The transportation system of Kuala Lumpur (KL) is a cooperation of complex systems of infrastructure. Kuala Lumpur (KL), being the capital of Malaysia, has an unrivaled transportation system in Malaysia, including an integrated rail network, and to a further extent, one of the longest automated driverless metro systems in the world, the Kelana Jaya Line as you can see in Kuala Lumpur (KL) transport map. Despite all the efforts to promote the usage of public transportation, the average usage of public transport in the city is only mere 16% in 2006, among the lowest in Asia. Kuala Lumpur (KL) has the country largest airport, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, as well as South East Asia largest intermodal transport hub, the Kuala Lumpur (KL) Sentral transportation hub. There is also no common ticket for all systems, forcing commuters on continuing journeys to buy new tickets when transferring. However, the LRT, monorail, RAPID KL BUS and KTM Commuter now accept the Touch 'n Go stored value farecard, easing the hassle. Also, RapidKL Rail , the operator of the three LRT lines as well as RapidKL Bus (which cover about 70% of the Klang Valley bus network), has come up with a daily bus ticket which cost as low as RM1, and integrated transit daily pass which can be used on both its rail and bus services that costs RM7.
Public transport in Kuala Lumpur (KL) and the Klang Valley covers a variety of transport modes such as bus , rail and taxi as its shown in Kuala Lumpur (KL) transport map. Unlike in most other major Asian cities, utilization rates are low. Currently, only 16 percent of the population uses public transportation. Among reasons of low usage are because 50% of Kuala Lumpur (KL) residents do not originate from Kuala Lumpur (KL) and hence drive their own private vehicles when moving into Kuala Lumpur (KL). Besides that the covering area of the rail line is not wide enough so less people can use them. Ridership of the public transport system has increased due to the hike in petrol prices. The government is planning to extend the system to accommodate this increase. Metered taxis can be hailed throughout the city. However, traffic jams , especially during rush hour are fairly common in KL and it might be difficult to get a taxi during rush hour.
The public transport system in Kuala Lumpur (KL) is regulated by various authorities, including the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) of the Ministry of Entrepreneur and Co-operative Development, the Ministry of Transport and local governments such as the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur and the other city and municipal councils. There is no single body that regulates the whole sector. The Integration and Restructuring of the Public Transport System in the Klang Valley (Inspak) steering committee, established in July 2003, is tasked with encouraging greater use of public transportation to reduce traffic congestion and initiate the establishment of the Klang Valley Urban Transport Authority as the regulatory authority for public transportation in the Klang Valley as its mentioned in Kuala Lumpur (KL) transport map. Little has been said about the establishment of this authority ever since.
