Batu Caves train station 2010

The new Batu Caves train station has opened, and the KTM Komuter route started service on July 29 2010. It connects Batu Caves to Port Klang, via Sentul.

The new station is rather smart. I remember when it was just a field, with a small hut. The only time I used the train in the past was during one Thaipusam -this was the only time that the line was in operation for public trains. It is normally used for the cement cargo industry.

The 7.5 kilometre journey from Sentul to Batu Caves takes 15 minutes. The new route passes through five new stations namely Sentul, Batu Cantonment, Kg Batu, Taman Wahyu and Batu Caves.

The train fare for the Pelabuhan Klang-Sentul route is RM5.80 and an addition of RM1.30 is charged for the direct journey from Sentul to Batu Caves.
