Bus, taxi fares up 30%, service to improve, says Nazri


Table on the new fares
http://thestar.com.my/archives/2009/.../n_newfare.pdf

KUALA LUMPUR: Public transport fares will cost 30% more from next month.

The new flag-off fare for taxis will be RM3, up from RM2, while passengers will be charged 10 sen for every 115m, instead of 150m currently.

For taxis caught in a traffic jam, the fare will be RM3 for the first three minutes and 10 sen for every subsequent 21 seconds, instead of 45 seconds previously. Taxis will also have to issue receipts.

Express bus fares will go up by two sen per kilometre, while for stage buses in Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding areas, the increase will be between 25 and 70 sen, according to the zones.

Schoolbus fares in urban areas will also increase from RM21.10 to RM27.43 for the first kilometre and from RM1.55 to RM2.02 for every subsequent kilometre.

For rural areas, the increase will be from RM15.85 to RM20.61 for every kilometre.

Announcing the increase yesterday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz said public transport companies were, however, also expected to improve their level of service in line with the fare hike.

“I don’t think the public will be shocked by the increase as they have been conditioned for it. The proposed increase has been reported for some time.

“The increase is reasonable, taking into consideration the various initiatives and subsidies given by the Government to the public transport sector,” he told reporters after giving permits to 831 taxi drivers here yesterday.

He said the Cabinet had, on June 17, agreed to the proposal to increase the fares. The fare structure will be reviewed every year, he added.

The last fare increase for taxis, and express and stage buses was in 2005, while for schoolbuses, it was in 2006.

Nazri said among the measures to enhance their service, public transport firms were expected to adhere to Government’s guidelines for efficient management of their fleet, display the fare schedule in all their vehicles and ensure training for all their drivers.

They were also expected to cooperate with the authorities to set up a databank of drivers’ records to aid enforcement against those blacklisted.

Other measures included a 25% discount to the disabled and senior citizens, streamlining of fares for Sabah and Sarawak, installation of global positioning systems and phasing out non-air conditioned buses by 2010.

Puspakom, added Nazri, has also agreed to reduce its fees to re-calibrate taxi meter fare from RM50 to RM10.

Hikes are ‘sad’, say bus operators


PETALING JAYA: The 30% fare increase for express buses and Kuala Lumpur stage coaches will not do much for the industry.

Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president Datuk Mohd Ashfar Ali said that a 30% interim surcharge had already been implemented since Sept 15 last year, and this was just making it permanent.

“As far as we are concerned, it’s nothing new,” he said yesterday.

He said the hikes were “sad” as it meant that passengers could not enjoy better service, and workers would not be able to get their bonuses and salary increases.

He added that despite numerous memoranda to the Economic Planning Unit and the National Economic Action Council, the Government appeared not to grasp the real problems affecting bus operators.

“It is the operators servicing the rural people outside the Klang Valley that need the bus services to be subsidised.

“Raising the fares only for buses plying urban routes was not effective as their passenger loads were consistently high and profitable, unlike those servicing rural roads,” Ashfar said.

Meanwhile, National Collaborative Council of Parent-Teacher Associations chairman Datuk Mohd Ali Hasan said the schoolbus price hike should not have exceeded 10%.

He said the increase did not take into account the hardships faced by the people.

“The bus drivers’ associations must also consider the general welfare of the people, who will feel the pinch of this hike,” Mohd Ali said.

Ariff Kassim, a parent in Johor Baru, said the hike came at a bad time.

“I’m paying RM80 a month for my son in Form Three. I will probably need to pay more than RM100 now.

“As a parent, I cannot support any increase,” Ariff said.

Business owner Jamilah Adom, who said she would need to fork out more than RM300 with the fare increase, called it “unreasonable.”

Despite the announced rise in fares, some taxi drivers currently operating without meters said they did not feel the need to change.

“I can still earn more operating without the meter,” said a taxi driver who did not wish to be identified.

Most taxi drivers interviewed, however, said they were happy with the new rates as it was better than nothing.

Meanwhile, the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board will conduct random checks to ensure that all public transport firms adhered to regulations to improve their services.

