Cycling has been increasingly a favourite sport even before the pandemic started.

Whether it’s riding professionally or for leisure, it brings much joy to people. After all, bicycling is the best combination of play and exercise.

If you haven’t gone on a cross country cycling trip, you can give it a try using KTM’s new bicycle coaches now.

As reported by The Star, KTM Bhd is now offering trains for special charters to cater to cyclists and for other recreational activities.

Known as the Ekspres Koc Basikal (XKB), a passenger train cabin has been modified to accommodate about 60 full-sized bicycles. There are three coaches to hold the bicycles.

The cyclists will sit in a separate air-conditioned coach that accommodates 60 passengers.

By taking our train, they can explore locations further away from home safely as they will not tire themselves out too much by cycling vast distances.

Available for private charters

KTM also has several specially outfitted coaches for rent that passengers can use for sightseeing, buffets and conferences.

Passengers can even rent a special saloon coach with a full-sized bed and private bedroom.

Private charter train trips can all be arranged in various configurations based on the client’s needs and requests.

KTM added that XKB’s rental price depends on which line it would run on and the distance to be covered.

For enquiries, you can call 03-2263 1077 or drop an email at chartertrain@ktmb.com.my
