Power Outlets Onboard Kelana Jaya Line LRT Trains

Apparently, RapidKL’s Kelana Jaya LRT line also have power outlets along the train. Please note that this is a 4-coach train. We believe 2-coach trains should also have this one.

While we are not sure whether passengers can use them or not, we can assure you that it is working. One of the possible uses is to charge dead mobile phones, tablets and bring them back to life. This is definitely useful, especially if you are on your way from KLCC to Kelana Jaya, which takes really long time.

Other than RapidKL Kelana Jaya LRT, KTM Komuter’s Class 92 trains are also equipped with power outlet. For Class 92, it looks like it is more intended for passenger use due to high number of them.

We are not sure yet on availability of power outlets on the following trains:

  • RapidKL Kelana Jaya LRT 2-coach trains
  • RapidKL Monorail
  • RapidKL Ampang Line
  • KLIA Transit / Ekspres
  • KTM Class 81 (KTM Komuter)
  • KTM Class 82 (KTM Komuter)
  • KTM Class 83 (KTM Komuter)
  • KTM Class 92 (KTM Komuter)

BUILDING NEW YORK: A CONVERSATION WITH MICHAEL HORODNICEANU

The President of MTA Capital Construction sits down with New York Times metro reporter Michael Grynbaum to provide insights into two giant projects that are reshaping the city and the way we travel within it.

KTM Intercity SCS Special Train Service

KTM Intercity has recently introduced a special train service that covers between KL Sentral and Ipoh at a competitive rate.

Users can buy the tickets at KTM Intercity counters located at KL Sentral and Ipoh Station. One-way journey will cost RM 25 for adults and RM 17 for children. There is no assigned seating for this service.

We were impressed by initiative from KTM to make the best out of what they currently have, we are disappointed with the uniavailability of onboard toilet for the coach. Journey between KL Sentral and Ipoh is not a short one. With a rough estimation of about two hours, quite a number of people would need to use the onboard toilet while they are on their journey. The availability of onboard toilet is very important to enable better customer experience.

However, we understand that this is probably the best solution that can come out from KTM Berhad’s management

KTM Berhad is one of the few service providers that are being compelled to use below-average rolling stocks, impose below-average train fares and numerous other limitations. We understand that i suffers from operational loss every year. Therefore, the government needs to improve this situation.

Railway industry in Malaysia as a lot of room for growth. Right now, only North-South highway is our transport backbone between northern and southern Malaysia. Therefore, by focusing more effort on improving rail services in Malaysia, we believe that the industry can prosper at a greater pace.
