Trains from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru

The quickest way to travel from KL to JB by train is to first take one of the new, fast, Electric Train Services (ETS) from KL Sentral Railway Station to Gemas.

At Gemas the new dual tracks end, so you will have to take a connecting Shuttle train for the last leg down to Johor state, terminating at JB Sentral Station.

Please note: from the 18th of December 2017, two of the Shuttle services now originate from Tampin station, so you could take the ETS from KL to Tampin rather than from Gemas.

It is also possible to travel from KL Sentral to Tampin by KTM Komuter services.


Trains from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur

Travelling in the other direction from JB to KL by train, you will first have to take the Shuttle services to Gemas or Tampin, then connect to the ETS services from either of those stations.
