The ETS TBS to Taiping train operated by KTM Berhad is a good alternative way to travel from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS Bus Station) and is the most direct and quickest way to get there.
Travelling by bus from TBS to Taiping may be cheaper, however, the train takes you directly to Taiping as the railway station is located close to the town centre.
If you are travelling by bus / coach, you will end up at either Kamunting Bus Terminal or Medan Simpang Bus Terminal (there is no long-distance bus station in Taiping town) from where you will either have to take a taxi or you if you have plenty of time, you can take a cheap local bus into town (around 6 km from both bus stations).
To take the train from TBS bus station to Taiping you will have to take the short walk to the Bandar Tasik Selatan (BTS) railway station using the elevated pedestrian bridge that connects the bus station to the train station.

As KTM now operates a Flexi Fare system for booking ETS train tickets the price varies depending on how far in advance you book your seats and if you are travelling during "Peak" or Off-Peak" times of the day, day of the week or period of the year.
When travelling by ETS train in Malaysia, all seats must be reserved and no standing passengers are allowed.
As seat numbers are limited and trains can be full during busy periods of the year, it is always advisable to book your train tickets as far in advance as you can (it is also cheaper).
