VISITORS can take a virtual “test drive” at full speed through a picturesque Japanese landscape via a high-speed rail simulator at the Land Public Transport Symposium 2016, themed “Public Transport: Transforming the Nation,” on Oct 17 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
The event promises to be an exciting and enlightening experience for everyone as it opens up the fascinating world of high-speed rail in Malaysia.
Visitors can see first hand what it is like operating a high-speed train.
The simulators from China, South Korea and Japan will provide a realistic representation of the journey aboard a train travelling at up to 354km/h.
The symposium will be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who will deliver the keynote speech on the impact and achievements in public transport.
It will be attended by representatives of authorities, regulators, town planners as well as land public transport operators from Malaysia and the region, who will bring to the fore discussions on initiatives to shape land public transport mobility and connectivity as the catalyst for national socio-economic growth.
This year’s event features an interactive exhibition of the Malaysian land public transport transformation journey which is open to public.
It is a one-day exhibition that will showcase the past, present and future connectivity being driven across Malaysia along with a career fair to present job opportunities available within the land public transport industry.
Visitors can also look forward to winning more than RM100,000 worth of rail and bus passes, as well Touch ‘n Go and other lucky prizes.