Board chairman Datuk Halimah Sadique said it would also make it compulsory for all taxi drivers to be members of associations so that they could be traced if they flouted regulations.

She added that public transport firms had four months from Aug 1 to calibrate their taxi meters and ensure that all the policies were in place.

Beli tiket bas ekspres melalui ALLtickets.my


Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz menandatangani replika tiket sewaktu melancarkan ALLtickets.my sambil diperhatikan oleh Zarul Ahmad Zulkifli (kiri) di Kuala Lumpur, semalam.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



KUALA LUMPUR 28 Julai - Pengguna kini tidak perlu lagi bersesak-sesak dan beratur panjang untuk membeli tiket bas menjelang Hari Raya Aidilfitri ini apabila sistem pembelian tiket secara dalam talian iaitu ALLtickets.my dilancarkan hari ini.

Mereka boleh memilih syarikat bas, jadual perjalanan dan tempat duduk yang diingini, seterusnya membeli tiket dan membuat pembayaran menerusi kad kredit atau perbankan online, syarikat insurans dan pengiklan yang mempunyai rangkaian dengan sistem itu.

Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz berkata, langkah itu selaras dengan hasrat untuk mengurangkan kesesakan di terminal bas selain membantu membanteras ulat tiket.

Menurut beliau, melalui perkhidmatan ALLtickets.my, orang ramai boleh menempah atau membeli tiket sama ada di pejabat pos, bank-bank, kedai-kedai yang mempunyai rangkaian dengannya, kios-kios di tempat awam atau di mana sahaja melalui talian Internet.

"Pembelian tiket ini juga boleh dibuat di luar negara di mana orang ramai dan pelancong boleh membuat pembelian sebelum berlepas dan melancong ke Malaysia,'' ujarnya pada sidang akhbar pelancaran ALLtickets.my di sini hari ini.

Hadir sama Pengerusi Syarikat Pegasus Solutions Sdn. Bhd., Zarul Ahmad Zulkifli iaitu syarikat pengendali penjualan tiket secara online itu.

Jelas Mohamed Nazri, kerajaan tidak memaksa lebih 400 pengusaha bas ekspres di negara ini untuk menyertai perkhidmatan itu.

Bagaimanapun, menurutnya, pengusaha bas ekspres digalakkan untuk mengambil manfaat hasil penggunaan sistem jualan tiket bas secara online itu.

''Semua pengusaha bas di negara ini dapat menambah baik perkhidmatan mereka kepada pelanggan jika menyertai sistem penjualan tiket ini,'' ujarnya.

Katanya, melalui sistem tersebut, pengusaha bas boleh mengumpul dan menyimpan maklumat pelanggan bagi tujuan pemasaran seperti promosi harga atau program kesetiaan pelanggan.

"Pengusaha bas ekspres juga boleh bekerjasama dengan pengusaha bas yang lain bagi perkongsian bas yang mampu memaksimumkan penjualan tempat duduk bas masing-masing," ujarnya.

Katanya lagi, maklumat pengguna dan pengusaha bas dijamin selamat kerana operasi Pegasus Solutions Sdn. Bhd. adalah tertakluk kepada peraturan kawalan rahsia pelanggan oleh Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM).

Selain itu, jelasnya, sistem tersebut adalah langkah penambahbaikan yang diinginkan oleh Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) yang meliputi penyediaan insurans perlindungan kemalangan kepada pengguna.

"Keselamatan penumpang dapat dipertingkatkan kerana sistem ini boleh disambungkan secara online dengan Puspakom, Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) dan pihak polis bagi memudahkan pengawalseliaan dan pengurusan," katanya.

Harga tiket bas ekspres ikut kadar baru raya ini


KUALA LUMPUR: Harga tiket bas ekspres pada musim perayaan Aidilfitri ini adalah mengikut kadar tambang baru iaitu 8.5 sen bagi setiap kilometer seperti yang diluluskan kerajaan 1 Ogos lalu.

Pengerusi Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP), Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique, berkata caj tambahan RM3 turut dibenarkan bagi setiap tiket bas ekspres tambahan.

