KTM Ipoh Train Times and Fares

Travel from Ipoh Railway Station by Train is relatively fast, convenient and cheap.

Ipoh is a major stop on the North - South Line in Malaysia, with all ETS Trains stopping here.

These Ipoh high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS) travel throughout the day to and from Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station, Seremban and Gemas to the south and from Ipoh to Butterworth Penang and Padang Besar Railway Station on the Malaysia / Thailand border to the north.

New KTM Train Schedule from 19th May 2016 :

From this date a new KTM train schedule is in operation and you will no longer be able to travel to or from Ipoh on the older Intercity Trains.

All long distance trains on the new dual track between Padang Besar and Gemas will now be operated by ETS high-speed trains, so you will firstly have to take an ETS Train from Ipoh to Gemas.

From Gemas you can continue to Johor Bahru and then from JB to Singapore by new Shuttle Train services.
