KTM Train from Johor Bahru to Gemas

If you want to travel by train from Johor Bahru to Gemas you will have to take one of the older Intercity or new Shuttle trains, as this part of the line has not yet been upgraded to the Electrified Double Tracking that has already taken place on the North - South Line, north of Gemas.

Once you are at Gemas, you can take one of the new high speed Electric Train Services (ETS) that now originate from Gemas Railway Station.

These ETS Trains can take you all the way to the border with Thailand at Padang Besar, with stops at many tourist destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Penang (via Butterworth) or Langkawi (via Alor Setar or Arau) and many other smaller stops along this route.

Booking online can be done via the KTMB website or using an online tickets agent (using an agent is a far more simple booking process).
