KLIA Transit Train from KL Sentral to Bandar Tasik Selatan
KLIA Transit is the all-stop airport rail link train service between KL Sentral and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Continuing on from my KTM MySawasdee 1005dn train from Hat Yai to catch my midnight bus to Singapore from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS), I used KLIA Transit as it offers a fast late-night train service, and the 11.33pm train was fitting just nicely in between my 2 intercity connections.
The KLIA Transit station at KL Sentral is at the main concourse.
I purchased my ticket on the KLIA Ekspres App for a 10% discount. My KLIA Transit fare from KL Sentral to Bandar Tasik Selatan when purchased on the KLIA Ekspres App costs RM5.90, as compared with the normal fare of RM6.50 if purchased from the counter or kiosk, or using Touch ‘n Go Card or Visa payWave on the ticket gates.

There is an air-conditioned waiting room at the KLIA Transit island platform.
My KLIA Transit train arrived at KL Sentral at 10.57pm as a passenger service train coming from KLIA T1 and T2. This train will immediately u-turn to form my 11.03pm train.

The interior of the KLIA Transit CRRC Changchun Equator EMU with new purple KLIA Transit seat covers, similar to the Siemens Desiro ET 425 M, more resistant to stain marks now.
Single seats are available in the middle of the train car to allow for more standing room in the middle.
As this late-night train was quite empty, I got a bay of 4 seats to myself easily up front.

There is also a 3-pin power socket in my bay of 4 seats which was a good rescue to my phone after my KTM MySawasdee 1005dn train journey from Hat Yai, and before the midnight bus journey to Singapore. The limited power sockets available on board the KTM MySawasdee 1005dn train were rationed between passengers.
My 11.33pm train ran quite empty, and understandably so with the late-night departure.
It was not a great view out of the window since it was late at night already.

The KLIA Transit will continue on to KLIA T2, stopping at all stations along the way.
The sole escalator was downriding, so those who want an automated transfer up to the link bridge had to take the lift. Otherwise, climbing up the staircase is also possible.
