Gombak integrated transport terminal
Gombak integrated transport terminal (ITT) has been revived and will open early next year, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.
"Based on current plans, ITT seeks to dissolve the 780 north and east-bound bus that is placed in the center of the city and ease traffic congestion," said Ong, a journalist at the conference after visiting the location of the terminal in Jakarta on Tuesday.

He said ITT will be managed and designed and operated to meet the needs of inter-modal and has a capacity for 4,000 daily bus passengers. "It will be deleted-friendly and will offer to turn over 20 minutes of time," he said, adding the terminal will be renamed East Integrated Terminal (Terminal Integrated East). Ong also said the terminal would encourage people to use the facilities 'park-and-ride'.

RM200mil terminal development is expected to be funded beginning in June, after the bidder winner was announced. Terminal will be built in two phases on a parcel of 13.35ha of land a stone throw from the terminal at the Putra LRT Gombak.
