Current Klang Valley Urban Bus Network Gap Analysis

Based on Klang Valley’s urban bus network and service performance snapshot as of end-2018 (refer to the below map, where line thickness represents ridership), the present urban bus network is non-connective as transfers among frequent lines are limited mostly in Kuala Lumpur’s CBD.

  • More than a third of stage bus ridership goes to frequent (12-mins or under) routes which represent less than one-tenth (7%) of network
  • Feeder routes represent more than half of all routes but less than one-fifth (18%) of network ridership
TIPS: Click the upper right-hand corner icon to enlarge the map. Inspect the individual elements of the 2018 Klang Valley Urban Bus Network by first toggling the layers (via the tick boxes), and second by hovering and clicking over the element(s) you choose to learn about. Tick the All-Line layer to see all routes at once.

The network is not relevant to common Klang Valley folks, as most frequent lines are linearly tied to trunk roads leading to Kuala Lumpur, and do not serve crosstown trips.

  • Almost all feeder routes and a good portion of many trunk routes are meandering loops, with high degree of redundancy
  • Infrequent network (freq. of >12 mins) discourages transfers, increases redundancies, and perpetuates the low frequency – low ridership vicious cycle
