Klang Valley folk now opting for public transportation to beat jams

Better alternative: A parking lot near KL Sentral almost full of vehicles as more Klang Valley residents choose to take public transportation to go to work.

Better alternative: A parking lot near KL Sentral almost full of vehicles as more Klang Valley residents choose to take public transportation to go to work.

MORE Klang Valley drivers left their cars at home and used public transport to go to work to avoid rush hour traffic gridlocks last year.

According to the Government Transformation Programme report, the morning peak ridership, between 6am and 10am, reached 437,525 by the end of last year. This exceeded the 400,000 target set under the National Key Result Area.

Acting transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the numbers speak for themselves as the Government remained focused on transforming the urban public transport system into an attractive alternative.

He said the percentage of commuters opting to use public transport in 2013 stood at 21% but further work had to be done to reach the 25% or 750,000 morning peak ridership goal by 2015.

“The fact of the matter is that Kuala Lumpur and the Greater Klang Valley is in need of an efficient public transport system to reduce the number of cars commuting daily in and out of the city centre.

“Roads are at near capacity and may reach crisis levels if nothing is done to accommodate the growing population, which is poised to ex­­pand by four million by 2020,” he said.

The growing appeal of public transport is attributed to improvements including better-integrated terminals, increased rail capacity and frequency of public transport services.

Among measures in the pipeline is the pilot project to create the country’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) route linking Kuala Lumpur to Klang. The BRT will be able to ferry up to 400,000 passengers daily on completion in 2016.

Upgrades to KTM’s commuter core systems including signalling and the restoration of damaged rail tracks have improved frequency between arrivals from 30 to 45 minutes per train to 15 minutes.

“The on-time performance has been raised to 94.6% and passenger load factor increased to 72%”.

More emphasis was also placed on improving facilities to make using the public transport system more convenient and comfortable last year.

The report said that inconvenience was a major complaint prior to the NKRA when different public transport systems — stage and city buses, LRT and monorail — were not properly integrated.

Improvements last year include the construction of more Park ‘n’ Ride (parking complexes for rail commuters) at major stations like Sungai Besi, Seremban, Bandar Tasik Selatan and Gombak.

More Park ‘n’ Rides will be built at the Kelana Jaya, Salak Tinggi, Klang, Rawang and Nilai stations under GTP 2.0.

Bus Rapid Transit(BLT)

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)                             

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a specialized bus priority category. It is designed to accommodate the high level of demand for public transport by incorporating aspects of mass transit. This essentially means a rail-like service but deployed in a shorter timeframe, using far less resources and done at the fraction of the cost of establishing new rail services.

Main Features: 
Exclusive lanes on the Busway.
•Pre-boarding payment.
•Single system operator for revenues and payments – multiple bus operators with common ticketing.
•Closed/Open system on the Busway and at terminals and stations.
•High capacity buses.

Background
One of the 11 initiatives under the NKRA-UPT, the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) networks in Greater KL (GKL) initiative is being implemented by the Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD). 
•SPAD has recognized 12 BRT corridors in Greater KL/Klang Valley Public Transport Master Plan-Draft (2010) under Bus Transformation Plan section.
•KL–Klang Corridor has been identified in KL BRT Report (2011) as one of the potential BRT Corridors and this BRT project is planned to be operational by 2016.

Examples of BRT Worldwide

Bogota, Colombia                                                                     •  Guangzhou, China 

     

Rouen, France                                                                            •   Jakarta, Indonesia

    

