Commuters will be able to reach their destination in one hour and 55 minutes compared with two hours and 50 minutes now.
This is because KTM Bhd’s electric train services (ETS) are scheduled to start operations then with five sets of six-car trains. The ETS will also ply the Ipoh-Seremban route in less than three hours.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, who received the first ETS set yesterday, said commuters could look forward to having comfort, quality and efficiency while travelling on the two routes.
Although the fares would be slightly higher, he said the 350-seat electric train would have better facilities.
