What?? I thought the upgrading of the station is for the purpose of physically intergrating these two systems? Apparently it is not. And we have to wait more time for a single ticket system??

Hong Kong integrated the MTR and KCR railways in 2 months and integrated the ticketing system in less than 1 year.

KL - nearly 5 years and counting.....

Puduraya needs a makeover fast


WHEN it comes to travelling between the states, one of the most important mode is by express bus. Sadly, the Pudu bus station and the express bus services offered there are a nightmare.

The station’s condition is a real eyesore.

Although some efforts to restore the building have been made, including painting and changing the platform signs and counter numbers, the station still has a foul smell, especially down at the platforms, where the exhaust fumes of the buses cannot escape due to poor ventilation.

The authorities should consider opening up the bus station or at least figure out a way to direct the fumes away from the platforms.

Noise pollution is another issue.

With bus conductors yelling out where each bus is headed to, coupled with the honking of the buses, it is worse than a wet market.

Sometimes, you can get a heart attack when a honk goes off suddenly from one of the buses and this happens despite a no-honking sign displayed at the platforms.

The employees of the bus companies are also rude. What will foreigners think?

Bus conductors can also be seen cursing passengers and grumbling.

Most of the time, the bus drivers are grumpy and when passengers try to tell them where they wish to stop or even ask a question, they will just snap back. If this continues, tourists will be annoyed and may refrain from taking the express bus services. What will this do to the tourism sector of our country?

One more thing that annoys me is that the buses are not punctual at all.

When you buy a ticket for a 1.30pm bus, you expect the bus to leave at 1.30pm or at most 1.35pm to give allowances for late passengers.

However, these buses invariably arrive at 2.pm or leave at 2pm.

If I wanted to leave at 2pm, wouldn’t I have bought tickets for the 2pm bus?

The buses delay and wait for their tickets to be sold out before they leave the station. They fail to realise that they would get more passengers if they provided good service and were more punctual.

Touts are another problem. They harass you as you enter the station, asking where you are going. Their latest tactic is to ask where you are going and try to be friendly.

If one mentions a place their bus companies do not service, they will just disappear. However, if you ignore them, they will continue to follow you and try to strike up a conversation.

If they want customers, they have to win them over. They should not harass customers but should take the effort to proivide better serivice.

Their shouting along the walkways between the counters is simply annoying and also contributes to the noise pollution.

I suggest that the Kuala Lumpur City Hall take more action, especially against the touts. There should also be fines for buses that ignore the nohonking signs.

Puduraya itself could do with a makeover. Having said that, I do applaud the bus companies who go the extra mile in keeping their buses clean. Kudos to them.

Open to public: The new Masjid Jamek Station Plaza.

“The RM5mil development by the DBKL aims to provide a more comfortable concourse area and increase accessibility and mobility of LRT users for both Ampang and Kelana Jaya Lines.

“The reasons for the delay in the project involved increase in cost, changes in design as well as the constraints at the working area.

“The second phase of this project is by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd and is a full integration of the ticketing system between the lines.

“It is expected to be completed by October 2009 at a cost of RM5mil to RM10mil,” he said.

Hakim also said that an exit near Hong Kong Bank would be the third phase of the integration.

Fasa kedua Plaza Pejalan Kaki
Oleh NOR AZAN FITRI AHMAD HIDZIR

KUALA LUMPUR 19 Nov. - Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) dijangka memulakan pembinaan fasa kedua atau sambungan fasa satu Plaza Pejalan Kaki Stesen Transit Aliran Ringan (LRT) Masjid Jamek pada awal tahun depan.

Ketua Pengarah Teknikalnya, Zulkifli Yusoff berkata, pembinaan fasa kedua itu bertujuan menyambung kedua-dua stesen LRT di situ bagi memudahkan orang ramai untuk menggunakan perkhidmatan yang disediakan.

Jelasnya, ia juga bertujuan untuk memberikan keselesaan serta kemudahan kepada orang ramai kerana mereka tidak perlu lagi melintas jalan untuk menggunakan perkhidmatan LRT yang berada di seberang jalan, sebaliknya hanya perlu menggunakan eskalator untuk ke sana.

