Earlier this month, Transport Minister Anthony Loke went on a spot check at the Kelana Jaya LRT station to personally experience the frustrations commuters had to endure on a daily basis.
Following that trip, he came up with several improvements to be made and managed to get the railway operator to commit itself to such improvements.
Meanwhile, it appears that Anthony is setting his eyes on the services by KTM Komuter, as well as the city’s main public transport hub — the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS).
In a Facebook post, Anthony said he paid a visit to the KTM Komuter and to check the Southern Integrated Terminal (TBS) yesterday (15 December) and brought only two of his assistants along.
Similarly, he went incognito with a black mask and cap to hide his identity.
“I have received a lot of feedback from social media regarding the Komuter service and the issues regarding the Bus Entry Pass at TBS,” he said.
“I will be meeting with KTMB’s (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd) management in the near future to discuss with them ways to improve and increase the frequency of the Komuter service.”
Meanwhile, Anthony share that he noted that the KTMB management is facing all sorts of operational issues and problems brought about by the incomplete KVDT1 track upgrade project and disruptions to the KVDT2 project.
He added that he will be meeting with the management of TBS to discuss the surge of passengers during weekends and festive periods.
