may be able to plan a better system for the Klang Valley.

Transit suggests that the CVLB keep RapidKL's route system and devise a single ticketing system. Let RapidKL run the City Shuttle and LRT. Transfer the Cyberjaya Dedicated Transport Service to the Putrajaya Corporation which has more buses.

Let the additional buses go to the operators selected to provide services for each area. That way, RapidKL can concentrate on LRT and the City Shuttle, the other bus operators can improve their services, and public transport users get a single, effective public transport system.

Nazri and CVLB must realise that it is RapidKL that has all the answers.

hahaha I dont think they are that good.

But imagine what could happen if a revitalized SJ Bas & RapidKL & City Liner and Sistem Kenderaan Seremban-KL were each operating their own packages of routes in the Klang Valley, mixing the social and stage bus routes and possibly signing agreements with the local taxi services.

Now imagine if other operators, like First (M) Sdn. Bhd. (subsidiary of First PLC of Scotland) or Comfort DelGro (M) Sdn. Bhd. (subsidary of Comfort DelGro Pte. Ltd. of Singapore) or Arriva (M) Sdn. Bhd. (subsidiary of Veolia Transportation S. A. of France) were to operate in the Klang Valley?????

I just spent a day riding the buses in London and it was amazing the number of different companies operating bus services in the city. I noticed at least 5-6 companies but all of the buses were red buses and all the fares and routes were determined by Transport for London.

(Red) London Bus Operators

South East London and Kent Bus Co. (SELKENT)
TransDev
Arriva
Metroline (Comfort DelGro)
Going Around (or was it Getting Around)

Outside of London I saw many buses operated by First PLC and Arriva.

Cheers, m

KOTA
Kembalikan khidmat bas

Oleh roslah othman
kota@utusan.com.my






KUALA LUMPUR 24 Jun - Hendak ke mana-mana pun senang. Menunggu pun kira-kira 10 minit sahaja.

Itulah gambaran terhadap perkhidmatan bas awam di Jalan Peel di sini apabila Rangkaian Pengangkutan Intergrasi Deras Sdn. Bhd (RapidKL) memulakan operasi di laluan Taman Maluri Cheras-Jalan Peel-Kota Raya kira-kira dua tahun lalu.

Hari ini, situasinya berbeza sama sekali. Jika mahu ke bandar raya, mereka terpaksa berjalan kaki sejauh kira-kira setengah kilometer untuk ke perhentian bas terdekat.

Walaupun kelihatan dekat tetapi ia mendedahkan mereka dengan pelbagai risiko termasuk kemalangan jalan raya berikutan Jalan Cheras yang sentiasa sibuk.

"Kalau boleh kembalikan semula perkhidmatan bas 111 yang sebelum ini pernah melalui Jalan Peel,'' begitu kata Mohd. Noor Mohammed, 69, ketika ditemui Utusan Malaysia baru-baru ini.

Mohd. Noor adalah antara warga emas yang tinggal di Blok D, Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Laksamana, Jalan Peel di sini yang terpaksa berhadapan dengan kesulitan gara-gara perkhidmatan bas RapidKL yang disediakan sebelum ini telah ditamatkan secara tiba-tiba sejak dua tahun lalu.

Tindakan tanpa notis itu benar-benar menyusahkan penduduk di situ kerana selama ini hampir 90 peratus penduduk di kawasan berkenaan bergantung kepada pengangkutan awam tersebut.

Penduduk mendakwa sudah beberapa kali memohon perkhidmatan bas dikembalikan di laluan berkenaan, namun sehingga kini belum ada sebarang perkembangan mengenainya.

Ketiadaan perkhidmatan bas di kawasan perumahan yang mempunyai kapasiti penduduk kira-kira 3,000 orang penduduk itu benar-benar menyulitkan.

Utusan Malaysia difahamkan, pada awal perkhidmatan bas di laluan tersebut dimulakan, kekerapannya adalah setiap 10 minit.

Bagaimanapun, pada saat-saat akhir perkhidmatannya dan kemungkinan bertujuan untuk menamatkan perkhidmatan di laluan itu, penduduk mendakwa jadual perjalanannya semakin tidak teratur termasuk pernah sehingga sejam sekali.

Difahamkan, semenjak perkhidmatan bas bernombor 111 di laluan tersebut ditamatkan, penduduk terpaksa mengggunakan bas lain iaitu dari laluan Taman Maluri, Cheras-Jalan Chocrane atau Taman Maluri melalui jalan besar berhadapan Pejabat Kesihatan Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).

