The KTM Padang Rengas Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Padang Rengas) lies on the KTMB Malaysia North - South Line in the state of Perak and offers regular Komuter Train Services northbound to Bukit Mertajam and Butterworth Penang.
As of 1/2/2017, the ETS long distance services no longer stop here.
Panang Rengas Train Station is the last stop on the new Komuter Utara Service from Bukit Mertajam (BM) in Penang State.
These regular trains run up and down to BM, where you can change onto the Butterworth to Padang Besar Komuter Services to travel further north all the way to the Malaysia - Thailand border at Padang Besar.
These services used to run to Butterworth Penang, but now most terminate at Bukit Mertajam, so if you want to travel from Padang Rengas to Butterworth by train, you will have to change at BM (apart from just a few services).
KTM Komuter Train services stop at the following stations from Padang Rengas (from south to north) :
Taiping, Kamunting, Bagan Serai, Parit Buntar, Nibong Tebal, Simpang Ampat and Bukit Mertajam.
Change trains at Bukit Mertajam for services to Bukit Tengah, Butterworth, Tasek Gelugor, Sungai Petani, Gurun, Kobh, Alor Setar, Anak Bukit, Kodiang, Arau, Bukit Ketri and Padang Besar (Thai border).
From Padang Besar you can continue into Thailand on SRT Shuttle Trains to Hat Yai or the International Express to Bangkok.
The high speed KTMB Electric Train Service (ETS) now no longer stops here.
If you want to travel to Padang Rengas by ETS services from the south, you will have to take an ETS Train to Kuala Kangsar (where all ETS services stop), then take a Komuter Service from there to Padang Rengas.
Travelling from the north, take an ETS to Taiping, then a Komuter train to Padang Rengas
