Hybrid Train EMU

Starting from 6 Mei 2009, Jabatan Perkhidmatan Komuter (Commuter Service Board) has introduced another new kind of additional Komuter service as part of short term plan to alleviate Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) shortage crisis; the hybrid train.

Hybrid train EMU is a train set where a refurbished once-a-mechanically-defunct EMU is hauled by a diesel electric locomotive with power supplied by a Power Generated Car (PGC) to provide enough electricity to power up the air-cond and electric-powered door. Hybrid train can accommodate as much as 400 commuters in one go. For Rawang-Seremban sector, hybrid train only stops at Rawang, Sungai Buloh, Kepong Sentral, Putra, Bank Negara, Kuala Lumpur, KL Sentral, Mid Valley, Bandar Tasik Selatan, Serdang, Kajang, UKM, Bangi, Nilai and Seremban. For KL Sentral-Shah Alam route, the train only stops at Shah Alam, Batu Tiga, Subang Jaya, Setia Jaya, Petaling, Pantai Dalam and KL Sentral.

This additional one-of-a-kind service is part of KTMB effort to add more frequency and reduce waiting time after receiving lots of complaints and feedbacks from commuters and will improved their service from time to time.
