It is a shame that.....

6-car trains will always be available - only across the Causeway.

Even if it is so......

I doubt KTM Komuter can have 80% capacity of SMRT.

I think u need to understand the different between
and the rest of rail transport in Malaysia

I xplain in mixed English and Bahasa.

Anda belajar Geografi?
Anda belajar taburan penduduk?

if yes then proceed to the next

Check back taburan penduduk d S'pore dan Klang Valley

then check back SMRT stand for what

Singapore Mass Rapid Transit

then u need understand what is Mass all about
then u need understand what is Rapid all about

do they allowed their rail track for goods? Cement? or other freight or passenger services? Answer is no

ok no we check back KTMB

I think u know the meaning is.
I bet u know what other services running on their rail track.

so back to your 1st reply..
"It is a shame that.... if u keep complaining"

6-car train

The government already bought the 6-car trains, just waiting for them to be delivered. Anyway, they brought in an ETS if I'm not mistaken to help relieve the crowds for the time being. A commuter service is like a regional service, so you can't expect frequencies of 2 minutes, especially since there's a shared section of track between KL Sentral and Putra. More so, the tracks also have to be shared for intercity and freight.

If the people can change their mindset about Komuter after the 38 sets of 6-car are brought in, I would think that KTMB will ask the government to buy more trains too. It's a matter of demand and supply, but 1 party has to start it going first. Together with the Klang Valley MRT once it's completed, people will see the benefits of rail travel - unless the MRT under-performs.

to compare apple to apple, mmg la

but KTMB is not for mass rapid

that's why MRT right now come into the picture in Klang Valley, even though the project for phase 1 started at high/rich area. (same mistake PutraLRT done before)

Why I said mistake? People rich family don't want their children appeare in public so that risk of "culik". THey rather drove a volvo, audi, BMW for several KM to school. Kaya maaa

If u can remember, when phase 2 of putralrt started? from Damai to Terminal GOmbak (old name) After that they realised the ridership became high because of Wangsamaju, and the station in between.

However, right now the total ridership is now high either from Kelana Jaya or Terminal Gombak (I like to call its old name) because of developement of both area.

History of both services (putraLRT and StarLRT) Nama pun LRT = Light Rail Transit or Train actually a bit late.

Biasalah Malaysia, sudah kena ketuk baru buat kerja. Because we (Malaysia) won to host Sukan Komanwel, then the project baru nak gerak, if not it will ding dong, kalau tak host that event, mungkin this projeck lagi laaa lama nak gerak.

After this so called Light Rail Transit dah tak mampu nak tampung the ridership, then the MRT masuk dalam plan as The Greater KL Project.

Bear in Mind! KTMB, ETS or Komuter Train is not part of MRT. if not KTMB also one of the Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB).

As u know RapidKL (train+bus), ERL, Monorail is part of SPNB

As I remember my Arwah bapa said,
1. the Komuter is just mainly to transport outer Klang Valley to KL center
2. City Liner is to transport passenger from outer ring of Kuala Lumpur
3. Intrakota as a feeder bus within KL (housing area etc)

but the plan has change
As I remember, Komuter still same rule but for shorter range. ETS taking over the longer range as we can see now,

so just waiting the train to come laa...

do you know that to spend billon to purchase rolling stock for KTMB was highly debates in Parlimen since the idea to electrifying durin Tun M era?

so don't blame KTMB, Blame our MPs that who want to be hero in Parlimen that causing Rakyat became one of the ikan sardin dalam Tin cap Ayam.

What I mean of

KTMB, ETS or Komuter Train is not part of MRT. if not KTMB also one of the Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB). They only participate to support this MRT project.

KTMB will never ever be in Prasarana Berhad..

KTMB will never be back in Private Sector, high risk woo..

It is a shame that.....

KL MRT will have 4-car trains instead of 6 or 8. History of Kelana Jaya Line will repeat itself. Remember the days of 2-car trains?

yes, it's true, dunnow what the reason, if last time the PutraLrt supposely 4 car train, due to economy downturn, the set reduced from 4 to 2 car set and offset with class25 loco for KTMB (if this rumors is true for contra order)

If you think carefully

..that when there are long komuter trains, then KTM Komuters will be competing with the KTM Intercity trains. This may be a reason why no 6 car trains are in KL.

Other Related Aspects

One should look at the management of Malaysia's land transportation as a whole.

The road infrastructure in Klang Valley area and in the city of Kuala Lumpur, could not accommodate vehicles unless all the roads are designed with minimum 4 lanes...ridiculous?

To see success in public transport administration, the government must centralise all public transport operators (road or rail) to achieve a common vision.

Malaysia's economy is dynamic, very volatile and rich with "too many" active participants, each wanting to have its own share of the pie.

(now that is the issue that has to be made clear)... Impossible?
