KL bandaraya kaya, populasi tinggi dan padat jadi sesuai la ada rail based transit. Pastu nak buat BRT ada isu juga sebab banyak jalan utama KL selain highway bertingkat adala 2 - 4 lane, mau mati tutup satu lane mcm kat Jalan Ampang. Jadi LRT/MRT dilihat lebih menawan sbb tak kacau org lain naik kereta. Tapi kalau nak elevated BRT ble je utk mcm Jalan Ampang bagi saya.Although I'm not against transit rail or something i do believe BRT would solve problem easier, cheaper, faster and equally efficient as LRT/MRT system. Because one of the reason why BRT has been canceled is because redundancy especially in LRT3 section even BRT shown to be more problem solving than LRT/MRT. But its government initiative they want to focus on rail connectivity rather then BRT.
There's 12 BRT corridor planned, 1 has been sorted out even by not realizing this, another 11 corridor for BRT already changed status as 'future 11 MRT/LRT lines'. There's so many reason why they opt this way even population would choose BRT as its more 'economical' but for 'economist' its BRT not wealth, business or GDP generating, they rather choose debt for economic growth. Sad but truth.
THIS, SO MUCH. 😠as much as I like to blame planners & politikus. it probably good to realize that we ourselves are the one giving mix signal to them. even in this forums we have people who want wide pedestrian walkway & at grade PT, others wanted the widest possible roads & elevated PT "to get out of their way". we used to relied on "authoritarianism" for decision making but since we had dismantle it we currently have no mechanism to decide which opposing views should get implemented.
