Default ETS train starts Friday

KL-Padang Besar electric trains to start running Friday

KUALA KANGSAR: The Electric Train Service (ETS) from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar will start running from Friday.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said trains would ply the northern route twice daily, with fares from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar priced at RM81.

"We have ordered 10 sets of the electric trains, and once they are ready, the frequency will increase," he added.

Liow was speaking to reporters after a test run on one of the brand new electric trains from Batu Gajah to Kuala Kangsar.

Definitely. However, KTM website seems down. Hopefully they add more trains soon.

We are newbies and need to travel from Penang to KL late August to finalize MM2H. Wanted to take the train. Does anyone know if new ETS would be available from Butterworth to KL Sentral as the old train is and how do we reserve or buy tickets? I don't see anything on the website about this
Thanks

At the moment, there is only one trip @ 5.30pm from the Butterworth station, direct to KL Sentral ~ 9pm.

The fare is Rm60 per trip.

I wanted to snap some photos of the schedule, but was a bit late as the counter was close for the open fasting.

Hi

Thanks for the information but I thought the idea if the ETS train was that it took roughly three hours? This schedule seems the same as the the regular morning departure in the website?

Thanks again

It could be due to there is only one train at the moment, hence its stopping at most of the smaller stations before reaching KL.

The departure and arrival time seems awkwardly wrong.

I prefer to arrive KL early in the morning & get my business done.

That ETS schedule is wasting 3 days of my time

Rodi, my bad, the arrival time should be as follows

Butterworth - KL Sentral (depart 5:23pm, arrive 9:15pm)
KL Sentral - Butterworth (depart 9:30am, arrive 1:13pm)
