The Shuttle 44 & 45 between JB Sentral and Gemas.

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.

If you are commuting between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, you should seriously consider taking the bus instead, unless you wish to experience the train journey as the destination itself.
