bringing 2 U events & happenings in and around Ipoh … & beyond…
KTM Berhad will cease operations for its Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur shuttle train service from July 1, 2011. Since the announcement was made, I have received many messages from readers who asked if there will no longer be any train service to Kuala Lumpur from Ipoh and vice-versa.
There is the Electric Train Services (read this post on fast train services) but we can still continue to take cheap trains from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur from July onwards thanks to KTM Intercity.