Beliau berkata LPKP akan mengeluarkan Lesen Perubahan Sementara (LPS) bagi memastikan bas ekspres mencukupi untuk menampung keperluan orang ramai.

"Permohonan LPS dibuka mulai 22 Ogos hingga 18 September depan dan sah tujuh hari sebelum dan tujuh hari selepas Hari Raya Puasa iaitu dari 13 hingga 28 September," katanya dalam satu kenyataan di sini hari ini.

Beliau berkata, hanya bas berusia tidak melebihi 15 tahun dibenarkan untuk dijadikan bas ekspres tambahan.

"Tiada had jarak perjalanan dikenakan bagi bas berusia di bawah 12 tahun, tetapi bagi bas berusia 12 hingga 15 tahun, hanya dibenar melakukan perjalanan tidak melebihi 300 kilometer sehala," katanya

Halimah berkata, LPKP membenarkan bas ekspres biasa dan bas ekspres tambahan untuk beroperasi berdasarkan laluan terbuka bagi memudahkan pihak syarikat mengatur laluan bas mengikut keperluan pengguna.

Bagaimanapun, beliau mengingatkan syarikat bas ekspres supaya tidak bersekongkol dengan "ulat" dan menguruskan sendiri penjualan tiket serta perjalanan bas.

"LPKP akan mengambil tindakan terhadap syarikat bas ekspres yang gagal menyediakan bas pada saat-saat akhir dan menjual tiket melebihi kadar tambang semasa," katanya.

Di samping itu, Halimah berkata RapidKL dibenarkan menyediakan bas pengantara dari Hentian Puduraya ke Hentian Duta dan dari Hentian Puduraya ke Kompleks Sukan Negara, Bukit Jalil dengan kadar tambang RM2 sehala.

Orang ramai yang ingin membuat pertanyaan atau aduan kepada LPKP bolehlah menghubungi ibu pejabat LPKP di Putrajaya di talian 03-88805883, e-mel ke aduan@lpkp.gov.my atau menerusi laman web www.lpkp.gov.my

Pengguna juga boleh menghubungi 04-4485111 bagi LPKP Wilayah Utara (Sungai Petani), 06-9556035 Wilayah Selatan, (Ledang) dan 09-6241111, Wilayah Timur (Kuala Terengganu). - Bernama

RM3 extra for express bus tickets



PUTRAJAYA: Companies providing additional express bus services during the Hari Raya period are allowed to charge an additional RM3 for their tickets.

Commercial Vehicle Licencing Board (CVLB) board chairman Datuk Halimah Mohd Sadique also said express bus fares would be charged according to the new rates approved by the Government effective Aug 1.

She said CVLB officers would be on the ground to monitor companies that failed to provide the additional services as promised and also to nab those who sell tickets higher than the approved fares.

Halimah added that temporary licences would be issued soon to ensure sufficient public transport for those who want to go back to their hometowns for the festivities.

Companies could start applying for the temporary licences from Aug 22 to Sept 18 to provide the additional services between Sept 13 and Sept 28.

The companies, which could only use buses which are not older than 15 years, would be allowed to determine the routes for the additional express bus services so they could organise trips according to the public’s needs.

“Express bus companies must manage the sale of tickets themselves and not engage the services of touts.

“Strict action will be taken against those who are in cohorts with these parties,” Halimah said in a statement yesterday.

She said companies providing services to the east coast would use the Putra and Pekeliling bus terminals, north-bound buses would be stationed at the Puduraya and Duta terminals while south-bound buses would operate from the National Sports Complex terminal in Bukit Jalil.

Express buses could also operate from temporary terminals in Gombak, Kajang, Putrajaya and Damansara Utama from Sept 12 to Sept 27.

RapidKL would provide feeder bus services from Puduraya to the Duta terminal and from Puduraya to the National Sports Complex at a one-way fare of RM2.

Halimah advised passengers to ensure that tickets displayed the correct fare, company name and travel date and time.