Benefits of BRT: 
•For operators BRT:
-      Improves service performance.
-      Improves service reliability.
-      Improves in operation performance.
-      Improve in service ridership.
•For the public:
-    Shorter travel time.
-    Better reliability and comfort.
-     Better coverage and door-to-door service.
-    Better bus and station amenities.
-    Better lifestyle.
-    Improved quality of life.
•For the government:
-    A less expensive transit alternative.
-    Quicker solution.
-    Environmentally friendly.
-    Operating flexibility.
-    Increase transit ridership in select corridors.
Benefits of KL-Klang BRT:
•For operators:
-    Operation speed average @45 kmph. Faster than mixed traffic.
-    Frequency of 30 seconds, high capacity @ 14000 pphpd.
•For the public:
-    Less delay in traveling with 50% improvement.
-    More coverage (90%) & integration with other modes of transport.
-    Metro-class stations, accessibility and connectivity.
-    Better bus comfort and safety.
-    Improved mobility & lifestyle for higher quality of life.
•For the government:
-    Cheaper than rail (BRT @ RM25mil/km).
-    Can be implemented by 2016, quick transit solution.
-    Promotes green environment, urban wellness.
-     Phased construction & staging, minimum service disruption.
BRT Hybrid Operation System
•Along Kl-Klang BRT corridors, 29 BRT stations are being planned.
•KL-Klang BRT corridor will adopt BRT hybrid operational system, applying both direct service and trunk-and-feeder system.

BRT Impact Assessment
•Do nothing is not an option. Less roads and more transit is the way forward.
•To curtail the increase in congestion along Federal Highway due to increased population in future years, by providing faster, safer, more comfortable, affordable and attractive public transport option.
•While BRT helps to manage traffic conditions (by implementing “push & pull” factors), it also helps the economy by reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emission and also minimizing travel time hence maximizing productivity.

年尾建幹線 經靈市和莎 隆→巴生乘快捷巴士

http://www.chinapress.com.my/node/539061

報導:郭貞黎

(吉隆坡29日訊)全長32公里,快捷巴士系統(BRT)吉隆坡中環至巴生市區幹線于年尾動工,以加強莎阿南、巴生一帶公共交通系統,紓解聯邦大道的交通阻塞問題。

除了吉隆坡中環至巴生市區的快捷巴士系統,從梳邦區的斯迪亞再也電動火車站銜接往位于格華芝班路的USJ第6區的快捷巴士系統─雙威幹線(Bus Rapid Transit-Sunway Line),正如火如荼施工中。

快捷巴士系統(BRT)雙威幹線,是首個快捷巴士系統,由國家基建公司與雙威集團聯合斥資5億4900萬令吉打造,穿梭雙威市中心與USJ地區,預計6月投入使用,惠及當地近50萬居民。

負責快捷巴士系統技術委員會的雪州高級行政議員拿督鄧章欽接受《中國報》記者專訪時說,快捷巴士系統的吉隆坡往巴生市區幹線年尾動工,估計需耗時兩年。

他說,該幹線從吉隆坡中環開始,沿著聯邦大道,經過八打靈再也、莎阿南等區,最后進入巴生市區。

他指出,當局已鑒定路線圖和車站地點,在巴生市區一帶,是擁有足夠的空間開設快捷巴士幹線。

他指出,該系統位于雪州路線中,將建11個車站,分別是八打靈再也(2個)、梳邦再也(1個)、莎阿南(3個)及巴生(5個)。

他說,當快捷巴士進入巴生市區時,快捷巴士會在巴生市區中繞一圈。

至于在莎阿南範圍時,除了其中兩個車站,在通往巴生方向的路線,會有一條分線通往莎阿南室內體育館,其余一個車站將位于該體育館附近。

他說,吉隆坡中環至巴生市區幹線將扮演銜接其他公共交通的角色,包括電動火車站、輕快鐵等,屆時將可疏緩聯邦大道交通擁擠情況。

鄧章欽:僅縮小車道寬度
不佔用聯邦大道

鄧章欽說,吉隆坡中環巴生幹線將使用聯邦大道的中間部分的空間,但不會佔用聯邦大道車道。

他說,目前,聯邦大道車道相當寬,來回方向各3條車道。

他指出,一旦快捷巴士系統佔用中間的空間,聯邦大道仍保持現有來回各3條車道,只是車道寬度將縮小。

“吉隆坡中環巴生幹線的快捷巴士,是在路面上行駛,是屬于巴生專行道,一般車輛是不能駛入。”

