1. Letter(s): Make them pay for it / Bus lanes not fully utilised (Malay Mail, 21 July 2011) – two letters complaining about bus lanes and buses & taxis that drop off passengers in live lanes.

DANGEROUS: Buses and taxis stopping in the middle of the road pose a danger not only to their passengers but to other motorists as well. RapidKL, please note your accessible bus (V063) is stopped wrongly. Hopefully this isn't a recent picture

2. Video: KVMRT / MyRapidTransit has posted a series of videos on YouTube showing impressions of new MRT stations. You can see the videos at the KVMRT YouTube Channel.

This particular video is for Bukit Bintang Central (not Sentral) station:

One reply on “Updates #95”

Good to see some improved integration points compared to the initial proposal.
Just curious though on the need for an overhead link at BB Central station. The video shows some sort of an underground entrance right to the west of the monorail station. If so, a more direct link between the two stations could have been possible.
