Tambang bas biasa, ekspres naik 10 sen
Oleh Ziauddin Sharuddin
zia@bharian.com.my




Ganti surcaj 30 peratus pada musim perayaan

SEREMBAN: Surcaj 30 peratus bagi bas henti-henti dan ekspres yang dilaksanakan pada musim perayaan tahun lalu akan ditukarkan kepada kenaikan tambang, kata Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.

Sehubungan itu, katanya, kadar kenaikan tambang bas henti-henti dan ekspres yang akan diumumkan tidak lama lagi hanya menyaksikan kenaikan 10 sen atau tiada sebarang perbezaan.



Sebagai contoh, katanya, kadar tambang bas dari Seremban dan Kuala Lumpur sebelum musim perayaan tahun lalu adalah RM4.70 dan selepas dikenakan surcaj RM1.30, kadar tambang yang dikenakan terhadap penumpang ialah RM6.

"Oleh itu, jika kenaikan tambang baru diumumkan, pengguna tetap membayar kadar tambang sebanyak RM6," katanya selepas menyampaikan 83 Surat Tawaran Kelulusan (STK) lesen teksi dan kereta sewa individu, di sini, semalam.

Kali terakhir kenaikan tambang bas dibuat pada 2005 menyebabkan Persatuan Pengusaha-Pengusaha Bas SeMalaysia meminta kerajaan menaikkan kadar tambang pengangkutan itu.

Walaupun harga minyak diturunkan, pengusaha syarikat bas memberi alasan kenaikan perlu berikutan peningkatan kos operasi, terutama kos penyelenggaraan, alat ganti dan upah pemandu.

Kerajaan sebelum ini dilaporkan bersetuju memberi kenaikan tambang 30 peratus bagi meringankan beban pengusaha pengangkutan awam itu termasuk surcaj 30 peratus tambang bas ekspres yang dikekalkan hingga hari ini.

Nazri berkata, Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) kini pada peringkat akhir untuk mendapatkan maklum balas kementerian berkaitan kenaikan kadar tambang.

"Saya juga berpendapat sudah tiba masanya kadar tambang diubah dan berharap semua pihak bersabar sebelum kata putus dibuat," katanya.

Sementara itu, katanya, kerajaan tidak teragak-agak membatalkan permit pemilik teksi yang mahu mengaut keuntungan mudah dengan membenarkan warga asing memandu teksi mereka.

Beliau berkata, LPKP mengesan beberapa pemilik teksi melakukan perbuatan itu dan kini dalam proses mengambil tindakan terhadap mereka.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, tindakan membatalkan lesen hanya diambil jika mereka melakukan kesalahan buat kali ketiga, manakala kesalahan pertama dan kedua, masing-masing dikenakan kompaun RM300.

"Kerajaan memandang serius perbuatan itu kerana permit teksi hanya untuk rakyat Malaysia supaya mereka dapat mencari rezeki dan bukan untuk warga Indonesia, Nepal dan Pakistan," katanya.

Bas percuma kurang promosi
Oleh Nor Azma Laila

Penduduk dakwa tidak tahu perkhidmatan ditawar MBPJ

PETALING JAYA: Penyediaan kemudahan pengangkutan awam percuma biasanya ditunggu dan pastinya mendapat sambutan daripada masyarakat apatah lagi ketika negara mengalami masalah kegawatan ekonomi menyebabkan semua orang ingin berjimat cermat.

Maka tidak hairan, jika perkhidmatan percuma yang ditawarkan sentiasa mendapat perhatian dan dimanfaatkan sebaiknya oleh masyarakat.



Namun, lain pula halnya dengan perkhidmatan bas komuniti Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) yang disediakan secara percuma untuk memudahkan penduduk sekitar Petaling Jaya bergerak ke destinasi yang ingin dituju di bandar raya itu.

Perkhidmatan bas yang mula beroperasi pada Ogos tahun lalu itu tidak mendapat sambutan dan dimanfaatkan sepenuhnya oleh penduduk sekitar Petaling Jaya yang kebiasaannya menggunakan perkhidmatan awam.

