KTM Taiping Train Schedules

The KTM Taiping Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Taiping) is located on the KTMB (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad) Malaysian Railways, North - South Line, which travels the length of West Peninsular Malaysia, from Singapore to the Thai border at Padang Besar.

Taiping is located in the state of Perak and was home to the first railway station in the country, built here back in 1885.

That station is long gone and now a new train station in Taiping hosts an ever increasing number of high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS Trains) and Komuter Trains.

The older and slower diesel Intercity Express Trains are now all cancelled in this part of the country.

Taiping ETS Trains

The new ETS routes started operating from the 10th July 2015 and now you can travel to and from Taiping by high-speed train as far as Gemas to the south and Padang Besar station to the north (on the border with Thailand).

These new trains have cut the travel time quite considerably compared to the Intercity Express Trains and more and more services have been added since they started.

As Taiping station is a fairly major stop on the railway line, all ETS Gold Services and ETS Platinum Services stop here.

If you want to travel by ETS from Taiping to places like Butterworth Penang, Alor Setar and Arau (for ferry connections to Langkawi) or up to Thailand :
