Termination of SEMUA and SEPADU TouchNGo daily pass

Petaling Jaya, 05 November 2008: Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd (RapidKL) will discontinue the issuance of SEMUA and SEPADU daily pass effective 1st December 2008.

RapidKL General Manager for Communications Division, Ebi Azly Abdullah said the demand for SEMUA and SEPADU daily pass, which is currently available via TouchNGo, is very low.

“Our statistics show that SEPADU is used by only 0.002 percent of RapidKL commuters while SEMUA is utilised by 0.005 percent of our total ridership,” he said in a statement issued here today.

Ebi said, commuters can still continue to enjoy discounted fares on RapidKL bus and LRT services by purchasing the Monthly Travel Cards (MTC), which will give them discounted fare for unlimited travel for one month.

The cost of the Monthly Travel Cards is as follows:
Integrated Monthly Travel Card For Bus and LRT RM135
Bus Monthly Travel Card For Bus only RM80
LRT Monthly Travel Card For LRT only RM100



Cost Comparison

By purchasing a MTC, commuters can save between RM40 to RM75 a month depending on their travel pattern. This is illustrated in the chart below:

Integrated Monthly Travel Card @ RM135
RM135 divided by 30 days = RM4.50 a day


SEPADU @ RM7
RM7 x 30 days = RM 210 a month


SAVINGS
RM75

Bus Monthly Travel Card @ RM80
RM80 divided by 30 days = RM2.67 a day


SEMUA @ RM4
RM4 x 30 days = RM120 a month


SAVINGS
RM40

Suruhanjaya pengangkutan

Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat yang bakal beroperasi pada pertengahan tahun depan merupakan bukti komitmen kerajaan untuk memastikan sistem dan infrastruktur pengangkutan awam negara menyamai tahap antarabangsa.

Timbalan Menteri Pengangkutan, Datuk Seri Lajim Ukin tidak menafikan sistem pengangkutan awam di negara ini masih banyak kelemahan dan perlu diperbaiki segera dalam usaha meningkatkan penggunaan pengangkutan awam di kalangan rakyat Malaysia.

''Sistem pengangkutan negara ini bukan sahaja tidak cekap tetapi mempunyai banyak masalah disebabkan terdapat pertindihan tugas dan tanggungjawab kerana ia membabitkan sekurang-kurangnya lima kementerian dan tujuh agensi serta jabatan.

''Jadi dengan penubuhan suruhanjaya ini, kerajaan akan memastikan sektor pengangkutan mempunyai garis panduan dasar yang jelas dan fokus dalam memperbaiki sistem pengangkutan di Malaysia,'' katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia ketika ditemui di pejabatnya di sini, baru-baru ini.


Beliau berkata, Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat yang bakal dipengerusikan oleh Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak itu akan menentukan fungsi suruhanjaya berkenaan sama ada ia bebas atau diletakkan di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri atau kementerian terpilih.

Tambah beliau, matlamat kerajaan menubuhkan Suruhanjaya itu juga bertujuan memastikan Malaysia memiliki satu sistem pengangkutan awam yang efisien, sekali gus menggalakkan rakyat menjadikan ia sebagai pengangkutan pilihan seperti di negara-negara maju.

Inisiatif itu adalah konsisten dengan matlamat jangka panjang untuk meningkatkan penggunaan pengangkutan awam daripada tahap sedia ada iaitu 20 peratus kepada 30 peratus seperti yang disasarkan dalam Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9), ujarnya.

Jelasnya, atas alasan itu maka kerajaan begitu prihatin memperuntukkan satu jumlah yang besar iaitu RM35 bilion untuk melaksana dan mempertingkatkan infrastruktur pengangkutan awam pada Bajet 2009 lalu.

''Kerajaan amat serius dalam isu pengangkutan awam dan sebab itu juga kerajaan menubuhkan Suruhanjaya ini agar dapat memastikan Malaysia memiliki sistem pengangkutan awam terbaik untuk dimanfaat oleh rakyat,'' tambahnya.

Beliau menambah, Jawatankuasa yang terlibat dalam Pelan Induk Pengangkutan Awam telah menjalankan kajian di beberapa negara, antaranya India, Jepun dan Singapura mencari model terbaik untuk dijadikan contoh dalam sistem pengangkutan di Malaysia.

