Default BMW's Metro Rail for Kuala Lumpur

Hi all, Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley region around it are home to around 4 million people. To prepare for the upcoming urban transit problems and enhance the appeal of this fast growing region, Kuala Lumpur will rely on the metro trains.

Some pics for all of you:

KL already has two LRT (metro) lines

1. Kelana Jaya (KJ ) line which has driverless trains of 2/4 carriages made by Bombardier

2. Ampang / Sri Petaling line -(the older one - with driver-make not known )

There is an extension of the lines going on - is this line going to get the BMW trains?

Off topic- KL has one of the best connectivity as far as trains / LRT is concerned

- Both, the Ampang line (From Sri Petaling side) and the Kelana Jaya Line(from Kelana Jaya side) are getting extended. Refer this website for details: http://www.lrtextension.com/top-head...ss-and-updates.
The new trains are for the upcoming MRT project. See this:http://www.mymrt.com.my/

Yes, the Ampang line, KJ line, and even the monorail have good connectivity at least during the week-days. I am a regular user of the Ampang line, and during peak hours, I find a train running every 2 minutes, one behind the other. KTM Komuter is also efficient, but the time interval between trains varies from 10 mins to 30 minutes.

UPDATE

It is stated that when the 58 driverless trains will be in service the frequency of one train will be every 3.5 minutes during peak hours. With a spacious layout each four-car trainset will have a capacity of 1.200 passengers improving the daily ridership target of the operator. The train design also takes into consideration the needs of disabled people: Six specific areas in each train are equipped with hand-rails which offer sufficient space to allow wheelchair-bound passengers to be seated in their rides. The doors will emit a beeping sound and light to guide disabled passengers when the train doors are closing and opening.
