KTMB e-Ticket Payment via Maybank2u

KTM Berhad (KTMB) has recently enabled passengers to pay for their e-Ticket booking via online banking portal, Maybank2u.

The addition of Maybank2u as the alternative payment method (the other only available payment method is by VISA/Mastercard credit/debit card) is seen to be more secure because users will need to log on to their online banking account and providing Transaction Authorization Code (TAC) for the transaction, on top of the usual username and password combination.

There is no booking fee charged for KTMB e-Ticket booking via this payment method. I have personally tried to use the Maybank2u payment method for my KTM Intercity ticket purchase and it worked perfectly.

For those who are booking their tickets, I would recommend to use Internet Explorer as your browser to ensure maximum compatibility.

Of note, after booking, there is no need to print the KTM Intercity e-Ticket. You can simply show your e-Ticket on your phone/tablet screen to the ticket inspector.

Other than KTM Intercity, e-Ticket is also available for ETS trains.

Kelana Jaya Line LRT Power Outage: TNB-RapidKL Blame Game

September 19th 2014 – A brief power outage has occured on 1:50 PM in some stations along Kelana Jaya line, causing commuters to be stranded at the stations as the crowd begin to swell as peak travel time draws near. According to statements made by RapidKL, the route between Masjid Jamek and Gombak station was affected by the outage. Fortunately, on 4:01 PM, power has been restored, just in time before workers find their way back home.

Although Kelana Jaya Line now has been equipped with new four-coach trains, congestion during peak periods is still a norm. It is not as bad as KL Monorail though.

During power outage, shuttle buses are being provided by RapidKL. However, the signage is not clear enough, with most of the instructions only comes from twitter.

Inter-service communication was smooth as we can see some notice put up via electronic display at Imbi KL Monorail station. However, when the service backs to normal, the signage was not updated promptly. This may cause confusion to commuters.

Translation: Kelana Jaya LRT service is fully functioning again. Any inconvenience caused are deeply regretted.

The Blame Game – RapidKL says:

On 1:50 PM, RapidKL announced the delay of Kelana Jaya Line, without mentioning specific reason of service delay.

Translation: KJ Line Update: We are having technical problems. Delays in schedule are expected.

Six minutes later they announced it was due to power fault between Masjid Jamek and Gombak.

Translation: KJ Line Update: 1350 hrs We are having power supply problems. Restoration work is being carried out.

About an hour later, they said it is because of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB):

Translation: KJ Line Update: 1450hrs Kelana Jaya LRT service is still disrupted due to power supply interruption by TNB.

They even made a direct mention to TNB official twitter account, probably inducing commuters to address their complaints to TNB directly.

The Blame Game – TNB says:

Lets see what TNB has to say, via its corporate communications general manager, Omar Sidek:

“TNB would like to clarify that the stalled LRT services earlier Friday was due to switchgear fault at Rapid KL’s end.”

“We deny news reports that burnt TNB cables caused disruption to the LRT services”

Conclusion

While we cannot find conclusive evidence yet on the occurence, we believe some sort of miscommunication took place. We hope that emergency response team of both agencies will be more prepared for problems like this.

Taktik kotor pemandu teksi mengenakan caj tambahan tersembunyi kepada penumpang

Untuk mengaut keuntungan haram secara berlipat ganda, pelbagai cara digunakan oleh SEGELINTIR pemandu teksi semata-mata untuk mengaut keuntungan tambahan dengan cara memeras duit penumpang, terutamanya yang berada dalam keadaan terdesak.

Taktik #1: Caj tambahan RM 2 pada meter

Menurut sumber (LPKP, dan perkara ini disahkan oleh beberapa orang pemandu teksi), Caj tambahan RM 2 pada meter akan dikenakan apabila anda menelefon nombor teksi tersebut untuk mengambil anda di tempat anda dan menghantar anda.

Macam mana nak kesan caj tambahan ini? Apabila selesai perjalanan, anda akan mendapati harga pada meter tiba-tiba bertambah sebanyak RM 2. Itulah caj panggilan telefon.

Macam mana nak tau anda kena tipu? Apabila anda hanya tahan teksi di tepi jalan, tapi sesudah sampai anda tetap dikenakan caj ini walaupun anda tidak menelefon teksi tersebut.

Taktik #2: Meter yang tidak diset semula selepas menurunkan penumpang

Pemandu teksi akan membiarkan meter tersebut berjalan sewenang-wenangnya. Kemudian mengecaj anda sesuka hatinya.

Cara mengatasi: Pastikan meter anda diset semula kepada harga asas (RM 3) sebelum anda memulakan perjalanan. Suruh pemandu teksi mengresetkan semula meternya.

Taktik #3: Caj tambang mengikut bilangan penumpang

Menurut salah seorang pemandu teksi yang saya temui, beliau dengan bersemangatnya menegaskan bahawa tambang (seperti mana yang tercatat pada meter) adalah untuk caj bagi SEBUAH teksi, tidak bersangkutan dengan jumlah penumpang (1 hingga 4). Oleh itu, sila bertegas dengan pemandu teksi bahawa anda akan membayar dengan harga yang tercatat pada meter, satu harga, satu teksi.

– Taktik-taktik terbaru akan diupdate dalam post ini jika difikirkan relevan.

– Bersama kita mematuhi peraturan yang ditetapkan, terutamanya daripada pihak LPKP.

