Use the KTMB E Ticket System to book your railway tickets in Malaysia online using an online train booking agent or directly from the Malaysian Railways website.
All KTMB railway services on the new Electric Train Services (ETS) can be booked online as well as most of the older Intercity Express Trains and Shuttle Trains between JB and Singapore.
Train Tickets can usually be purchased up to 60 days in advance.

Using a ticket agent is the simplest way to book your Malaysian Train Tickets online.
There is no need to register for an account (as you have to do on the KTMB official website).
Just enter your point of origin, destination, number of passengers and travel date in the search box to see all the seats and sleeping berths still available for all trains on that route.
Once you have made your Malaysian train booking, just print out your ticket image, which will be sent to you by E-mail and take that along to the station with you.
Using the search box above you can book all trains from Singapore and within Peninsular Malaysia from JB Sentral station in the south, to as far as Padang Besar on the border with Thailand in the north (a new SRT Shuttle train to Hat Yai in Thailand is now in service - from there you can connect with Thai Railway services to Bangkok).
If you want to buy tickets for the International Express Train from Butterworth (now Padang Besar) to Bangkok
in Thailand, you can only do this from Padang Besar as the Butterworth KTM ticket office is no longer selling tickets for this service.
This is because this service is not operated by KTMB but by the State Railways of Thailand (SRT).
If you want to pre-book tickets from Padang Besar into Thailand, you can now do that online.
If you want to book direct from the KTMB official website, you will first have to register for an account.
Once you have done that, you can get into the booking system with your account Username and Password.
If you want to book tickets for Senior Citizens (Malaysians only), you will have to use the KTM booking website.
