Iskandar Malaysia - Plan for Public Transport - Updated Aug 2013

According to Chinese newspapers in Malaysia, The current status update for the public transport in Iskandar Malaysia is that, the government plans to implement Bus Rapid Transit system in Iskandar Malaysia the most early by year 2016, with the routes Kulai - JB, Nusajaya - JB and Ulu Tiram - JB.

Information of the Iskandar Malaysia Public Transport:

- There are 1.38 M population in Iskandar Malaysia, with only 265K residents taking public transport
- Up until May 2013. 388K riders including of BXTRA 
- Average 7,500 daily riders of BXTRA 
- At least 50 bus routes provided by 8 public bus operators. Among all, 35% are using Ulu Tiram - JB Route.
Bus Rapid Transit Summary:
- Each route can take in 45K riders hourly
- 10 main routes:
   - Kulai - JB
   - Ulu Tiram - JB
   - Nusajaya - JB
   - Pasir Gudang - JB
   - Setia Tropika - JB
   - Senai - Larkin
   - Pulai - Kempas
   - Tanjung Pelapas - Ulu Tiram
In my humble opinion, the public transport system still focus on Johor Bahru instead of Nusajaya. It may give some signals that JB is still the main are to be focused in Iskandar Malaysia. So if you wish to invest in Iskandar Malaysia, maybe it is a better choice, until Nusajaya (Zone B), Senai-Skudai (Zone E), Pasir Gudang & Tanjung Pelepas (Zone C & Zone D) are developed soon later.
