compare to last time woodlands to Jb ---> $11, now $5 is cheaper. But from JB to Singapore increased from RM3 to RM5

The crap bit is that the long-distance, intercity train to/from KL and beyond will no longer serve Woodlands. The outcome is that the shuttles and those trains don't connect properly at JB Sentral.

Shuttle Schedule
JB Sentral- Woodlands-----Woodlands-JB Sentral
0530-0535------------------0630-0636
0700-0705------------------0800-0805
0830-0835------------------0930-0935
1600-1605------------------1700-1705
1730-1735------------------1830-1835
1900-1905------------------2000-2005
2200-2205------------------2300-2305

Intercity Timings
Express Rakyat
South-Bound North-Bound
JB Sentral arr 2135 dep 0850

Sinaran Selatan
South-Bound------------------North-Bound
JB Sentral arr 1435----------dep 1620

Sutera
South-Bound------------------North-Bound
JB Sentral arr 0650----------dep 2355

Those regulars who take the inter-city between Woodlands and Malaysia get dumped and may be forced to take the public bus. The ironic thing is that the East Coast (Jungle Line) service to Kota Baru is not affected and is now the only long-distance international train coming to Singapore.

Related development. Partial resumption of the East Coast service.

Not really, I took during Apr and it was full and I had a hard time snatching for tickets. To be frank, i rather take train then squeezing with people if the timing is right. Time = Money.

And not forgetting many who want to save $ and bother to take their north-bound trains from JB instead of directly from Woodlands, anyway.

There used to a loophole that the regulars took advantage of. That was to buy a ticket for the Singapore to JB leg separately from the JB to KL portion.

So it will be very troublesome if we want to travel from Singapore to other parts of Malaysia by train? We have to ensure that we have sufficient time for connecting train and also no delay from the Singapore to JB shuttle train.

I took once many years ago from JB to Singapore. Find a waste of time. Have to wait very long before the train depart. I rather take a bus.

I should think regular trains will have a time frame between boarding and actual departure time, much like flights.

Not sure how they going to work with the shuttle trains, though.

The shuttle service has begun.

7 trips each way. Even assuming all 320 seats for each train are taken up and everybody pays in SGD, KTM still makes an enormous loss. $22400 comes no way close to covering the operations of a train for 1 day.
