Transport Ministry calls on KTMB to extend discount promotion for ETS, KTM Intercity train services to Nov 16

PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry has called on Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) to extend its 50% discount promotion for its Electric Train Service (ETS) and KTM Intercity train services to Nov 16.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said KTMB should consider extending the promotion period following the extension of the conditional movement control order (MCO) in the Klang Valley until Nov 9.

"I have asked KTMB chief executive officer Datuk Kamarulzaman Zainal to take necessary measures for the sake of the public.

"I have also instructed KTMB to extend the promotion period so that more people may be able to enjoy it for up to a week after the conditional MCO in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya ends on Nov 9," he said.

The promotion period started on Oct 28.

Dr Wee said he was called to suggest the extension after reading a post on Datuk Seri Najib Razak's Facebook page pointing out that the last day of KTMB's discount promotion on its services coincided with the last day of the conditional MCO.

The discount is applicable for all destinations covered by KTMB but passengers in conditional MCO zones must have permission to travel interstate.

The ETS and KTM Intercity train services provide transport for passengers to Tumpat, Johor Baru, Gemas, Ipoh, Butterworth and Padang Besar.