Tinjauan Sentral mendapati, bas berkenaan yang beroperasi bermula jam 9 pagi hingga 5 petang dari Isnin hingga Jumaat itu hanya digunakan oleh sebilangan penduduk saja, itu pun buat kali pertama kerana sebelum ini tidak pernah tahu mengenai kemudahan yang disediakan MBPJ itu.

Kebanyakan mereka yang ditemui berkata, mereka tidak tahu mengenai perkhidmatan bas yang disediakan itu kerana tidak banyak promosi atau publisiti dibuat oleh MBPJ untuk memberitahu masyarakat setempat mengenai kemudahan itu.

Peniaga, Ramlah Idris, 57, berkata beliau kali pertama menaiki bas berkenaan dan baru mendapat tahu mengenai kemudahan itu daripada cerita jiran dan cakap-cakap orang ramai ketika mereka berkunjung ke kedai beliau.

“Saya pernah nampak bas ini lalu di depan kedai saya tetapi tidak pula tahu ia menawarkan perkhidmatan secara percuma untuk memudahkan penduduk setempat bergerak ke destinasi yang diingini sekitar bandaraya ini.

“Orang ramai tidak tahu mengenai kemudahan ini, sebab itulah tidak mendapat sambutan yang menggalakkan. Kalau mereka tahu, saya rasa ramai yang ingin menggunakan perkhidmatan bas ini kerana ia percuma, apatah lagi dalam situasi sekarang yang mana semua orang ingin berjimat,” katanya.

Difahamkan, dua bas disediakan untuk memberikan kemudahan kepada penduduk sekitar dan bas berkenaan melalui beberapa kawasan terpilih di Petaling Jaya Selatan (PJS) dan Petaling Jaya Utara (PJU).

Di PJS, antara kawasan yang menjadi laluan bas itu ialah Jalan Sultan, Jalan Selangor, Flat Petaling Utama, Taman Medan, Desa Mentari, Flat Kampung Lindungan, Flat Taman Desa Ria, Jalan Othman dan Amcorp Mall.

Bagi menyediakan bas komuniti berkenaan, MBPJ membelanjakan kira-kira RM250,000 dengan RM200,000 untuk bas baru, manakala RM50,000 lagi bagi membaik pulih bas lama yang sedia ada.

Sementara itu, pekerja swasta, Roslan Hussein, 55, yang ditemui ketika menaiki bas berkenaan berkata, itu adalah kali pertama beliau menaiki bas komuniti yang disediakan MBPJ kerana tidak tahu mengenai perkhidmatan itu.

“Saya naik bas ini pun kerana diajak oleh rakan dan kebetulan ketika menunggu perkhidmatan awam lain, bas komuniti ini pula lalu, jadi saya naik.

“Saya harap pihak MBPJ membuat lebih banyak promosi atau publisiti mengenai bas ini kerana tidak ramai yang tahu mengenai perkhidmatan yang disediakan ini.

“Oleh itu, ramai yang tidak memanfaatkan bas ini dengan sebaik mungkin sedangkan ia boleh membantu penduduk bergerak ke destinasi yang ingin dituju dengan percuma,” katanya.

Suri rumah, Robyiah Abdullah, 45, berkata pandangan bahawa bas berkenaan hanya dikhaskan untuk membawa kakitangan MBPJ saja menyebabkan orang ramai tidak berani menggunakan perkhidmatan yang disediakan itu.

“Apatah lagi maklumat atau publisiti mengenai bas ini juga tidak digembar gembur di media massa atau oleh MBPJ sendiri menyebabkan tidak ramai yang tahu mengenai perkhidmatan bas komuniti percuma ini.

“Padahal ia boleh membantu penduduk setempat terutama yang tidak mempunyai kenderaan sendiri untuk ke destinasi yang tidak dilalui pengangkutan awam lain, malah secara percuma lagi,” katanya.

Malacca to allow mileage subsidy

Bus companies may claim mileage subsidy
By MARTIN CARVALHO

MALACCA: The state government is mulling over several proposals to improve the public transportation system which will include providing mileage claims for bus companies here beginning next year.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the move would ensure the estimated 250 buses cover all city and rural routes in the state irrespective of whether there are passengers to ferry or not.

