Johor Bahru Sentral (also known as JB Sentral) is a Malaysian inter-city railway station located 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 both the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex and Johor Bahru City Square shopping center by pedestrian overhead bridges.

Johor Bahru Sentral is the southern terminus of KTM Intercity train services between the station and various destinations in Malaysia such as Butterworth, Gemas, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Tumpat. A shuttle train service links Johor Bahru Sentral to Woodlands Train Checkpoint in Woodlands, Singapore across the Johor–Singapore Causeway.

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 main hub for rail transportation in Johor Bahru. It is proposed to be the main station of Johor Bahru–Singapore Rapid Transit System, KTM Komuter South and the future Singapore-Johor Bahru Rapid Transit System link between Johor Bahru and Woodlands, Singapore.
