The new Electric Train Service (ETS) started operating from September 2015 on the route between KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth in the state of Penang.
These ETS Gold and Platinum Services are limited stop trains and are now the quickest way to travel from KL to Penang Island (Pulau Pinang), with the historic city of Georgetown located just a short ferry ride away from Butterworth Railway Station (Penang Sentral).
