Johor Bahru Sentral railway station Panorama, Malaysia

Johor Bahru Sentral (also known as JB Sentral) is a Malaysian integrated transport hub located at Bukit Chagar between Jalan Tun Abdul Razak and Jalan Jim Quee in the heart of Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

Inaugurated on 21 October 2010, it replaced the closed Johor Bahru railway station located 200m south of it. As part of the Southern Integrated Gateway, it is connected to the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex. It also connected to Johor Bahru City Square shopping center by pedestrian overhead bridges.

Johor Bahru Sentral also is the southern terminus of KTM Intercity train services to Gemas and Pulau Sebang/Tampin via Ekspres Selatan or Tumpat via Ekspres Rakyat Timuran. KTM Intercity via Shuttle Tebrau also serves the Woodlands Train Checkpoint in Singapore across the Johor–Singapore Causeway. However, an electric train connection at Gemas is required for passenger to KL Sentral, Butterworth and Padang Besar.

Johor Bahru Sentral serves as the Malaysian immigration checkpoint for southbound rail passengers towards Woodlands. Northbound rail passengers from Woodlands are processed by Malaysian immigration and customs officers at Woodlands Train Checkpoint prior to boarding.

Johor Bahru Sentral is planned to be the main hub for rail and bus transportation in Johor Bahru. It is proposed to be the main station of KTM ETS, KTM Komuter South, Transit Bus Terminal and will be connected to the future Bukit Chagar RTS and JB Sentral BRT stations.
