Travelling on this route, it is advisable to make an advance booking for seats, as if you wait until the last minute and try to buy a ticket on the day of departure, you may find the trains full.
This is especially true during, weekends, public and religious holidays and school holidays as many people head off to Penang for the weekend / holidays.
Train tickets in Malaysia usually go on sale 60 days in advance, but recently KTM seem to release tickets for sale between two weeks and two / three months in advance.
Advance tickets can be booked from any KTMB ticketing counter, at any mainline station.
Or, you can book train tickets online (for the same price) and save yourself the hassle and cost of travelling out to the station.
