KTM Komuter – Touch N Go Usage Guide

Touch N Go is an electronic payment card that can be preloaded with value in Malaysian Ringgit. Touch N Go can be used for KTM Komuter, LRT, highway tolls, parking and shopping.

What is a penalty?

Touch ‘n Go penalty is a pre-set value charged by the Electronic payment system when an irregular transaction is detected.

Irregular transaction happens when user do not touch the card either at the entry or exit, or when the users touch their card more than once at the card reader. Under these conditions, the system is unable to calculate the fare due to invalid information and a penalty fee will be charged.

To avoid being penalized, please place the card at the card reader firmly and wait for the 2-beep sound that indicates a successful transaction.

DO’s

  • Ensure SUFFICIENT CARD BALANCE for every journey. If the balance is insufficient, the turnstile will not open.
  • Ensure that the TRANSACTION IS COMPLETED for each journey, i.e. entry (touch in) and exit (touch out).
  • Place your card firmly at the card reader until you hear a 2-BEEP SOUND.
  • Touch only ONCE at the card reader.
  • Use the SAME CARD to complete your journey.
  • Produce your card for verification upon request from ticketing inspector.
  • Seek help from attendant when you encounter problem.

DONT

  • DONT bend tour Touch ‘n Go card.
  • DONT rush through the gate/turnstile.
  • DONT touch your card more than once at the reader.
  • DONT use the reader to check your card balance.
  • DONT use different cards for one journey i.e. card A at the entry and card B at the exit.
  • DONT keep your card together with a MyKad equipped with the Touch ‘n Go feature. The card reader might accidentally detect both cards.
  • DONT wave your card at the card reader.

If the turnstile does not open after placing your card at the reader, DO NOT revert to manual ticket but seek assistance from attendant. This is because entry information has already been recorded and when the journey is not complete with an exit, a penalty fee will be imposed on your subsequent journey.
