IMHO our train announcement should be clear and use the proper voice. recently the new KJ line train announcement not so good compare to the previous one. the best train announcement so far is in the KLIA transit and KLIA express. The voice is clear and the pronouncation was good. Why lrt and monorail cant implement the good one...

The signages at the stations also need to change because the one that using now looks so bad.

Hi, I'm a graphic design student and I'm going to work on a project to redesign the wayfinding system of Malaysia's rail transit. I saw all the post, it's interesting but still no action taken by the rapidkl.

So, just throw me a bunch of problems and difficulties that you faced when using our public transport.
This is a leisurely forum, where commuters propose intellectual ways to solve problems, jokers poke fun and say silly things, and a handful of government employees give tonnes of excuses why effecient solutions adopted elsewhere decades ago cannot be replicated locally in the Bolehland.

For example, things such as double cross-platform interchanges, HSR station locations, wayfinding signages, and even bus frequencies will hardly be improved due to lack of political will, couple with an liberal dose of excuses. If you understand that projects are meant to fill up pihak tertentu's pockets, instead of benefitting the rakyat, I don't think you will be surprised at all.

Just LTA Identity Typeface will do

Will be pleasing to the eyes if all expressway/ federal routes/ state routes/ municipal roads/ rail/ metro/ bus adopt LTA Identity Typeface in all corporate identity/ wayfinding signages/ publications, besides standarising the icons and colour schemes.

Sorry for being unabashedly unapologetic about sharing my thoughts :p
Serif typefaces looks sophisticated

Eh? You mean this LTA Identity Typeface? Surely that is copyrighted by LTA SG and/or Hubert Jocham?
Yes, too bad if it is copyrighted. Try write to them for permission to reproduce.

Would be great if we craft something equally sophisticated. Many like Helvetica for its simplicity but that's a tad too bland and dry I guess, so is Myriad Pro.

Perhaps it's my preference for typefaces with serif. But they are cool, don't you guys think so?