Dakwa penduduk, selain terdedah risiko kemalangan, keadaan cuaca yang tidak menentu terutama hujan menimbulkan kesulitan terutama ketika mereka pergi atau pulang dari tempat kerja dan warga tua.

Tinjauan Utusan Malaysia di kawasan berkenaan mendapati perkhidmatan bas amat diperlukan di laluan berkenaan kerana pengguna bukan sahaja kalangan penduduk tetapi juga pelajar-pelajar dari tiga buah sekolah berhampiran iaitu Sekolah Menengah Convent, Sekolah Pendidikan Khas, dan Sekolah Kebangsaan Yaacob Latif, masing-masing terletak di Jalan Peel.

Kata penduduk, perkhidmatan tersebut dihentikan dengan alasan tidak mendatangkan keuntungan kepada syarikat kerana kekurangan pelanggan di laluan berkenaan.

Bagaimanapun, alasan tersebut tidak dapat diterima para penduduk yang rata-rata berpendapat siasatan tidak dijalankan secara menyeluruh dan langsung tidak mengambil kira pandangan penduduk di kawasan itu.

Lebih menimbulkan tanda tanya ialah mengapa sebuah pondok menunggu bas yang baru dibina di laluan berkenaan sejak empat bulan lalu sedangkan perkhidmatan bas tiada.

Harapan penduduk ialah agar RapidKL dapat mengembalikan semula perkhidmatan bas di laluan tersebut demi keselesaan dan kemudahan pengguna.

Sebagai sebuah syarikat pengangkutan bas yang dipertanggungjawabkan menyediakan sistem pengangkutan bersepadu di Lembah Klang, seharusnya RapidKL perlu lebih peka dengan kehendak pengguna.

Usaha RapidKL menyusun semula laluan bas sedikit masa dahulu antara satu langkah yang baik bagi menyediakan rangkaian perkhidmatan lebih cekap, namun pada masa sama kesan baik buruk kepada pengguna perlu difikirkan.

Difahamkan, langkah penyusunan semula laluan bas yang dilakukan termasuklah di laluan Taman Maluri-Jalan Peel-Kota Raya itu banyak membawa masalah kepada pengguna daripada memberi kebaikan.

Dalam hal ini, sikap mementingkan keuntungan semata-mata terutama syarikat-syarikat besar tidak harus ada kerana tanggungjawab sosial kepada masyarakat perlu juga diutamakan.

Walaupun kadar penggunaan pengangkutan awam di ibu negara terlalu rendah, malah yang paling rendah di Asia, tetapi itu bukan alasan untuk tidak menyediakan perkhidmatan bas yang menyeluruh.

Masih ramai yang menggunakan pengangkutan awam seperti bas, sistem transit aliran ringan (LRT), monorel mahupun komuter.

Meskipun ada pilihan untuk menaiki teksi, namun kadar tambang yang jauh lebih tinggi antara faktor utama mengapa bas masih menjadi pilihan pengguna.

RapidKL pertimbang rayuan penduduk PPR Laksamana

KUALA LUMPUR 3 Julai - Rangkaian Pengangkutan Intergrasi Deras Sdn. Bhd (RapidKL) akan mempertimbangkan permintaan penduduk Blok D Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Laksamana di sini agar mengembalikan semula perkhidmatan bas B111 dan akan merombak semula laluan sekiranya dirasakan perlu.

Pengurus Besar Komunikasi RapidKL, Ebi Azly Abdullah berkata, RapidKL sentiasa mengkaji laluan-laluan bas daripada semasa ke semasa demi kemudahan dan keselesaan pengguna.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, dengan masalah kekurangan pemandu yang dihadapi ketika ini, RapidKL terpaksa memastikan liputan rangkaian bas yang memadai untuk penduduk Lembah Klang.

Keadaan ini, jelasnya, menyebabkan jumlah bas bagi laluan tertentu sedikit terjejas ataupun memerlukan kajian semula.

"Di dalam kes laluan B111, ia dirombak dengan bas-bas di laluan berkenaan dipindahkan ke Jalan Cheras yang berhampiran.

"Bagaimanapun penduduk di kawasan sekitar Jalan Peel boleh menaiki bas yang melalui Jalan Peel iaitu T326 (Pandan Indah - Maluri) dan T329 (Taman Dagang - Maluri), untuk ke pusat bandar," ujarnya dalam kenyataan yang dikeluarkan di sini hari ini.

