THE new-generation trains that will service the Light Rail Transit Kelana Jaya extension line, which begins operating on June 30, will have better air-conditioning, bigger windows and an electronic passenger management chart.
Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Ahmad Nizam Mohamed Amin said the trains imported from Canada come with improved and up-to-date specifications compared to those currently used, to meet the demands of the evolving industry.
“We will rectify some minor problems on the existing model so that we will not face similar issues in future,” he told the media during a visit by participants of the Asia Rail Convention to the Prasarana Depot in Lembah Subang.
Ahmad Nizam added that the 14 four-car trains called Bombardier INNOVIA Metro 300, would be introduced in June while another set of eight trains would be brought in later.
Earlier, Nizam briefed the group before they were taken on a site visit at the depot and to Prasarana’s new control centre.
