If you would like to make an advance booking for any of these trains, you can :
Once you reach Butterworth Station, if you are heading over to George Town on the island of Penang, the ferry terminal is just a few minutes walk away.
The ferry trip over to George Town Jetty takes just 15 minutes and ferries depart every 15 -20 minutes.
Once you arrive on the island, you are in the old part of the city and most accommodation can easily be reached within 10 - 15 minutes walk.
Alternatively, as you leave the ferry terminal, the Jetty bus terminal is on both your left and right.
You can catch a bus to any part of the city or to other places on the island, such as the beaches at Batu Ferringhi.
If you are not travelling over to Penang island, the train station is also next to the Butterworth bus station, so you can catch a bus to anywhere in Peninsular Malaysia.
