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.

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.

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.

LRT3 route agreed at over 35km between PJ and Klang



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.

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.
