KTM Train from Gemas to JB Sentral Johor Bahru
Schedule (Jadual) and Ticket Prices

From the 19th May 2016, travel by train from Gemas to JB Sentral Railway Station has been rescheduled, with a new set of Shuttle Trains replacing the Intercity Trains that used to run on this route.

These Shuttle services will operate until the new Dual High-speed Rail Track has been completed in this part of Malaysia.

Gemas Railway Station is currently the furthest point south that the new high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS) operate, as the electrified dual track ends here (the last section to Johor Bahru has yet to be completed).

So, if you are travelling by train from the north of Malaysia to places south of Gemas (ie Johor and Singapore) you will have to disembark your ETS Train here, then connect to one of the new Shuttle / Intercity Trains from Gemas southbound.
