From the 19th May 2016, travel by train from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore Woodlands will involve three trains, as all Intercity daytime and sleeper trains from this date have been cancelled on the North - South Railway Line.
With the new KTMB train timetable from 19/5/2016, trains from KL Sentral Station are now only operated by high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS).
These ETS Express Trains can only go as far as Gemas (where the dual electrified track ends).
From Gemas to JB Sentral in Johor Bahru, you now have to travel on one of the new Shuttle Trains.
From JB Sentral to Singapore Woodlands, you will also have to change to the Shuttle Trains that operate this 5 minute journey.
How many hours this takes depends on the connection at JB.
The connecting trains at Gemas are timed to connect with the the arrival of the ETS services, while the Shuttle from JB to SG is not, so you may want to consider taking a bus for the last part to Singapore.
If you would now prefer to catch a direct bus from KL to Singapore
