Boosting the Connectivity of Existing Bus Services

image

The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) initiative aims to further boost the connectivity of the existing bus services as well as expedite bus travel for commuters. Designed as a specialised form of a bus priority system, the BRT meets passengers' demand by incorporating various aspects of mass transit into its infrastructure. For instance, designated lanes on the roads separate buses from other modes of transport, and these lanes are then serviced by bus-specific stations which are placed along its route.

Twelve BRT Corridors have been identified within the overall BRT Plan. The first Corridor to be completed was the BRT Sunway Line which began operations in 2015. The Sunway Line runs 5.4 kilometres long through seven stations, each located strategically at key destinations and attractions in the Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya areas. For better integration between public transportation modes, the BRT Sunway Line also links with the KTM Komuter Service at the Sunway-Setia Jaya Station, and will connect to the LRT via the Kelana Jaya Line once the extension of the line to USJ 7 has been completed in June 2016.

The BRT Sunway Line is currently served by 15 electric buses, with a frequency of 4 minutes for weekdays during peak hours and 8 minutes for weekdays during non-peak hours. On public holidays and weekends, the service operates with a frequency of 6 minutes. Fares start from RM 1.60 and have a maximum charge of RM 5.40 per trip.
