To get from Kajang to Penang Island (Pulau Penang) the quickest way to travel is to take the direct ETS Kajang to Butterworth train operated by Malaysian Railways (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad - known as the shorter name of KTM or KTMB).
These trains operate on the Gemas to Butterworth ETS route (laluan), however, for more options, you could easily take a cheap KTM Komuter train to KL Sentral station first, then take a more frequent train from there to Butterworth station (Penang Sentral).
