Please note: Although the timetable above shows all trains from KLS to Ipoh, many of them are long-distance services that may be harder to purchase tickets for (KTM hold back the sales for these trains for passengers travelling on longer trips).
The trains starting with the number "90" are services on the dedicated KLS to Ipoh route and therefore tickets are available to purchase as far in advance as all other tickets on the KTM network.
The price of seats on the ETS KL to Ipoh trains vary depending on what type of train you use:
The cheapest are the Silver services followed by Gold then Platinum.
To travel on any Electric Train Service in Malaysia you will need a ticket for a reserved seat.
Once all the seats have been sold, the train is officially full and no standing passengers without a seat reservation are allowed.
So, if you want to travel on a particular train, you should book your seats in advance.
You can book advance tickets on ETS trains from any ETS railway station ticketing counter.
Train tickets in Malaysia are usually available to buy from anywhere between 2 to 3 months in advance, to as little as just a couple of weeks ahead (it all depends on when KTM release tickets for sale and if they are planning one of their regular timetable changes).
