You can now use debit, credit cards and e-wallets at 80 Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) stations in Klang Valley and the northern region after the transport company recently enabled a new open payment system.
The new system was launched by Transport Minister Anthony Loke and he was quoted by Bernama saying that passengers can now make payments at automated control gates.
He also said that these transactions can be completed within one to five seconds.
However, he said, it is only available for Komuter services and not their electric train service (ETS), as those require users to purchase their ticket online.
Loke also mentioned during his speech that the upgrading project was completed at the end of last year and the transformation work to the new payment system was fully completed in just over a year.
KTMB fully funds this project without any injections from the government. Kudos to KTMB for their forward-thinking initiative and swift, precise execution.Transport Minister Anthony Loke
KTMB also recently introduced the Rail Rewards loyalty programme on 1 January that offers users reward points for every ticket purchased via KTMB’s Integrated Ticketing System which can be redeemed for purchasing subsequent train tickets.
