ETS Padang Besar to KL Sentral Kuala Lumpur Train Schedule (Jadual)

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.

The duration of the train journey from Padang Besar to Kuala Lumpur Sentral is around five and a half hours for the quickest services.
