On this page you will find links to all the KTM Kuala Lumpur train times and fares for all the popular tourist destinations on Peninsular Malaysia that are linked by the KTM Berhad Railways system.
All trains depart from Kuala Lumpur old train station (Terminal KTM / stesen keretapi Kuala Lumpur) as well as KL's transport hub and the main, modern railway station in the city, KL Sentral Station.
KL's old railway station is just a few minutes by train from KL Sentral Station and now all ETS Trains stop here.
You can also connect to the nearby Pasar Seni LRT / MRT railway station by a recently built pedestrian link bridge opened in November 2019.
From Pasar Seni station, you can connect to LRT trains on the Kelana Jaya Line or MRT trains on the SBK Line.
You can also use this new bridge to easily get from KTM Kuala Lumpur to Chinatown with the walk to Petaling Street taking around 10 minutes.

KTM Train Schedule change from May 2016:
From this date, all KTMB Intercity Trains will no longer be operating from the KTM Kuala Lumpur Station.
All long-distance services on the new dual-track between Gemas and Padang Besar will now be operated by ETS Trains only.
If you wish to travel south of Gemas (ie JB Sentral / Singapore) you will first have to catch an ETS Train to Gemas, then connect with a new Shuttle Train or Intercity Train from there.
If you want to travel to Hat Yai from Kuala Lumpur by train, you will have to catch an ETS Train to Padang Besar, then either catch a Shuttle Train to Hat Yai or continue by local bus.
Replacing the older Intercity services are the new high-speed ETS Trains which will get you to Butterworth in half the time compared to the old Express Trains.
If you are planning to travel from KL to George Town on Penang Island, the Butterworth Ferry Terminal is is just a short walk away from Butterworth Railway Station.
