Starting from October 2015, there is a new high-speed Electric Train Service running between Butterworth (Penang Sentral), to the town of Gemas in Negeri Sembilan.
This will make Gemas the southern most point for the new ETS Train services, with the final section on Malaysia's North - South Line, between Gemas and Johor Bahru, yet to have the electrified double track laid.

Train tickets in Malaysia become available for sale as and when KTM decide to release them.
This can be a few months in advance or just a few weeks in advance, depending on timetable changes (which are fairly frequent).
Tickets can either be booked directly from any mainline KTMB Railway Station or online.
Booking ETS tickets online, you have a choice of booking direct from the KTMB official website or by using an online ticket agent (a much easier booking process).
To book your tickets either way click here to visit our booking page >
If you are staying in George Town on Penang Island, you can take a walk down to the jetty where the ferry leaves for Butterworth, where you will find a small KTM Ticket Office open from Monday to Saturday.
Here you can buy your ETS train tickets, saving you a journey over to the mainland.
