This very useful feature became available with the latest version of Google Maps. This will come in handy especially if you have to leave very early to catch a bus, train or flight or if you are still out late and want to know wheter the LRT or Monorail is still operating.
At moment it shows the times of the following train lines (the abbreviation in front is the one used in Google Maps):
- KMUTER - KTM Komuter (local train serving the Klang Valley area)
- ERL - EX - This is the KLIA Express train, the train that directly connects KL Sentral to KLIA without stopping