Kenyataan itu sebagai maklum balas terhadap rayuan penduduk yang disiarkan Utusan Malaysia pada 25 Jun lalu, mengenai kesulitan yang terpaksa dihadapi penduduk terutama warga emas serta pelajar-pelajar sekolah berhampiran.

Selain tidak dimaklumkan tentang penamatan perkhidmatan bas laluan tersebut, mereka yang ingin ke bandar terpaksa berjalan kaki sejauh kira-kira setengah kilometer untuk ke perhentian bas terdekat.

Walaupun kelihatan dekat tetapi ia mendedahkan mereka dengan pelbagai risiko termasuk kemalangan jalan raya berikutan Jalan Cheras yang sentiasa sibuk.

Ebi Azly menambah, kedua-dua perkhidmatan bas ini juga menghubungkan penduduk dengan hab bas Maluri dan Stesen LRT Maluri di mana mereka boleh menaiki bas lain seperti B111, B112, B114 dan laluan bas utama yang lain atau menaiki LRT untuk ke pusat bandar.

Touch 'n Go card for RapidKL bus T529



PETALING JAYA: Starting yesterday, only the Touch 'n Go card is accepted for payment of bus fares on RapidKL bus T529.

However, a statement from RapidKL said the electronic payment system was still on a trial basis and had not been implemented in all its buses.

The trial on bus T529, which operates from the Shah Alam terminal to the Section 19 Komuter Station in Shah Alam, is for a month.

RapidKL said the electronic payment system would not burden passengers who did not have the Touch 'n Go card as they could buy the card or top up the amount in their existing cards on the bus.


It said the system was aimed at making it more convenient for passengers to board the bus as each transaction would be faster compared with payments by cash.

The statement also said that passengers who wished to buy a Touch 'n Go card or top up the value could only use RM5, RM10 and RM50 for each transaction as no change would be given. Passengers are advised to have their cards ready before boarding.

RapidKL also urged parents to buy Touch 'n Go cards for their children.

Touch 'n Go Sdn Bhd officers will also be on board the T529 buses to help passengers during the trial period.

For more details, call 03-7625 6999 on Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 8pm, or go to rapidkl.com.my or send your feedback to suggest@rapidkl.com.my.

Boon to knowledge workers
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ


EMPLOYEES of banking institution HSBC are the heaviest users of the 24-hour Dedicated Transport System (DTS) since it started operations in 2007 to provide a link between Cyberjaya and areas located within an 80km radius.

Cyberview Sdn Bhd (CSB) managing director Datuk Redza Rafiq said efforts were being made to encourage more knowledge workers to use the system as only slightly more than 10% of the 20,000 working population in Cyberjaya were using it.

“HSBC is by far the largest user with 2,000, followed by MDec and OCBC Bank with a total of 140 users. We are conducting outreach programmes at companies to brief them on the benefits of using the DTS system,” Redza said.

All DTS buses serviced by RapidKL are equipped with the Mobile Tracking Unit (MTU) that is capable of monitoring the buses via the Global Positioning System (GPS).


Waiting for passengers: RapidKL DTS buses waiting in line in front of the HSBC bus shelter in Cyberjaya; it is the biggest bus shelter as the company is the largest user of the DTS system.

The unit contains a GPS chipset that can track locations and a GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) telecommunications unit for sending location information to a Web Server.

Redza said besides tracking the bus’s location, the MTU could alert the system when a bus departed from its base and warn the administrators should the bus experience a breakdown.

“On the rare occasion when a bus stalls, a replacement will be immediately despatched from a fleet of 10 reserve buses.

“The MTU also confirms a passenger’s presence on any particular bus through the i-Button, a Radio Frequency Identification chip in the system.

“This will allow companies in Cyberjaya to track employees and ensure they are safe from the time they leave their office until they reach their final destination in near real-time,” he said.

HSBC is the only company in Cyberjaya that provides all its workers using the DTS with the i-Button and CSB is working with other companies to adopt a similar system for their employees.

The MTU-installed DTS is reputed to be the first in the world to use the GPS and GPRS and this could be one of the answers to solving the parking and congestion problems in the cybercity in the years to come.

The DTS charges RM213 per passenger per month. The buses leave from seven locations daily – KL Sentral, Gombak, Kepong, Bangi, Klang, Banting and Seremban.

