KTM Update: New Komuter website, route map & station codes introduced

TRANSIT notes that KTM Komuter service has introduced a new website, independent from the existing KTMB website.

This is in keeping with KTMB Managing Director Dr. Aminuddin Adnan’s plan to restructure KTMB and spin off the 4 divisions (Freight, intercity, Komuter and ETS) into separate subsidiary companies.

The new KTM Komuter website is www.ktmkomuter.com.my and you can find the link posted to the left side of our website in the list of Public Transport Operators – Malaysia.

When KTM Komuter gets a twitter feed, we will post it to the right side of our website (perhaps replacing @KLMonorail which rarely tweets).

New Route Map

KTM Komuter has introduced a new route map to go with the Komuter website. You can see the full-sized map here.

Please note that at this time there are a few errors in the map that need to be resolved – namely:

  • The fact that MidValley and Seputeh are placed in the wrong order
  • The fact that the “Bus to KLIA” does not clearly refer to Nilai; and finally
  • The colour scheme (who uses brown and blue together?) which is not consistent with KTM Komuter’s corporate colours.
  • Also, what about showing the existing shuttle services on the map so people know what their options are?

  1. Can I know what is the purpose of the codes? Why the codes differ for Tanjong Malim-KL and Midvalley to Seremban?

    1. Saktish

      As far as we can tell, the purpose of the codes is to help identify station on a system map or in a control room scenario – It is also easier to convey information (say, for an electronic trip planner) if you have less information to pass along.

      For example, if a computer can recognize KA1 as KL Sentral, then all programmes can use KA1 in programming, rather than “KL Sentral”

      Another possible reason is to identify separate rail services – and separate railway subdivision. For example, the Sentul -Pelabuhan Klang and Tg. Malim – Seremban rail lines are treated as a continuous line on the route map, but they actually use 3 separate segments of the railways.

      RapidKL is also introducing a code system for the LRT Ampang Line and Kelana Jaya line, and KL Monorail.

  2. When will the double-track KTM train service between Rawang – Ipoh be started? How much is the fare and will take how long to reach Ipoh railway station? Any shuttle bus service at station to take passengers to Ipoh town area?

    1. Raymong,

      KTMB is already running a (diesel) shuttle train service between KL and Ipoh, on the KL-Ipoh-KL route. The cost of the train is RM10 one way. It takes approximately 3 hours to reach Ipoh railway station.

      The (electric) ETS service is targeted to start in the middle of July. Right now we do not know what the fare is but expect it will be in the range of RM30-40 (transit service) / RM50-60 (Express service). Transit service should take a little bit less than 3 hours, while the expectation is 2 hours 20 minutes for express service.

      As for shuttle service, there is no service offered by KTM, but there are bus services in Ipoh from the bus terminal which is next to the train station.

      Regards, Moaz for TRANSIT

      The timetable for the KL Sentral – Rawang segment can be found here.

      The timetable for the Rawang-Tg. Malim segment can be found here.

      The cost of the fare is RM7.00 / RM14.00.

  3. KD1 must be the future station at KL Eco City which will be side by side with KJ Line Abdullah Hukum Station

    1. @Cairel

      That is quite possible. We have been telling KTM for quite some time to build a station at Abdullah Hukum as the interchange is necessary – especially in line with future developments.

      It is quite possible that the MRT Circle Line will also run through the area – meaning Abdullah Hukum could become a 3-station interchange station … quite a change from the sleepy station that it is today.

  4. if i want to go Gemas, negri sembilan by train, which route should i take? because i dont see any station that stop at Gemas

    1. Hi @Adila

      KTM Komuter does not serve Gemas yet. However, it was recently extended to Sg. Gadut.

      I do not know what your origin is so I cannot give you a specific advice, but coming from KL you have the option of taking an intercity train direct from KL Sentral, an ETS Silver service to Seremban, or a KTM Komuter train to Seremban.

      If you choose Komuter or ETS you would have to take a KTM intercity train to get to your final destination at Gemas.

    1. @RIA

      We know of no serious plans for rail service to Kuala Selangor in the future. At this time we note that bus operators are cutting back on bus services there.

  5. hi,how to go to amcorp mall at pj from klang by ktm?which station should i stop and maybe continue take another bus to amcorp mall pj?your feedback will be very much usefull for me.thank you.
    from Lainy.

  6. Why at Kuala Selangor never plans for KTM project. In past few years 1915 the railway tracks already have. Why never update for community. The public service was very poor. The Kuala Selangor city is one of the tourist places in our country

  7. UnsubscribeThis email contains graphics, so if you don’t buy their excess waiver paphos car hire insurance products will not cover this damage at all. Anithesis walls will be once more buzzing with colour, this time from the airport from A45 Coventry Road. A part from paphos car hire, as well as submit a whole lot of requirements. Greek Cypriots say that can only happen if we break from the show.
