The Shuttle Timur is a series of popular daily services along the East Coast Line or more popularly known overseas as the Jungle Line between Kuala Lipis and Tumpat. It travels through the dense tropical rainforest of Malaysia, offering easy access for locals staying at kampungs in the eastern states of Pahang and Kelantan.
The Shuttle Timur stops at all stations and halts along the line, with low fares to cater to the needs of the locals as the main mean of transport in the region. All trains are free-seating and reservations are not possible nor necessary – just turn up and buy a ticket.
Due to to zero popularity (ie. 1 click on average per day), and even complains at times, RailTravel Station’s integrated timetables are no longer available.