Sistem Pengangkutan Awam Negara - Apa dah Jadi

Pengumuman terbaharu kerajaan untuk memperbaiki pengangkutan awam di Lembah Klang disambut gembira dan penuh harapan oleh mereka kerana semakin ramai pengguna bergantung kepadanya sejak akhir-akhir ini.

"Semakin banyak orang akan menggunakan kenderaan awam kerana kos perjalanan meningkat. Pembangunan sistem pengangkutan awam tidak dapat ditangguhkan lagi, jika tidak keyakinan masyarakat terhadapnya akan terjejas " kata pakar ekonomi Prof Dr Mansor Jusoh kepada Bernama di sini.

Usaha memperbaiki pengangkutan awam di Lembah Klang secara lebih konkrit mula terlihat pada 2004, apabila RapidKL, operator yang mengintergrasikan perkhidmatan bas dan tren yang dimiliki kerajaan, memulakan operasinya di ibukota ini.


RapidKL kini mencatat empat juta penumpang setiap minggu, menggunakan perkhidmatan 908 bas syarikat itu yang beroperasi di 161 laluan dan dua perkhidmatan LRT (Kelana Jaya Rail Line dan Ampang Rail Line) di 48 stesen LRT.

Selain RapidKL, sebahagian besar warga kota terutama yang menetap atau bekerja di sekitar Lembah Klang seperti di Seremban dan Rawang bergantung kepada perkhidmatan komuter.

Statistik KTM Komuter menunjukkan seramai 38.75 juta penumpang menggunakan komuter pada tahun lepas iaitu 10.8 peratus peningkatan penumpang berbanding 34.97 juta penumpang pada 2006.

Bagi Penasihat FOMCA, Datuk Hamdan Adnan perkhidmatan Komuter perlu satu langkah drastik untuk diperbaiki kerana bilangan koc dan kekerapan tren tidak dapat menampung peningkatan mendadak penumpang.

"Mungkin kerajaan perlu memberi pinjaman khas untuk KTM membeli tren dan koc baru. Ia kini sudah terlalu sesak dengan penumpang," katanya.

Pengarah Institut Pengangkutan Malaysia (MITRANS) Prof Madya Sabariah Mohamad berkata kerajaan perlu melihat isu pengangkutan awam secara menyeluruh kerana ia bukan isu tunggal.

Mengakui bahawa usaha menggalakkan rakyat menggunakan pengangkutan awam sebagai langkah positif, beliau berkata kerajaan perlu menggubal dasar pengangkutan awam yang jelas sebelum ia diterjemahkan kepada plan induk pengangkutan awam negara.

"Kerajaan perlu jelas mengenai objektif utama pengangkutan awam itu. Adakah ia mesra alam atau bagaimana," katanya kepada Bernama di Shah Alam, baru-baru ini.

Daripada dasar yang jelas, katanya, pihak terbabit seperti Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan (PBT), pemaju perumahan, operator pengangkutan awam dan agensi terbabit akan dapat merancang sistem pengangkutan awam yang lebih cekap.

"Di Britain, sejak tahun 1970-an, pemaju perlu memastikan kawasan perumahan yang akan dimajukan mempunyai akses kepada pengangkutan awam," katanya memberi sambil contoh bagaimana pra-syarat pondok bas mesti dibina 300 meter dari sesuatu kawasan perumahan.

Sabariah berkata kebanyakan pendekatan sedia ada di negara ini lebih bersifat jangka pendek dan tidak menyeluruh, sekaligus tidak akan menyelesaikan masalah selagi dasar pengangkutan awam negara tidak diwujudkan.

Ops Sikap ke-17 bermula di seluruh negara

SHAH ALAM 23 Sept. - Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) hari ini melancarkan Ops Sikap ke-17 secara serentak di seluruh negara dalam usaha mengurangkan kadar kemalangan dan membendung kemalangan maut ketika sambutan perayaan Aidilfitri.

Operasi selama dua minggu yang bertemakan Pandu Berhemat, Semua Selamat akan bermula esok sehingga 8 Oktober ini.