Raya buses will charge new rates
2009/08/12

By Regina Lee

PUTRAJAYA: Fares for express buses for the coming Hari Raya season will be at the new rate approved by the government on Aug 1, which is 8.5 sen per km.

A surcharge of RM3 is allowed for tickets of additional express buses, said Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) chairman Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique.

She said applications for the temporary licences would be accepted from Aug 22 until Sept 18.

"They will be valid seven days before Hari Raya and seven days after (Sept 13-28)," she said yesterday.

Halimah said only buses less than 15 years old would be allowed to serve as additional buses.

"Buses between 12 and 15 years are limited to a one-way travelling distance of not more than 300km."

CVLB is allowing buses to operate in the open route system as they did last year to make it easier for companies to organise routes for passengers.

Halimah, however reminded bus companies not to conspire with ticket touts, but instead to manage ticket sales and bus routes themselves.

"The board will take action against bus companies which overcharge and fail to provide buses at the last minute."

Halimah also said RapidKL would be allowed to provide feeder buses from Puduraya bus terminal to Jalan Duta bus terminal and from Puduraya bus terminal to the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil with a one-way fare of RM2.

Those with enquiries or complaints can contact the board at 03-88805883, 03-88805540, 03-88805872, 03-88805531 and 03-88805538.

They can also email the board at aduan@lpkp.gov.my.

KTB To Replace Between 200-300 Buses Annually


SEREMBAN, Aug 17 (Bernama) -- Konsortium Transnasional Bhd (KTB), the country's largest public bus operator, will replace between 200-300 buses annually to meet the latest safety and international standards.

Its executive director Tengku Hasmadi Tengku Hashim said the move was also to introduce natural gas (NGV) powered buses which are more economical and environment friendly.

"We now have 1,500 stage and express covering all the cities and towns on the Peninsular as well as Singapore," he told reporters after officiating the opening of the KTM bus depot, at Terminal 2, Era Square here on Monday.

At present, KTB through "Transnasional", is the leader in the express bus industry in Peninsular Malaysia.

Besides "Transnasional", KTB also operates the "Cityliner" stage buses, "Plusliner" economy express buses and a luxury bus service under the "Nice" brand.

Meanwhile, Tengku Hasmadi said the company had ordered 465 air-conditioned NGV buses since 2005 and of this number, 110 had been allocated to Negeri Sembilan.

KTB made its debut on Bursa Malaysia on June 15, 2007 and engages primarily in bus transportation. The company ferries about 60 million passengers annually.

Sabah & Sarawak: Tambang baru mulai 8 September
Oleh Mohd Izham Unnip Abdullah
bhnews@bharian.com.my




21 pengusaha bas diminta kena kadar serentak

KOTA KINABALU: Mulai 8 September ini, penumpang bas ekspres di Sabah termasuk mereka yang menempah tiket untuk balik kampung sempena Aidilfitri akan dikenakan tambang baru mengikut kenaikan 30 peratus kadar tambang yang diluluskan kerajaan berkuat kuasa 1 Ogos lalu.

Presiden Majlis Pengusaha Bas Ekspres Sabah (Seboc), Donald Hanafi, berkata pihaknya sudah memaklumkan pelaksanaan tambang baru itu kepada 21 pengusaha bas ekspres dan meminta mereka menggunakan kadar berkenaan secara serentak bagi mengelak kekeliruan pengguna.



Beliau berkata, pengusaha bas ekspres di Sabah khususnya yang beroperasi antara ibu negeri dan destinasi di Pantai Timur sepakat menggunakan kadar baru itu pada musim perayaan bulan ini kerana menjangka ramai penumpang akan menggunakan perkhidmatan mereka.

Katanya, walaupun kerajaan sudah memberi lampu hijau kepada syarikat bas ekspres menaikkan tambang mengikut kadar baru yang ditetapkan bermula 1 Ogos lalu, pihaknya menangguhkan pelaksanannya bagi mengelak kejutan mendadak di kalangan pengguna.

"Jika terus menaikkan tambang mengikut tarikh berkuat kuasa yang diluluskan kerajaan, kami bimbang pengguna akan terkejut dan marah kepada kami. Sekarang lebih sebulan kadar baru itu diperkenalkan, barulah kami menggunakannya.

