I read some of the answers here, and respectfully disagree with them. I feel in this sinkhole of smog we don't use public transport for a couple of reasons. But mainly because it is the least efficient. ONE. Rail does not make money. It is a service most governments provide to the public as part of their mandate. It is not supposed to make money. But here in Malaysia, whatever can be privatized to make money short term or monetized to provide income is done so. SO our Rail services depend on COMMERCIAL demand. RIght here on Quora, someone explained that the Japanese kept a rail line open so a girl could finish her high school. ONE SINGLE GIRL. The idea of service is lost on a ketuanan government. TWO Licensing, to give you a simple example, is a money-making venture for the government. That is why you pay yearly for it when it is lifetime in Singapore and Thailand. Your government is cheating you. Your unit trust approved service rates. Your car loan shenanigan calculation. Your housing loan dingbat interest mechanisms. All show heavy-handed crony company government approval. With that kind of oversight, seriously, what kind of service focus are you expecting from KTM, Star, LRT, MRT, etc? IF they were serious, they would all use the same ticket mechanism and at least meet in one place. Just ask around and see if a particular someone will forever make money from PLUS going to the airport since they are not using rail. I kid you not. THREE CARS. Let's face it. The Government wants you to buy CARS. And USE PETROL. That is why you don't see tiny little Toyota cars and MPV and SUVs with diesel engines. Diesel is totally imported and Petronas doesn't get a cut. Imported cars are taxed starting at 100%. That means a $50, 000 car is going to cost you $100, 000 without all other taxes and leakages and interest costs piled in. Let's say we make a local equivalent. We cant make it for $50, 000 for sure, we are probably looking at around $60, 000 to $65, 000 per unit. We lack scale, we are not as good, we are not as efficient, etc etc. You think they will sell you that local car at $70, 000? No. They will sell you that car at $95, 000 because of the imported car price threshold. So, the jams are exactly what the government wants. When you are stuck in a jam, you use up 250% more fuel. You starting to realize now why your government wants to limit the number of years taxis, busses, and private cars can be used for the road? I saw 50-year-old Len Seng buses plying the road in perfect condition. Prasarana built RapidKL buses and trains have about a 5-year lifespan. They want you to buy….. excise duty makes them a lot of money, for which they give you NOTHING. Alhamdulilah…… FOUR Petronas Twin Tower. IF your government is serious about public transport, do you think they would force buildings to provide enough parking instead of paying a fine? (Parking lots are prime real estate). Likewise, with Petronas Twin Tower putting out 20, 000 cars per hour at rush hour, do you think they bothered to solve the issue with roads that can handle it? The fact that they put the TRX monstrosity in an area that has single lane access should tell you if they have a serious focus problem. Look at all the commercial development you know. Doesn't it look like such a wonderful opportunity to create a lifetime income stream for the government because of parking fines and towing and etc? FIVE Maintenance. You want to know if the Government is serious about your needs? Look at four things. Public Toilets. Special Needs and Senior Citizen activities. Health Care. Public Transport. Education. And I am telling you, our Ketuanan politicians, the special privilege people, are more keen to keep their jobs than to do their jobs, Inshallah. But let's stick to transport. How do I know they are not interested in maintaining anything? Simple, there is money to be made buying new stuff. Helicopters. Bulletproof fast Attack ESSCOM boats. Busses. Trains. Trucks. Cars. Etc. EVERY 5 years or so. A good example to show why they are not maintenance centric is RapikKL Feeder busses. They come in 11 and 9-meter lengths…thereabouts. By right if you are buying a fleet for the whole country you would want to choose a solid brand with both models, whose principal is willing to train your trainers, set up a service center in your facility, stock it in parts, indent of course. etc etc. Make sense? What DID BN do? 200 buses from Man. 200 buses from Volvo. 200 buses from Daewoo, if I remember correctly.. and 200 buses with a KingLoong frame, Yuchai Engine, and an Allison Transmission…. etc etc. Can you imagine being the fleet manager? SIX Penalties On Single Passenger Cars entering high traffic areas. Big shots with motorcades. No more Official Car. And pay tax on it like the benefit that it is. As for density charges on roads, Touch and Go can settle this. Lower Road tax. Charge a congestion charge. PLAN decent logistics. It is not difficult. It just takes political will. We live in a country where every year we have a drought. We have fire. We have haze. We have floods. And every year we sit on our arse wondering what we should do. If we can see Covered Bike Lanes that run under overhead highways. Pedestrian facilities like rest areas/washrooms/showers. Kiss and Go parking for those biking into town, free buses for out of towners who park in the city fringe. The list goes on. SEVEN Tax-Free Motorcycles. Those little CupChai things we ride? They aren't bikes. They are mopeds. Bikes under 500cc should be tax-free for those who have no cars. Imagine a welder living in Kajang and working in Rawang. The Cupchai will last 2 years. And with more bikes ( Without 2T engines) we have higher capacity for areas not accessible by bus. Ditto electric skateboards, scooters, bicycles and bikes, ATVs…… plus the amenities to handle them. Companies can offer incentives to public transport staff or arrange ride-sharing. EIGHT Backups. How difficult is this? I see 70-year-old men in bars with a backup wife. Why can't we have a decent amount of backup vehicles in rail and on the road? Why is it when a bus or train breaks down, we have to wait for the next scheduled run? Have any of you seen how it works just south of our ketuanan principles in Singapore? IF Air Asia worked like public transport in Malaysia, it would end up like Rayani Air. And those are the reasons I think people don't use public transport. finally, a public service message for those who can lower our enjoyment of public transport drastically, those mentioned before notwithstanding.
