Buy your ticket at Sentral. The ticketing hall is also where the KFC and Starbucks are. You will come across this place if you walk from the immigration control to JB City Square as most people do. The platform for boarding the train and clearing customs is right below the ticketing hall. At the Singapore side, this is the place. https://www.google.com.sg/maps/@1.44...8i6656!6m1!1e1
This is opposite the Sheng Siong at old Woodlands Town Centre.

Hi,

Can share where you buy the tickets at JB?

Where to board the train and chop passport at JB and Spore side?

thanks.
Tickets counter at JB Sentral, u will pass by this EVERY time u enter via bus and go City Square, it is where the pesky property agents gather , Press for Queue number and wait.


Den u sit here and wait for abang to open queue(right side of pic)30 minutes before printed departure time, Train leave on the dot, no announcement at all, sit inside wait, suddenly thump thump thump train move off LOL. Remember Gate A, once u go down train platform, there is no display showing train is heading for SG.


Interior of train, basically the normal KL-SG class seat.


At JB Sentral, Malaysia custom is below main concourse, once u go down, custom is there waiting. U will get passport exit stamp here. The chop is "Johor Bahru" instead of usual "Bangunan something something" .

arrived SG, after clearing SG custom will exit near sheng shiong bus-stop, good for pple with lotsa heavy shopping bag, can transfer bus straight away, less walking.

but if no heavy load, take bus easier lol

If u wanna board from Woodlands, den u buy ticket opposite Sheng Sheng, can see their office at the taxi stand, den wait along the corridor where u see the row of seats, yeah very lousy LOL. SG Custom will open queue den u go in and clear both SG and Malaysia immigration one shot, no more custom clearance at JB Sentral.

As shown in veryhungryboy's photos, what can go wrong? There is sufficient signage all round. The stand at the counter has a poster that says "Shuttle Tebrau" with the listing of train timings. At the platform level, the sign reads "Ke Singapura" with "To Singapore" in smaller print. If all fails, follow the crowd or ask someone.

The KTM website is not so friendly. Try easybook instead.

Upon purchasing, use e-ticket to board the train or still need to change for the tickets at the counter?
