If you would like to travel on the Singapore to Kuala Lumpur train, there are three KTM Intercity trains a day that operate on a daily basis, now departing from JB Sentral railway station in Johor Bahru for Kuala Lumpur's KL Sentral railway station.
For those who like to travel overnight by train there is one departure a day.
This is a great way to travel from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur as you can cheaply buy a ticket for a sleeping berth, get a good nights sleep while you travel and arrive bright and early in KL city.
Much better than a bus (in my opinion).
However, if the trains are full, please visit our online bus booking page for more travel options from Singapore to KL.
**** Please Note That : From 1st July 2015, these trains will no longer be departing from Singapore and will now depart from JB Sentral only.
A new Shuttle Train Service will now take passengers over the Causeway from Singapore to JB Sentral Station.
Shuttle Trains from Singapore to JB Sentral depart at :
06.30, 08.00, 09.30, 17.00, 18.30, 20.00, 23.00.
The trip takes just 5 minutes.
Fares are 5 SGD.
These new shuttle services are meant for commuters, so they may not connect with an Intercity train departing JB.
You may find yourselves having to take a regular bus over the border to JB Sentral (in which case, allow yourselves plenty of time as these border crossings get very congested).

For ticket prices for the above trains from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur :
If you are thinking of travelling from Singapore to Malaysia by train you can save yourself over 50% of your train fare by travelling from Johor Bahru (JB Sentral) rather than leaving from Woodlands station.
This is due to some strange rule of having to pay in Singapore Dollars the same fare as if it were Malaysian Ringgit.
So basically you pay over double the prices for your tickets purchased in Singapore, than you do if you leave from JB, just 5 minutes over the causeway and easily reached by bus.
Arriving at the large transport hub of KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur you can reach anywhere in the city by bus or city trains that depart from here.
There is also bus connections or a high speed direct train to KLIA Airport.
