ETS Gemas Padang Besar Schedule (Jadual KTM) Train Fare

The Electric Train Service (ETS) operates from Gemas to Padang Besar, the border station between Malaysia and Thailand.

This fast train service travels at speeds of up to 140 km (in service) from the state of Negeri Sembilan, south of Kuala Lumpur, to the small north western state of Perlis.

You can use this service to travel from the south of Malaysia to get to places like Langkawi Island via either Alor Setar Station or Arau Station, both just a short trip away from the ports that operate regular ferry services out to Langkawi.

If you want to go all the way into Thailand, you can cross the main land border close to the Padang Besar Railway Station and either get a taxi to Hat Yai or a local bus or stay the night in Padang Besar (more accommodation is available on the Thailand side of the border).

There are also new shuttle trains to Hat Yai, or you can connect with the International Express Train from Padang Besar to Bangkok.

Buy Tickets

(Beli Tiket)

To make advance booking for these ETS Trains, you can buy your tickets in advance from any mainline KTMB Malaysian railways station (booking periods can vary quite considerably from just a couple of weeks, to a few months in advance).

If you don't get a chance to visit a station, you can easily book you train tickets in Malaysia online.

The KTM official website has an online booking facility, where you can book your tickets online for the same price as you would pay at the station ticket counters.

Alternatively, you can use an online ticket agent (often a much easier booking process), but there is a small admin fee to pay.
