Train to Ipoh - KTM Komuter - ETS Schedule (Jadual) 2024

Taking the KTM train to Ipoh in the state of Perak, Malaysia, is the best way to travel to this interesting town, as the Ipoh Railway Station (stesen keretapi Ipoh) is located in the "old town," and an easy 10 to 15 minutes walk to hotels and budget accommodation close to the main tourist sights of the city.

Please note: From September 2023 the KTM Komuter Utara (Northern Commuter) train service was extended to Ipoh.

If you travel by bus to Ipoh, you will be arriving at the Amanjaya Bus Terminal, which is approximately 10 km away from the old town, requiring you to either take a local bus to town, or a much more expensive expensive taxi.
