Petaling Jaya alternative transport system

Exciting times ahead for Petaling Jaya residents..

The Star reported that:

TRAMS, electric trishaws and water taxis along five rivers in Petaling Jaya are among the alternative modes of transportation proposed in the city’s plan to enable its people to travel in an efficient manner.

Under the plan, boats and hovercrafts would be used to transport commuters from piers built along Sungai Damansara, Sungai Kayu Ara, Sungai Penchala, Sungai Tambul and Sungai Payong by 2015.
