KTM Komuter trains in Malaysia are the much cheaper alternative to the Electric Train Services (ETS) used on the longer distance routes.

The difference is that KTM Komuter trains stop at all the smaller stations along the route.

This makes them slightly slower than ETS trains, with the journey time from BM to Ipoh taking 1 hour and 45 minutes by KTM Komuter (compared to about an hour and a half by ETS train).

The other main difference is that the seating on KTM Komuter trains is on a first-come, first-served basis (much like a tube / subway train in the west).

If you want to gaurantee getting a seat, your only option is to take the more expensive ETS trains that run between Bukit Mertajam and Ipoh (on ETS services you get a reserved seat number allocated at the time of booking).

Where to Buy Tickets from Bukit Mertajam to Ipoh

Travelling by KTM Komuter train to Ipoh from Bukit Mertajam, you can only buy your tickets from the ticket counter at Bukit Mertajam railway station on the day of travel.

We recommend you turn up at the station at least 15 minutes before the next departure to buy your tickets, as ticket counters can get busy at peak travel times.

ETS trains have limited seat numbers (and no passenger without a reserved seat are allowed to board the train) and can be sold out many days, sometimes weeks in advance during holiday periods.
