KUALA LUMPUR: Visitors who travel to the Matta Fair from March 12 to 14 at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) on Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) trains will receive a 25% discount on their fare.
“They should tell officers at the ticketing counter at the train station that they are going to KL Sentral for the Matta Fair before buying their tickets,” said KTMB SBU Intercity Services marketing manager Mohd Noordin Kimi.
However, he said passengers would be entitled to the discount only if they travelled in a group of at least four on the intercity train service.
He added that there was no discount for the RM1 train service from KL Sentral to the Putra Station, located close to the PWTC.
Mohd Noordin said once at the fair, those who buy tickets at the KTMB booth for travel to any part of the country or Singapore would get the 25% discount regardless of the number of people travelling. The discounts are available from March 11 to 15.
KTMB said this yesterday during a joint press conference by the Matta Fair organising committee and KTMB at KL Sentral.
The event next month will see a total of 900 booths set up by local and international travel agencies.
Matta organising committee chairman Datuk Mohd Khalid Harun said the fair would provide a cheaper alternative for commuters and travellers.
Entrance is free for Matta cardholders and RM3 for others.
