  1. Hi, is Transit a registered body under the Society Act 1966? Would be great if you guys are registered under the Society Act 1966 to better represent the public in public transport issues.

    1. @Jack

      Thanks for the question. Frankly, we have been to busy to register and we do not see ourselves as a society anyways. TRANSIT is an association of existing societies as well as other members with a specific purpose – to raise awareness and knowledge about public transport & policy issues in Malaysia.

  2. The reason I’m bringing this up is that frm my understanding of the Land Public Transport Act 2010, SPAD will be setting up a Land Public Transport Forum for representatives from the public to give suggestions and feedback on how SPAD can further improve public transport in M’sia. However, I believe organisations which will become members of this forum must be a registered body under the Society Act 1966. At the moment, I can’t think of a better or more suitable organisation than TRANSIT to represent the public in addressing the long outstanding issues related to public transport in Malaysia.

    1. @Jack

      Thank you for that message of support and also the information about the Land Public Transport Forum. We appreciate your feedback.

      TRANSIT has considered the registration and will hopefully be able to look at it in the future. However at this time we are facing some challenges that prevent us from being a full-fledged society and meeting all of the expectations of a society registered under the Societies Act.

      Regards, Moaz for TRANSIT

  3. Its interesting to note , Transit conveniently forget the traffic on our roads.All Transit believe is mrt/lrt is the mother of all solutions pertaining to the traffic jam currently experienced and not to talk about the future.
    U call yourself transit but you had demonstrated in your writings ignorance of what land transportation is all about.
    You conveniently forget the studies undertaken by SPAD and PEMANDU in 2008 on the public transportation modal split where it concluded that even with achieving modal split of 50:50 in year 2025, there is still 3.9 million car population we have to grapple with.To achieve that50:50 split is ambitious and it would include whatever the suggestions you put forward in the construction and improvements to the mrt /lrt/monorail.Transit simply refused to understand our land transportation issues but more interested to point fingers and politicise the issues.
    I am very sure my comment wont see the light of the day but at least I am happy to get it out my chest.

      Thank you for your comment.

      TRANSIT is well aware of the current land transportation situation in Malaysia and have regularly consulted with SPAD, PEMANDU and other public transport agencies since 2008.

      We support improvements to land transportation in general and public transportation in particular … and these improvements are not limited to LRT/MRT…and certainly not limited to the Klang Valley.

      While you may disagree with our approach there are more than enough data and examples from Malaysia and around the world that reinforce our position on transportation issues.

      What you may see as “pointing fingers” we see as pushing for accountability. What you see as “politicizing issues” we see as reminding leaders of their responsibility to serve the public…a responsibility that is an unavoidable part of public life.

      Once again, thank you for your comment.

      Regards, Moaz Yusuf Ahmad for TRANSIT
