30 of these Klang Valley-wide public transport route maps were commissioned
by and delivered to Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM)'s Komuter department to be
installed in stations. They were intended to guide commuters on continuing
their journeys should they then need to hop on to a bus or another train line
after getting off the Komuter train.
Its area coverage
stretched from Selayang in the north to Balakong in the south, and from Ampang
in the west all the way westward to Subang Jaya. Apart from route information,
bus fares, operating hours and frequencies are clearly stated on top of each
map. These large format maps were printed to withstand outdoor conditions
within train stations.
These maps were
based on an initial design for bus stop maps, as commissioned by City
Hall's Urban Transport Department. These were initially planned to be
released in 2006, but its printing was delayed due to the bus
network revamp of Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras (RapidKL), Kuala
Lumpur’s current main public transport provider, in the same year.
