Cant seem to find a thread for buses in KL. Here's a new company called "Bus Polluter". Really wonder why up till today these buses are still wondering around. Check out the black smoke coming out:

Lousy law enforcement. Bribe officers and dirty bus companies don't get fined. This is Malaysia. We need to change.

Do the panels work??? :lol:
The system do not come on line yet.

It is still under installation process.

So far, it is being installed in Kelana Jaya, Bangsar and 1 Utama bus hubs. Larger panels will be installed in RapidKL bus hubs (potentially that means Maluri LRT might be the next one too).

According to this, it should be operational by end of this year.

RapidKL buys 470 new buses
By REENA RAJ Thursday November 24, 2011

PETALING JAYA: At least 850 new buses will be required until 2012 by RapidKL to achieve the target of 70% coverage for bus ridership in Klang Valley.

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) said that RapidKL had already purchased 470 buses to achieve the target.

Pemandu said its newly-launched Bus Expressway Transit routes BET7 and BET8, servicing commuters in the Sri Nilam and Semenyih districts to travel to and from the city, was on track.

Since the launch of the two routes in July, BET7 has benefited an average of 254 commuters and BET8 an average of 214 daily.

BET7 and BET8 are in addition to the existing six routes.

The BET service features RapidKL buses utilising existing highways to travel between the selected destinations and the city centre to avoid traffic congestion on more fre-quently-used routes, resulting in faster journeys.

BET7 provides transit between Sri Nilam and Lebuh Ampang using the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), which saves commuters up to 20 minutes of travel time.

The BET8 route offers commuters a shorter travel time between Sri Semenyih and Central Market using both the Grand SAGA and SILK highways.

This route saves commuters 30 to 75 minutes of travel time as previously there were no direct routes between Semenyih and Kuala Lumpur.

The fares for the BET7 and BET8 routes are RM2.50 and RM3.00 respectively.

The introduction of BET under the GTP's Urban Public Transport NKRA in 2010 has significantly reduced travel time for commuters who live in suburban areas that are further away from the city.

Engine so thundering noisy, honking no one's business, speeding as if their own road, broken buses and heavy smoke, driven by who care indon drivers, really run by a mafia gang, METROBUS。 Correction HELLBUS.
Why are they still very much existent? Very good question for Minister to answer.

Last year when I was near IIUM Gombak in front of a traffic light one Metrobus driver ( while smoking ) shouted at me * BodXX* without any reason , lepas tu jerkah2 aku macam ni---> :madwife::madwife:

Patut ban habis Metrobus ni. Sebat je pemandu2 yg melanggar peraturan di khalayak ramai , walaupun kesalahan kecil. Paparkan nama pemandu2 tak berdisiplin ( dengan gambar muka ) dalam surat khabar

^^Don't worry, SPAD already addressed current bus system in their KL/KV LPT masterplan...read here

From I have read, this a key area that need for improvement



Toward this they will setup new regulation regime to re-structuring bus system, re-route and enforce new regulation. In next five years, before MRT1 completed, bus system in KL/KV will be contract base. Operator will fight for the route, not they are creating the route like now..




Better hope for bus system :cheers:
