Since 2009, improvements on Klang Valley's public transportation system were going on, ranging from new bus systems, increased train capacity and the on-going centralisation of taxi system. On top of all that, the 4th EPP under Greater KL/Klang Valley of building the MRT promises a more connected Klang Valley. This promises a lot of positive effects for the urbanites, projected to be around 10 million by 2020.
