KTM Kuala Lumpur Ipoh Train
(Intercity & ETS)

There are three Express Kuala Lumpur Ipoh Train services a day in either direction operated by KTM Intercity.

There are also many more faster Electric Train Services (ETS) every day that operate on this route.

The trip takes between three and four hours on the older Intercity trains and 2 hours 20 - 35 minutes on the high-speed ETS trains.

Travelling by train between Ipoh and KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur is a pleasant way to journey between the two cities and much more interesting than just travelling along the highway, as all buses do.
