KUALA LUMPUR: The government plans to invest RM450 million to acquire up to 500 electric buses of various sizes to boost public transport in selected cities nationwide.

Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said the move was to demonstrate the government’s commitment in improving public transport and nurture cleaner and greener cities.

“The government is committed to enhance the mobility of Malaysians by reducing transport costs and improving infrastructure by prioritising public transport.

“In January, the government introduced My50 and My100 monthly travel passes providing unlimited travel on all rail and bus services under RapidKL.

“The scheme has since benefitted more than 120,000 public transport users.

“Subsequently, the government launched Pas Mutiara for RM50 in Pulau Pinang, providing unlimited travel in a month on Rapid buses and Rapid Ferry.

“The government will further support last-mile connectivity in rural and urban areas by subsidising bus operators with an allocation of RM146 million in 2020,” he said in his 2020 Budget speech.

Lim said the government would also upgrade the rail tracks between Halogilat Station and Tenom Station in Sabah at a cost of RM50 million to enhance travelling convenience for locals while providing a memorable experience for tourists.

He said the government also planned to upgrade the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport in Ipoh which would include a runway extension.

“Towards this, the government would also invite proposals on a public private partnership basis to realise this investment.”

I still cannot brain where the 500 electric buses come from....nak bagi makan sesiapa ka? ada study ka life cycle dan cost nak maintain 500 EV bus..jangan semua buang sampah lepas 10 tahun.

rm450 million can easily add almost 1000 new buses into Klang Valley. I believe in boosting the quantity of buses a priority.

Electric vehicles have been shown to have very high maintenance cost with battery packs failing prematurely.

Not sure how you come at this conclusion on the high cost for electric buses, but various reports would argue otherwise. Sure they cost more upfront, but their long-term TCO is lower than that of diesel buses.

Diesel buses are currently cheaper, but they emit harmful particles, and they use finite resources. Electric buses can be powered by renewable energy sources, and is cleaner for everyone.

This is not to say electric buses at their current form are panacea to our transit woes. Some of the reports cite uncertainties about maintenance and parts reliability upon warranty expiry, and range anxiety is still a thing for electric buses, but considering diesel propulsion is essentially a dead-end and are getting phased out along with petrol-based propulsion, it would be prudent for us to introduce electric buses by stages so we can build up expertise on maintaining one.

To overcome problems with batteries, maybe these electric buses should use 'overhead power lines' like what they do in some Eastern European countries meh ???

The argument EV vehicles clean is false in many ways.try finding out how much dangerous chemicals is used and the amount of water wasted to make the battery.

EV vehicles was like the trend some years ago..now byk user dah guna 2-3 tahun beli Tesla dan Nissan Leaf menyesal sbb tgk byk problem. Yg Norwegian berjemaah beli Tesla baru tau..battery life hancur dalam iklim sejuk di Utara Eropah.The tech is still not mature.

Like cars, urban bus operate in run-stop mode, tak efficient guna EV. Base on some studies EV is more efficient for long haul truck transport where the vehicle run at constant speed for most of the time and run at fixed distances. Utk bus dalam bandar not so.

China use many EV bus because the dictator Communist govt wants to support its EV industry, depa mmg nak conquer EV tech...tapi depa paksa teksi beli EV yg harga mahal smpai teksi driver hutang banyak dan oush EV buses.tapi banyak problem sama cm Tesla dan Nissan Leaf...battery life ciput pastu battery leak , terbakar, meletup, but u will bot find in China media sebab censorship.

Sebab tu di other developed countries, bas letrik pun masih slow...demo...kalau guna pun bas hybrid yg save minyak yg bagi saya lagi sesuai di KL.

Malaysia power mix is dominated by fossil fuel..so....

Im still not convinced..why suddenly nak beli 500 EV buses..nak kasi someone makan...i can believe. Nak save environment..dont make joke..tgk isu Lynas....Sg Kim Kim....hahaha

Saw of RapidKL facebook that they have launched a trial 'LRT feeder bus' on a route..The bus has a special livery or wrap to distinguish it from normal RapidKL buses.

Similar to the MRT feeder buses.

Sarawakian bus companies sign on to receive subsidies from federal government for two years via Interim Stage Bus Support Fund (ISBSF).

Finally after some delay but unfortunately my childhood bus company, Sarawak Transport Company is still dead. Sigh.

That is awesome news! Finally Sarawak is starting to get some decent public transport investment. Kuching really needs that.

It's not much of an investment but more of lifeline to keep the essential services running. Funding is based on existing routes and number of buses they are running. That's essentially is the "Interim" part of the ISBSF.

Meaningful investment (at least from Federal Government) is the Stage Bus Service Transformation (SBST) (trading as myBas) scheme but the SBST Kuching seems to be not progressing (or worse, dead in water) and with the old bus companies slowly dying one by one, I am not sure it's even possible to get SBST up and running at all.

Meanwhile, regarding the Hydrogen buses that its service was postponed due to contaminants in hydrogen fuel supplies: contaminant liquid issues just solved and test runs to continue before service can commence.