“Whether there are passengers or not, the buses under the companies will still ply the scheduled routes and later claim mileage subsidy from the state,” he said during the Malacca Bus Operators Associations 50th anniversary celebrations here on Sunday night.

He said the system was currently being used in Melbourne, Australia where private bus companies claimed mileage subsidy from the authorities.

Based on initial projections, he said that the state would have to bear between RM3mil and RM4mil annually for the mileage allowance system to be successful.

He said a test run on the subsidy system would begin in two weeks to determine its feasibility for implementation next year.

He said the other proposal being weighed involved the state renting the 250 buses from the companies here and managing the public transportation service.

“Under this system, we will rent the buses for about RM10,000 for each vehicle per month.

“The state will then manage the bus service and pay for its fuel with the companies merely providing manpower and maintenance for the vehicles,” he added.


However, he said the proposal would incur a cost of some RM10.5mil annually and this may be a financial burden for the state.
TRANSIT comments here.

Basic observation - nice idea but the devil is in the details. The proposal that Ali Rustam is talking about would have the government pay for the capital cost of a fleet of old, broken down buses (by paying a rental fee of RM10,000 per bus). Then they will also pay for some of the operations costs (fuel).

So what does the public get out of this? The same buses with more money going into the hands of private operators.

That's not the way the system ought to work.

What should happen is this:

TRANSIT proposes that the CM look at our 4-Stakeholders model, in which a Local Public Transport Authority plans routes and offers these routes to competing bus operators on a tendered, time-limited contract. The system works this way:

* The Local Authority (one stakeholder) works with the government to pay for the capital costs (buses, hubs, depots, bus lanes)
* The operators (the second stakeholder group) provide the operations (paying for fuel, labour) and they are paid by the Local Authority.
* The residents and passengers (the 3rd stakeholder group) monitor the bus service and give feedback to the operators and the Local Authority
* The wakil rakyat (the last stakeholder group) will be responsible for monitoring the service provided (in the legislative assembly and subcommittee) by making decisions about the contract.

Cheers, m

Khidmat dapat sambutan hangat - Konduktor
KOTA KINABALU 8 Julai - Sejak dilancarkan awal Jun lalu, perkhidmatan bas dalam bandar atau lebih dikenali Citybus mendapat sambutan hangat daripada orang ramai.

Salah seorang konduktor Citybus, Sukardi Samsudin, 19, memberitahu, adakalanya beliau tidak menang tangan melayan penumpang yang sentiasa menaiki bas itu.

''Tidak sampai lima minit bas sudah penuh. Ada ketikanya hendak makan pun terpaksa cepat-cepat sebab bas di hadapan sudah penuh dan perlu bergerak," katanya.

Katanya, sehingga kini mereka masih mampu mengawal keadaan demi memastikan keselesaan penumpang.

Utusan Malaysia difahamkan, pada masa ini terdapat sebanyak 16 buah bas Citybus yang beroperasi di dua sektor perjalanan iaitu sektor satu dan sektor dua.

Bagi sektor satu, operasi bas itu adalah sejauh 5.9 kilometer bermula di Terminal Bas Wawasan Plaza (TBWP), melalui Wisma San Hin, Pasar Besar Kota Kinabalu, Hotel Hyatt, Wisma Merdeka, Jesselton Point, Segama, Kompleks Asia City, Balai Polis Karamunsing dan Bank Simpanan Nasional, sebelum kembali ke TBWP.

Begit juga dengan sektor dua yang bermula di terminal utama ke Balai Polis Karamunsing, Bangunan Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), Kompleks Karamunsing, Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (SRJK) Chung Hwa, Wisma Budaya, Perpustakaan Negeri, Wisma Dang Bandang, Hotel Shangrila, Kompleks Karamunsing dan Bangunan Bank Simpanan Nasional.

Perkhidmatan Citybus itu juga menyediakan sebuah bas khas bagi orang ramai yang ingin ke Kompleks Persekutuan dan 1Borneo dengan kadar tambang pergi-balik adalah RM1.

Operasi bas berwarna kuning-hijau itu bermula seawal pukul enam pagi hingga 10 malam.

