ETS Padang Besar to KL Sentral Train Schedule

The ETS Padang Besar to KL Sentral train station in Kuala Lumpur started operating in early July 2015 and is now one of the main routes for the new high-speed ETS Train Services in Malaysia. 

These new services have now completely replaced all the old slower Intercity services in this part of the country.



Travelling on the ETS train cuts the travel time in half compared to the older and much slower Intercity Express Trains that used to run on this route, but unfortunately this means the popular night sleeper train is no longer operating.
