The Shuttle Tebrau 72up is the first train of the day from Woodlands CIQ, Singapore to Johor Bahru Sentral, Malaysia, departing daily at 8.45am. With a flight to catch from JB Senai International Airport this morning, I decided to get the first train up to avoid any traffic jams and to give myself plenty of time to catch my AirAsia flight to Kuching.
With the new KTM Shuttle Tebrau Ticketing System, tickets can be produced directly from a printout or from your phone. There is no need to reprint your ticket at the Shuttle Tebrau ticket counter any more.
