A three-hour Electric Train Service (ETS) linking Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth will be operational in June next year, The Star reported. There will be a total of ten new coach sets running by January 2016, but three sets will begin their run on the KL-Butterworth route in June 2015.

The operation is to link Padang Besar to Kuala Lumpur, and for now, discussions were still being held on whether the service would transport passengers directly from Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth or mid-way from Ipoh.

Three coach sets will begin to operate the Kuala Lumpur-Butterworth route in June, and the other seven will operate in stages by January 2016.