“The system is gaining steam with a total of 31 companies having signed up for the service. The DTS is an affordable, reliable and efficient mode of transportation for any knowledge worker based in Cyberjaya,” Redza said.

Bus schedules are designed to suit the working hours of the companies operating in Cyberjaya, especially the shared services and outsourcing companies, with the pick-up times customised to individual company needs.

Atosorigin Sdn Bhd employee Harjinder Singh is keen to try the DTS because it is a convenient way of commuting to his workplace from his home in Port Dickson.


Keeping track: DTS stakeholder relations unit executives Norhafizah Saharin and Abdul Latif Yasin monitoring the MTU system in the control unit in Cyberjaya.

“I’d heard that the DTS buses were specially modified and had reclinable seats.

“This service is perfect for me; the only hassle I face is that I have to make my way to the Seremban pick-up point on my own,” said Harjinder, who recently started work as an IT engineer at his new workplace.

Regular passenger Khatijah Abdul Sidek from Shah Alam said she had been using the DTS for more than a year and found it very convenient as it provided a direct service from Wisma Masalam.

“I use a monthly pass but it will be good for the workers if all companies followed the HSBC i-Button system for safety reasons, as many of us work at odd times, sometimes leaving for home in the wee hours of the morning,” she said.

There are now 53 buses operating 24 hours, seven days a week. The pick-up and drop-off points are at KL Sentral; Bukit Jalil; Puchong; Melawati; Ampang Point; Gombak; Bandar Tasik Selatan; KTM Serdang; Shell Section 1, Bandar Baru Bangi; Sg Ramal Luar Kajang; Putrajaya Sentral; Komplek Desa Kepong; 1 Utama Damansara; LRT Kelana Jaya; Summit USJ, Subang Jaya; Klang Parade; Lotus Restaurant, Jalan Gasing, PJ; Wisma Masalam, Shah Alam; Terminal 1, Seremban; Courts Mammoth, Nilai; Pasaraya Dengkil and Narsco Plantation, Banting.

28 hurt as bus dives onto bike lane
By STEVEN DANIEL


KUALA LUMPUR: A RapidKL bus went out of control and plunged off the Kampung Kerinchi ramp onto the motorcycle lane, leaving 28 passengers hurt, six of them seriously.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said the bus was travelling from Shah Alam to the capital when the incident happened at 1pm near the Jalan Pantai Baru junction.

“The driver lost control when trying to avoid a car and crashed through the steel barricade. It plunged 4m onto the motorcycle lane, completely blocking the lane,” he said yesterday.

Three ambulances from Universiti Malaya Medical Centre and St John’s Ambulance took the injured passengers to the hospital. Twenty-two of the passengers were given outpatient treatment.


Road block: An aerial view of the site of the accident at the Kampung Kerinchi ramp Tuesday.

The other passengers had fractured hands and legs. Of the injured passengers, 16 were men.

Passenger Juriah Salleh, 37, said several passengers sitting at the back were flung forward during the incident.

She heard shouts and screams before losing consciousness.

“It was a really terrifying experience. When I came to, I was being helped by the rescuers out of the bus,” said the housewife who was not hurt.

Meanwhile, the bus driver, in his late 30s, said a blue Satria car was driven “very aggressively” just before the incident occurred.

The car tried to overtake the bus and forced the big vehicle to the side of the road.

“I tried to avoid crashing into him, but when I braked, I lost control,” said the driver who suffered minor cuts to his head.

The accident led to a massive traffic jam along the Federal Highway for several hours, caused mainly by motorists slowing down to have a look.

Streets mail: Provide bus service as new highway has ample lanes

2009/07/15
MOAZ YUSUF AHMAD, Petaling Jaya

I REFER to your report "Resolve issues before opening link road" (Streets, July 8).

As a former resident of SS12, Subang Jaya, I have been watching the progress of the Subang-Kelana Highway Link very closely since the project began in early 2005.

The construction had turned Persiaran Kewajipan upside down. What was once a street lined with trees from the Federal Highway to the Metropolitan Roundabout was widened by two lanes to accommodate the construction. It became very hard for pedestrians to cross the road and at night there were no streetlights, making it unsafe to walk.

Today, the highway is complete. I have walked along the highway from Subang Airport road to the 3K Complex in SS13. Persiaran Kewajipan now has 10 lanes in each direction, six on the ground and four elevated.