Seorang lagi konduktor Citybus, Omar Conggong, 29, berkata, bertugas di situ memerlukan banyak kesabaran kerana terpaksa berhadapan dengan pelbagai kerenah pelanggan.

''Kami tidak nafikan terdapat segelintir penumpang yang cerewet dan merungut kerana tidak mendapat tempat duduk meskipun membayar tambang. Tapi, tidak kisahlah, kerana semua itu kami tidak boleh elak," ujarnya.

PENUMPANG ke pusat bandar menggunakan perkhidmatan Citybus dari terminal bas Wawasan Plaza, Kota Kinabalu, semalam. - UTUSAN/Ghazali Basri

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



KOTA KINABALU 8 Julai - Warga ibu kota ini kini boleh ke mana-mana sekitar bandar raya dengan kadar tambang serendah 50 sen menerusi perkhidmatan bas dalam bandar atau lebih dikenali Citybus.

Selain menawarkan tambang murah, bas ini turut menyediakan perkhidmatan selesa seperti penghawa dingin dan audio visual kepada penumpang.

Bukan itu sahaja, penumpang tidak lagi perlu menunggu lama kerana perkhidmatan yang bermula 6 pagi hingga 10 malam itu mempunyai kekerapan 15 minit sebuah bas.

Ia sekali gus memudahkan pergerakan warga kota dan memberikan kebaikan terutama mereka yang tidak memiliki kenderaan persendirian dan bertugas di sekitar bandar raya.

Tinjauan Utusan Malaysia di Terminal Bas Wawasan Plaza (TBWP) mendapati, orang ramai terutama dari kawasan Penampang, Menggatal, Inanam dan Likas berasak-asak menaiki Citybus.

Kebanyakan mereka bekerja di Wisma Merdeka, Asia City, Kompleks Karamunsing dan tidak kurang juga ramai penumpang menaiki Citybus untuk ke Pasar Besar Kota Kinabalu.

Perjalanan mengelilingi bandar raya sejauh 5.4 kilometer itu mengambil masa kira-kira 10 hingga 15 minit sahaja.

Seorang penumpang, Siti Jamil, 52, memberitahu, sebelum Citybus diperkenalkan, dia terpaksa berjalan dari TBWP ke Pasar Besar Kota Kinabalu.

''Sekarang lebih mudah dengan adanya bas dalam bandar, meskipun terpaksa menaiki bas dua kali tetapi penumpang dari pasar besar tidak lagi menunggu bas berjam-jam lamanya sebelum ini.

''Ia memudahkan perjalanan warga tua seperti saya. Lagipun bas ini amat selesa kerana mempunyai penghawa dingin," katanya yang tinggal di kawasan Luyang, dekat sini.

Suri rumah dari Likas, Norshareda Mudin, 28, berpendapat perkhidmatan bas dalam bandar telah berjaya mengurangkan kesesakan di bandar raya Kota Kinabalu.

Katanya, kemasukan bas besar dan mini ke dalam bandar sebelum adanya Citybus, mengakibatkan kesesakan teruk terutama pada waktu tengah hari dan petang iaitu selepas waktu pejabat.

''Kalau dahulu, jalan raya bandar raya Kota Kinabalu sesak bukan sahaja disebabkan jumlah kenderaan yang semakin bertambah tetapi juga bas awam yang terlalu banyak.

''Tetapi kini tidak lagi. Kesesakan semakin berkurangan dan pemandangan bandar raya Kota Kinabalu juga lebih baik dan bersih. Saya lihat bukan sahaja orang tempatan yang menaiki Citybus, tetapi juga pelancong asing," katanya.

Norshareda berkata, sebagai pengguna dia berharap pengusaha Citybus mengekalkan kadar tambang kerana ia amat berpatutan terutama bagi yang berpendapatan rendah.

Sementara itu, ada juga di kalangan penumpang yang tidak berpuas hati dengan pengenalan perkhidmatan Citybus yang berkuat kuasa 1 Jun lalu.

