KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayudelayed refund!

I have been waiting for the refund which I requested since 04/06/2019. The estimated time for the refund was supposed to be 60 days and guess what? It's 21th August 2019 now. I tried calling the ktm hotline and they never pick up the call and every time i spent more than 10 minutes for someone to pic up the call but they never did. The service is pathetic, slow and never punctual. The no borang are 360233 and A1125804. Please for once please do your job properly. Thank you

delayed refund!

    KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayujb sentral to woodland train

    I'm a daily commuter who buys ticket online. For the pass week your system has been down and now you're forcing us who bought ticket online to validate ticket every morning. Please be reasonable to us the early commuters, train is at 5am. So now we have to be there at 4am just to validate our ticket. It defeated the purpose of selling ticket online

      KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayuktm card

      So basically what happened was that I forgot my ktm card, this is the first time I forgot to bring, and I thought "owh, nvm I can buy a token or use my ic and solve the problem", but can you believe it, they make you buy a brand new card.(not sure if using an ic is valid option anymore, but they don't do any topping up service for your ic)
      I understand the system's need to encourage using cards, but at the same time the fact that I have to buy a new card just because I forgot to bring it once is idiotic.
      Making card also uses money frm the government side(and with the probability/chance that there will be one person will forgets to bring their card everyday for 365 days, (and I bet that more than 1 person forgets to bring the card)the government is wasting cash to make extra cards everyday)and btw what am I suppose to do with having extra cards?not only that, jst imagine if a foreigner comes over to Malaysia, wants to use a ktm, but has to buy a card that they will never have to use again, jst because there are no other available options.
      I'm not saying having the card system is a bad idea but really, can you cut some slack to ppl that ady forgot to bring their cards.

        KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayuktm touch access system

        I experienced if I touch 2 times at entry gate, the system will deduct RM10 immediately. The reason I touched 2 times was due the the first entry display didn't show any value and gate didn't open so I went to the other entry and it deducted RM 10 then the gate open. This system has makan duit function and this could lead to criminal case. My entry point was from KL Sentra to Serdang. I complained this to the officer in charge and he advised.come back Monday 19 Aug. The incident happen aro 5.30pm 16Aug.

            KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayunot following the schedule on time

            I am filing a complaint regarding on the schedule about the Batu Caves' lane. It is disappointing to say that the train does not follow the given schedule perhaps due to the lack of trains towards Sg. Gadut Lane. This had been inconvenience to many people who were not able to afford their own transport and not being able to reach their workplace on time. Please do not delay your trip or waiting time and follow the given schedules which was promised to the viewers.

              KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayuktm komuter

              Tiada polis bantuan yang membantu menghalau lelaki yang berada di koc wanita, sedangkan selain koc wanita kosong, perkara ini sangat menyusahkan wanita kerana tempat duduk semua dipenuhi lelaki warga asing dan sungguh membahayakan untuk wanita, dengan ini saya sertakan bukti bahawa di koc wanita ramai lelaki sedangkan di koc selain wanita kosong, saya berharap pihak ktm dapat memantau perkara ini demi keselamatan wanita di malaysia. perkara ini sering terjadi apabila saya menaiki ktm, tetapi apabila bermula dari batu caves, kebanyakkan wanita berasa takut untuk menaiki ktm termasuklah saya, dan kami tidak selesa lebih2 lagi wajah warga negara asing yang menyeramkan. sebagai cadangan saya rasa di dalam ktm perlu ada seorang staf ktm untuk memastikan perkara ini tidak berulang lagi. terima kasih

                KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayuseat arrangement in ets (aturan tempat duduk)

                I want to have KTMB attention on this matter. I have few query/complaints here.

                1. Why during seat selection on online booking never present the actual arrangement of the seat? Whether it facing North/South? Its still ok then. In the web never show that seat were facing other guests. Which for me it is very uncomfortable. Share the table, no leg space, very tiny. Totally not represent it's Platinum Class.

                2. Why KTMB need to arrange the seat to be like that? Only for that 2 rows? Just maintain as other seat, even that row need to face the wall, that better than facing others human face. People feel very uncomfortable to be seen and stalked by other along the journey. Its not 20-30minutes time. It's take hours, up to 6 hours.

                3. If KTMB really have to made in that arrangement, why didn't stated in the web any label/sign showing it's real location and arrangement to avoid people who really not keen in that wrongly choose the seat.

                I hope this matter will be looked back and think on customers perspective, not only to fit the no of passengers.

                For KTMB reference :

And the blind man said he asked the KTM employee to help him to reach KL Sentral train but the employee sent him to the Pelabuhan Klang train.

                          KTM / Keretapi Tanah MelayuI would like to report the service and the facility at seremban ktm

                          At 30 July 2019, I would like to use KTM Seremban to KL, they said the touch and go system down, only can go out but we can't go in, I ask for the solution they said go to buy a komuter card.
                          I would like to ask
                          1.Station Seremban is a big station, why the machine for touch and go just one? If every time the machine have problems, why should put a touch and go machine there?

                          2.When can add more some machines? There are around 8 machines but always open just 4 machine, this make every time we went back Seremban and go out will use a lot of time to queue, why don't open the next 4 machine?

                          3.Seremban Station what time will transformations bigger? The station too small but the people get up and down from ktm too much.

                          I wish can get the answer from the department ktm. Thanks.

                            KTM / Keretapi Tanah Melayunon compliance on medical emergency procedure

                            I was travelling via ETS EP9201 departing from Arau today 28/07/19. At around 145 pm, I was at the cafe coach while having my lunch and a gentleman collapsed of epilepsy seizure.

                            I am stunned as 2 of your employee just freeze and stood looking at the person until I asked them to help me move the gentleman. I asked for pillow or blanket to place under the gentleman's head and your staff said they don't have anything on the train. I also ask for first aid kit and I am not sure they have it or not as we didn't get it. I had to asked many times for them to go to the coaches to ask if they any of the passenger is in medical field to assist. It was the passengers on board that went round looking for pillows and shout around for assistance.

                            I would strongly suggest you train your employees some basic medical procedure and ensure you have necessary first aid kit and prepare some blankets and pillows incase of emergency medical attention is needed.

                            Lucky there was an Medical Assistant on board although we got the situation under control while waiting for help. I only know theory but lucky my shallow knowledge helps to handle the situation.

                            Thank you.

                                  Previously the shuttle bus service still works well, but recently the bus schedule has change from half hour per trip to one hour per trip, which cause the bus become so crowded during the peak hour, some even don't have chance to get on the bus and have to wait for another one hour.This also cause the bus sometimes overload and is really danger. Hope KTM can take action on this problem as soon as possible.