You would think that with six lanes, there would be additional space for buses. In fact, Persiaran Kewajipan and the Subang Airport road (up to the airport) are extremely wide and would be ideal roads to implement a rapid transit bus service in special lanes without taking away other lanes meant for the public.

A rapid transit bus service along Persiaran Kewajipan using the Subang-Kelana Highway Link would provide a quick and comfortable connection between the communities of Putra Heights, USJ and Subang Jaya to the Kelana Jaya LRT station.

If Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd plans to extend the LRT service from Kelana Jaya to the Lembah Subang Depot next to the NKVE, then it could become a hub for public transport serving Subang, Shah Alam and Kota Damansara.

At the very least, I hope RapidKL will consider providing a bus service from Kelana Jaya to USJ. That will help to get more people interested in using public transport without waiting for the LRT extension to be completed.

Bas RapidKL dihantar ke Puspakom

KUALA LUMPUR 16 Julai - Bas RapidKL yang terhumban dan memasuki laluan motosikal berdekatan susur keluar ke Jalan Pantai Baru di sini kelmarin, dihantar ke Pusat Pemeriksaan Kenderaan Berkomputer (Puspakom) hari ini untuk pemeriksaan.

Pegawai Turus Penguat Kuasa dan Operasi Trafik Kuala Lumpur, Deputi Supritendan Ng Fook Loong berkata, turut dihantar sebuah kereta jenis Proton Satria yang juga terlibat dalam kemalangan itu.

Beliau berkata, langkah itu bagi membantu siasatan pihaknya untuk mengenal pasti punca kemalangan tersebut.

RapidKL umum kadar tambang baru bas
30/07/2009 4:07pm


PETALING JAYA 30 Julai — Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (RapidKL) hari ini mengumumkan tambang baru bagi perkhidmatan bas mengikut zon yang akan berkuatkuasa mulai 1 Sept depan.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutifnya Suffian Baharuddin berkata RapidKL akan memperkenalkan struktur tambang mengikut zon bagi kesemua 165 laluan bas sekaligus menggantikan tambang pas harian yang dilaksanakan RapidKL ketika ini.

“Kadar tambang baru itu membabitkan perubahan daripada konsep pas harian kepada tambang bagi setiap perjalanan mengikut zon yang direntasi, seperti yang diamalkan pengusaha bas henti-henti lain di Lembah Klang,” katanya pada sidang media di sini, hari ini.

Suffian berkata penumpang bas Tempatan kini membayar RM1 secara pas harian, namun untuk kadar baru, RM1 hanya untuk sekali perjalanan sahaja.

“Struktur tambang baru bagi bas Bandar pula adalah RM1 untuk sekali perjalanan berbanding RM2 bagi pas harian sebelum ini,” katanya.

Katanya bagi bas Utama, penumpang akan dikenakan bayaran mengikut zon, iaitu RM1 bagi perjalanan satu zon, RM1.90 merentasi dua zon, RM2.50 merentasi tiga zon dan RM3 merentasi empat zon.

“Struktur tambang baru bagi bas Ekspres pula adalah RM3.80 untuk sekali perjalanan,” katanya.


Suffian berkata RapidKL juga akan menawarkan kadar diskaun 50 peratus melalui tiket konsesi bagi pelajar sekolah berpakaian seragam, warga emas dan golongan orang kurang upaya bagi semua perkhidmatan bas Tempatan, Utama, Bandar dan Ekspres.

Selaras dengan pelaksanaan struktur tambang bas mengikut zon itu, RapidKL memperkenalkan pas perjalanan Bulanan Bas yang boleh dinikmati penumpang dengan penjimatan sehingga 50 peratus.

“Penumpang yang kerap menggunakan perkhidmatan bas RapidKL digalakkan membeli pas bulanan yang memberikan penjimatan kos perjalanan berbanding dengan membeli tiket setiap kali menaiki bas RapidKL,” katanya.

Pas bulanan perkhidmatan bas Tempatan dijual pada harga RM40, pas bulanan bas untuk semua laluan bas Tempatan, Bandar dan Utama RM100, Pas Bulanan Integrasi untuk semua laluan bas Tempatan, Bandar dan Utama serta perkhidmatan LRT aliran Kelana Jaya dan Ampang berharga RM150.
“Bagi pas Bulanan Konsesi untuk semua laluan bas Tempatan, Utama dan Bandar pula berharga RM50,” katanya sambil menambah pas-pas bulanan tersebut akan mula dijual pada 20 Ogos.