Jarmores Jenes, 26, berkata, ini kerana dia terpaksa menambah peruntukan perbelanjaan tambang bas sehala dari Menggatal ke tempat kerjanya kepada RM2 berbanding RM1 sebelum ini.

''Memang berat kerana terpaksa menambah kos tambang tetapi saya tiada pilihan lain," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, ibarat kata pepatah, alah bisa tegal biasa, warga kota perlu menyesuaikan diri dengan pembaharuan yang bertujuan memberi manfaat kepada semua pihak itu.

Secara keseluruhannya, perkhidmatan Citybus ini bukan sahaja dapat menjimatkan masa menunggu tetapi juga jauh lebih selepas dan bersih berbanding bas awam yang lain.

Buses May Aid Climate Battle in Poor Cities

nothing to do w/ malaysia, but sometimes we can learn a bit from how other people do things...

Buses May Aid Climate Battle in Poor Cities

By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL
BOGOTÁ, Colombia — Like most thoroughfares in booming cities of the developing world, Bogotá’s Seventh Avenue resembles a noisy, exhaust-coated parking lot — a gluey tangle of cars and the rickety, smoke-puffing private minibuses that have long provided transportation for the masses.

But a few blocks away, sleek red vehicles full of commuters speed down the four center lanes of Avenida de las Américas. The long, segmented, low-emission buses are part of a novel public transportation system called bus rapid transit, or B.R.T. It is more like an above-ground subway than a collection of bus routes, with seven intersecting lines, enclosed stations that are entered through turnstiles with the swipe of a fare card and coaches that feel like trams inside.

Versions of these systems are being planned or built in dozens of developing cities around the world — Mexico City, Cape Town, Jakarta, Indonesia, and Ahmedabad, India, to name a few — providing public transportation that improves traffic flow and reduces smog at a fraction of the cost of building a subway.

But the rapid transit systems have another benefit: they may hold a key to combating climate change. Emissions from cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles in the booming cities of Asia, Africa and Latin America account for a rapidly growing component of heat-trapping gases linked to global warming. While emissions from industry are decreasing, those related to transportation are expected to rise more than 50 percent by 2030 in industrialized and poorer nations. And 80 percent of that growth will be in the developing world, according to data presented in May at an international conference in Bellagio, Italy, sponsored by the Asian Development Bank and the Clean Air Institute.

To be effective, a new international climate treaty that will be negotiated in Copenhagen in December must include “a policy response to the CO2 emissions from transport in the developing world,” the Bellagio conference statement concluded.

Bus rapid transit systems like Bogotá’s, called TransMilenio, might hold an answer. Now used for an average of 1.6 million trips each day, TransMilenio has allowed the city to remove 7,000 small private buses from its roads, reducing the use of bus fuel — and associated emissions — by more than 59 percent since it opened its first line in 2001, according to city officials.



In recognition of this feat, TransMilenio last year became the only large transportation project approved by the United Nations to generate and sell carbon credits. Developed countries that exceed their emissions limits under the Kyoto Protocol, or that simply want to burnish a “green” image, can buy credits from TransMilenio to balance their emissions budgets, bringing Bogotá an estimated $100 million to $300 million so far, analysts say.

Indeed, the city has provided a model of how international programs to combat climate change can help expanding cities — the number of cars in China alone could increase sevenfold by 2030, according to the International Energy Agency — pay for transit systems that would otherwise be unaffordable.

“Bogotá was huge and messy and poor, so people said, ‘If Bogotá can do it, why can’t we?’ ” said Enrique Peñalosa, an economist and a former mayor of the city who took TransMilenio from a concept to its initial opening in 2001 and is now advising other cities. In 2008, Mexico City opened a second successful bus rapid transit line that has already reduced carbon dioxide emissions there, according to Lee Schipper, a transportation expert at Stanford University, and the city has applied to sell carbon credits as well.

But bus rapid transit systems are not the answer for every city. In the United States, where cost is less constraining, some cities, like Los Angeles, have built B.R.T.’s, but they tend to lack many of the components of comprehensive systems like TransMilenio, like fully enclosed stations, and they serve as an addition to existing rail networks.



