The Ekspres Rakyat is currently no longer in operation. There is currently no through train service between JB Sentral and KL Sentral.
The Ekspres Rakyat was a popular daily service between JB Sentral and Butterworth via KL Sentral. Since its inception in 1977, the Ekspres Rakyat had been running daily under KTM. Originally operating with Economy Class coaches only, it received the then-modern Eksekutif Dingin, before changing to the current Hyundai coaches in 1992. It plied the Bukit Mertajam – Johor Bahru route before being extended to Butterworth and Singapore (Tanjong Pagar), before it was truncated to ply between KL Sentral and Singapore only due to the Rawang – Ipoh Double Tracking Project. It restarted services north of KL in 2007 to Ipoh, before plying the entire original route back to Butterworth in 2008. It was ultimately truncated from Singapore to Woodlands CIQ on 1 July 2011.
The Ekspres Rakyat ran for the last time on 8 May 2016.

Links attached are no longer hosted on Google Drive as RailTravel Station is too often confused with the timetable provider instead of KTM. Should the links be down, it is on KTM’s servers and not on mine.
Pautan yang dilampirkan tidak lagi didapati di Google Drive kerana ramai yang terkeliru bahawa RailTravel Station adalah KTM. Sekiranya pautan tersebut tidak lagi berfungsi, ia disebabkan oleh server KTM sendiri dan bukannya kami.
