Port Klang Line (Malay: Laluan Pelabuhan Klang) (coloured red on the Klang Valley rail transit map) is one of the three KTM Komuter services provided by Keretapi Tanah Melayu. The electric trains run between Tanjung Malim and Port Klang. Previously before 15 December 2015, the northern terminus of this line was Batu Caves.

KTM Komuter is an electrified commuter train service first introduced in 1995, catering especially to commuters in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding suburban areas. It is a popular mode of transportation for commuters working in Kuala Lumpur, as they can travel to the city without the hassle of traffic congestion. Coaches are modern and air-conditioned. For those who drive to the stations/halts, 'Park & Ride' facility is provided at a nominal charge.

The line is one of the components of the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System.

KTM Komuter Trial Route[edit]

A new route for KTM Komuter services was introduced in preparation of the infrastructure upgrading works in the Klang Valley Double Tracking project in April 2016. It aimed to increase the frequency and the smooth running of the KTM ETS, KTM Komuter, KTM Intercity & Freight at the Central Sector.[1]

The original Port Klang Line from Batu Caves-Port Klang was changed to Rawang-Port Klang effective 15 December 2015.

Former Rawang—Tanjung Malim shuttle service[edit]

The KTM Komuter service was expanded to include three new stations beyond Rawang on April 21, 2007 under what was then known as the Rawang-Rasa shuttle service. The stations were Serendah, Batang Kali, and Rasa.

This 22 km stretch was the first portion of the Rawang-Ipoh double tracking and electrification project to become operational. The service was extended to Kuala Kubu Bharu on January 5, 2008. It was further extended to Tanjung Malim on June 1, 2009 and the service was renamed as the Rawang-Tanjung Malim shuttle service.

Until 11 July 2016, passengers had to disembark at Rawang and transfer to the Rawang-Tanjung Malim shuttle service for stations north of Rawang. Service ran at 30 minutes interval. The first and last trains to leave Rawang are at 05:42 and 21:24 while the first and last trains leaving Tanjung Malim are at 05:42 and 21:54. Journey time between Rawang and Tanjung Malim is 45 minutes.

Beginning 12 July 2016, the Rawang-Tanjung Malim shuttle was terminated and was fully integrated into the Port Klang Line as a through service, with trains running all the way to Tanjung Malim.

Future Terminal Skypark Line[edit]

The construction of Terminal Skypark Line taken from Persiaran Kerjaya.

The work for the shuttle service connecting Subang Jaya to Subang Skypark is currently being carried out. This extension will provide rail connectivity to the airport that is currently only served by other kinds of road transportation. The line being built is 8 km long and is slated to have three stations: Glenmarie, Sri Subang, and Terminal Skypark.[2][3]

Rolling stock[edit]

The line uses KTM Class 92 trains in 6 car formations.