"Kalau pengguna marah, kami akan menerangkan kepada mereka bahawa ia adalah kadar baru ditetapkan kerajaan yang sepatutnya dilaksanakan sejak 1 Ogos lalu lagi," katanya kepada Berita Harian di sini, semalam.

Berdasarkan kenaikan itu, katanya, kadar tambang baru bagi destinasi Kota Kinabalu-Tawau ialah RM71 seorang, naik RM6 berbanding RM65 seorang sebelum ini, manakala kadar baru bagi destinasi Kota Kinabalu-Semporna ialah RM75 seorang, naik RM10 berbanding RM65 sebelum ini.

Bagi destinasi Kota Kinabalu-Lahad Datu, katanya, tambang baru ialah RM52 berbanding RM45 sebelum ini, manakala kadar tambang bagi destinasi Kota Kinabalu-Kunak dan dan Kota Kinabalu-Sandakan masing-masing ialah RM58 dan RM42 seorang berbanding RM50 dan RM35 sebelum ini.

Pertengahan Julai lalu, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz, mengumumkan kadar tambang bas ekspres di Sabah naik tiga sen kepada 13 sen sekilometer berbanding 10 sen sekilometer sebelum ini.

Dengan kenaikan itu, Donald berkata pihaknya yakin syarikat bas ekspres di Sabah mampu memperolehi pendapatan lebih baik berbanding sebelum ini, khususnya untuk menampung kos penyelenggaraan kenderaan, bahan api dan gaji pekerja.

"Kutipan tambang pengusaha bas ekspres sepanjang musim perayaan ini boleh digunakan untuk memberi bonus kepada pekerja mereka. Jadi, tekanan mengendalikan penumpang yang ramai pada musim perayaan dapat juga dikurangkan.

"Bukannya kita mahu mengambil kesempatan menaikkan tambang pada musim perayaan, sebaliknya pengguna juga perlu faham kami memerlukan keuntungan untuk memastikan perkhidmatan disediakan lebih berkualiti dan memuaskan mereka," katanya.

Mengenai bilangan bas ekspres untuk menampung penumpang yang dijangka meningkat sempena sambutan Aidilfitri tidak lama lagi, Donald berkata, jumlah sedia ada didapati mencukupi.

Beliau berkata, ada 200 bas ekspres beroperasi di Sabah khususnya bagi destinasi antara ibu negeri dan Pantai Timur.

"Bilangan bas memang mencukupi. Apa yang kami perlu lakukan cuma menambah jadual perjalanan bas daripada lima perjalanan sehari pada hari biasa kepada 10 perjalanan sehari pada musim perayaan ini.

"Saya yakin langkah ini dapat menampung jumlah penumpang yang ada. Tahun lalu juga kami buat seperti ini dan ia tidak mendatangkan masalah kepada penumpang yang ingin balik kampung," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, katanya jika keadaan penumpang terlalu ramai pada tahun ini, pihaknya bersedia menggunakan pendekatan lain seperti menyewa bas pelancong dan bas sekolah untuk dijadikan bas ekspres dan mendapatkan permit perjalanan sementara daripada Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP).

Tickets selling like hot cakes

2009/09/08
By Dawn Chan and Sheila Sri Priya

KTMB staff Nurul Hasliza Muhamad showing the train schedule to Tumpat, Kelantan, where tickets from Sept 16 to 20 have been sold out.

KUALA LUMPUR:If you have not got your bus ticket to balik kampung, you better rush to Puduraya as tickets for the Hari Raya festive period is fast selling out.

Although there were no long queues during our visit to the Puduraya bus terminal yesterday, several bus companies said tickets to the East Coast were sold out.

Tickets, however, are still available for those travelling to the north and south.

Satria Express ticketing assistant Robiah Ismail said tickets to destinations such as Malacca, Muar, Singapore, Sungai Petani, Bukit Kayu Hitam, Haadyai and Tanjung Bidor were still available.


