Public Transportation Companies Have Been Criticised For Having “Third-Class Maintenance”

PETALING JAYA – A transport consultant has said that the companies in charge of the public transportation systems in the country are not doing their jobs.

Rosli Azli Khan said that the companies in charge of public transportation were still not doing their jobs, even though the government had a clear plan to get people out of their own cars and onto buses and trains more.

“The infrastructure and facilities of public transportation are not well taken care of. He told FMT, “Perhaps we hired the wrong group of people who don’t have the technical skills to run and maintain these outfits so they can provide the best level of service needed.”

He said he agreed with Malaysia’s transport minister Loke Siew Fook, who said yesterday that Malaysia has “first-class” public transportation, but that it is “third-class” in terms of how it is kept up. Loke said this because the Kelana Jaya LRT line has been having a lot of trouble lately.

Rosli said that a lot of money had been set aside for public transportation facilities and infrastructure, and that the government was investing in the best technology to get more people to use bus and train services.

He called out the rail company Prasarana Malaysia Bhd for not doing enough to encourage people to use public transportation. He asked the company’s top managers to leave and be replaced by a group that supported the government’s policies and goals to reduce the number of people who drive their own cars.

Goh Bok Yen, another transport consultant, said that maintaining public transportation systems required skilled engineers and technicians who knew the systems inside and out.

“The maintenance staff can’t get too comfortable and stop keeping up with changes in the systems. We also need to make sure that engineers and technicians get the right training,” he said.

Goh said that this would make it easier for the maintenance team to make sure that the public transportation system would last and work at its best.
