RM2 train from Ipoh to KL and back
Incredible, but true. For just as low as RM2, a commuter can travel from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur and return on the new Express Shuttle Train Service to be launched on Dec 1.
Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) is offering the low fare on a month-long promotion to mark the launching of its Ipoh-KL Sentral intercity rail service.
However, the RM1 one-way tickets are valid only for those travelling on the first daily scheduled train out of Ipoh and return on the last train. There are only 100 tickets available each day.
This rapid intercity rail link is being made possible due to the completion of the long delayed double-tracking and electrification project.
It offers a new option to commuters in Perak in need of a convenient way to travel to KL. The less than three-hour journey takes commuters right into the heart of Kuala Lumpur without having to worry about traffic jams.
"Initially, there will be 10 shuttle services a day," said Sabri Muhamud, KTMB’s operations and marketing executive.
"Five shuttle services from Ipoh and five from KL Sentral."
The daily departures to KL Sentral are set for 5am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm and 9pm, while departures from KL Sentral to Ipoh are at 5am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm and 9.45pm.
The four-coach trains will stop for one minute each at Batu Gajah, Kampar, Tapah Road, Sungkai, Slim River, Behrang, Tanjong Malim, Kuala Kubu Baru, Rawang, Sungai Buloh and Kepong Sentral for passengers to disembark or get on board before proceeding to Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and KL Sentral.
The fares from Ipoh to KL are RM18 for second class and RM10 for economy class. No discount is given to children or senior citizens.
The double-tracking and electrification project was undertaken in 2000, but was delayed due to contractual disputes. It is an extension of the track from Rawang to Ipoh.
Under the project, various smaller railway stations along the route were also rebuilt.
Ipoh Railway Station, which combines Moorish architecture with modern embellishments, has also been extensively renovated to include two overhead pedestrian bridges with escalators to link the new and longer platforms.
