ETS Padang Besar Gemas Timetable (Jadual)

A new high-speed Electric Train Service (ETS) from Padang Besar to Gemas started operating from the 10th October 2015, travelling all the way from the Malaysian / Thailand border station, through Perlis, Kedah, Perak, Kuala Lumpur and then on to the state of Negeri Sembilan.

These ETS Trains are limited stopping Gold Services, with a trip duration of just over 8and a half hours to get to Gemas, where the double electrified tracks currently end.

Buying ETS Train Tickets

You can buy your tickets from any Malaysian mainline station in advance (booking periods vary from a few weeks to a few months in advance, depending on when KTM release them and when they publish a new schedule).

If you are staying in Thailand and want to book your KTM tickets in advance, you can easily do this online from the KTM website or through an online ticket agent.
