Malaysia experience shows the mistake of building rail before buses

New Straits Times : "First came the rail systems, the Putra and Star light rail transit (LRT) and KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd), as well as the ERL (Express Rail Link) to KLIA. Then came the monorail. Feeder buses around commuter trains grew to service the passengers, but it was slow and time consuming. Although the commuter trains were jam-packed during rush hours, the system did not develop in tandem to gain popularity. "
