ETS Padang Besar Gemas Timetable

A new high-speed Electric Train Service (ETS) from Padang Besar to Gemas started operating from the 10th October 2015, travelling all the way from the Malaysian / Thailand border station, through Perlis, Kedah, Perak, Kuala Lumpur and then on to the state of Negeri Sembilan.

These ETS Trains are limited stopping Gold Services, taking just over 7 hours to get to Gemas, where the double electrified tracks currently end.

The final section from Gemas to Johor Bahru is still to be constructed (due for completion in 2020).

For now, if you want to travel further south to Johor Bahru and on to Singapore, you have to take the new Shuttle Train services from Gemas to JB, then another from JB to Singapore.
