Buying Train Tickets to Arau

As Komuter trains are like subway / Tube trains you get in the west, there is no need to plan ahead and book tickets in advance (like you have to do for ETS trains).

Just go to the ticket counter at Butterworth Station (located upstairs), buy a ticket to Arau, then take the next northbound Komuter train heading towards Padang Besar.

Please note: You can't buy KTM Komuter tickets from the KTM office in Georgetown - This office sells ETS / Intercity tickets only.