HINO PONCHO, MINIBUS LANTAI RENDAH DIPERKENALKAN UNTUK SESI PERCUBAAN
SALINA JALIL I 21-10-2019

ino Motors Sales (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Hino Malaysia) memperkenalkan minibus lantai rendah dengan panjang tujuh (7) meter untuk sesi percubaan di bawah pengendalian projek operasi oleh Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd (Rapid Bus).

Percubaan perjalanan ini akan menggunakan laluan T784 LRT Taman Bahagia dan T201 LRT Gombak selama tiga (3) bulan bermula dari 20 Oktober 2019 hingga 20 Januari 2020.

Pada hari kedua percubaan (hari ini), Menteri Pengangkutan, YB Anthony Loke Siew Fook, telah menggunakan bas mini tersebut selama kira-kira 15 minit, bermula dari LRT Taman Bahagia ke stesen hentian bas di Damansara Uptown.

Hino Poncho adalah minibus yang didatangkan dengan lantai rendah 7 meter panjang dan yang pertama di dunia. Di Jepun, terdapat lebih daripada 2,000 unit Hino Poncho di kawasan bandar yang sibuk dan jalan raya yang sempit.
Hino Poncho mempunyai akses yang sangat baik kerana ia di datangkan dengan lantai ultra-rendah dengan fungsi lutut yang boleh diturunkan lagi. Ciri ini membantu warga emas dan tidak mematuhi penumpang kerusi roda.

Selain itu ia juga dilengkapi dengan fleksibiliti untuk keperluan penumpang khas dan mampu menampung sehingga 31 termasuk penumpang berdiri.

Ia direka dengan sistem pelarasan ketinggian kenderaan dan sistem ini yang melaksanakan ketinggian kenderaan untuk menurunkan atau meningkatkan kawalan. Ketinggian boleh diturunkan adalah sebanyak 50mm dan dinaikkan sehingga 30mm.

Di bahagian enjin pula, ia dilengkapi dengan lima (5) liter enjin Euro-V dan sistem transmisi 5 kelajuan automatik.

Enjin diesel berteknologi tinggi Euro-V adalah lebih baik untuk prestasi pecutan, penjimatan bahan api dan mesra alam. Hino Poncho dengan enjin Euro-V ini dilengkapi dengan Diesel Sistem Pengurangan Partikulat (DPR); iaitu sistem pengawalan yang mengurangkan pelepasan bahan zarah.

Ciri ini berbeza dengan kenderaan Euro-V semasa di mana Hino Poncho tidak memerlukan sebarang adaptif tambahan seperti urea AdBlue dan ini menjimatkan kos operasi dan masa penyelenggaraan.

Mini’ bus service to start next year, says minister
FMT Reporters -October 21, 2019 11:20 PM

Regular ‘mini’ bus services will start in Kuala Lumpur next year.
KUALA LUMPUR: Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) and Rapid KL will have a strategic alliance with bus companies to expand and improve a “mini” bus service using shorter buses which went on trial last month.

Transport Minister Loke Siew Fook said the service had been well received by the public, with an average of 1,200 passengers, rising to 1,800 passengers per day on the T304 (Ampang Point to Bukit Indah) route.

“The advantage of a smaller bus is that it is easier to get into the residential areas and this makes it easier for the bus driver to make the duration of the trip shorter and to operate at a frequency of 15 minutes during peak hours.

“Rapid KL has done research and most of the passengers are satisfied with the mini bus service and are supportive, so this has given us an indication that the mini bus is popular because it is faster and saves time,” he told reporters after trying out the mini bus service here today.

Loke said he hoped the mini bus service would be introduced by next year, especially in the residential areas and hoped more private bus operators would invest to improve the bus service.

On Aug 28, Rapid KL ran a trial mini bus service from Bukit Indah hub to Ampang Point, via Jalan Rasmi from Sept 1 to Nov 29.

Mini-bus services using van-sized vehicles were popular in the capital in the 1990s. They were stopped 21 years ago.

https://www.nst.com.my/cbt/2019/06/4...oncho-bus-mcve

KUALA LUMPUR: Hino Motor Sales Malaysia Sdn Bhd (HMSM) took part in the Malaysia Commercial Vehicle Expo (MCVE) for the fourth time this year, with the theme ‘The Future of Transportation in Malaysia’.



In line with the theme, HMSM displayed its 300 Series light-duty trucks and Prime Mover 700 Series trucks, as well as the HINO Poncho – a low-floor minibus which was making its Southeast Asia debut.

The HINO Poncho was designed as an innovative solution for first and last mile travel for passengers of Malaysia’s rail transport systems.

Compared to regular buses which are 10 to 12 metres long, the HINO Poncho, with a length of seven metres, is easier to manoeuvre through busy city streets.

Mechanically, it is powered by a Euro5-rated 5.0-litre JO5D engine with 208PS at 2,800rpm and 490Nm of torque at 1,600rpm.


After so many years, the minibus is here again! The last time I remember seeing it is when I'm in uni.

Saw this cute small bus yesterday - I was driving behind and the vehicle was heading towards the Bahagia LRT station...

And I thought the little bus operated by Starling Mall as their LRT shuttle was small - this is even narrower!
