A KL road map showing the Mini Bus routes - circa late 1970s (I suppose). Does anybody know when did KL start to have mini buses on its roads?

My grandmother took me on this train to Ampang for the nine emperor god festival. She bought me a red tortise bread bun (taste terrible) and got a yellow ribbon to tie on my wrist.

I am not sure but remnants of the old track can still be seen at the junction of Jalan Pudu & Jalan Pasar (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) ..........

Yes......the Ampang Line LRT uses the old alignment of the railway. I still remember the railroad crossings at Jalan Cheras (next to Maluri Station) and Jalan Pasar (next to Pudu Station and behind Pudu Bomba). The railroad was still active till the late 80s cause I remember stopping for trains to cross at Maluri when the cement plant (although halted operations but structure still standing till today) still in operation.

I think those mainly railcar services were perhaps more like a predecessor to the KTM Komuter, running every hour or two

It is really interesting to see how the KL transport network evolved - a lot of history to it.

I guess the answer to the question posed on the map depends on

a) the mode of transport Ah Chong takes to reach his destination
b) the route he takes to go there
c) at what time he starts his journey

Needs someone from this forum who are good at map reading to figure out the answer ..........
