Transport Ministry to consider e-hailing bus proposal
Bernama October 24, 2019 00:45 am +08



Quote:
SEREMBAN (Oct 23): The Transport Ministry is looking at new concepts in public transport including e-hailing buses.

Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said the Ministry is seriously looking into the idea proposed recently by some parties.

"At the moment we are looking to review our regulations to allow buses to pick up their passengers and send them to their destination instead of to the bus stop. This is an idea and proposal we are looking very closely into," he said here tonight.

Loke said this at the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) annual dinner here.

Also present were FMM president Tan Sri Soh Thian Lai and Negeri Sembilan FMM chairman Steven Aroki.

Loke said the Ministry was aware that some areas such as housing estate and industrial areas were not fully covered by public transport system.

On another development, he said the new alignment for the East Cost Rail Link (ECRL) had been finalised.

"We are going to put it up for public display in early November," he said.

The ECRL project starts from Kota Bahru via Mentakab, Kuala Klawang, Nilai, Bangi/Kajang, Putrajaya and ends in Port Klang.

e hailimg bus ada trial di Sydney tetapi berdasarkan laporan awal kurang memberangsangkan aka terlalu mahal utk dioperasikan . Trial E hailing bus di Sydney dibuat di Utara Sydney dengan penduduk kepadatan rendah dengan permintaan khidmat bas yang rendah, jadi e hailing bas dicubakan di mana bas akan memasuki lawasan taman perumahan jaih dr jalan utama untuk amik penumpamg yg minta bas melalui app. Yg guna cuma orang tua yg pi pekan sekali sekala amik ubat.

Tak tahu ble guna ke di KL yg padat. Alang alang tambah bilangan bas dan tambah khidmat feeder bas LRT/MRT dan laluan utama dan buat lorong bas untuk tingkatkan reliability khidmat bas pada masa puncak.

Ni nak sembang cuba bas e hailing yg masih belum terbuktu berkesan...harap buat kajian dahulu.

First thing first, the RapidKL bus service is still inadequate. RapidKL I believe only have at most 1500 bus.Compare to Singapore 3000 buses and 7000 buses in Hong Kong. Rapid Bus expansion is falling behind the rail development in Klang Valley.

Many RapidKL bus routes have poor frequency and many KLites and people in Selangor are out of reach of bus routes and feeder bus service to the LRT/MRT station. Some MRT feeder bus routes are ridiculosly long, example the one from Phileo Damansara MRT statoon through to UM takes up tp 40 minutes during peak hour, route is too long plus bad traffic. Many RapidKL bus service cant cater to comumuters requirements of reliability,hence people rather drive. The buses at Universiti station,driver sampai dia...pi rehat smpai setengah jam sementara bas jalan..buang masa.Patutnya bas sampai tukar driver jalan terus. Kat luar negara takde buat cam kat Malaysia...maybe Rapidnalso have issue of getting enough bus captains?

Another example I grew in Wangsa Maju, the nearest bus stop is 1.5km away, and 3km from a LRT station. Pretty poor considering Wamgsa Maju is a very dense area with several LRT stations like Wamgsa Maju, Sri Rampai and Setiawangsa stations. Issue is last mile connectivity.

I support adding mini bus service and additional busnroutes to provide more coverage especially for LRT/MRT feeder bus.

E hailing bus ni mcm hype je.

HK ngn SG dia limit private kereta sbb tu dia bole ada more busses biar jdi public transport yg consistent. KL is more car city than them tpi klo nok more bus pon bole tpi kena extensive lagi punya jlnraya since Greater KL tu luas pda kedua bandar/negara tu.

Finally got a pix of the cute little Hino Poncho mini bus - spotted this one heading into the LDP tunnel near Damansara Utama...

Didn’t know the route actually stretched far beyond the Bahagia LRT station!

In the Malaysia Land Transport FB...its reported that two SAIC electric buses bought by Malacca has been abandoned as the operating cost is too high.

Doesny bode well for the planned 500 electric bus acquisition.

Problem with electric vehicles you need to establish infrastructure for the charging. Considering the govt is in rm1 trillion debt near bankruptcy and the money spent on MRT/LRT ellegedly going somewhere else resulting cost cutting measures on current rail infra..buying 500 electric busses that cost substantially more than diesel buses is oxymoron.

