Thaipusam is happening this week, and many will be heading to Batu Caves for the colourful annual ritual. Devotees and tourists can consider taking the KTM Komuter trains there, as the service will operate non-stop, 24 hours, for three days starting today.

“The train operations will be extended after the current hours. Using additional trains, it will operate from midnight until 5.30am. This service is meant for the public’s usage, especially those observing Thaipusam and tourists who are going to Batu Caves,” KTM said in a statement yesterday, adding that there will be 623 trains operating during this period and 500 KTM employees on duty.

Getting to the KTM station is also cheaper with an RM8 discount given by Grab. “This offer is only for 1,000 Grab users and is limited to two journeys only. Payment should be made through debit or credit cards only,” it said.
