From the 19th May 2016, travel by train from Gemas to JB Sentral Railway Station has been rescheduled, with a new set of Shuttle Trains replacing the Intercity Trains that used to run on this route.
Gemas Railway Station is currently the furthest point south that the new high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS) operate, as the electrified dual track ends here (the last section to Johor Bahru has yet to be completed).
So, if you are travelling by train from the north of Malaysia to places south of Gemas (ie Johor and Singapore) you will have to disembark your ETS Train here, then connect to one of the new Shuttle / Intercity Trains from Gemas southbound.
New Timetable from 19th May 2016 :
|Train Number / Name||Departure Time||Arrival Time|
All trains depart daily.
If you are continuing on to Singapore by train :
The cost of the Shuttle Train from Gemas to Johor Bahru's JB Sentral Station cost :
2nd Class Superior Seat :
Adult : 21 MYR - Child : 15 MYR
The Intercity Express Train 27 also has 2nd Class Seats as well as 2nd Class Sleeping Berths which cost a little bit more and offer more space.
Lower Berth :
Adult : 33 MYR - Child : 27 MYR
Upper Berth :
Adult : 27 MYR - Child : 21 MYR
If you are coming from the north to connect to the Gemas to JB train, you can buy your tickets at the same time as you buy your ETS tickets to Gemas.
If you want to guarantee a seat to JB Sentral, we advise you to book in advance as early as possible.
This is easily done from any mainline KTM railway station or online, up to 60 days in advance.
Booking online, you can use the official KTMB website or an online ticketing agent.
Either way, there is a small admin fee to add to the counter price of the ticket.