"Proses pembinaan fasa kedua ini akan dimulakan pada awal tahun depan dan dijangka siap untuk beroperasi pada penghujung September atau awal Oktober.

"Kos keseluruhan pembinaan fasa kedua itu akan ditanggung sepenuhnya oleh SPNB dan ia melibatkan perbelanjaan sekitar RM10 juta," katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas majlis perasmian Plaza Pejalan Kaki Stesen LRT Masjid Jamek di sini hari ini.

Majlis perasmian tersebut disempurnakan oleh Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Ab. Hakim Borhan. Turut hadir Ketua Pengarah Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), Datuk Salleh Yusup serta Pengarah Jabatan Pengangkutan Bandar DBKL, Ir. Dr. Leong Siew Mun.

Sementara itu, Ab. Hakim berkata, pembinaan fasa pertama plaza pejalan kaki itu adalah untuk memberikan keselesaan dan ruang yang lebih kondusif untuk para pengguna yang menggunakan perkhidmatan yang disediakan.

Jelasnya, kos pembinaan fasa pertama itu adalah sekitar RM5 juta dan ia dibiayai secara bersama oleh DBKL dan SPNB sebelum diserahkan kepada Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn. Bhd. (RapidKL).

"Pada mulanya fasa pertama ini dijangka siap dalam tempoh setahun daripada tarikh pembinaannya tetapi terdapat beberapa faktor menyebabkan pembinaannya terlewat sedikit daripada tarikh asal.

"Antara faktornya adalah ruang kerja yang kecil untuk para pekerja menjalankan tugasan, kenaikan kos bahan mentah dan juga terdapat sedikit perubahan dari segi reka bentuk asalnya tetapi kita berjaya menyempurnakannya pada Oktober tahun ini," jelasnya.

Beliau berharap plaza ini akan digunakan sebaik-baiknya oleh warga kota dan beliau juga berharap orang ramai untuk tidak merosakkan plaza itu dengan vandalisme kerana ia akan memberi impak negatif kepada Kuala Lumpur.

"Kita tidak mahu perkara-perkara yang tidak baik berlaku di plaza ini memandangkan ia terletak di tengah-tengah pusat bandar dan kami berharap ia akan digunakan sebaik-baik mungkin untuk kebaikan bersama," katanya.

Noel Achariam


Mayor Datuk Abdul Hakim Borhan (second from left), City Hall director general Datuk Salleh Yusop (left) and Dr Leong Siew Mun (third from left) of the Urban Transport Department at the officlal opening of the Masjid Jamek pedestrian walkway.

KUALA LUMPUR: A covered plaza with a walkway has been built to cater to the growing number of commuters using the Kelana Jaya line.


The newly launched Masjid Jamek pedestrian walkway at Masjid Jamek LRT station.

The newly launched Masjid Jamek pedestrian walkway will cater to the 170,000 people commuting on the Kelana Jaya Line with 30,000 more using the Masjid Jamek station.

Mayor Ab Hakim Borhan said the plaza was one of City Hall's programmes to enhance public transport in the city.

"We hope that the new plaza will increase the accessibility and mobility of commuters at the Masjid Jamek station," he said.


Construction on the RM5 million plaza started in 2006 and is scheduled to be completed in October 2009.

City Hall's plans for Masjid Jamek are connecting both the Masjid Jamek stations and a full integration of the ticketing system between Ampang and Kelana Jaya line.

"Phase One is already completed, next will be Phase Two and Three. The connection between the Kelana Jaya and Ampang stations is expected to start early next year and will be completed in October 2009," said Hakim.

The plaza has five entrances including one for the disabled.

Shift to new Klang terminal to go ahead
Friday November 28, 2008



Days numbered: The current bus station in the heart of Klang town will be
empty once all the bus companies start operating from the new Klang Sentral
terminal in Jalan Meru from Dec 1.

DHARMENDER SINGH at the MPK full board meeting

The Klang Municipal Council (MPK) has decided to go ahead with the Dec 1 deadline for all bus companies to move to the new bus terminal at Klang Sentral in Jalan Meru despite objections from the public and several municipal councillors.

