Editor’s NoteThis blog post is written by a non-TRANSIT member, but we’ve asked for Aliff’s permission to re-post this on our website, considering the recent RapidKL termination announcement of bus routes by December.

Sempena perjalanan Bancian Penduduk dan Perumahan Malaysia 2020 (Banci 2020) yang akan berlangsung antara 7 Julai dan 30 September, TRANSIT Malaysia ingin menggesa kerajaan untuk komited bagi memastikan hasil dari bancian dapat dimanfaatkan oleh rakyat marhaen melalui data terbuka atau ‘open data’.

For about two hours, hostlers (those people who were manually driving your trains this morning) and Prasarana staff were scrambling to manage the influx of people coming into the Kelana Jaya […]
The Malaysian Urban Forum is happening today and tomorrow! Also, we’ve started working to bring Transit Malaysia back online.

TRANSIT took note of the following article describing legal issues that will delay the approval of the Kinrara-Damansara Expressway. Apparently the company that will build the expressway and has received ‘conditional approval’ from the Works Ministry and support from Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim, has failed to get approval from the Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya…in […]