Timbalan Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Ismail Omar berkata, Ops Sikap kali ini akan memberi penekanan secara 'penguatkuasaan kreatif' dengan menggunakan lima pendekatan yang dikenal pasti dapat membantu mengurangkan kadar kemalangan.

Beliau berkata, tiga daripada pendekatan yang dimaksudkan ialah mengambil tindakan saman dan nasihat, memberi maklumat mengenai waktu puncak serta waktu selesa untuk pemanduan kepada orang ramai dan mempertingkatkan penguatkuasaan di sektor Ops Sikap yang ditetapkan.

Menurut beliau, dua lagi pendekatan ialah memfokuskan kawasan serta mengambil tindakan sewajarnya untuk mengurangkan kemalangan dan memaparkan papan tanda yang jelas.

"Strategi dan penguatkuasaan sepanjang Ops Sikap ini adalah berterusan dan dilakukan secara 'terang-terangan dan berselindung'.

"Bagaimanapun PDRM masih mengekalkan strategi yang diguna pakai sebelum ini iaitu melalui pemantauan bas secara penyamaran, membuat rondaan menyeluruh di kawasan paling kerap berlaku kemalangan dan pemantauan melalui 19 menara pemerhati polis serta di jalan-jalan Persekutuan dan juga lebuh raya," kata beliau.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam teks ucapan yang dibacakan Timbalan Pengarah Keselamatan Dalam Negeri dan Ketenteraman Awam (KDNKA) PDRM, Datuk Abdul Rahman Hussin.

Hadir sama Ketua Polis Selangor, Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar; Ketua Trafik Pasukan Bukit Aman, Senior Asisten Komisioner II Abdul Aziz Yusof; bekas Ketua Trafik Pasukan, Datuk Hamza Taib; Datuk Bandar Shah Alam, Mazalan Md. Noor dan Ketua Pegawai Operasi Kumpulan Telekom Malaysia (TM), Datuk Adnan Rofiee.

Tambah Ismail, berdasarkan kajian terhadap pelaksanaan Ops Sikap sebelum ini, terdapat perkembangan yang positif apabila statistik kemalangan maut pada 2007 yang mencatatkan 203 kes menunjukkan penurunan sebanyak 10 kes berbanding tahun 2006 dengan 213 kes.

More bus licences for Raya rush home

The Star Friday September 5, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR: Temporary express bus permits or temporary variation licences (LPS) will be issued on the spot to put an additional 2,000 buses on the road for the balik kampung rush this Hari Raya.

The Government will also allow operators who are providing extra buses to choose routes according to demand.

This is in addition to the 9,000 litres of subsidised diesel to be given to each bus from Sept 15, which was announced on Wednesday by Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad.

Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development Minister Datuk Noh Omar said that prior to the announcements, only about 100 LPS were taken up although the ministry had allocated 2,000 permits for this festive period.

Noh said they have agreed to open routing for the additional buses, which meant that LPS holders could pick their routes according to demand.

Personal attention: Noh Omar checking bus ticket sales for the coming Hari Raya festive period at the Puduraya bus terminal during a working visit to the terminal in Kuala Lumpur Thursday.

Previously, additional buses were only allowed to operate routes designated under the LPS.

On school, factory and charter bus operators being reluctant to lease out their vehicles as additional buses, Noh said he had spoken to the school bus operators, and they had agreed to lease them out at a reasonable rate.

Noh was speaking to reporters after visiting ticket counters at the Puduraya bus terminal. Earlier, he had a closed-door meeting with bus operators.

Most tickets for travel between Sept 25 and 27 have been snapped up.

Noh said the Government understood the problems faced by bus operators, which was why they agreed to reduce their road tax and toll charges.

“We allowed them to impose a 30% fare surcharge for this festive month, and increased their subsidised diesel quota. The diesel subsidy will cost the Government more than RM100mil for a month,” he said.

He said the authorities would come down hard on ticket touts, and threatened to revoke the permits of bus companies who are in cahoots with them.

Bus operators had also agreed to ban their counter staff from using walkie-talkies, as they were used to communicate with touts, he said.

In an immediate response, Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president Datuk Ashfar Ali said that with such measures he was confident that there would be enough buses to meet the Hari Raya demand.

