Shuttle (JB Sentral – Gemas)

IMPORTANT: This page has been simplified as there is no logical train connections with the timetable update effective 18 December 2017 and that existing local and express buses may potentially offer better connections than the infrequent and illogical timings of the Shuttle (JB Sentral – Gemas – Pulau Sebang (Tampin)).

You are advised against taking the Shuttle (JB Sentral – Gemas – Pulau Sebang (Tampin)) effective 18 December 2017.

The Shuttle is a series of daily local services between JB Sentral and Gemas, stopping at all stations en route. It travels along the unelectrified, single track line in the south to connect to and from ETS services running at higher speeds on the double track sectors to other central and northern destinations. This train serves the southern state of Johor, only entering Negeri Sembilan at Gemas as the station is located within the said state.

As with all Shuttle trains, there is no catering on board. However, express fares are charged as reserved seating is provided for the Shuttle as it is treated as a relay train for ETS services to and from Gemas, even though ticket conditions say otherwise.

The Shuttle (JB Sentral – Gemas) was previously known as the Ekspres Selatan.
