The only time i took a train to KL was because all the buses were full (i think it was chinese new year time) and I took the overnight train and slept all the way which made the 10hr journey much more bearable and you get the full day ahead of you the next day.

Where do they stop in KL?

there are many executive coaches in the market now esp the Singapore & KL route and aeroline is my favourite due to its drop off point/location.

aero stops at various locations https://www.aeroline.com.sg/contactus.html
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live the questions now... Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live... into the answer ~Rainer Maria Rilke~

I personally preferred Transtar over aeroline. It has first class and vip class. I took the double-decker transtar to KL last year. Every seat is fitted with 6 massage selection, personal tft screen with movies and games.

I took the ride from Singapore @ Golden Mile complex to KL ( sorry , forgotten the name of the KL station but I can see Petronas Tower nearby ) . There are other rides as well : grassland, five star, konsortium etc.

Google them if you may.

the bus has improved a lot and so much choice and location for pick up and drop off, but the train.... hmmmm... that's another story.
