Earlier today, Prime Minister Najib Razak assigned six ministers to lead and achieve six different key result areas (KRA) in order to deliver his promises to the people.

Transport Minister Ong Tee Keat will be in charge of the KRA to upgrade public transportation, which includes (only) these two targets:

Increase the number of public transport users to 25% by end of 2012 from the present 16%.

Add 35 sets of four-car-trains to operate on the Kelana Jaya LRT track by the end of 2012.

More trains for Kelana Jaya LRT?

How about making sure that KTM Komuter trains actually fucking turn up, and then work on them turning up on time?

If ever there should be more trains, it should be on the Seremban line of KTM Komuter, packed almost everyday and barely rideable during peak hours.

Do they really expect that users will increase to 25% just by adding 35 sets of car-trains? In Kelana Jaya line?

What do you guys think should Ong Tee Keat really do in order to increase the usage of public transport to 25%? Let us know in the comments.
