As the dual electrified railway line has yet to be completed between JB and Gemas, you will first have to take another Shuttle Train service from JB to Gemas or Tampin.

Once you arrive in Gemas, you then have to change trains for the newer and much faster Electric Train Services (ETS).

You can also connect to KTM Komuter Trains if you take the Shuttle all the way to Tampin.

The big advantage of taking the train from Singapore to Malaysia is that the immigration process at Woodlands Train Checkpoint is much quicker here than at all the other border crossings (which are well known for their congestion problems), making it the best way to travel from Singapore to Malaysia (in our opinion).
