Tight squeeze – Kelana Jaya LRT

Hi! A quick whinge about my little adventure on the LRT to the Setiawangsa stop before going to Kemaman last week. I had to meet Nells at Setiawangsa station so I was at the Kelana Jaya LRT at 7.30am. I had to cross the overhead bridge to get to the platform – and I already saw the teeny speck of people from across the bridge:

My knees weakened at the thought of being sandwiched in between them

Wild thoughts of getting a cab filled my head, but my feet trudged on (with my little overnight luggage). I swiped my touch n go card and went up to join the queue for that Kylie Minogue concert.

Can you imagine what it must be like to actually BE on the train itself? 20 minutes later, i found out.

Sardines, anyone?

Dont get me wrong. LRT is a welcome relief to the usual traffic crawl in the mornings…but standing for 40 minutes to Setiawangsa stop from Kelana Jaya, with at least 5 people standing IN YOUR AURA is badddd. To the extent i didnt have the space to fold my ARMS! I had to tell the guy near me to “Excuse me, can you please give me some space?”….he looked at me weird and shuffled abit to the left. Then i realised he was listening to his ipod…!

Sigh….why did my one LRT experience after the last 1 year have to be so unpleasant!? LRT is usually a breeze to use but only non-office hours. I guess that it is encouraging that the response is overwhelming. Perhaps they need it more frequently in the mornings?