“Give us a few days to sort things out. Hopefully by Monday, additional tickets will be made available,” he said.

Bus fares to increase before Hari Raya - Noh Omar

The Government has agreed to increase stage and express bus fares but has not decided on the quantum.

Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development Minister Datuk Noh Omar said the new fares would be announced before Hari Raya in October.

Noh, however, shot down the Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association’s appeal for a 100% fare increase, saying it would be a great burden on the public.

“Their appeal for an increase cannot be refused but a 100% increase means a RM30 fare would be RM60. This is too high,” he said, adding that the memorandum from the association was accepted during the National Inflation Council meeting chaired by the Prime Minister on Monday.

Noh said the ministry has drawn up a formula on the fare increase, which it now has to discuss with the association.

“We understand their financial problem because prices of diesel, tyre and engine oil have gone up a few times since 2005, while fares have not increased,” he told reporters after presenting excellence award to 68 ministry staff here yesterday.


Noh also said that the Government was looking into the operators’ other problems, including complaints that they could not sell tickets yet for the Hari Raya season for fear there would not be enough buses.

“They said some buses do not want to operate during the festive season because it is only full for a one-way journey such as Kuala Lumpur to Johor and returns with fewer passengers,” he said.

Among ideas the Government was studying to help prevent bus companies from incurring losses, particularly when running services to rural areas, was to issue permits for them to transport school children and factory workers.

He said Mara was incurring losses of about RM3mil per year providing subsidised transport at Felda schemes.

The ministry was also studying the possibility of allowing the 20,000 school bus operators to ferry members of the public after they had sent students to school, to enable them to increase their income, he added.

Association president Datuk Ashfar Ali, however, insisted that the Government meets its three requests: an increase in diesel quota for both stage and express buses, a 100% fare increase and goodies for the industry in the coming Budget.

Taxi
If you want to take a taxi out of Kuala Lumpur to long distance destination (often not faster than taking a bus) Puduraya bus station is the right place to get one. Taxis depart from upstairs at Puduraya bus station. Fares are negotiable, depending on the distance.


But the taxi won’t leave the terminal until it has four passengers. Malaysians use this service mostly only at peak travel periods, so you could be waiting for some time for a cab to fill up. Otherwise you’ll have to charter a whole taxi.

Estimated Taxi Fares: (from Puduraya Bus Station)
Bukit Fraser – RM 120
Cameron Highlands – RM 140
Genting Highlands – RM 60
Ipoh – RM 160
Johor Bahru – RM 240
Lumut – RM 200
Melaka – RM 140
Penang – RM 240

Remarks:
1. Taxis picking up customers from Puduraya bus station often charge an exorbitant sum - sometimes refusing to run the taxi meter but instead negotiate on rates (Try walking down the street to hail for a taxi instead). The taxi rate hits sky high after midnight.
2. There have been many cases of street crime, targeting foreigners in particular. Be careful especially when waiting for night coaches. So stay alert!

Bayar Saman Trafik Guna Kad Kredit.

Wednesday, 25 July 2007

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 Julai (Bernama) --

Pesalah trafik kini boleh menjelaskan bayaran saman mereka menggunakan kad kredit sebagai salah satu usaha untuk mengurangkan lebih 10 juta saman yang masih tertunggak setakat ini. Timbalan Pengarah (Perancangan Strategik) Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Bukit Aman Datuk Nooryah Md Anvar berkata tunggakan itu berlaku kerana sebahagian besar pesalah trafik yang dikenakan saman menangguhkan pembayaran selain daripada pengguna dari negara jiran masih gagal menjelaskan saman mereka.

"Jumlah saman itu termasuk membabitkan pengguna jalan raya dari negara jiran, terutama Singapura, Thailand, Brunei dan Indonesia," katanya kepada pemberita selepas majlis penyerahan tugasnya sebelum ini sebagai Ketua Trafik Pasukan Bukit Aman kepada Ketua Trafik Bandaraya SAC II Hamza Taib di sini.

Beliau berkata dengan kemudahan itu, pesalah trafik tidak perlu lagi menangguh atau mengelakkan pembayaran saman kerana ia boleh dijelaskan menggunakan kad kredit di semua kaunter bayaran kompaun trafik setiap ibu pejabat polis daerah, Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan dan di pusat membeli belah seluruh negara.

