KUALA LUMPUR: North and south-bound commuters from Kuala Lumpur will enjoy the state-of-the-art Integrated South-Bandar Tasik Selatan Transport Terminal (TBS-BTS) which is set to open on Jan 1.
MAJU Terminal Management and Services (TMAS), the newly-appointed operator for the TBS-BTS, said the terminal which is situated far from crowded city centre would be well received by the public.
"In conjunction with the Government's National Key Result Area initiatives, the terminal will boost public transportation in the country with user-friendly e-ticket booking and purchasing system, as such the centralisation will curb illegal ticket selling.
"Adhering to the 'Green' effort by the world community, the TBS-BTS is also surrounded by over 10,000 species of flora and has Central Vacuum System that ensures cleanliness and hygiene of the terminal," said MAJU TMAS in a statement here.
The terminal provides commuters ease of connectivity to the existing Bandar Tasik Selatan Station where the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Komuter, Express Rail Link (ERL) Transit and Rapid KL Light Rail Transit (LRT) are in operation.
Covering a development area of approximately 49 acres, the terminal complex has six floors, 55 bus platforms, 150 taxi bays, 1,000 parking bays (with special parking bays for women) and 1,800 seats for the public within the fully air-conditioned waiting halls. – Bernama
