Any frequent LRT user here? This is a good news for everyone. I have not use this facility for more than 5 years. Must try it to get to KL to avoid the ridiculous jam.

Yah .. hope they can complete the extension project in 2 instead of 3 years ... then I can go to Central Market for breakfast and be home in 1 hour!~ But the return trip would probably cost more than the breakfast...
Khap!~

Its going to be quite true to a large extent. Nothing going to be cheap in this country, you'd just have to be wealthier to keep up. Thats A FACT! Short of that..GIVE UP any ideas!
But then again, I could broadly guess that LRT will be operating near full during rush hours, otherwise it could be near empty during many hours of the day, and the company run more trains only those peak hours and minimum during low peak, depending on the trend as they see fit to conserve or save.
So, waiting times could be debatable.

Ay BSLee ... breakfast can be at 6:30 or 7 am ... before the rush hour ... Go early and get immediate serving ....
Also, stop at Taman Jaya for a few rounds first .. work up an appetite ... then take the trip back to Paramount Garden for "chuk" .. if you don't feel like going to KL ... many^2 options when the lines start here ... can't wait ...

morning peak waiting time will go down to 2 minutes by the middle of the year when they have more of these new trains.

The other waiting times are 4, 7 and 11 minutes depending on the time of day.

Im pushing them to buy another 18 of these 4-carriage trains so they can have all 4-carriage train operations. The idea of using smaller trains during the off peak hours is silly.

Just to warn you tho...it is quite possible that the regular fares for the LRT may be increased once the extension is completed.

Cheers, m

Of course, but that won't dismiss a fact that it may still be a costly routine. Nevertheless if you insist, why not!... enjoy it ya!

I dont think this is going to solve the traffic problem it only will help the commuters to travel in less cramped Lrts and get to work on time

As long as most people think its a must to own a car someday, traffic problems will continue indefinitely.

The public transport must improve first, the bus must come within every 20-30 minutes tops, they mus only allow a fixed amount of passengers in the bus, air-con all must be working properly, must have people monitoring the bus drivers for safety purposes(how many buses crashed already). These are just to name a few things tht must be done before people will start thinking about taking public transport.

Am not aware of city buses crashes on newspaper. Long distance driving and city commuting driving are different. u can't put the 2 together.

Agreed that the public transport must improve. But more importantly, malaysian are getting less and less civic minded, they will make 4 lanes out of 3, creating bottlenecks which makes traffic flow slower than when u follow the lane as it move... Everyone tries to outsqueeze each other.. No jam oso became jam loh...

Everyone shares the road...instead of trying to get ahead of each other in a dangerous fashion. all the drivers honk when they want to get ahead and the other drivers take note.

In 4 days there we only saw 2 traffic jams...at 4-way junctions.

Both were caused by overeager drivers trying to get past the intersection before others instead of waiting.

The public transport must improve first,

Last ONE WHOLE DECADE was wasted time especially during our former PM's tenure and NOTHING was done to improve the situation other than political issues fronting the news all for nothing. Its all easier suggested than done. Its getting awry as time goes by. I've just no faith in this regime to do anything concrete.

I say Malaysians are a spoilt lot, we can have a state to art transport sysyem, but Malaysians will still drive their cars through traffic jams and park their car at the door step if they can.

Owning a car (more expensive, more than one or fancy the better) is a mark of status here, not because entirely for neccessity. As long this is the mentality, expect change to be at snail pace and the problems continue. People just don't get it that CARS ARE EXPENSIVE HERE and depreciation on value is among the worst in the world. They just don't get it lah!...and the gahmen happily continue to collect huge taxes on the auto industry.
Go try encourage people NOT to buy new car for next 2 years, see if anyone listen or not?..

Some of the stations will be park and ride e.g. Station 7 i.e. the Goodyear Court 2.
Hope the parking is going to be orderly otherwise it is going to be another Taipan!~
The MPSJ fellas must start thinking of what action to take for errant parking which is sure to take place ... e.g. the Asiajaya station for starters.
I agree with Firefox ... M'sians can be even more kiasu ..

Khap!~