Nooryah berkata kerja pemasangan mesin untuk kegunaan kad kredit di kaunter-kaunter berkenaan sedang dijalankan dan dijangka dapat digunakan sepenuhnya sebelum Ogos ini.

Pengakuan Mat Rempit

Info Dipetik : Mohd Nur Asnawi Daud Harian Metro 12 Mei 2008

KUALA LUMPUR: “Selepas meneguk ‘air setan’, saya jadi berani dan seronok melakukan aksi bahaya,” kata seorang Mat Rempit yang diberkas polis dalam operasi membanteras lumba haram di sekitar ibu kota, awal pagi semalam.

Mat Rempit dikenali sebagai Amir berkata, beberapa jam sebelum melakukan aksi ‘pacak’ di sekitar Taman Tasik Titiwangsa di sini, dia meneguk satu tin minuman keras yang dibeli di sebuah kedai dengan harga RM6.

“Kalau dalam keadaan normal, saya tidak berani melakukan aksi bahaya kerana sedar ia perbuatan yang boleh meragut nyawa saya dan pengguna jalan raya lain.

“Namun, kerana berada di bawah pengaruh alkohol, saya bertindak di luar batasan dan lupa diri,” katanya ketika ditemui di sini, semalam.

Lelaki itu yang juga bekas pelajar sebuah pusat pengajian di Perlis berkata, dia seronok melakukan perbuatan itu dan sering keluar bersama rakan.

“Ketika melakukannya saya memang seronok, namun bila kena tangkap dengan polis, rasa menyesal pun ada tapi sudah tidak berguna lagi.

“Kedua-dua ibu bapa juga tidak mengetahui saya terbabit dalam lumba haram dan minum arak,” katanya.

Amir berkata, selepas ditahan polis dan bakal dikenakan tindakan, aksi bahaya malam tadi mungkin yang terakhir buatnya.

Katanya, aktiviti seumpama itu tidak berfaedah dan membahayakan nyawa sendiri serta pengguna jalan raya.

Amir antara 10 penunggang dan pembonceng motosikal yang ditahan Skuad 42 Polis Trafik Kuala Lumpur, awal pagi semalam.

Ketua Skuad 42 Polis Trafik Kuala Lumpur, Cif Inspektor Muhammad Farid Muntalib, berkata dalam operasi bermula jam 12 tengah malam itu, polis memberkas tujuh penunggang dan dua pembonceng motosikal kerana memandu secara berbahaya di sekitar ibu kota.

Syed Hamid apologises for rush hour jams caused by roadblocks



Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar has apologised to city folk caught in the morning rush-hour gridlock today due to roadblocks on all roads leading to Parliament. he said the police had to take such preventive measure to maintain security.

"I know and I'm sorry that it (the roadblocks) had created a lot of inconvenience to the public, but it was taken in the interest of public safety and security," he said at the Parliament's lobby moments ago.

Thousands of city folk were caught in the morning rush-hour jam due to information received by the police about “security threat” from an illegal demonstration allegedly planned by Pakatan Rakyat supporters.

As a result, 12 roadblocks were set up by the police around the Klang Valley since 2pm on Saturday.

Syed Hamid also said the decision was made based on the numerous statements that had been made by various quarters calling people to demonstrate at Parliament. He said the government had evidence that Pakatan Rakyat intended to interfere with public's interest.

"After the police issued the order (banning PKR defacto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his supporters from Parliament), I know Pakatan Rakyat had issued instructions to pull out. We have lots of evidence to show that whatever they do, they (demonstrations) do interfere with public interest," he said.

In defending the police's action in mounting the roadblocks city-wide, Syed Hamid said police had the responsibility to maintain law and order, and to ensure the safety of those attending parliament are protected, as well as security were not jeopardised.

"We are taking strict, preventive measures to ensure safety and security. We can't wait for things to happen. This is for your own good and safety," he said, adding that the people were fed-up with constant threats of rallies and demonstrations.

