The KTMB Website Train Booking Process

Once you land on the KTMB website you can just check fares or make a booking.

If it is your first time using the booking service you will have to create a new account first before you are allowed to buy your tickets.

It is fairly easy to set up an account and if you plan on using this service again, make sure you make a note of your user name and password.

Once you are in the booking system you select your departure station, then arrival station, date and then you are given a choice (if available) of the trains operating on that particular route.

Select the train service you want and then the seating / berths options will appear for that particular train.

Choose your seat / bed then continue with the rest of the booking formalities.
