Rather than taking a bus from Penang Sentral to TBS, another quicker way to get there is to take either a direct ETS Butterworth to TBS train, or you can take one of the more frequent Butterworth to KL Sentral ETS services, then take a short trip on a KTM Komuter or KLIA Transit train to TBS bus terminal (via the connecting Bandar Tasik Selatan railway station).

With so few direct trains currently operating to TBS from Butterworth station, another way to get to TBS from Penang is to take a much more frequent ETS train from Butterworth to KL Sentral Railway Station in Kuala Lumpur.
From KL Sentral, you can then transfer to either a cheap KTM Komuter (commuter) train to Bandar Tasik Selatan (18 minutes journey) or take a non-stop but more expensive KLIA Transit train.

When you travel by ETS train in Malaysia you get a reserved seat and carriage number and no standing passengers are allowed on board the train.
As ETS train services are a popular way to get around the country, they can frequently be full during busy holiday periods, religious festivals and weekends, so you should plan ahead and book your tickets in advance (the further in advance the better).
To book advance ETS train tickets for departures from Butterworth you can:
Go to the ticket counter upstairs at the Butterworth Railway Station.
If you are staying on Penang island, there is no need to go over to the mainland at Butterworth to buy ETS tickets, as there is a small KTM ticket office located along the walkway up to the jetty where the ferry from Georgetown to Butterworth departs.
Another, much easier way to book your advance train tickets is to book KTM tickets online directly from the official KTM Berhad website >