How to go to Putrajaya


The idea of establishing a new Federal Government Administrative Centre was first suggested in the 1980's. Throughout the 1990's a new centre was seen through the systematic development in an area located 25 km from Kuala Lumpur.

Putrajaya Diplomatic Enclave has been meticulously planned to fulfill the needs and requirements for quality working and living environment for the diplomatic community.

Pengangkutan Awam Tidak Mesra Pengguna

Pengangkutan awam di Kuala Lumpur dan kawasan sekitar Lembah Klang merangkumi pelbagai jenis pengangkutan seperti rel dan teksi. kerajaan Malaysia telah berbelanja berjuta-juta ringgit untuk meningkatkan mutu dan kesediaadaan pengangkutan awam di Lembah Klang, termasuk membina aliran LRT baru.

Kini, cuma 16 peratus populasi menggunakan pengangkutan awam. Antara punca kadar penggunaan yang rendah ialah para komuter mendapati mutu perkhidmatan rendah.

Perjalanan antara bandar bagi perjalanan antarabandar, hab transit utama di Kuala Lumpur ialah:

  • Puduraya — terminal bas antarabandar utama yang terletak di pusat bandar raya. Terminal bas baru, Plaza Rakyat dirancangkan untuk menggantikan Puduraya yang berdekatan dan pembinaannya sedang dijalankan. Terdapat stesen LRT berdekatan yang dihubungkan dengan Plaza Rakyat.

  • Terminal Bas Putra — menyediakan khidmat untuk bas yang menuju ke destinasi Pantai Timur. Hubungan rel berdekatan terletak di PWTC LRT dan Putra Komuter.

  • KL Sentral — stesen kereta api utama Kuala Lumpur.

  • Terminal Bas Duta — untuk bas Transnasional dan Airport Coach (perkhidmatan bas ke KLIA)

Pengangkutan Awam Tidak Mesra Pengguna

Sistem pengangkutan awam di negara ini masih di tahap sederhana dan tidak mesra pengguna kerana perkhidmatannya tidak menyeluruh serta jarak di antara satu stesen dengan stesen lain terlalu jauh.Pensyarah Pusat Pengajian Pengangkutan Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Prof. Madya Sabariah Jemali berkata, perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam terutamanya bas dan sistem transit aliran ringan masih tidak efisien untuk menarik penumpang sedia ada dan penumpang baru.

Masalah tersebut berlaku katanya, berpunca daripada sistem yang tidak komprehensif dan bersepadu antara satu sama lain iaitu titik sambungan antara satu perkhidmatan dengan perkhidmatan lain yang terlalu jauh.Para pengguna juga sukar mendapat maklumat mengenai perjalanannya melainkan bertanya dengan orang lain. Beliau menyarankan supaya para pengguna diberi maklumat ringkas, jelas dan tepat mengenai destinasi seterusnya melalui paparan jadual waktu perjalanan setiap perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam yang disediakan.

PENDAPAT PENGGUNA
Seorang pengguna LRT telah menyuarakan pendapatnya mengenai LRT di dalam keluaran Utusan Malaysia bertarikh 29 November 2000 mengatakan bahawa pihak yang bertanggungjawab seharusnya mengutamakan kepentingan dan keselesaan pengguna sebagai teras dalam membuat keputusan dan bukannya memihak kepada syarikat pengangkutan awam yang hanya memikirkan keuntungan mereka sendiri sahaja.

Ada juga pengguna yang mengeluh kerana stesen LRT yang berbeza mempunyai ketinggian yang berbeza terutama di antara stesen LRT-PUTRA dan stesen LRT-STAR. Ada juga stesen LRT yang tidak mempunyai lif manakala ada stesen yang dibina dengan terlalu banyak anak tangga yang perlu didaki oleh pengguna seperti di Stesen Masjed Jamek.

Rayu bina hentian teksi

“Setiap hari kami berdepan situasi ibarat tikus dan kucing kerana bila penguat kuasa datang, kami kena lari. Tetapi demi keluarga, kami perlu melakukannya,” kata Haruun Mat Diah, 46, mengenai nasib pemandu teksi berdepan risiko disaman setiap hari oleh pihak berkuasa.