In some sprawling cities in India, where a tradition of scooter use may make bus rapid transit more difficult to create, researchers are working to develop a new model of tuk-tuk, or motorized cab, that is cheap and will run on alternative fuels or with a highly efficient engine. “There are three million auto rickshaws in India alone, and the smoke is astonishing, so this could have a huge impact,” said Stef van Dongen, director of Enviu, an environmental network group in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, that is sponsoring the research.

Bus rapid transit systems have not always worked well in cities that have tried them, either. In New Delhi, for example, the experiment foundered in part because it proved difficult to protect bus lanes from traffic. And a system that does not succeed in drawing passengers out of their cars just adds buses to existing vehicles on the roads, making traffic and emissions worse.

But with its wide streets, dense population and a tradition of bus travel, Bogotá had the ingredients for success. To create TransMilenio, the city commandeered two to four traffic lanes in the middle of major boulevards, isolating them with low walls to create the system’s so-called tracks. On the center islands that divide many of Bogotá’s two-way streets, the city built dozens of distinctive metal-and-glass stations. Just as in a subway, the multiple doors on the buses slide open level with the platform, providing easy access for strollers and older riders. Hundreds of passengers can wait on the platforms, avoiding the delays that occur when passengers each pay as they board.

Mr. Peñalosa noted that the negative stereotypes about bus travel required some clever rebranding. Now, he said, upscale condominiums advertise that they are near TransMilenio lines. “People don’t say, ‘I’m taking the bus,’ they say, ‘I’m taking TransMilenio,’ ” he added, as he rode at rush hour recently, chatting with other passengers.

Jorge Engarrita, 45, a leather worker who was riding TransMilenio to work, said the system had “changed his life,” reducing his commuting time to 40 minutes with one transfer from two or three hours on several buses. Free shuttle buses carry residents from outlying districts to TransMilenio terminals.

To the dismay of car owners, Bogotá removed one-third of its street parking to make room for TransMilenio and imposed alternate-day driving restrictions determined by license plate numbers, forcing car owners onto the system.

With an extensive route system, TransMilenio moves more passengers per mile every hour than almost any of the world’s subways. Most poorer cities that have built subways, like Manila and Lagos, Nigeria, can afford to build only a few limited lines because of the expense.

Subways cost more than 30 times as much per mile to build than a B.R.T. system, and three times as much to maintain. And bus rapid transit systems can be built more quickly. “Almost all rapidly developing cities understand that they need a metro or something like it, and you can get a B.R.T. by 2010 or a metro by 2060,” said Walter Hook, executive director of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, in New York.

Although TransMilenio buses run on diesel, their efficient engines mean they emit less than half the nitrous oxide, particulate matter and carbon dioxide of the older minibuses. Cleaner fuels were either too expensive or did not work at Bogotá’s altitude, 9,000 feet above sea level.

TransMilenio is building more lines and underpasses to allow the buses to bypass clogged intersections, but for the moment the real challenge is overcrowding. Juan Gómez, 21, a businessman, takes TransMilenio only on days when he cannot drive, and he griped that it was often hard to find a seat.

“It’s O.K., but I prefer the car,” he said.
=====


Dispatchers at the control center monitor the more than 1,000 buses traveling along TransMilenio routes. To increase speed and efficiency, controllers are in contact with drivers and advise when to bypass another bus that is stopped at a station to load passengers.

Nazri Calls For Improvement In Quality Of Public Transport
July 16, 2009 22:08 PM
> http://bernama.com.my/bernama/v5/new....php?id=425977

KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 (Bernama) -- Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz today called for an improvement to the quality of public transport services in line with the higher fares effective Aug 1 he announced Thursday.

He said enforcement and monitoring would be stepped up to ensure that public transport operators adhered to regulations.

A data bank of drivers would be established to monitor the attitude and discipline of drivers, he said, warning of tough action against unethical drivers.

"Taxi drivers will be warned after the first offence and fined after the second. A third offence will result in revocation of their licence," he said at the presentation of 831 offer letters to taxi drivers in the Klang Valley, here.

He said consumers could write to him about unethical bus and taxi drivers for investigation.

Nazri told reporters that the increase in the bus and taxi fares was justified and that it would encourage operators to provide a better service.

