SmartRail World is excited to announce that the latest free edition of ‘ASEAN Rail and Metro – Maximising the Potential’ is now available for our readers. This issue focuses on ways that transit corporations are maximising the potential in ASEAN markets. This is an exciting time for ASEAN rail projects due to the rapid technological development combined with the growing demand for rail transportation. This guide highlights the ways that the ASEAN region are looking to create smarter cities with greater transnational connectivity. For local and global transit corporations, there is no other market as expansive and exciting. However, this rapid growth has caused strain for existing infrastructures, so rail more than ever is a lucrative option for travellers. In this edition, SmartRail World has interviewed President and Group CEO Azmi Abdul Aziz for Prasarana Malaysia and Dono Boe Stami, President Director of Jakarta MRT. Jakarta, is one example of how a city now home to 30 million people must take greater steps to improving integration along the city’s transit systems. Whilst Aziz discusses the opportunities and challenges of new transport networks and hopes to create seamless travel for the growing ridership.
As a result of this expanding market, SmartRail World has dedicated its 18th digital guide to the smarter ways that these 10 countries are creating faster ways to travel both on the tracks and off the tracks. ASEAN rail travel is also paving the way for a better integration of cities and countries as we see new projects for Huge Klang Valley, Singapore and Malaysia. Bangkok has also seen increased investment opportunities in their metro systems in a bid to create a smarter and faster cities.
