The KTM Kodiang Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Kodiang) lies in the state of Kedah, Malaysia and is located along the KTMB North -South Line.
The station is served by regular KTM Komuter Trains (commuter trains) as well as being a minor stop for the fast Electric Train Services (ETS).
The new Komuter route between Butterworth Railway Station in Penang and Padang Besar Railway Station in Perlis, started operating in early 2016 and now there are many trains a day that operate regularly back and forth.
Travelling south to Butterworth, the trip by KTM Komuter takes one hour 25 minutes and stops at :
Heading north the train terminates at the Thai - Malaysia border station of Padang Besar at stops at :
Komuter Trains depart Kodiang every hour during the early morning and evening rush hours, then every two hours at other less busy times of the day.
You will firstly have to take the train to Bukit Mertajam, then change there for services further south.
At present, only one fast Electric Train Service (ETS) stops at Kodiang on its route from KL Sentral Station in Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar.
A much better option would be to firstly take a Komuter Train to to the next station south, Anak Bukit, then take any of the ETS Trains from there, as all ETS Trains stop there.
All tickets for the Komuter services are only sold on the day of travel so there is no need to book. Just turn up at the station and buy a ticket for the next departure.
If you wish to travel on the high-speed ETS Trains from Kodiang or nearby Anak Bukit, then advance booking is always recommended as these trains can often be full during busy holiday periods and weekends.
Tickets go on sale 60 days in advance and can be purchased from any mainline KTMB Railway Station ticketing counter.
