I hope they do not intend to use the buses for off-peak times - these buses should be used for feeder service into various 'tamans' and 'jayas' rather than as regular route buses.

As for the issue with parking at the stations - it is up to RapidKL to enforce the rules and the clear routes for buses and bomba...so if they do not it is their own mistake.

Any news on any BRT developments??,i hope they do cause its pretty useful in certain areas in KL.
As I said, I think these buses are more for feeder services - will have to see the plans tho.

No news on BRT - but BRT is going to be a SPAD initiative and the process was BET, bus lanes, BRT.

So we have to see some expansion of BET and talk of improved bus lanes before we hear about BRT.

Terminal open for short-distance buses (Streets-NST)
14 May 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: The bus terminal in Jalan Hang Tuah will start operating tomorrow to cater for those on short journeys to Seremban and Tanjung Malim.
Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry secretary-general Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib said the facility was to accommodate short-haul express bus services following the four-month closure of Puduraya Terminal for maintenance and renovation works.

"The temporary bus terminal at National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil will cater for long-distance express buses," he said in a statement.

For information, call the City Hall Transport Department at 03-2614 4222 or 1-800 883 25. -- Bernama

I wonder, is there any demand for late night urban bus service?

In other countries, when the train service stops at late night, they have late night bus service as a mean to provide public transport at late night or early morning (before the start of rail service)...

Nadzmi says the Government should tender out specific routes to private companies, with the most suitable candidates chosen. In return, the operator is paid a fixed fee per km that they run, which includes the operators’ cost plus a profit margin.

Ticket sales on the other hand should be entirely in the hands of the Government, using prepaid tickets.

“All revenue should go directly to the Government. While the Government may not necessarily make a profit from this (after paying the operators’ fixed fee) it would certainly not be making the losses Prasarana is enduring today. So the Government will be paying less to subsidise public transport.”

To ensure that operators provide a high quality of service, certain key performance indicators or a customer service index can be created to ensure that bus companies do their jobs well.

Interestingly, Nadzmi’s plans are not too different from those of the recently-formed Land Public Transport Authority or SPAD.

But Nadzmi had earlier expressed his disappointment about not being included in the urban public transport laboratory that had come up with plans to revamp the public bus sector.
Why weren't the operators looped in by the lab ? Doesn't make sense, don't they have to do case studies to come up with all those 'ideas' ? Sheeshh.

the lab was really a "government-to-government" gab session - only a few representatives from the industry were invited, and only after most of the decisions had been made.

Future forums will have to be different - but why wait for SPAD - everyone is invited to make use of transitmy.org as their public transport forum!

(this forum is good but we're kind of biased)

Malacca to spend RM2.35mil to buy 10 new buses
By MARTIN CARVALHO Friday July 23, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast



End of the road: The state is seeking some RM36mil from the Federal
Government to enable 11 bus companies in Malacca to replace 206
run-down buses.


MALACCA: The state will spend some RM2.35mil to acquire 10 new 40-seater coaches for its Panorama bus service in a move to upgrade the public transportation system here.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said an order had been placed for the coaches from Scomi Engineering & Logistics Sdn Bhd, a company specialising in the building of buses and coaches.

“The move is part of a RM36mil transportation package plan which the state is seeking from the Federal Government.

“It is to upgrade the public transport system in the state in line with the National Key Result Area,” he told reporters this after visiting the Bumi Hijau programme in Bukit Katil.

He said the air-conditioned coaches would be equipped with the latest facilities to provide comfort for passengers.

The Malacca government, he added, had decided to operate the buses via its subsidiary PM Cultural & Tourism Sdn Bhd rather than leasing them from local bus company Town Bus Service Sdn Bhd.

Mohd Ali said the former Panorama bus service leasing deal resulted in losses of RM1.2mil over the last three years.

The state has submitted its application to the Federal Government for the RM36mil allocation following approval from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to improve the public transportation system here.

The money would be used as a revolving fund and a bank guarantee to enable 11 local bus operators to obtain the necessary bank loans to replace some 206 old buses operating within the city as well as the Alor Gajah and Jasin districts.

The funds would also be used to provide subsidies to bus operators to ensure services on ‘social’ routes that are usually not covered, owing to low profitability.

In a separate matter, Mohd Ali said the state was also keen to source electric buses from China for future use in the city.

“I saw some of the buses while in China recently and they are pollution-free as they do not emit any smoke,” he said.

Scomi eyes RM36m Malacca bus refurbishment project
Published: 2010/08/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0wAf6WYT7



SCOMI Engineering Bhd (7366) wants to refurbish the remaining 190 buses under a RM36 million budget allocated by the Malacca state government.

Scomi Engineering has been given the mandate by the state government to refurbish an initial 10 buses worth RM2.3 million.

The state government has set aside the RM36 million refurbishment fund for a total of 200 buses to help bus operators replace their fleet.

"If we do a good job, then we hope to take on more buses for the project," Scomi Engineering president Syahrunizam Samsudin said.
Syahrunizam spoke during a visit to the New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Bhd (NSTP) office in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

About 15 delegates from the group, led by its president and group chief executive officer Shah Hakim Zain, were given an insight into the operations of three newspapers in the NSTP stable - the New Straits Times, Berita Harian and Harian Metro - as well as other aspects of the group's operations such as advertising.

