KTM Johor Bahru Kota Bharu
Train Times and Fares

Travelling by KTM train between Johor Bahru and Kota Bharu in Kelantan in the north-east of Peninsular Malaysia takes you on a scenic journey along Malaysia's famous "Jungle Railway" through mountains and ancient rain forests.

There is however currently just one daily train that travels all of this route and that travels overnight offering a comfortable sleeper service.

If you want to take in all the sights you currently have to take the slower shuttle services, but due to long term maintenance on this route, the timetable seems to always be changing!.

Wakaf Bharu is the closest railway station to Kota Bharu, just a few kilometres outside of town and easily reached by a regular, cheap bus service.

Of course, you don't have to make this whole trip in on go and there are plenty of places for you to stop and visit along the way, with other daily shuttle services stopping at nearly every station that you can jump on and off as you go (see the timetable links below).
