MRT Kajang Line trains getting women’s coach, Sep 17

Click to enlarge

Trains on the MRT Kajang Line are getting a women’s coach, which as its name suggests, is reserved for women – men are not allowed.

Rapid KL says that sticker installation and operational testing for the women’s coach on the MRT Kajang Line is currently underway and is expected to be completed by September 17. The images shared show pink-marked gates with the female emblem, as well as pink stickers on the floor and gantry. Visibility wise, it’s pretty obvious.

What do you think of women’s coaches on public transport? My two cents is that while the idea behind women-only coaches is good, it must be enforced, and not just by not allowing men into the reserved coaches, but the other way around too – women must use their reserved coach and not just jump into any coach, making it more packed for everyone else, who have one less coach to begin with.

Ladies, would you feel the pressure to separate from your partner or family to go into the women’s coach? I guess no one would begrudge a lady with her family and kids in the normal coach, but how about couples? Single ladies, remember that you now have your own safe space, so use it.

  • Totally unnecessary, just increase the frequencies between 6.30am to 8.30am back to 3-4mins will solve all the sardine issues already. Win win for all.

  • so there is a coach for women and there is a mixed coach? Men really have no place but only a little eh? there’s a 75% chance they’ll have to stand during peak hour. great superb move.

    Those who complain about this women’s only coach most probably do not mind about women being disturbed/groped/molested by sexual perverts/predators, or probably they are the sexual perverts/predators or sex criminal offenders themselves.

      why always the woman have to be asked to go things to “protect” them from the man since the problem wouldn’t be a problem if the man can keep their hands or “little bro” in check ? Pls educate our sons to respect others especially the woman and elders.

    No one follows the rules, no enforcement etc.
    So, what’s the point?

      do first, enforce later. nothing perfect in this world. but improvement can be done if the first step has been taken.

  • EQ for all on Sep 06, 2023 at 2:25 pm can also get molested nowadays you know. I question the real motive to this move, are we going more like Kelantan ? What next ? no shorts or dress in MRT ?

      Separate cinema halls for women. Separate mall also can. Everything separate. We must appease the green people, if not later everything is other people’s fault. Ride car also must separate. Also, pink grab for ladies only. GLC for ladies only also brilliant. Apartment complex for female only also good. Why not open a new city only for women inhabitants? The list is endless!

      i agree with u. now they are even hinting that women’s only coach will increase pengkid activities. there’s a real shortage of gentlemen behaviour & attitude nowadays.

    • I do. We wait if it’s too pack or feel uncomfortable. No reason for a women only section. Ain’t giving shit during peak hours. You’re not the only one who’s going to work is what I say.

      have u ride the public transport during peak hour? the move is okay if they separate only women and only men coach. no mix coach. now you have women only coach and mixed coach and it will create more problem. just reduce the waiting time from 5 minute to 1 minute with 4 coach.

    It’s so stupid, especially when it’s at the early morning rush hour. Already super crowded, but still want to limit the cars for man. Jungle mindset.

    To me is a bit stupid move. Instead this create more pack and delay time.

    Yes, just increase the frequency of the trains during peak hours. The male female segregation issue is more relevant to KTM lines as average travelling times on these trains are more than 30 minutes.

    Tbh, it seems pretty reasonable for some people, but for me, I rather stick with my friends, with my brother, rather than be in a lane with just women or people I don’t know. It can work best during the rush hour, but no one seems to care who they’re crushed into in the train. I don’t like this
