COVID-19 Movement Control Order: What Do You Need to Know

PUTRAJAYA, 16 March 2020: The Malaysian Government has announced a Movement Control Order, which will be in effect from 18 March 2020 to 31 March 2020.

Departures in and out of the airports are going on as usual (with exceptions to existing restrictions on flight routes such as Wuhan, China) with restrictions being placed on the people travelling rather than the flight itself. More information here.

Can I use Grab and LRT?

The answer is yes. On top of Grab and LRT, you can use all other existing public transport options. Employees for transport service providers are also allowed to continue working as they are categorised as essential services.

COVID-19 Movement Control Order: How International Travellers Are Affected

Malaysians departing out of Malaysia: All Malaysians are barred from exiting the country, regardless of the reasons. The Malaysians working in Singapore are also affected by the ban.

Malaysians returning to Malaysia from overseas: There is no restriction for them.

Foreigners entering Malaysia: All foreigners are barred from entering Malaysia throughout the MCO period, except those who are working in essential services.

Foreigners exiting Malaysia: Foreigners are allowed to exit from Malaysia as long as they are permitted to be onboard airplanes and receive immigration clearance.

Passengers are advised to check with Malaysian Ministry of Health for more information about COVID-19. More information about COVID-19 Movement Control Order can be found on Majlis Keselamatan Negara (National Security Council) Facebook page.

RM 0.50 Touch N Go Reload Fee at RapidKL Counters

We tried to reload our Touch ‘N Go card in late 2019 at a RapidKL counter in KL Sentral Monorail Station. We thought there will be no reload fee imposed to Touch ‘N Go customer. Unfortunately, RapidKL has imposed a reload fee of RM 0.50 to us.

While the government is trying to help its people by not adding to the burden of reloading Touch ‘N Go, some providers are still charging the customers for reload fee. This adds the burden for the customers, especially the ones who are not able to put a huge sum to reload their cards, such as RM 100.00 or RM 200.00 reload amount at once.

Apart from the reloading fee, Touch ‘N Go customers are also at the mercy of the providers when they need to pay extra for certain services. The occurrence is also common at shopping mall car parks. The parking operators are charging up to 10% additional parking fee as “fee for convenience” since the customers are able to pay using their Touch ‘N Go and avoid queuing up at the autopay machines.

The business owners and service providers are always looking for opportunities for them to make extra profits. Therefore, we are not able to blame them at an entirety for this predicament. This is when the government needs to step in and ensure it serves the best interests of the customers.

Vision and Mission of KTM ETS

When KTM ETS service was launched, it was operated by a fully-owned subsidiary of KTM Berhad, ET Sdn Bhd. According to the KTMB Chairman at that time, Dr. Aminuddin Adnan, the establishment of ET as a subsidiary of KTMB can create a more conducive environment, better work culture and discipline and role model to KTMB itself.

While ETS now is being operated directly as one of the services provided by KTMB, we think we still should share some of the details about the company when it was established many years ago. Here are the vision and mission of the subsidiary company:

Vision

Work as partners to make ETS a dominant player in the transportation industry by redefining values in commuting.

Mission

ETS will always engage our partners in all the workings and planning of the company to achieve the maximum contribution from the partners.

We will at all times keep the customer confidence by working at the top of our personal and professional performance levels.

We will do our absolute best to provide each and every customer with only the highest integrity, trust, love, teamwork, fun and energy, smile and innovation in providing the best customer service and timeliness on every trip “ABSOLUTELY”.

Toll-free Highways Not Possible?

  1. Tun Dr. Mahathir has said that it is not possible to have toll-free roads under current government revenue and spending pattern.
  2. If we must commit to Pakatan’s manifesto, then it means the government’s revenue must be increased.
  3. The Prime Minister also said that they did not expect to win the election when they crafted the manifesto.
  4. There are people who believed that the new government can abolish the tolls for expressways. Hence, they voted for the new government.
  5. The new government then realized many of the populist moves spelt out in their manifeso is not feasible and this is not just because of the huge debt left by the previous government. The revenue stream simply cannot sustain their planned spending pattern.
  6. The new government has less than 5 years from now to prove their capability. Otherwise, people may vote them out in the next upcoming General Election.
  7. Many of the expressway development in Malaysia is being undertaken by private entities. This is because of the huge cost involved in building these expressways.
  8. The limited amount of budget allocated for road maintenance can be channelled towards maintaining other Federal or State roads.
  9. Therefore, while having tolls is not a popular move, it helps to improvise the living condition of the urban population by reducing their travel time within the city or between major cities in Malaysia.