KTM Komuter: Bilangan Stesen Mesra OKU Akan Ditambah

More KTM Komuter stations to have facilities for the disabled

by CHRISTINA TAN

KUALA LUMPUR: Access for the disabled will be improved in 10 more KTM Komuter stations, at an estimated cost of RM20mil, under the 10th Malaysian Plan.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the Government was determined to ensure sufficient public transportation facilities for the physically-challenged group.

The stations are Kepong, Batu Tiga, Klang, UKM, Bangi, Kuala Lumpur, Tanjung Malim, Putra, Nilai and Padang Jawa.

Upgrades to five stations – Bandar Tasik Selatan, Serdang, Shah Alam, Rawang and Sungai Buloh – were near completion, he added.

A total of RM10mil was allocated under the Ninth Malaysian Plan to build lifts, ramps for wheelchairs, special toilets and parking lots at these five stations, he said.

Ong said the upgrading project was being extended to other public transportations such as airlines and bus services.

“I was also on wheelchair before and I know how they feel and need for the facilities,” he said, after visiting Sungai Buloh and Serendah Komuter stations Thursday.

Meanwhile, Ong said the ministry was also exploring the possibility of modifying existing railway tracks in the country to accommodate high-speed trains.

He said existing tracks, suitable for trains running at not more than 140kph, were too narrow for high-speed trains that could reach between 320kph and 350kph.

Pendapat: Nampaknya kerajaan kita sudah semakin prihatin akan nasib golongan kurang upaya. Hari demi hari, kita pasti mendengar liputan media berkenaan masalah-masalah yang dialami golongan OKU. Baguslah, satu pencapaian yang semakin baik untuk negara kita.

Tidak kisah, siapa yang memerintah. Asalkan minda masyarakat semakin terbuka dan ilmu dalam dada semakin banyak, sudah cukup baik.

Nampaknya juga KTMB semakin mendapat perhatian pihak kerajaan. Saya amat gembira dengan pengkhabaran ini. Harapan saya agar KTMB terus dibantu bagi memastikan kelangsungan nyawanya seiring dengan penyedia perkhidmatan transit yang lain.

Cara Perbaharui Cukai Jalan Motosikal

Apabila cukai jalan (road tax) motosikal anda hampir tamat tempoh, anda perlu mengambil langkah untuk memperbaharuinya. Sebelum memperbaharui cukai jalan, anda perlu memperbaharui insurans/takaful motosikal anda dahulu.

Setelah proses memperbaharui insurans/takaful selesai, anda boleh meneruskan dengan proses memperbaharui cukai jalan. Proses untuk memperbaharui cukai jalan atau juga dikenali dengan istilah “renew roadtax” ini boleh dilakukan dengan beberapa cara, antaranya:

  1. Renew di Pejabat Pos: Sekiranya anda memilih untuk memperbaharui cukai jalan anda di pejabat pos, anda hanya perlu membawa Kad Pengenalan (IC) anda dan juga tahu maklumat berkenaan pemilik kenderaan tersebut dan juga kenderaan yang ingin diperbaharui cukai jalannya. Bayaran tambahan yang dikenakan ialah RM 2.00 sebagai caj upah kepada Pos Malaysia.
  2. Renew di kaunter JPJ: Sekiranya anda memilih untuk memperbaharui cukai jalan anda di kaunter JPJ, anda hanya perlu membawa Kad Pengenalan (IC) anda dan juga tahu maklumat berkenaan pemilik kenderaan tersebut dan juga kenderaan yang ingin diperbaharui cukai jalannya. Tiada bayaran tambahan yang dikenakan jika anda memperbaharui cukai jalan anda di kaunter JPJ.

Nota 1: Walaupun pihak JPJ ada menyediakan perkhidmatan layan diri di kiosk-kiosk seluruh negara, kiosk-kiosk tersebut tidak menyediakan perkhidmatan mencetak cukai jalan motosikal. Untuk tujuan itu anda masih perlu memperbaharui cukai jalan anda di cawangan JPJ berdekatan.

Feasibility study of railroad infrastructure in Borneo?

Our railroad network in peninsular Malaysia has undergone a lot of transformation since the time when it was introduced for the first time in 19th century (Taiping – Kuala Sepetang Line, no longer exists today).

Apart from Electrified Double Tracking Project (EDTP), we have also made significant progress in railroad industry by having our own rolling stock (trainset) assembling plant, operated by CRRC Zhuzhou from China. Apart from job opportunities created, indirectly we are developing our own talents in railroad industry.

(1) The atmosphere is Borneo is a little bit different compared to Peninsular Malaysia. People in Borneo would like to have more autonomy in making decisions for their own state. Landslide victory of Adenan Satem in recent state election has enlightened us on their desire since Adenan is seen as a CM that fights for more autonomy for his people.

(2) Other than having control of their immigration system (it is illegal for non-residents of Sarawak to stay more than 90 days in the state without proper permit), issues were also raised by the CM about non-Sarawakian workforce of a local oil and gas company operating in Sarawak.

What does (1) and (2) has to do with railroad infrastructure? Well, due to (1) and (2), I think it is best if concerned citizens from Sarawak to carry out their own feasibility study of developing railroad infrastructure in the state. In my opinion, railroad enthusiasts from Peninsular will be more than glad to offer any kind of assistance required, subject to restrictions by the democratically-elected state government. Of note, Sabah already has its own railway, owned by its state government.