Haruun yang menetap di Puchong, berkata mereka berdepan risiko itu berikutan Majlis Perbandaran Sepang (MPSp), tidak menyediakan kemudahan hentian teksi di kawasan tumpuan pengguna seperti di depan Universiti LimKokWing dan Universiti Multimedia Malaysia.

“Kira-kira 70 pemandu teksi di sini terpaksa beredar dari kawasan berkenaan apabila penguat kuasa Majlis Perbandaran Sepang (MPSp), polis dan Lembaga Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) melakukan pemeriksaan kerana jika tak kami akan disaman.

“Mereka (MPSp), hanya menyediakan hentian teksi di Street Mall, tetapi tiada hentian teksi dibina di tempat lain sedangkan permintaan menggunakan teksi amat tinggi di sini khususnya di kalangan pelajar dan pekerja,” katanya.

Menurutnya, sebagai pemandu teksi, mereka sudah pasti memberi tumpuan di kedua-dua kawasan itu, tetapi berdepan masalah meletakkan teksi mereka sementara menanti penumpang.

Katanya, sama ada mahu atau tak, pemandu teksi terpaksa meletakkan teksi di tepi jalan kerana tiada tempat khusus berbuat demikian.

“Tetapi, masalahnya apabila kami berbuat begitu, pihak berkuasa menyaman kami,” katanya.

Seorang lagi pemandu teksi yang beroperasi di Cyberjaya, C Paramjothy, 44, juga dari Puchong, berkata dia sudah tiga kali disaman sejak awal tahun ini apabila beroperasi di kawasan berkenaan.

“Sebagai pemandu teksi, pendapatan kami bukannya tinggi sangat dan jika selalu disaman, apa yang tinggal untuk kami menyara keluarga,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Setiausaha Koperasi Pengangkutan Awam Putrajaya Berhad, Mohd Salleh Mat Zin berkata, pihaknya merayu MPSp menyediakan kemudahan hentian teksi di kawasan tumpuan di Cyberjaya.

“Kami sudah membuat permohonan kepada mereka menyediakan hentian teksi di beberapa kawasan seperti di depan Universiti Lim Kok Wing dan Universiti Multimedia Malaysia, tetapi hingga kini mereka (MPSp), belum memberi sebarang keputusan.

“Di kedua-dua kawasan ini saja terdapat kira-kira 20,000 pelajar, manakala terdapat lebih 30,000 penduduk di Cyberjaya yang memerlukan perkhidmatan awam,” katanya.

Bus fares to get half-yearly reviews

Bus fares will be reviewed every six months, instead of once every few years. Commercial Vehicle and Licensing Board director Naimah Ramli said this was decided at the Cabinet Committee on Public Transportation meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak last month.“This does not mean that fares will go up every six months. The Government will just review the fares, and decide if there should be a hike or to maintain the rates,” she said.Deputy Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said the Government would decide whether to raise or maintain the fares for public transportation after a research paper is presented to the Cabinet.“We have done a survey over the past year to look at the contributing factors (to rising public transportation costs). We cannot simply announce a new pricing table overnight,” he told reporters.

Asked when the paper would be tabled to the Cabinet, he said they would “try to present it by the end of this month”.On a question whether it was fair to prevent companies from raising their fares when their cost of operations had shot up, Saifuddin advised operators to be patient and to follow the approved fares set by the Government.On cases of bus tickets being sold above the approved price, he said 41 bus permits had been forfeited between June 6 and 8 for various offences committed.

Meanwhile, Konsortium Transnasional Bhd managing director Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh said that unless the Government allows a huge increase in fares, the industry might fall into a state of anarchy.At the last review in May 2005, the rate of subsidised diesel was 71 sen per litre. "The subsidised rate now is RM1.43, which is a 100% increase.This has translated to my company incurring additional expenses of RM35mil a year. For the first time, my company is in the red,” he said.

Nadzmi said although they receive subsidised diesel at full quota, they needed “at least a 60% fare increase to break even or incur just a small loss”.He added that the bus fare in Indonesia at eight sen a km was higher than Malaysia’s, which is 6.5 sen per km.He said unless a significant increase was approved, operators would stop following the law to survive.“You can put 100 enforcement officers today. Can you do the same everyday?” said Nadzmi.Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association (PMBOA) president Datuk Ashfar Ali concurred with Nadzmi, saying that diesel constituted about 30% of operational costs.“The subsidised rate has gone up, but our fares have not. Our drivers get annual increments, while the cost of spare parts and labour has also gone up,” he said.