He said the decision on the new fares had taken into consideration government initiatives and subsidies to help the public transport sector, such as fuel subsidy and toll fare reduction.

Consideration was also given to balancing the interests of operators and those of consumers so that the increase did not burden the latter, many of whom were from the low-income group.

Meanwhile, in KUANTAN, the Peninsular Malaysia Malay Bus Drivers Association welcomed the fare increase with the hope that it would improve the welfare of bus drivers as well as enable them enjoy a salary increase.

Its president, Mohd Yasin Yacob, said the welfare of bus drivers had been neglected, but with the fare increase he hoped that it would be given more attention by bus companies.

In KOTA KINABALU, Consumers Association of Sabah (Cash) president Datuk Patrick Sindu said the fare increase would burden the people, especially those with low income.

"For example, parents with low income with more than one child will feel the pinch due to the higher school bus fare.

He said that though the hike would be beneficial in terms of income for bus and taxi drivers, the situation might be the opposite in Sabah as the majority of the bus and taxi drivers in the state were foreigners.

"This would mean these foreigners would enjoy all or part of the increase and not the local people ... this must be rectified," he said.

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.

Jangan hanya duduk di pejabat

Oleh MOHD HAFEED KHALID
pengarang@utusan.com.my



ANGGOTA penguat kuasa Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur menyerahkan saman kepada seorang pemandu bas yang dikesan melakukan kesalahan jalan raya semasa Ops Halang di Kuala Lumpur, kelmarin.

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



KUALA LUMPUR 16 Julai – Pengusaha bas awam di ibu negara diminta turun padang dan melihat sendiri kerenah pemandu mereka ketika di jalan raya sebelum menyalahkan pihak berkuasa yang menyaman pemandu terbabit kerana melakukan kesalahan.

Penolong Pegawai Penguat Kuasa Kanan DBKL, Ashari Ahmad berkata, pengusaha bas tidak akan tahu perangai pemandu mereka jika hanya duduk di pejabat dan mendengar cerita dari sebelah pihak.

“Tidak perlu sertai operasi kami tetapi cukup dengan meninjau sendiri sikap pemandu yang mereka upah,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas Operasi Bersepadu Pengangkutan Awam dan Perdagangan (Ops Halang) di sini semalam.

Operasi siri lima itu membabitkan empat pihak berkuasa iaitu DBKL, Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM), Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) dan Jabatan Imigresen.

Ia membabitkan 23 pegawai dan anggota dan diadakan di lima lokasi utama iaitu Jalan Tun Tan Siew Sin, Jalan Tun H.S Lee, Lebuh Pudu, Jalan Hang Kasturi dan Jalan Silang.

Dalam operasi itu, walaupun pemandu bas terbabit menggunakan khidmat tonto, mereka masih gagal mengelak daripada dikenakan saman oleh pihak berkuasa.

Sebanyak 94 saman dikeluarkan sepanjang dua jam Ops Halang itu iaitu 54 saman oleh DBKL, 38 oleh PDRM dan dua lagi oleh JPJ.

Antara kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh pemandu bas ialah berhenti terlalu lama dan meletak kenderaan awam di garisan kuning sehingga mengganggu kelancaran lalu lintas.

Dalam operasi itu juga, DBKL turut menunda sebuah kereta yang membuat halangan dengan diletakkan di garisan kuning.

Ashari berkata, jumlah notis kali ini menunjukkan peningkatan berbanding operasi sebelum ini dan ia dipercayai hasil perancangan terperinci yang dilakukan oleh pihaknya termasuk dari segi ketepatan waktu.

Tambahnya, operasi itu bertujuan mendidik pemandu bas dan teksi supaya mematuhi undang-undang jalan raya demi kebaikan dan keselesaan semua pihak.

Beliau berkata, statistik lengkap operasi itu akan dihantar ke Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) untuk tindakan susulan terhadap pengusaha bas.

10 years on, bus company workers’ salaries and EPF remain unpaid
BY ZALINAH NOORDIN


KUALA LUMPUR: After more than 10 years, some 350 workers of the now defunct Len Omnibus Co Bhd are still waiting for their salaries and EPF contributions.

