KTM Komuter fares for the Tanjung Malim – Sungai Gadut and Batu Caves – Pelabuhan Klang Lines will be following the new fare structure implemented by SPAD from 2 December 2015.
Fares for the Gurun – Butterworth – Kamunting and Sungai Gadut – Pulau Sebang (Tampin) – Gemas sectors will not be affected.
The last fare revision was in February 2003, more than 12 years ago.
On top of existing concessions for senior citizens, disabled and children from 4 to 12 at 50% off and free travel for children from 0 to 2, KTM will extend this 50% discount to primary, secondary, college and university students.
Cashless modes of payment such as the Touch n Go card will be cheaper as well, with an average of 20% discount, depending on distance travelled.
KTM’s services has improve drastically with an on time performance of 17% in 2011 to 97% today.
The new fares will help to cover costs for spare parts, operational costs and maintenance costs rising every year. These costs have been increasing with the drop of the Malaysian Ringgit. KTM also pays commercial rates for their electricity.
The new fares will help to sustain the good services provided to the people and it is also KTM Komuter’s corporate social responsibility to keep services safe and sustainable.