鄧章欽說,吉隆坡中環巴生的快捷巴士計劃,是由中央政府出資,雪州政府和地方政府將負責征用土地和路線協調。

他說,雪州政府歡迎快捷巴士計劃,雪州政府和地方政府將全面進行調工作。

未來擬定12個幹線

陸路公共交通委員會(SPAD)將快捷巴士系統列入綜合交通系統,未來將在巴生谷一帶,擬定12個快捷巴士系統幹線。

根據《中國報》瞭解,除了陸路公共交通委員會,部分地方政府包括梳邦再也市議會,也把快捷巴士系統列入交通發展藍圖之中。

首個階段快速巴士計劃,是從斯迪亞再也電動火車站開始,直抵位于格華芝班路前的USJ第6區輕快鐵站。

從斯迪亞再也電動火車站往USJ6的輕快鐵站的快捷士系統幹線,是被視區域性幹線,主要是提供較小區域性的公共交通綜合系統。

緊接的是從吉隆坡中環往巴生市區的幹線,主要是沿著聯邦大道而行。

在計劃中,快捷巴士與一般普通巴士並不一樣,除了在巴士專行道行駛之外,所停泊的車站也比一般巴士候車亭還要少。

吳木炎:帶動莎阿南發展

城市土地運用及交通規劃專家吳木炎說,一旦快捷巴士系統在聯邦大道進行,除了能提供快捷巴士川行服務,也會帶動聯邦大道兩旁的發展。

他說,在雪州境內,尤其是從八打靈再也區到梳邦再也區,在聯邦大道兩旁的發展已飽和。

他指出,可是從梳邦再也到莎阿南至巴生之間,聯邦大道兩旁還有相當多空間,尤其是莎阿南的發展與聯邦大道有一段距離。

他說,一旦快捷巴士吉隆坡中環巴生幹線啟用,將能改變梳邦至巴生之間的聯邦大道兩旁的發展。

“快捷巴士系統將會把發展重新拉回聯邦大道兩旁,也將改變聯邦大道兩旁未來的發展趨勢。”

LRT3 route agreed at over 35km between PJ and Klang

http://www.kinibiz.com/story/corporate/96519/lrt3-route-agreed-at-over-35km-between-pj-and-klang.html

 

The third light rail transit line (LRT3) for the Klang Valley is expected to reach the public consultation stage as early as September, dependant only on the approval of the Land Transport Commission (SPAD), an industry source told KiniBiz.

Prasarana, the public transport operator that will eventually build and run the RM9 billion passenger rail line, submitted their proposal to SPAD two months ago in May.

Details of the 35 km route (see map below) proposed by Prasarana leaked out in consultations yesterday between the transport operator and Klang MP Charles Santiago.

The route proposed to SPAD by Prasarana will begin at the Bandar Utama MRT station currently in construction and trace the North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) to an interchange station with the Kelana Jaya Line in the vicinity of Glenmarie, also under construction as part of a line extension.

The rail line will pass through Hicom-Glenmarie Industrial Park and Shah Alam’s more established neighbourhoods. Within Shah Alam, there will be stations at Section 13, Section 14, the Shah Alam Stadium, UiTM and I-City.

Trains will travel down Jalan Meru north of Klang to a station built adjacent to the Klang KTM Komuter station before heading further south to Bukit Tinggi along Jalan Langat.

There could be as many as 24 stations on the route if a branch line to Setia Alam is built.

LRT 3 route map 170714

Construction of the passenger rail line, codenamed LRT3, is projected to cost RM250 million per kilometre not including land acquisition costs, according to news reports.

Some of the high cost to construct stations on the rail line could be subsidised by profitable transit-oriented development, Prasarana CEO Shahril Mokhtar told KiniBiz in July last year.

“We are looking at planning (residential) developments with a station, as part of the project, so the developers can help finance the station,” Shahril said.

“They (the developers) will be willing to work with us as the stations increase the value of the land as well…each station costs like RM50 million to RM60 million, imagine if we have 20 stations, so we save a lot.”

The LRT3 line has been under planning for over a year. According to a source, Prasarana studied 10 possible route alignments before “zeroing in on this particular option.”

A notable change to the route while on the drawing board was a decision to move the Klang terminus from Port Klang to a location further south, near Bandar Parklands off Jalan Langat.

New or recently completed residential developments along the route include SP Setia’s Setia Alam township as well as WCT’s various projects in Bandar Bukit Tinggi and Bandar Parklands.

However, about half of the proposed route runs through established industrial and residential areas with little room for new development.
