From the 10th October 2015, a new ETS Gemas high-speed Electric Train Services began operating between Gemas and Butterworth in Penang and Gemas and Padang Besar in Perlis, both travelling via KL Sentral Station in Kuala Lumpur.
The new dual track has now been completed between Kuala Lumpur and Gemas in the state of Negeri Sembilan, with the new high-speed trains coming online gradually over the next year or so.
The final section on the North - South Line in Malaysia, between Gemas and JB Sentral in Johor Bahru will be the last section to be built and is now being operated by Shuttle Trains as all long distance Intercity Trains on the N-S Line are now cancelled.
Currently there are three ETS Train services a day leaving from Gemas Railway Station, heading north and three arrivals a day.

Like all train tickets in Peninsular Malaysia, ETS tickets usually go on sale 60 days in advance.
You can book your tickets direct from any mainline KTMB train station, or to save you the trouble of visiting the station, you can purchase an e-ticket online.
Online ETS train booking can be made either directly through the KTM website (for a small additional fee), or you have the option to book through an online train ticket agent which often works out slightly cheaper.
