Like all Electric Train Services you will need to book a seat.
If there are any seats available on the day, you can book tickets just before the departure,
However, trains in Malaysia can often operate full, especially at weekends and holiday periods, so it is alway best to make an advance booking.
Tickets can be available up to a couple of months in advance, but the booking period varies depending on when KTM decide to release the tickets.
To book your seats in advance you can either visit any KTM railway station ticket counter, or much more simply, you can book tickets in advance online directly from KTM or from an online ticketing agent.
