  1. Selamat pagi,
    pertama sekali saya ingin mengucapkan ribuaan terima kasih diatas keperhatian pihak KTM sempena perayaan Thaipusam dengan melanjutkan tempoh masa perjalanan.
    Mintak tempoh perkhidmatan dilanjutkan
    Contoh:Dari 7~9 feb dilanjutkan hingga ke
    7~11atau seminggu kerana ramai juga yang akan ke batu caves selepas
    Thaipusam.Dengan ini saya percaya ramai yang akan gunaan pengangkutan awam daripada menaiki kenderaan sendiri.

    Terima kasih.
    N.Raja
