Below you will find a table of all the Penang, Butterworth ETS fares for services on the new high-speed trains that operate on the Butterworth - KL Sentral - Gemas route.
Please note : Following the cancellation of ETS services between Butterworth and Padang Besar, you will now have to travel on the KTM Komuter Trains between Penang and the Thai border station of Padang Besar.
These services are much cheaper then the ETS Trains and more regular with departures every one to two hours during the daytime and evenings.
You can also use these cheap commuter services to travel south (via Bukit Mertajam) as far as Padang Rengas.
Butterworth station is serviced by two different types of ETS Train service :
ETS Platinum Trains are the quickest as they only stop at the main stations along the route.
ETS Gold Trains offer cheaper seats and take a little longer as they stop at more of the smaller stations along the route.
