The following information is now out of date ::::::

The Langkawi Express night train no longer takes the branch line to Butterworth, so it no longer passes Bukit Mertajam, so now the only Intercity Train that goes to Bukit Mertajam is the Rayak Express that operates between JB Sentral and Butterworth.

You could use other Intercity trains to travel to Parit Buntar, then catch one of the new KTM Komuter Utara Trains that run between Kamunting in Perak and Gurun in Kedah, stopping at Bukit Mertajam.
