KTM Berhad (KTM) today announced new fares for its Komuter service with an increase of up to RM7.10, effective May 1.
KTM in a statement said the difference in the rate of new one-way fares compared with existing fares are dependent on the distance of travel from one station to another.
It also informed the new rate of 20 per cent discount for stored value card (ticket) holders, a discount of between 18 per cent and 26 per cent for weekly pass holders and discounts of 19 per cent to 35 per cent for monthly pass holders, depending on the distance travelled.
Meanwhile, the elderly, persons with disabilities and children aged between 4 and 12 years will continue to enjoy concessionary fares at the rate of 50 per cent of the new cash fares.
According to KTM, the fares adjustment was implemented after approval from the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD). The new rates are excluded from the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The last time KTM Berhad implemented fares adjustment was in February 2003.
Starting April 1, people can get more information about the new fares at all KTM Komuter stations, KTM Berhad websites at www.ktmb.com.my or by calling KTM Call Centre at 1300-88-5862 KTM. â€“ BERNAMA
