KTMB New Website

[November 13th 2012] KTM Berhad has changed their website design quite a number of times this year. Access time has improved throughout the years but it is still not as user friendly as some other transport service websites.

Six yellow boxes link to the most commonly visited link in the website. This is a nice addition with the new version.

Of another note, if you need a guide on using KTMB e-Ticket, visit this page for more information.

[KTMB Announcement] KTM Komuter Revised Schedule

NOTICE

REVISED KTM KOMUTER SCHEDULE

 

Dear valued customers,

 

Beginning 18th June 2012, KTM Komuter will operate with some changes on scheduling of departure time for all routes. The changes are made to adjust the use of both Three-Car Set and Six-Car Set MyKomuter which introduced previously on March.

 

However the service retained existing frequency every 15 minutes during peak hours for the sector between the Batu Caves – Klang and Bangi – Sungai Buloh. Frequency of other sectors remained every 30 minutes throughout the day.

 

Along with the implementation of this new schedule, the Six-Car Set MyKomuter will begin its service from Sungai Gadut to Rawang and from Rawang to Sungai Gadut.

 

Thank you.
