[ETS] Ipoh – KL Sentral – KLIA2 / KLIA (Train Schedule & Fares)

Quite a number of people wrote in to me asking about the new electric train service (ETS) that gives passengers from Ipoh a smooth transit to KLIA2 or KLIA to catch a flight.

Getting out of the country has always been a problem for Ipoh folks because we do not have an international airport, you see, and so far, people have relied heavily on express coaches if they wanted to travel to countries other than Singapore and Indonesia. These new ETS packages will be good alternatives.

I went to the ETS office in Ipoh just now. For those of you who are unsure where to buy electric train tickets in Ipoh, just go to the Ipoh railway station. ETS shares the same building as KTMB.

With this post, I have included a scanned copy of the train schedule and fares for people interested to go to KLIA2 or KLIA from Ipoh. First, hop on the electric train (ETS) at the Ipoh railway station and then transit at KL Sentral by taking the KLIA Transit (rapid transit service) to proceed to KLIA2 or KLIA Ekspres (high speed train service) to proceed to KLIA.

Currently, total fare from Ipoh to KLIA2 is RM42.50 per adult and RM25 per child. Total fare from Ipoh to KLIA is RM65 per adult and RM34 per child. Fares are valid until the 6-month ETS promotion expires on 28th February, 2011.

  1. There are three alternatives to take.

    1. From LCCT, take a bus to KL Sentral. Then proceed to Pudu Sentral on a van or LRT (to Pasar Seni LRT station). From Pudu Sentral, take an express bus to Medan Gopeng, Ipoh.

    2. From LCCT, take a bus to KL Sentral. Then take a train from KL Sentral to Ipoh Railway Station. From Ipoh Railway Station, take a cab to Medan Gopeng, Ipoh.

    Take down this number of an Ipoh radio taxi operator:
    BK Radio Taxi: 05-2534188
    Operating hours from 7.30am to 11.30pm daily.

  2. 3. Star Shuttle has a bus service plying LCCT – KLIA – Medan Gopeng – Bercham, Ipoh.

    One way ticket from LCCT to Medan Gopeng, Ipoh is RM42.

    Return ticket is RM75.

    Their office number in Ipoh is +605-3135989, +6019-5550922 or +6012-5548030.

  3. Hi Emily,

    “Total fare from Ipoh to KLIA is RM65 per adult and RM34 per child” which means the fare is for Klia-kl sentral-ipoh? Do you have any idea of charges for baby (under 1 year)?

  4. Hi Emily,
    I will be arriving in Malaysia ( LCCT airport) with my family.
    Just wondering is there a train I can take from LCCT to ipoh?
    Every time i took the bus and it was just too long, and taxi is expensive.

  5. thanks, What do you recommend? Bus or the train?
    Especially when I will be taking a 8 hour flight from australia.

  6. hi, do u mean from kl sentral – LCCT is by train? Then from LCCT – Kl sentral is by train or not?

  7. Hi Emily,

    Thanks so much for sharing all these info and tips.

    We will be going to Ipoh next month and am wondering if it is possible to hire a taxi from KLIA direct to Ipoh? Should we just get a taxi at KLIA airport or prebook one from Ipoh?

    Any info much appreciated!


  8. Hi Emily, Can u advise the link for me to book a train ticket from Ipoh to KL airport ? Appreciate your response. Thank you

  9. Hi Lim,

    There is no direct train from Ipoh to KLIA. What you have to do is take the train from Ipoh to KL Sentral (via ETS), and then another train (KLIA Express) to KLIA.

    Start from this website: http://www.ktmb.com.my/

    I haven’t booked a ticket online personally, and can’t say whether it works well or not.

    I always advise friends to just take the Ipoh – KLIA bus. It’s a lot more convenient.