"However, tickets are selling fast. As we are expecting a last-minute rush, we have on standby five more buses for all of our routes. We will use the extra buses if there is a demand during the last few days before Hari Raya," she said.

Unlike Satria Express, Wonrey Travel and Tours Konsortium and AB Express said they would not be providing extra buses.

Wonrey counter assistant Rony Zunn said tickets to destinations such as Alor Star, Bukit Kayu Hitam, Kuala Kangsar, Changloon and several other northern destinations on Sept 18 were sold out.

"There are tickets available to Johor but it is for the early morning and late evening travels," he said.

AB Express ticketing assistant Roslina Rosmali said the north- and south-bound tickets for the Hari Raya period had been selling like hot cakes since they were first made available at the end of last month.

The East Coast tickets had since sold out, said Roslina, adding that only a small number of north- and south-bound tickets were still available.

A Transnasional officer said bus tickets to the East Coast from Sept 16 until Hari Raya were sold out. However, tickets to other destinations on Sept 16, 17, and 18 are still available.

"We will decide maybe a week before Hari Raya whether to increase the number of buses," he said.

A ticket operator, however, said that many smaller bus companies still had tickets available to most destinations.

"We usually don't sell the tickets for additional buses now because when we sell tickets too early, some people who changed their travelling plans will return their tickets and ask for refunds," he said.

"Sometimes, they become a nuisance and beg us for a refund. To avoid the hassle, we only sell the tickets for the extra bus services at the last minute," he said.

Meanwhile, Puduraya-based Ah Boon Travel ticketing officer Iswandy Hamsawi said AirAsia flight tickets allocated to the company for Kuching, Kelantan, Terengganu, Medan and Surabaya from Sept 17 to 19 have been sold out.

"Flights for Sept 20 onwards are available but the tickets for last-minute buyers will be more expensive," he said.

Train tickets are also fast selling out. Our checks revealed that tickets to Kelantan between Sept 13 and 20 are sold out but tickets to Butterworth and Johor are still available.

"This year, customers are better prepared. They are not waiting until the eve of Hari Raya to buy their tickets. Instead, they buy tickets online and also through phone reservation.

"Many bought their tickets on the day we released them which is 60 days before Hari Raya," said ticketing supervisor Suriah Sumaria, 32, at the KTMB station in KL Sentral.

Those travelling north and Kelantan usually prefer to travel by train as it is considered safer and more comfortable.

"Passengers prefer to travel in comfort and they want to travel safely. Trains in general have lower accident rates and we have comfortable coaches.

"Our toilet facilities are of a high standard and our cafe in the train is convenient for passengers," Suriah said.

Additional train trips to all destinations would be decided based on demand.

The Hari Raya rush is expected to begin from Sept 17 onwards.

Konsortium Transnasional Providing 85 Extra Buses This Raya Season


SERDANG, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- Konsortium Transnasional Berhad will provide 85 additional express buses from this coming Monday to meet the demand from passengers this Raya season.

Its executive director Tengku Hasmadi Tengku Hashim said this was an increase of 10 per cent to the 615 buses already available, especially for those wanting to return to their hometowns on Thursday or Friday.

However, he said, tickets for long-distance trips that took more than five hours like to the East Coast on the two days had been sold out.

"The additional express buses were for trips one week before and after Hari Raya," he told Bernama after attending the launching of the prime ministers' personal Hari Raya message by Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin at the Universiti Putra Malaysia's Medical Faculty, here, on Thursday.

Tengku Hasmadi said there were still 12,000 tickets for long-distance trips on the coming Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and he urged those without tickets to get them fast from legitimate ticket counters.

"Since Hari Raya falls on Sunday, many passengers will want to return to their hometowns on Thursday and Friday, so the tickets for earlier days are still available."

Meanwhile, there are still about 10,000 bus tickets available for trips that take less than five hours like KL-Melaka and KL-Ipoh.

Passengers to these destinations, Tengku Hasmadi said, would usually buy the tickets at the last moment as they knew that tickets would be available.

