TRANSIT took note of this interesting article outlining a proposed 4th Integrated Transport Terminal to be built at the interchange of KTM Komuter and RapidKL LRT services at Subang Jaya.
The proposed 4th ITT will have space for stage buses and taxi bays, but there is no information about space for Intercity and Express buses.
You may recall TRANSIT’s own recent proposal to build a fully integrated transport terminal at Shah Alam’s stadium area. The proposed Subang Jaya ITT would be part of the Sime Darby Subang Jaya City Centre development.
Easier access to LRT and KTM stations with new terminal (Malay Mail, 3 May 2011)

SUBANG JAYA: Residents of Subang Jaya, USJ Subang and Sunway can expect improvement in public transport with the building of an Integrated Transport Terminal (ITT ) in Subang Jaya to support the LRT Kelana Jaya line extension project.
Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) town planning director Yunos Kashib told The Malay Mail the ITT would integrate the LRT and KTM Subang commuter stations.
“The proposed transport hub is a joint venture between Sime Darby Property Bhd and Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad as the asset owner of the LRT station,” he said.
“MPSJ has received the plan from Sime Darby Property and is waiting for the Traffic Impact Assessment report before it can provide them with full approval.”
[TRANSIT: Knowing what we know of the area, and an earlier Traffic Impact Assessment – not to mention the area’s councillors and RA – it is not going to be easy to get approval for the ITT at that location.]
Yunos said the ITT would augur well for the improvement of public transport in Subang Jaya and the surrounding residential and commercial areas.
“The ITT is part of the upcoming Subang Jaya City Centre (SJCC) by Sime Darby Property,” he said.
“A Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) sub-station that currently occupies four acres at the proposed site will be relocated and a land strip adjacent to the KTM Komuter station and the railway tracks will be transformed into a mixed development site.”
He said no time-frame had been given for the ITT and SJCC to take off.
“There will be several skybridges at the SJCC and the public can have easy access to the LRT and KTM stations and other buildings without having to venture onto the roads.”
It is learnt the ITT would include facilities for bus and taxi parking bays as well as drop-off area for private vehicles.
Also, to accommodate free flow of traffic at the integrated rail stations, RapidKL feeder and stage buses, taxis and private vehicles would only be allowed to disembark passengers at the transport hub.
The ITT would also provide park-and-ride facilities for commuters who wish to park their vehicles before taking the LRT or KTM trains.
Main features of the ITT
- Feeder and inter-city stage bus and taxi bays
- Connected to LRT and KTM stations via skybridge
- Drop-off area for LRT and KTM passengers
- Part of Subang Jaya City Centre
Interesting. More comments to come.