Although some of those who were not paid their dues had passed away, those surviving, many who are in their 50s, are fighting for their monies.

They claimed that their EPF contributions had not been remitted since 1997 while those who had retired were waiting for their gratuity payments.

The EPF contributions owing to the workers were estimated at RM100,000 while the unpaid gratuity and salaries amounted to more than RM1mil.

A representative of the group Abdul Rahman Ismail, a former ticketing officer with the company for 20 years, said those affected were drivers, conductors and clerical workers.

“We’ve been referred to the Labour Office but we’ve been sent on a wild goose chase. Each time we were there we were treated rudely,” he said.

Three of the seven directors of Len Omnibus have filed for bankruptcy and one has absconded.

“So what’s going to happen to us if the directors are declared a bankrupt? Does it mean that we won’t get the money that we’ve worked so hard for all these years?”

He was one of the 30 disgruntled workers who had sought help from Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk T. Murugiah who was at the Kampung Sri Batu Kemas Community Centre.

“We have no choice but to see Datuk Murugiah as we’ve been made to wait for so long. Ten of the workers have died while waiting for the money,” Abdul Rahman said.

Another worker, Yap Lai Heng, a former bus driver with the company said that he lost his job after it went bust in 2002.

Not having received his salary since the late 2001, Yap, who had been a bus driver with the company for 15 years, has exhausted his savings and is now doing odd-jobs to make ends meet.

Murugiah said that he would look into the matter and gave the agencies involved one month to solve the issue.

“I’ll see to it that they receive their salaries and the parties involved have to look for ways to solve the matter,” he added.

Terminal bas daif
Oleh Abdullah Wahab
abwahab@hmetro.com.my





SHAH ALAM: Ibarat kera di hutan disusukan, anak pula mati kelaparan, itulah yang berlaku kepada Terminal Bas dan Teksi Seksyen 17 di sini apabila ia seolah-olah terlepas pandang oleh pihak berwajib sekali gus menyebabkan prasarana di situ semakin uzur tanpa pembelaan sewajarnya.

Terminal bas dan teksi yang dibina kira-kira 40 tahun lalu sehingga kini belum ada perubahan menyebabkan pengguna dan peniaga di kawasan berkenaan tidak selesa.

Pengerusi Persatuan Teksi dan Kereta Sewa Seksyen 17, Borhan Karim, berkata kawasan terminal terbabit agak sempit dan hanya seluas kira-kira dua hektar dan ia tidak dapat menampung 100 bas dan lebih 65 teksi yang beroperasi di situ setiap hari.

“Perhentian ini terminal utama di Selangor, tetapi prasarananya tiada. Pengguna terpaksa berdiri kerana tempat duduk terhad.

“Itu belum termasuk kenderaan awam yang keluar masuk. Ada yang berebut dengan bas dan teksi menyebabkan kesesakan teruk di sini,” katanya.

Borhan berkata, persatuan ada mengusulkan perkara itu kepada kerajaan negeri dan pihaknya difahamkan ada perancangan dibuat kerajaan, tetapi pelaksanaan belum dibuat.

“Terminal ini menerima penumpang dari seluruh negara, tapi kerajaan seolah-olah terlepas pandang membiarkan kawasan ini beroperasi dalam keadaan daif.

“Di Selangor, kita tertinggal, peruntukan untuk kemudahan awam untuk kawasan ini tiada menyebabkan pengguna dan peniaga terpaksa duduk dalam keadaan tidak selesa,” katanya kesal.

Menurutnya, selain itu, pondok polis tidak dibina di situ berikutan kawasan terhad manakala penguat kuasa Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) terpaksa menyediakan meja untuk mengawasi kenderaan keluar masuk di situ.

Maxis East Coast Territorial head Mazlan Mokhtar said the buses would have Hotlink logos painted on them.

“This is our pilot project and this is one way for us to reach out to the people of Kelantan to show that we are reciprocating their support for subscribing to Hotlink services,” he said.

The function was launched by state Local Government, Tourism and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan.

Takiyuddin commended Ma-xis for its effort in helping the lower income group to reduce their expenses for the day.
