KTM Berhad Train to Operate for 24 Hours Amid Thaipusam Festivities

Good news, commuters! In celebration of the Thaipusam Festival, KTM Berhad (KTMB) will provide 24-hour non-stop train service from Feb. 4-6.

The first train from Sungai Gadut station to Batu Caves station will operate at 10 PM, while the first service from Port Klang station to Batu Caves will start at 11:43 PM.

About 24 stations will run for 24 hours including Senawang, Tiroi, Nilai, Batang Benar, Serdang, Bandar Tasek Selatan, and KL Sentral.

Over 180,000 locals and tourists are expected to visit Batu Caves to observe Thaipusam and honour Lord Subramaniam.

To ensure seamless travel, KTMB’s head of operations Afzar Zakariya advised the public to purchase a Link Komuter card or a Touch ‘n Go card in advance.

“The KTMB would also like to remind all users who are going to visit Batu Caves to wear a face mask while on the train as per the directive issued by the government,” Afzar was quoted as saying at a press conference as reported by the Malaysia Gazette.
