If you want to travel on the new fast train from Kuala Lumpur to Sungai Petani in Kedah state, you can now take the high-speed Electric Train Services from KL Sentral Railway Station (or the old Kuala Lumpur Train Station - Terminal KTM - trains leave from here around five minutes later then the times shown below).
You have a choice of the slightly faster Platinum ETS services (the most expensive trains), or you can take one of the more frequent ETS Gold services.
The quickest trains take about four hours and 20 minutes to make the trip - much faster than bus / coach services on this route.
