On this page you will find links to all the Kuala Lumpur train times and fares for all the popular tourist destinations on peninsular Malaysia that are linked by the KTM Berhad Railways system.
All trains depart from Kuala Lumpur's transport hub and the main railway station, KL Sentral Station.
New KTM Train Schedule from 19th May 2016 :
From this date all KTMB Intercity Trains will no longer be operating from KL Sentral.
All long distance services on the new dual track between Gemas and Padang Besar will now be operated by ETS Trains only.
If you wish to travel south of Gemas (ie JB Sentral / Singapore) you will firstly have to catch an ETS Train to Gemas, then connect with a new Shuttle Train or Intercity Train from there.
If you want to travel to Hat Yai from KL by train, you will have to catch an ETS Train to Padang Besar, then either catch a Shuttle Train to Hat Yai or continue by local bus.
Please see the new KTM timetables on the following pages :
Replacing the older Intercity services are the new high-speed ETS Trains which will get you to Butterworth in half the time compared to the old Express Trains.
If you are planning to travel from KL to George Town on Penang Island, the Butterworth Ferry Terminal is is just a short walk away from Butterworth Railway Station.
Trains from KL to Ipoh are plentiful due to the fact that the Electric Trains (ETS) run on this route and all long distance ETS services also stop in Ipoh heading north.
For ETS train schedules, please see the following pages :
Other Destinations to the North :
The one direct service from KL to Thailand, the daily overnight Intercity Express - KL to Hat Yai train is now cancelled.
From Hat Yai there are a number of services heading north travelling along the eastern coast up to Bangkok.
Other options for trains from KL to Thailand include catching a train first to Butterworth and then using the International Express train from Butterworth to Bangkok.
A longer but more scenic route would be to catch the Jungle Line up to Kota Bharu, then a bus to the border where the Thailand Southern train line begins at Sungai Kolok, with a number of trains a day to Hat Yai and Bangkok.
Travel by train from KL to Phuket is only possible part of the way as there is no train station in Phuket, so you will have to take a train then a bus / minibus.
If you want to travel from KL to Koh Samui or Koh Phangan, again you will have to travel via Butterworth or Hat Yai.
Johor Bahru (JB Sentral)
More destinations to the South :
The same trains that go to Johor Bahru are used to travel on to Woodlands in Singapore.
From JB you can continue the short distance over the causeway to Singapore's Woodland Railway Station by one of the five minute Shuttle Trains or go by regular bus.
