IPOH: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) has introduced a cashless payment system for KTM Komuter trains, known as the open payment system.

The system allows commuters to use debit cards, credit cards, or ewallets to pay at automated control gates.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said this method is only for the Komuter trains, and it does not include the Electric Train Services (ETS) because these trains have allocated seats for a limited number of passengers only.

“I hope such a cashless payment system would also be adopted for other public transport systems. Prasarana is taking steps to implement such a system,” he said.

The system has been in place for three months, but the launching was done today to address technical issues.

Transport Minister hopes that this system will encourage digitisation for efficient services to the people.
