KUALA LUMPUR: The Electric Train Service (ETS) ferried 120,648 passengers between Aug 12, when it was launched, and Nov 11, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said 97,244 passengers travelled on the Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur route and 6,829 passengers went on the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban route up to October.
The government spent RM240 million to buy five sets of six-coach electric trains for use on the two routes, he said in a written reply to Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut).

Kong said the ETS offered discounts of between 20 and 50 per cent to various categories of passengers, including students, the disabled, government pensioners and senior citizens.
