Bandar Tasik Selatan KTM Komuter Station
About The Station
The Bandar Tasik Selatan KTM Komuter Station was formed with the completion of a KTM Komuter regional rail halt, as part of the second phase of the electrified Seremban Line (between Batu Caves - Pulau Sebang/Tampin). The Station was completed and opened to the public on November 10, 1995.
The Station was the first in the stop to be accessible from Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), but its facilities were rudimentary, consisting of only two raised side platforms lined along a curved double track, a footbridge, and an elevated ticket area that initially provided only ticket vending machines.
The platform shelters were only sufficient for a limited space, and the halt often suffered from bottlenecking at the ticket area. The various levels of the halt are also linked primarily via staircases or escalators, rendering the halt unfriendly to disabled users.
In 2006 and 2007, renovations works were made to expand the ticket area of the halt, and add a larger concourse area with a manual ticket counter. In addition, existing shelters along the platforms were replaced by large canopies during the middle of 2007, in conjunction with 2006 and 2007 canopy upgrades at most Komuter stations built or upgraded circa 1995.
The addition to the stop is an at-grade rapid transit station for the LRT Sri Petaling Line, formerly known as STAR. The Station was opened on July 11, 1998, as part of the second phase of the LRT Sri Petaling Line's opening, including 7 new stations along the Chan Sow Lin-Sri Petaling route, and was situated directly southeast from the Komuter halt and closer to MRR2.
Because of the layout, the Bandar Tasik Selatan KTM Komuter halt was initially accessible solely via the main entrance of the Ampang Line Station, which currently serves as the southeastern access point into the interchange station.
Besides LRT Sri Petaling Line, the Station also serves as both a stop and interchange for the Express Rail Link's KLIA Transit trains, KLIA Ekspres trains and RapidKL buses.
The Bandar Tasik Selatan interchange has effectively integrated as an inter modal transportation hub.
Integrated Transport Terminal
Under the 9th Malaysia Plan, Bandar Tasik Selatan Station has transformed into a transportation hub to cater for express buses from the South bound. Bus operations to South bound from heavily congested Pudu Sentral was transferred here. The integrated terminal (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, TBS), which cost RM570 million, is fully operational since 1st January 2011.
