PUTRAJAYA: Fares for KTM Komuter users will be reduced by 20% for one year from April 1, says Transport Minister Anthony Loke.

“The public can enjoy the discount for one year and we will be reviewing it to determine its effectiveness,” he said.

Loke added that following Cabinet approval of the proposal, some 94,000 commuters are expected to benefit.

He said that commuters plying five routes serviced by KTM will be eligible for the discount.

The KTM Komuter routes are Padang Rengas-Butterworth, Butterworth-Padang Besar, Port Klang-Tanjung Malim, Seremban-Batu Caves and Sungai Gadut-Tampin.

“Commuters who are already enjoying a 20% discount when they go cashless will get another 20% discount on top of this.

“We hope this initiative will help reduce the cost of living and encourage the use of public transport,” he said after chairing the ministry's post-Cabinet meeting on Wednesday (Feb 20).
