Brain drain? Not so.

It will actually keep money flowing more within Malaysia.

This will allow Singaporean companies to set up business subsidiary in KL as KL has lower cost.

It will also help Malacca.

Will Sabah and Sarawak benefit from this project? Will the federal government commit herself to distribute the wealth garnered from this mega project to Sabah and Sarawak? In tawau, Sabah (my hometown), the federal government cannot even provide us continuous electricity and water supply and now they are talking about bullet train and MRT in West Malaysia... Do you see why im butthurt? Mr Kampong (blue blood Sabahan)?

At the very least, with KL-SG bullet train.

The price travelling to SG would be quite competitive.

hopefully the operator can keep the fare below Rm100 for a 2 way ticket.

Let's says there are ten departures from KL to Singapore everyday, and ten in the opposite direction.  Each carries an average of 200 passengers.  Each passenger pays 50 MYR one way.

50 MYR/passenger x 200 passengers/train x 20 trains/day x 365 days/year x 10 years = 0.730b MYR

Assuming the cost of construction, equipment and ten years of operation is only 5b MYR, which is already a grossly underestimated figure, it takes about 68 years to recoup that cost.  Inclusive of interest, and by making the figure a little more realistic, and assuming it is run without profit, it should probably be at least 20b MYR, which takes 272 years to recoup.  To recoup it in 27.2 years, which is possibly more reasonable, the ticket price may have to be multiplied by ten, making it 500 MYR/passenger one way.

nice calculation

RM500?! Malaysians say big problem... AA says no problem... Singaporean says no problem ($200)..

So, Singaporean will be taking bullet train to kl, and malaysian will continue flying with AA.