The Inevitable Change in Taxi Industry

March 2018 is seen as a month of victory for our Malaysian-born Grab has it has managed to secure a comfortable portion of electronic hailing (e-hailing) market share in Southeast Asia. A deal was struck between Grab and US-born Uber for the latter to cease operating in the Southeast Asia effective 9 April 2018. In return, Uber gets 27.5% stake in Grab. According to Grab’s official website, almost 4 million rides are done on the platform daily. Being a Malaysian-born company, Grab started its operation in Malaysia as MyTeksi in 2012, moved its headquarters to Singapore in 2014 and now it has expanded to more than 142 cities in Southeast Asia.

During its initial days of operation as a car sharing service, many taxi drivers oppose it. We have had numerous protests in the heart of Kuala Lumpur to oppose the e-hailing services. The government and its affiliated agencies were pressured to intervene in order to safeguard the interest of taxi drivers and companies. The situation became worse as the taxi drivers tend to take matters into their own hands. On 28 June 2016, a 35-year old Grab driver was attacked by irate taxi drivers as he was about to pick up a passenger outside the MidValley Megamall. Meanwhile, on 20 June 2016, an Uber driver was attacked at KL Sentral station and one of his passengers was injured as an angry taxi driver dragged them out of the car.

Let us face the reality. In the past, the Malaysian government and private sectors within their respective capacities have tried to improve the system. Exclusive access and waiting areas were assigned to numerous shopping malls, airports and other points of attraction. Besides, NGV, a cheaper vehicle fuel alternative was also introduced to key areas in Malaysia, especially in the Klang Valley area. The government has also demonstrated its commitment to assisting taxi drivers by making NGV more affordable for them. According to Malaysia: Natural Gas Industry Annual Review 2012 report published by Malaysian Gas Association, the Malaysian government has spent almost RM 28 billion in the form of various subsidies for natural gas, NGV included.

Despite the numerous improvement methods, many taxi drivers suffer from an attitude problem. It is common to hear tourists complain about being overcharged and violent driving behaviour of the drivers. On 17 December 2016, Malaysians got a shock of their life when two French tourists were charged RM 800 for a short ride from KLCC to National Mosque. While stern actions have been taken by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) on the said taxi operator, over the years, the overcharging and bad driving practice have shown no signs of abating.

To combat the negative attitudes of the taxi drivers, many solutions were proposed. Fares are regulated, and meter usage was made compulsory for all Klang Valley taxi drivers. Anybody still remembers the mandatory “no haggling” signage on our taxis? Unfortunately, our tourists are able to read that sign and still being overcharged by the taxi drivers. The blatant disregard of the law and guidelines have frequently drive tourists and authorities to the wall but not enough has been done to solve the problem. One The Star reporter had even gone undercover to find how deep the problem is. In one article published on 7 Oct 2012 on the news portal, one shocking finding was revealed: only 1 out of 11 taxi drivers in KL followed the regulated fare.

Years of bad service and the advent of smartphones with GPS technology seems to provide a right recipe for e-hailing. As the smartphones get more advanced and affordable, it has opened up a slew of new possibilities, which includes e-hailing. In the early days of e-hailing, many of the drivers were existing taxi drivers. As the years passed by, more people signed up to drive for e-hailing services, citing money-making opportunities and flexible work arrangements as their primary factors in doing so. Besides, the booking and driver review system have improved the service availability and reliability, thus making it more appealing to the users.

After several years of using Grab, the service is no longer a stranger to us. More people do no longer consider purchasing new cars, especially in the heavily-congested areas. Considering how difficult it was to use a taxi service before, there is no point in going back to the old trend. It is now the time for us to move on and think about possible transport advancements in the future.

MRT Service Disruption: What It Means for Us

Petaling Jaya, September 28th 2017 – MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang  Line (SBK Line) was suspended temporarily after a man ran into the train track area. The shutdown happened on Tuesday evening as commuters are getting back from work.

The inevitable shutdown of train service has to take place due to safety concerns. Other than making sure that the area is safe for trains and passengers, the authorities also need to suspend the MRT service in order to catch the intruder. Fortunately, the police have managed to apprehend the intruder. However, his identity and motive remained undisclosed.

While commuters may be angry due to the unscheduled service suspension, we need to keep in mind that this is done with passengers’ safety in mind. The person may not be in his right state of mind, or he can possibly have malicious intent.

History has shown how much unprepared we were during times of emergency. In the aviation industry, everyone can learn from MH 370 incident when a commercial aeroplane which was supposed to leave our airspace, came back flying above Penang and disappeared until today. Therefore, although the inconvenience can be troublesome for passengers, it is done as a necessary measure to ensure the safety of everyone.
