ETS services are the latest trains on KTM’s network, running at a maximum speed of 160km/h (140km/h operational speed) on electrified double track sectors between Gemas and Padang Besar. Though often seen as a separate service, ETS operates under KTM Intercity, and tickets can be bought from any KTM Intercity counters throughout the network.

Train services are classified as follows:

The ETS classes are classified by speed and number of stops rather than seating classes. All trains have similar seats and services on board including TV, power sockets, washrooms and a bistro area for food and beverages.

A ride between Sentral Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth on the fastest ETS Platinum service can take just 3 hours and 35 minutes, and between Sentral Kuala Lumpur and Padang Besar, just 4 hours and 55 minutes.
