Yesterday was my first train ride from Bangi to KL.My son took me to UKM Station and I paid RM4 for a single trip to Segambut. Lately,I am trying to walk my talk of driving less by using more public transport ;and if possible I should try to cycle to commute short distances.
Sadly,I have a very bad impression about the level of service of facilities management at the station-not to mention the UKM station looks plain and boring.I did not see even a flower pot at the platforms.After buying my ticket, I tried to slip in the ticket at the turnstile but all the two turnstiles were not working.On my return journey, when I wanted to use the lift, it was out of order!
The only thing that impressed me was the brand new coaches as shown on the top right.There were clean and on time.May be because they are still new..
When I arrived at Segambut Komuter Station,it reminds me of the railway station at Palekbang,Tumpat Kelantan way back in 1960's.Only one temporary toilet was provided and it smelled urine all over!No one checked my ticket at exit and again the turnstiles here were no better than at UKM Station.
Some travellers may just travel free...
