Users of public transport in Greater Kuala Lumpur are expressing higher levels of satisfaction, based on the results of the latest poll by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD).

The survey, which compared satis­faction levels in 2016 versus 2015, was conducted by an independent party which polled 2,198 persons at nine points in the Klang Valley, with two-thirds (1,516) being public transport users while the remaining 682 were not.

And among those who had never used public transport before, a higher percentage (78% in 2016) said they would consider it, up from 67% in 2015.

The percentage of users who said they were “satisfied” (a continuum ranging from extremely satisfied to just satisfied) jumped from 74% in 2015 to 84%.

“The overall rise in satisfaction score was mainly led by the extension of the LRT lines as well as convenience of taxi and car-hailing usage due to e-hailing apps,” said SPAD CEO Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah during a media briefing.

He said the top reasons for public transport use, especially rail, were to avoid parking hassles and congestion during peak hours.

“Taxis were used to avoid parking issues while bus users mainly used it since it was cheaper than other modes,” he added.

The improvement in ridership came from the completion of the LRT Extension Programme by Pra­sarana Malaysia Bhd, which joined the Sri Petaling and Kelana Jaya LRT lines at Putra Heights in June 2016, other than providing integration points with KTM Komuter (at Subang Jaya) and the Sunway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network (at USJ7).

The most recent data from Prasa­rana subsidiary Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd showed even better news, with ri­­dership of the Kelana Jaya line climbing 26% in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period last year, where it recorded a daily average of 209,761 passengers.

For the Ampang/Sri Petaling line, ridership rose by 13%, from a base of 158,671 for the corresponding period.

Even the ridership for the Sunway BRT doubled from around 3,000 to nearly 6,000 a day, said Azharuddin.
This service, which started in June 2015, had been criticised by commuters who found its fares prohibitive.

For the poll, the only bad news came from KTM Komuter as train availability during off-peak hours suffered drastically due to the rehabilitation of 42km of tracks, and the upgrading of the signalling and electrification system that will only be finished in 2019.

Azharuddin said all the investments on rail and bus were showing positive results.

The total daily rail ridership in the Klang Valley was around 650,000, an all-time high, and this number was not boosted by the many tourists or holidaymakers, as only 6% of those polled said they were on holiday.
