    Me too! The toll, all the time wasted while sitting in traffic jam and the exorbitant parking fees in KL will be a thing of the past.

    Heard Hannah and friends are objecting to the project getting to an early start? What is the status? When is the service available?

    I read its not any objection, but a complaint or dissatisfaction over unfulfilled parking facilities for commuters who drive to the station thereon commute by LRT to work. We shall soon see how residents nearest to the LRT stations are going to react next. I wouldn't like to see too many cars parked in front of my home as if its free for all parking for commuters. This is where a gated section may help prevent free parkers. Next is the train noise..we shall see.
    For all those living further away, obviously its a very welcome event. Lucky I'm not residing 30m away from the LRT line. I would never ever choose a home very near to any busy main road. Can't tell what future developments in store in the near future.

    USJ19, bslee has already explained why Hannah & friends were not enthusiastic about the train services starting early. Please scroll up. Luckily for me, my house is not within hearing distance, only walking distance

    This is where there's check and balance to what is implemented for everyone. Check and balance is a good thing and its mostly in the best interest of all rakyat. I could easily presume if any flaws and mistakes in the system is just let to pass, and it seems natural they react back and accuse you're all some ungrateful lot, this is NOT right! Matters that involve public interest cannot be just foolishly accepted wholesome without any question and in the aftermath, we poor rakyat suffer from bad consequences, if any should arise later on. Its good to hear there's voices to complain about any dissatisfaction.

    I wonder if we get free rides on the extension side? Pay only if go beyond Klana Jaya station which is the old line.

    It is a challenge to get to the train station from your house...

    I'm not talking about feeder service. This problem can be solved by providing shuttle buses.

    I am talking about the hot and humid weather here. Unless the bus stop is just next to your house, the walking journey can be a test to your office attire especially for ladies.

    This is different in Singapore where you can find many trees along the road, and Singapore don't have a big housing estate like USJ/SJ, the bus stops/train station is not far from the nearest HBD housing estate.

    Now is 34 deg C outside but it feel like 38 deg C !! I guess people still need to drive a car and park at the train station..

    In 2014, when I was at Shenzhen and Guangzhou for a week, the LRT was my frequent mode of transport to all over the huge city. Its like travelling the KL Putra LRT, no significant difference. Although the LRT is all underground, I had to walk distances to any LRT station. But then at certain major stations, the underground is filled with shopping lots and a very lively area till midnight everyday. You can shop all sorts or have tidbits everywhere underground. Its like a shopping city underground. Look at our stations..barren of any shopping environment and boring.
    Its was hot and humid in May, I was drenched in sweat. Hot cold, hot cold, in & out air con to outside temperature frequently during the trips. Its all in a day's events.
    I suppose those urban culture is so different from here. Commoners don't necessarily own cars nor drive and park at any station. Imagine 8.5 million population in that city, a third of entire Malaysia population in one city. At central Guangzhou, there's train trams and efficient feeder buses for only 2 Yuan fare.

    May I add to BSLee - you folks just go to London (and maybe other major cities in the world) - tell me, do they have any shuttle or feeder services? NONE my friend. Maybe the London buses are adequate

    As for the complaint of no parking facilities at our suburban stations, I think not all of the suburban Tube stations in London have parking either. I know there is a huge one in Heathrow but some small towns around London don't have it. BTW, I think the issue in USJ7 is just probably being delayed awaiting MPSJ approval (?)