Rebates for vehicle owners from Saturday

Those who renewed their road tax in April and May and are eligible for cash rebates can get the payment from all post offices beginning Saturday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said although the Government had announced that cash rebates could only be collected beginning July 1, it had decided to bring forward the date.

“This is because we want to ease the burden of the rakyat. Detailed information on the actual procedure will be announced soon,” he told reporters after chairing the first National Inflation Council meeting at his office here yesterday.

On June 4, Abdullah had announced the new fuel price of RM2.70 a litre for petrol and RM2.58 a litre for diesel.

In line with this, private vehicles of engine capacity of 2,000cc and below will enjoy a RM625 rebate, which will be paid to them upon renewal of their road tax.

Private pickup trucks and jeeps with engine capacity of 2,500cc and below will also receive the rebate. Owners of motorcycles of 250cc and below are eligible for a RM150 rebate.

Abdullah said the meeting had also decided to increase the quota of subsidised diesel that public transport companies could buy.

“The companies have been given fleet cards to continue buying diesel at the old price of RM1.43 a litre. We have also agreed to expand the list of vehicles eligible for diesel subsidy to include factory buses and taxis using petrol.

“We are also extending the coverage of our social safety net by considering the increase of several allowances.

“The threshold of income will be raised so more Malaysians can benefit,” he said, adding that more announcements would follow.

Asked if the price of fuel would remain until next March, Abdullah replied that crude oil prices in the global market were rising too quickly.

“There are so many things we have to consider so I don’t think I will say anything now,” he said.

Subsidi RapidKL ditarik balik

UTUSAN ONLINE 29/05/2008

KUALA LUMPUR 28 Mei - Kerajaan menarik balik subsidi yang diberikan kepada RapidKL berkuatkuasa serta merta, kata Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Timbalan Perdana Menteri berkata, perkara itu diputuskan pada mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Kabinet Mengenai Pengangkutan Awam ekoran RapidKL menggunakan subsidi untuk tujuan perang harga dengan syarikat lain.

Tegasnya, tindakan itu diambil meman dangkan rungutan pengusaha pengangkutan awam yang bukan sahaja terjejas teruk malahan ada yang mungkin muflis berikutan perang harga dengan RapidKL.

Najib memberitahu, akan terdapat perubahan dalam tambang RapidKL apabila subsidi itu ditarik balik tetapi ia adalah kecil....


Tambang ialah punca kemerosotan kualiti perkhidmatan bas dalam bandar dan bas antara bandar di negara ini. Pihak pengusaha bas mengharapkan tambang yang tinggi, sebaliknya penumpang hanya sedia membayar tambang yang rendah kerana mereka ialah golongan kurang mampu, malah kalau boleh mereka ingin tambang kekal rendah buat selama-lamanya

Hentian Puduraya

Puduraya dirasmikan Perdana Menteri Malaysia ketiga, Tun Hussein Onn pada 2 Oktober 1976. Sekarang, sebanyak 90 buah syarikat bas beroperasi di sini di samping perkhidmatan teksi ke Pantai Timur, utara dan selatan tanah air.

Menurut Penolong Pengurus Pengurusan Harta UDA Mall Sdn. Bhd., Ismail Hassan, agensi yang bertanggungjawab menyelia stesen itu, Puduraya dahulunya dipercayai sebuah landasan kereta api.

Ia kemudian dibina di atas tanah seluas 1.2 hektar dan terletak 3.5 meter di bawah jalan besar bagi memusatkan semua bas yang beroperasi di Kuala Lumpur di bawah satu bumbung.


Keluasan Puduraya meliputi 52,583 meter persegi dan kekal dengan 24 platform bas. Ia juga dibuka dari pukul 7 pagi hingga 12 malam.

"Kerana kesibukan itu, Stesen Bas Jalan Duta dibina bagi perjalanan ke utara dan Stesen Putra untuk ke Pantai Timur selain Puduraya sendiri yang dikhususkan untuk ke selatan.
