Keretapi Tidak Maju - KTM

I remember that the first time i used the KTM train service was soemtime around Form 2-3 where i'll head to the city center with some of my friends during the weekend to some malls. Mid Valley in most cases.

Back then, it was quite annoying that they'll always announce that there's this technical error/failure and the train will be late all the time thus making the waiting time to be extremely long.

It is one of the most painful time when you're waiting for the train at KTM stations knowing you have stuffs to do and need to head to the destination asap before a certain time and suddenly there's this announcement saying that the train will be late for 45 minutes.

Taking such public transport prove to be a pain in my ass throughout my college life. I have to bare with it because i have no choice at all being not lucky enough to be like other youths who got a free car to drive straight after they get their license.

and so its been quite some time already since i last take a public transport, specifically one whole year for KTM trains. Just last week, i took the KTM train again and...

It appears that their service remain unchanged with no improvement at all.

Trains arrives late and the interval between each train is very long. Like 30 minutes.
Trains will stop somewhere in the middle of the track all of a sudden for like 20-40 minutes. Sudden Randomness.


and the government encourages people to take more public transport. How? Tell me la HOW!

the best thing of all is i have to go through all this KTM train shit all over again when i start working. Gah. and i have yet mentioning that i have to deal with the RapidKL buses as well!! ROAR!!!

Why can't KTM trains be like LRT trains where the interval between trains are like 5 minutes only?

KTM runs on the main railway lane, together with main trains from Hat Yai all the way to Singapore.. impossible to have trains within 5 minutes interval la.. lol

LRT is possible because they have their dedicated railway lane for themselves..

but yeah, it always tak maju la.. tsk tsk tsk.. =P