He said for this Raya season, the consortium was providing 34,000 seats on 900 trips (excluding the additional buses) using the Tansnasional, Nice and Plusliner buses.

Firm first to have GPS, seat belt on bus in Sarawak
Friday, September 25th, 2009

MIRI: Miri Transport Company (MTC) Sdn Bhd created history when it became the first public transport in Sarawak to install the radio navigation system or global positioning system (GPS) and seat belt on its express buses.

MTC general manager Yeo Yow Shun said yesterday the company was going all this distance because it believed in passenger safety.

He said with the system in place the company would be able to keep track of its express buses as regards to their location and speed.

He said in that way the company’s administrative office would be able to keep drivers on the right side of the law “at all times”.

“Through GPS we are able to know the location of the bus and the speed it is travelling.

“These details are being made available to our office every two minutes and will be kept in our record,” Yeo told reporters yesterday.

According to Yeo, the company now has the system in four of its express buses for a trial run.

He said all 17 company buses would have the system installed if it proves successful.

According to Yeo, the system costs RM1,400 per unit.

On the fixing of seat belts, he said the company would ensure that passengers fasten up like those flying in planes.

“We want our passengers to be safe and feel safe,” he said.

On another development, MTC, he said, would soon introduce the VIP express bus concept to their customers in the state.

He said the VIP feature would include a TV screen for every seat and personal selection of movies for the passenger.

Yeo said once the company had found the suppliers of the equipment, the

VIP express should be running.

End of June saw a partnership between Celcom Axiata Berhad and Transnasional Express, a member of Konsortium Transnasional Berhad (KTB), which now allows for WiFi service across the entire fleet of express buses throughout Peninsular Malaysia.

Under Sinar Aki Sdn Bhd, the systems and hardware integrator for Transnasional Express, Celcom’s WiFi service is to be installed on-board 50 Transnasional express buses via 3G SIM Bonding, accessible via 850 mobile tablet units with Celcom digital content available for rental to passengers on selected routes.

Named ‘57 coach-mate’, the project aims to see up to 7,200 tablets installed to cover the entire network of 500 Transnasional buses by year-end.

At the signing, Celcom CEO Datuk Sri Shazalli Ramly said, “Celcom’s network strength and stability is the ideal fit for the Transnasional express bus network that, like us, provides extensive connectivity throughout highways and roadways in Malaysia.”

Tablet rental will be made available to more than 200 Transnasional routes in phases from this month and will be priced from RM10 per passenger but with a launch promotional price from RM4 per passenger. The first phase will see the project implemented on routes to most major cities in the Southern region.

Also present at the signing were KTB chairman and managing director Datuk Sri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, KTB executive director Tengku Hasmadi Tengku Hashim along with Sinar Aki CEO Noor Azhar Abu Kassim, chief operating officer Mohamad Ayob Dellah and director Nazaruddin Hamzah.

Move to improve bus transport industry
Published: Thursday July 19, 2012 MYT 9:54:00 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=202

PUTRAJAYA: Efforts are being made to improve the bus transportation industry, including increasing budget allocations for next year, Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai said.

He added industry players were concerned about the low wages paid to bus drivers, which had affected the efficiency of the public bus services.

“The Government will support projects to put in place a more efficient transportation system, including providing more feeder buses to improve the connectivity of the country's overall public transportation system.

“There is a shortage of bus drivers and we hope that they will receive better pay as some of them are only paid at about RM1,000 per month.

“We hope to achieve the Urban Planning Department's 2020 target to get at least 30% of the population to use public transport,” he told a press conference at the ministry here on Thursday.

Earlier, Lim chaired a three-hour focus group meeting with public transportation stakeholders from the public and private sector to discuss their expectations for the Budget 2013.

Among those who attended the meeting were 60 representatives from 27 agencies, including the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD), Transport Ministry, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd, SME Bank, the Malaysian Highway Authority and consumer groups.

Lim also said the disabled community has also raised their concerns that there was a lack of disabled-friendly public transportation facilities.

“We have also advised SPAD to work together with the local authority in the planning or execution of their work to help them understand the concerns of the local community, including the disabled,” he added.
