KTM Komuter announced that they are letting bicycle riders bring their bikes into their commuters for a RM2 fee. However, there are some terms and conditions that bikers would need to take note.
Here’s what you need to take note of if you want to bring your bikes on KTM Komuter between Port Klang, Tanjung Malim/Batu Caves, and Tampin/Pulau Sebang:
If you have a foldable bicycle, you’re allowed to bring them into KTM Komuter coaches at any time and every day—including on weekends and public holidays. Whereas if you have a regular bicycle, the times are a little more strict as they take up more space in the commuter coaches.
You’re able to bring regular bicycles in every day, but you’re only allowed to bring your bike in from 9.30am – 4pm and 8pm – 12.30am on the weekdays. On weekends and public holidays, you’re allowed to bring your bikes in from 5.30am – 11am and 8pm – 12.30am.
Here’s what you need to take note of if you want to bring your bikes on KTM Komuter between Padang Rengas, Butterworth and Padang Besar, and Butterworth:
You’re able to bring both foldable bicycles and regular bicycles on the commuter. On weekdays, you’re able to bring them in anytime. But on weekends, you’re only able to bring your bikes in from 5.30am – 11am and 8pm – 12.30am.
KTM Komuter also shares a few other terms and conditions:
- The bicycle owner needs to be responsible for their own bicycle
- You must make sure the bike isn’t obstructing the way, or obstructing the doors
- The bikes must not be left unattended
- The only KTM Komuter coaches that you’re allowed to bring your bike in are the first or last coaches—or any coach that is the least crowded
- You can’t ride the bikes at the lobby station, platform or on the coaches
- The minimum fee will be charged when you bring your bike. You can pay the fee at the counter before you go through entrance area
- Foldable bikes should stay folded the entire time at the station and on the train
- Bike wheels should stay covered if they’re wet or dirty
- You should also cover any part of the bike that could be dangerous
The minimum fee stated by KTM Komuter is the RM2 “promotional fee”, and it should be paid at the counter before getting through the entrance area. The RM2 fee doesn’t include the train ticket fare you need to pay normally. The regular ticket fares are available to be purchased online.