The impending shift from the current bus station in the heart of Klang town to the new terminal was hotly debated for almost an hour as councillors expressed concern that the relocation would cause hardship to public transport users.

Councillor Wong Siah Ping said the shift would cause a lot of confusion as most of the residents were still not aware of the move and the new bus routes.

She said even the council itself could not provide the exact routes for all 21 companies operating in the municipality since only three bus companies had submitted their new routes.

According to Wong, the planned bus stops at five locations in the town did not have proper shelter and would cause serious problems if it rained during the morning rush hour.

“The bus schedules have not been properly publicised and I am afraid that all this is going to cause havoc on the first day of implementation,” she said.

“Many people could end up turning up very late for work as a result of the confusion,” she said.

According to councillor L. Segaran, it takes about two hours for residents from areas like Taman Sentosa to get to the new terminal and 45 minutes from Klang town.

He said there were many people travelling from Klang to Kuala Lumpur to go to work and to college and most would be delayed due to the need to travel a long distance to the terminal.

Segaran said the council should put off the shift to the new terminal until all these issues were resolved as there was no need to hurry the shift at a huge cost to the people.

Council president Mislan Tugiu, however, said the matter had been thoroughly discussed at the sub-committee level which also included representatives from the police, Road Transport Department and the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Unit.

He said all the parties had agreed that the shift was the only way to solve the increasing traffic congestion in the town centre and people would get used to the changes after the initial teething problems.

He said the shift had already been put off three times before this and postponing it again would seem to indicate that the board did not trust the decision by councillors in sub-committee.

“We can overcome the problem with the public by sending council staff, including enforcement officers to hand out pamphlets on the shift as well as the location of the five pick-up points around Klang town,” he said.

New station building in Masjid Jamek (30/11/2008)

The sign has been the changed....


One of the entrances to the new building, in the future, passenger can walk to other line without having to get outside just like this, if you notice after you pass through the faregates in Ampang line, there is a one big board that blocks direct entry from Ampang line to KJ line and vice versa.......i guess the board will be removed, if the fare integration project is completed....

Is there a provision for a paid-area connection or would interchanging passengers still have to go through the fare-gates?

Currently, passengers still have to go through the faregates when changing lines...

In future, i don't know, but when the fare of both lines to be integrated in the future, we might see that...

I meant to ask if that was physically possible, based on what you saw?

Protest against relocation of bus terminal operation


SOME 100 people gathered at the Klang Utara bus terminal early this week to stage a peaceful protest against the local government decision to relocate the operation of the present town bus terminal to a new terminal at Meru.

The protesters comprising bus operators, taxi drivers, traders, members of NGOs and bus commuters held placards with messages against the decision during the 15-minute gathering.

Malaysia Indian Welfare Association president A. Prakash said the traders at and around the present terminal would suffer loss of business if its operation was shifted to the new terminal in Meru.

He said the new scheme would cause much hardship to the bus users, especially the poorer ones, as it would cost them more money and involved longer travelling time.

Yew Boon Lye, a spokesman for the crowd, asked the state government to be transparent and reveal the new bus station contract to the public.

“There are many questions that are not answered. We want to know how the project could benefit the people,” he said.

Yew said the state government should consult the people before it decided on any project.

He said there were 12 schools nearby and many students used public transport.

Yew said the relocation of the bus terminal’s operation to Meru would cause much inconvenience and hardship to the students and their parents.

Yew said the group would form a committee to meet Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim to present him with a memorandum on the issue.

The state government had announced earlier that the operation at the Klang Utara bus station would be relocated to the new terminal in Jalan Meru by the end of this month as part of the township’s development planning.

All bus and taxi operators will then be operating from the new Klang Sentral Terminal, about 6km from the current terminal.

The Klang Utara terminal and the express bus and taxi terminals in Lorong Kepayang will be closed permanently.

I see a lot of stairs - what about accessbility - ramps and stair lifts, tactile pavements...and what about protection from the rain/sun?

It certainly looks better than before, which is a plus
