Book your railway tickets in Malaysia online using an online train booking agent or directly from the KTMB E Ticket System.
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.
Train Tickets can usually be purchased up to 60 days in advance, but are currently available up until the end of January 2017 (Chinese New Year).
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.
Please note : When booking online, you will have to pay a small admin fee on top of the counter ticket price.
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 to Bangkok in Thailand, you can only do this in Malaysia by visiting the station or by using the ticket office in George Town Penang Island (located along the walkway to the ferry over to Butterworth).
This is because this service is not operated by KTMB but by the State Railways of Thailand (SRT).
If you are travelling in the other direction from Bangkok to Butterworth, you can book tickets through an agent in Thailand and pick your ticket up from their office at Hua Lamphong Railway Station in Bangkok.
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.
Please note : There is a non refundable 2 MYR admin fee to pay using the KTM site.
