Figure 2.2: Existing Public Transport Network (Source: Halcrow)Rail capacity is struggling to meet current passenger demands and as a result initiativeswere developed as part of the NKRA to increase the number of car sets for LRT1, Monorailand KTM Komuter. However, as will be identified in the next chapter, looking to thefuture this capacity will not be sufficient to serve the key centres and furtherenhancement is required.2.3.2) Existing Bus ServicesThe current methods and standards of operation of busservices in the GKL/KV region results in severe servicequality, reliability and delivery issues. The existingdelivery of services, perceived lack of integrated orcomprehensive bus planning, unpublished timetables,uncoordinated services and distinct lack ofenforcement of operating rules indicates that theservices are failing to meet the needs of GKL/KV andthere is currently a general lack of effective regulationand enforcement in the bus industry. These issuesrequire to be addressed through a new regime thatmatches improved service delivery with bus networkplanning that addresses land use changes, therelationship between bus services and the other public transport modes in the hierarchyand is controlled through an improved regulatory framework. This will ensure betterintegration in order to meet the needs of present users and ensure that services becomeattractive to a wider range of potential users.Page 13
