KTM Johor Bahru Melaka Train Timetables and Fares

Travel between Johor Bahru and Melaka (Malacca) on the KTM Johor Bahru Melaka Train, requires you to travel to the nearest station to Melaka, Tampin (also called Pulau Sebang), then continue your journey by taxi or local public bus.

From May 2016 and the cancellation of all long-distance diesel Intercity Express Trains on the West Coast Line (North-South Line) north of Gemas, you will now have to take a Shuttle Train from JB Sentral to Tampin.

These Shuttle services will begin operating again from December 2017.

Travelling by train from JB Sentral Train Station to Melaka is an interesting way to go, but to be honest, at the moment you are much better off catching a direct bus from Johor Bahru to Melaka Sentral Bus Station.