No free rides for foreigners on Smart Selangor Bus from next year
SHAH ALAM: Foreigners will no longer get free rides on the Smart Selangor Bus service from next year.

However, Selangor state executive councillor in charge of local government, public transportation and new village development Ng Sze Han said, the government has yet to decide on how to impose the RM1 charge on non-Malaysians.

“The likely method is for locals to present their identity cards when boarding the bus,” he said in response to a question from Mohd Shaid Rosli (BN-Jeram) at the Selangor state assembly sitting today.

Ng refuted claims that foreigners were the bigger users of the free bus service. He said studies by the Hulu Selangor and Shah Alam local authorities showed that they accounted for only 2% and 9% of commuters.

He said the state government spent RM106 million to deploy 18 buses for 43 routes between July 2015 and September this year.

“The state introduced the free bus service because there was a lack of public transport in certain locations,” he added.

He said the free service is available in only 11 districts because there is a lack of funds to roll it out statewide.

Lately, the Sarawak state govt has been up to making the state greener, with the most recent effort being the official launch of Southeast Asia’s 1st integrated hydrogen production plant and a refueling station for the state’s 1st hydrogen-powered vehicles owned and run by Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC). Built by state-owned power provider Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) and Linde Malaysia, the plant can fully refuel up to 5 hydrogen fuel cell buses and 10 fuel cell cars per day.

I am sceptical if hydrogen vehicles because its still difficult to produce pure hydrogen and storing it.
State govt Sarawak kenela support kaw kaw..jgn jd mcm melaka..dah tau EV bus mahal terus abandon pastu buat bangang.

I suppose Sarawak is banking on using Bakun dam excess electricity to produce hydrogen gas at large scale to tap renewable energy

Actually converting combustion engine vehicle to use hydrogen is possible...just subs petrol with hydrogen. Infrastructure petrol ble support penggunaan hydrogen vehicle...bukan cam EV yg kene start from scratch.

Tapi nak transport sufficient hydrogen on the vehicle SAFELY remains a big issue tambah isu nak buat hydrogen cukup tulen.

Tour bus e-hailing service for VMY 2020 in the pipeline
Bernama November 12, 2019 21:05 pm +08
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 12): The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) hopes to roll out the e-hailing service for tour buses in time for the start of Visit Malaysia 2020.

MATTA president Datuk Tan Kok Liang said the association had, in fact, inked a memorandum of understanding with four e-hailing operators on July 12 this year.

“Without increasing running costs, a tour bus could generate additional revenue by picking up a group of passengers making a booking using an e-hailing app,” he said in a statement today.

He said the pickup points can be anywhere such as the airport, hotel, office and at various attractions. — Bernama

Passed by a Hino Poncho bus along the LDP this morning (it was stopping to pick passengers up at the bus stand opposite the BP Specialist Center Megah) and darn, it was packed to the max, with some people even standing up... Seems like this mini bus is getting good response from commuters, which means the trial run from Bahagia LRT to Damansara Uptown is a success as of now!

Too bad I didn't take a photo of the full-house bus, as I was the one driving the car...

That's the thing I don't understand about China buses we imported: why did it all ended up in scrapyard? Does the import contract doesn't include spare parts and maintenance? Or it's just pure negligence and lack of maintenance on our side. If only all those condemned buses can be revived and redistribute to other public bus operators in Malaysia. That itself will be a massive lifesaver.

Well the Chinese have no problems in China because they source their parts locally. Problem in Malaysia they dont provide after service hence no spare parts resulting in many China made buses engine catching fire. This is an issue with many Chinese sourced machineries as their makers have poor international logistic and supply chain....like the KTMB Dalian loco which remain unreliable until today due to poor support from Dalian/CNR which have small presence in SEA. Hopefully the Batu Gajah CSR plant will avoid same fate on our CSR sources EMUs but CSR is actually has actually established itself internationally vQUITE well unlike CNR.

Scania, Volvo have good after sales support plus they have long history in SEA...a reason prasarana source their buses.