On hand to greet them were NST group managing editor Datuk Zainul Arifin Mohammed Isa, group editor Datuk Syed Nadzri Syed Harun and Berita Harian deputy group editor Mahfar Ali.

The delegation was later treated to a durian feast organised by Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority at the NSTP office building.

I think Ipoh have the worst public transport compared with Penang, KL and JB. Ipoh may have public transport much more worse than Seremban, Malacca, and Klang.

Most buses in Ipoh is very old, and not air-conditioned.
Bus routes in Ipoh is not systematic (no systematic bus routes able to be mapped), and the time schedule not consistent.
Bus service in Ipoh (intracity) closed too early. I've have to take taxi from Ipoh Parade to Medan Kidd have a bus back to Kampar in 7:40pm, I've wait for bus for 40 mins.
-> And Ipohese tell me buses in Ipoh closed early because of most intracity buses are operated by small private operators. I've noticed there are at least 3 companies operate intracity bus service, more than 3 companies operate medium range commuter service (Ipoh-K. Kangsar, Ipoh-Kampar -> so called Intrastate Bus). Intrastate bus able to provide service until 10.30pm for certain lines, but it is useless because intracity bus does not operate until 10.30pm, at least until 9.45pm.

Hentian Puduraya dibuka Februari


2010/12/31
JOHOR BAHRU: Hentian Puduraya yang sedang ditutup bagi kerja menaik taraf sejak April lalu akan dibuka dan dirasmikan secara serentak dengan Terminal Bersepadu Selatan-Bandar Tasik Selatan (TBS-BTS), Februari ini.

Pengerusi Uda Holdings Berhad, Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, berkata perasmian serentak kedua-dua hab pengangkutan awam itu adalah berdasarkan arahan Kementerian Wilayah Persekutuan dan Kesejahteraan Bandar.
"Uda baru terima arahan dari kementerian untuk mengadakan majlis perasmian Hentian Puduraya serentak dengan Terminal Bersepadu Selatan," katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.
Beliau juga berkata terminal perkhidmatan bas ekspres ke utara diyakini akan terus beroperasi di Hentian Puduraya yang terletak di tengah-tengah bandar raya Kuala Lumpur walaupun operasinya dibenarkan dijalankan sama ada di Puduraya atau pun di TBS-BTS.

"Bas dari selatan semuanya sudah diarahkan oleh Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) untuk beroperasi di TBS-BTS tetapi bas dari utara diberi pilihan sama ada beroperasi di Puduraya atau TBS-BTS.

"Tapi nampaknya pengusaha bas ke utara lebih gemar berhenti di Puduraya sebab ia perhentian utama di tengah pusat bandar Kuala Lumpur dan Insya-Allah bas ke utara akan terus berhenti di Puduraya," katanya. - BERNAMA

Rapid Penang to hit the roads in all NCER states
By Marina Emmanuel Published: 2010/03/16

RAPID Penang Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd, will expand its bus service beyond Penang to other parts of the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) next year.

It plans to offer inter-city bus services in Kedah, Perlis and Perak.

Rapid Penang chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad said the transport service provider will be talking to the federal government and related agencies on its proposed expansion, which it hopes will take off by the middle of 2011.

"We have been approached by the various state governments within the economic corridor to offer our services and we think this move will spur further development within the NCER," he told Business Times after launching the company's latest 102th bus route from the Penang International Airport to the Hard Rock Hotel in Batu Ferringi on the island yesterday.

Azhar said Penang will continue to serve as Rapid Penang's hub, and the company is likely to expand its current fleet of buses to serve the new routes in the northern states.

Rapid Penang currently operates 280 buses on Penang island and Seberang Prai and is set to expand its fleet to 350 by June.

"If we expand into the NCER, we are likely to add a further 250 new buses to our fleet," Azhar said.

The NCER was launched in 2007 with the intention to pump prime the economies of Kedah, Penang, Perak and Perlis.

The masterplan of the economic corridor focuses on the long-term enhancement of the agriculture, manufacturing and services/tourism industries, as well as infrastructure, transport and logistics, in supporting the four states.

Azhar said in further boosting the transport and logistics component of the NCER, Rapid Penang is keen to supplement its activities once the Butterworth-Padang Besar double-tracking railway project is completed.

In boosting tourism activities in Penang, Azhar said in addition to working with Firefly in offering free rides to the airlines' passengers from the Penang International Airport to Weld Quay in George Town, the company is now in talks with budget carrier AirAsia to do the same.

"We are also looking into partnering more hotels in Penang."

Rapid Penang commenced operations in 2007 and now services 42 routes in Penang.

I wonder why can't Ipoh have private companies provide service like Cityliner for Seremban..is it protectionsim for the dying Kinta Bus service?

There could alot of demands as many students in Ipoh.Pity no proactive action by state goverrnment of either spectrum! Even Kedah and Perlis will be serviced by RapidPenang! Perak bila lagi!!

The "new" RapidKL Bus BIT Ticketing System. Looks just like the existing TnG system with onboard sales/reload machine + the Fleet Tracking System.
