RapidPenang does indeed look like a success. There were many people waiting at the terminal at Komtar as well as at the bus stops. These looked like a good mix of locals as well, unlike in Kuala Lumpur where most of bus riders are foreign workers, with a spattering of local executives and students.

Also the staff at the terminal were helpful and alert and people didn't seem to have to wait excruciatingly long for a bus to arrive.

Another thing we in the Klang Valley could learn from a RapidPenang bus: photo identification of your bus driver to avoid loutish bullying behaviour.

After several grouses raised on current Penang bus operators being irredeemable, latest news is that Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon has suggested that Penang's bus system may be revamped to be modelled according to Kuala Lumpur's.

See article in The Star.

Whether he means the system of Trunk Lines, Local Feeders and City Shuttles, or whether he means the institutional reform that founded RapidKL, was not specified.

As soon as I stepped into our office on the morning of Wednesday, August 9, 2006, the Project Manager for the Klang Valley Public Transportation Information System announced that disgruntled bus passengers in Penang were staging a peaceful demonstration on Friday, August 11, 2006. She’d just read about it in Penang’s grassroots activism website, www.penangwatch.net. Guess what, I was assigned to cover this event and build contacts with transit activists in and around Penang!

Before I reported for work the next morning, I went to KL Sentral to purchase a train ticket to Bukit Mertajam, and went straight to this futuristic railway station right after work on Thursday evening. Armed with a take-away dinner pack, I found my seat on the north-bound Langkawi Express.
