4. Developing the Plan - SPAD

7.2.2) RidershipThe enhancement to KTM by making the most of the existing rail network and the provisionof the new MRT lines, provide greater radial capacity. The URDP is forecast to lead to 2.5Xincreased ridership on the KTM services (through reduced waiting time, improved reliability,faster journey to KL). The URDP will lead to increased ridership of 2X on the LRT andMonorail services where they are expected to support more local demand with increasecapacity and line extensions. Ridership levels on rail will increase 5 fold to increase PTmodal share, particularly to the centre of KL. The additional capacity provides isequivalent to 48,000 cars (or 12 lanes of traffic flow) during the peak hour by 2020 due toMRT1, MRT2 and MRT3 service.Improvements to bus services will also increase ridership, although a number of thesejourneys will be on feeder services to the main rail network.7.2.3) Mode ShareAn initial forecast of the overall mode share within the region has been undertaken usingthe Greater KL/ KV Transport Model (see Figure 7.1). This provides forecasts for themorning peak assessing the behavioural travel changes associated with the LPTMP measuresincluding all the elements of the Subsidiary Plans allowing for assumptions related to feedernetworks and the provision of TOD‟s. The plan has also been assessed with/ without RoadUser Charging (RUC) as this is a major policy step. This shows that a regional target of over40% can be achieved if all the elements including the land use policy instruments areincluded. For travel to/from and within the MRR1 a much higher mode share is forecast.Page 71
