KUALA LUMPUR APRIL 20th 2015: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) will start operation in July 2015.
As press time, there is no information yet on fare and schedule. Since Kuala Lumpur – Ipoh route is fairly expensive in comparison with regular KTM Intercity service, the new ETS Ipoh – Padang Besar route is expected to charge similarly hefty price for a ticket.
The first ETS service from Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh commenced operation in August 12th 2010.
