GTP 1.0 Improving Urban Public Transport

The 11 initiatives implemented in the GTP 1.0 to improve the urban public transport (UPT) system achieved significant progress in terms of adding capacity and improving accessibility and connectivity. The UPT NKRA is on track to provide a reliable, affordable, convenient and integrated public transport system in Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley, while at the same, addressing the city’s chronic traffic congestion problem.

The following initiatives grouped under four main categories of Bus, Rail, Integration and Network were implemented over the last three years.

 

  • Increasing Capacity of Inter- and Intra-City Trains

    • The GTP 1.0 addressed the problem of congestion by introducing 35 four-car sets for the Kelana Jaya LRT line in 2011, increasing the daily passenger capacity to 258,156 passengers from 254,745 in 2010.

    • As a result, 10.4 million or 18% more commuters travelled on the line, which has been the most congested for many years, compared to 2010. This translated into a ridership of about 44,170 passengers during peak periods. In terms of the KTM Komuter service, four six-car sets started operations in March 2012, helping to ease the morning rush by increasing the ridership an additional 32,000 persons.

    • Rail usage presently contributes to about 40% of the daily public transport ridership.

  • Enhancing the Bus Experience

    Enhancing the Bus Experience

    • As the condition and proper maintenance of bus stops is crucial for encouraging the use of public transport, 1,102 bus stops in Sepang, Subang Jaya, Ampang Jaya, Selayang, Shah Alam and elsewhere were upgraded in 2011.

    • The GTP 1.0 goal of upgrading 1,102 bus stops was achieved while the design and planning of 306 new bus stops are currently underway. To complement the aesthetic enhancements of the bus stops, 470 RapidKL buses were introduced to increase the frequency of buses in the Klang Valley.

    • This initiative resulted in 4.04 million more passengers using the service compared to the preceding year.

  • Refurbishing and Re-Designating Pudu Sentral

    • The Integrated Transport Terminal Bandar Tasik Selatan (ITT BTS) or Terminal Bersepadu Selatan began full operations on 1 March 2011.
