4. Developing the Plan - SPAD

2.5) Travel Times and AccessibilityThe net result of increased car use has been a rise in congestion across the region. However doorto door travel times for private vehicles remain competitive against the use of public transport.Travel times are typically much higher by public transport resulting in poorer accessibility to jobsand facilities. For example, Figure 2.4 compares the perceived door to door travel times (andinclude weighted elements of walking times at both the origin and destination, waiting time, invehicletime, and interchange time) to KLCC by car and public transport from all other areas in theregion. Areas shown in blue have the lowest travel times while those in red have the longer traveltimes (the UDRP explains the derivation of these times). The figure shows that travel times by carare typically shorter than by LPT for many journeys in the region. The exception is those corridorscurrently well served by rail such as the LRT corridors.Figure 2.4: Modelled Perceived Travel times to KLCC (Source: Greater KL Transport Model)Travel time to KLCC by LPTTravel time to KLCC by carAccessibility by public transport is an important theme of the LPTMP. This has been mapped fromboth the perspectives of employers and residents across the region. Figure 2.5 shows theAccessibility Indicator from the employer‟s perspective and indicates for any location, the numberof employees within 75 minutes of those jobs by using LPT. The blue areas on the maps are thoseareas with the greatest accessibility and where employers have a much larger pool of labour toattract within 75 minutes. The pink areas are those with much lower attractiveness as they havelower numbers of workers available within their catchment. The diagram has screened out those inwhite which do not have significant employment in them.Page 17
