20 Train Coaches To Resume Service
December 17, 2008 18:09 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 (Bernama) -- Twenty coaches which were left idle at the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) depot here, have been fully upgraded and would resume service before the year end.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said however, that investigations would be carried out to determine why the coaches were left idle so that appropriate action could be taken.

"I will not compromise on the issue. This is a total waste that should not have happened," he told reporters after officiating the Wheelchair Aid for Road Accident Victims Scheme here Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Ong said a study on train service management was being carried out to learn about the overall train service and the level of comfort at train stations.

"The findings of the study are expected to be revealed by the first quarter next year and possibly, another train service operator will be introduced to give variety to KTM," he said.

Apart from the study, the minister said the safety and maintenance level at all railway tracks in Peninsular Malaysia would also be audited, beginning next month.

The auditing, which would take up to six months, would be conducted by the Indian Railway, an independent auditor from India.

KTMB losing grip on monopoly, competitor in pipeline
By : David Yeow

KUALA LUMPUR: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB), long regarded as an institution in the transport industry, may soon have a competitor.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat announced yesterday that his ministry was considering introducing a second railway operator.

Ong said KTMB, which has been operating the nation's railway service since 1948, had been providing poor service.

He was speaking after launching the Road Safety Marshall Club's wheelchair loan scheme for road accident victims.

"We are studying the feasibility of having a second railway service operator. This is not a foregone conclusion, but we are concerned about the management of the nation's railway infrastructure and assets by KTMB."

He added that the study's findings would be made known by the first quarter of next year. "If not a second operator, then perhaps a structural overhaul and rebranding of KTMB would be in order."

Referring to the Komuter service, he said the number of its trains would be increased from 29 to 36 by March, thus, reducing waiting time to 15 minutes for every train.

In May, he had visited the KTM Sentul depot, where he discovered that only five of the 20 new locomotives from China were in working condition.

Now, he said, there were 18 in working condition, and all 20 should be ready for inter-state service this month.

Ong said a task force would find out who were responsible for buying the 20 locomotives.





He also announced that Indian Railways would conduct an independent audit of the railway system from next month to June.

"Everything from the condition of our tracks to how we have been managing our assets and infrastructure will be scrutinised," said Ong, who wants to raise the standard of rail services to that of Europe and Japan.

Illegals resorting to Komuter
By Suganthi Suparmaniamnews@nst.com.my


KUALA LUMPUR: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd's (KTMB) Komuter train service is fast becoming a popular choice of transport for illegal immigrants.

More than 200 of the foreigners were arrested in the trains yesterday.

In a joint operation involving the Immigration and National Registration Departments and KTMB, the foreigners were detained in trains plying the Klang to Kuala Lumpur and Rawang to Kuala Lumpur routes.

Those detained did not have their original passports with them.

KTMB senior manager operation (central region) Mohd Hider Yusoff said this was the second time the operation, code-named Ops Tegas, had been carried out.

He said during the first operation in March last year, 40 illegals were detained.

"This year, we have more personnel deployed to check commuters' identity cards and passports," Hider said yesterday.

He said the majority of those detained were Indonesians (136), followed by Bangladeshis (42) and Myanmar nationals (16).

Nigerians, Vietnamese and Indian nationals were also detained during the four-and-a-half hour operation, added Hider.

what a nonsense article.,,,biased against immigrants and public transport....

Besides that it gives an inaccurate idea...because RapidKL buses are far more popular than KTM Komuter.

Rail service between mall and Singapore
Ahmad Fairuz Othman
KERETAPI Tanah Melayu Berhad will launch a rail shuttle service from Danga City Mall (DCM), Johor Baru, to Singapore beginning Jan 5.


FAST, EASY AND CONVENIENT: The train schedule for travel between Singapore and Kempas Baru, via Danga City Mall.

The mall in Jalan Tun Razak is the first shopping complex in the south to have its own train platform.

There will be eight services to and from Tanjung Pagar train station in Singapore each day.

The promotional fare is S$3 from Singapore and RM3 from Johor Baru.


On average, there will be four coaches per train with a capacity for up to 200.

Johor Tourism Action Council general manager A. Jabar Md Tahir said a one-way trip would take about 11/2 hours.

"The journey includes Customs and Immigration clearance. It's convenient, fast and easy," he said.

The earliest train from Singapore is Ekspres Lambaian Timur, which departs from Tanjung Pagar at 5.35am and is estimated to arrive at Danga City Mall at 6.20am. The second train, Ekspres Rakyat will depart at 7.40am and arrive at 8.34am.

In the afternoon, Ekspres Sinaran Petang will depart at 2pm and arrive at 2.52pm. The final train, Ekspres Kembara, departs at 7.10pm and arrives at 8.06pm.

Meanwhile, the first train from the DCM departs at 9.37am and is estimated to arrive at Tanjung Pagar at 11am. The Ekpres Sinaran Pagi at 2.19pm is next and is expected to arrive in Singapore at 4.10pm.

The Ekspres Lambaian Timur departs at 6.50pm and arrives at 9pm, while the last train, Ekspres Rakyat departs at 8.08pm and arrives at 9.35pm.

The DCM management is also providing a free bus service for city tours from the mall.

Jabar said the train services would complement other transport services between Johor Baru and Singapore.

Despite a slowdown in the economy, Singaporeans continue to be the top money spenders in Malaysia.

Statistics from the 2008 Malaysia Mega Sale carnival showed that Singaporeans spent RM62.8 million in credit card transactions, followed by Indonesians (RM41.6 million)

An estimated 10.5 million Singaporeans visited Malaysia last year.
