TRANSIT notes that a 6-carriage Electric Train Service (ETS) trainset will be added to supplement the existing KTM Komuter service as of 4 October 2010 (Monday).
The train will operate on the following routes during peak hours, Monday to Friday:
Seremban – Sg. Buloh (dep. 0615 arr. 0751)
Sg. Buloh – Kajang (dep. 0755 arr.0850)
Sentul – Seremban (dep. 1830 arr. 2001)

It’s about time. Frankly, we expected that KTMB would have to shift one or more of the ETS trains to the Komuter service as long as the government continues to delay the purchase of the new trains.
We can only hope that with the overhaul progressing well, the existing trains will be back in service to augment the fleet within a short time.
If you happen to catch the ETS trains running Komuter service, do take a photo and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a link into the comments section of this post.
