Buying Tickets

You can purchase your tickets at the station or at the KTM Ticket Office located at Penang Jetty (on the walkway up to the Penang to Butterworth Ferry).

If you wish to book in advance, it is easier and sometimes cheaper to book your tickets through an online agent, rather than use the KTMB booking website.

Once you reach Ipoh, you have the choice of many of the older ETS Trains that operate between Ipoh and KL Sentral Railway Station in Kuala Lumpur.
