Moreover, KTMB is setting the pace for customer loyalty programs with the introduction of the Rail Rewards initiative on January 1.

This loyalty scheme rewards passengers with points for every ticket bought through KTMB’s Integrated Ticketing System, which can then be redeemed for future travel. This move not only enhances customer satisfaction but also encourages repeated use of KTMB’s services, promoting sustainable travel habits among Malaysians.
