ETS Padang Besar to Alor Setar Train Schedule (Jadual)

If you want to travel on the ETS Train from Padang Besar to Alor Setar in Kedah, there are a number of both Gold and Platinum services every day.

This short trip by the new Electric Train Service takes around 40 minutes.

Please Note : You can now also travel from Pdg. Besar to Alor Setar by the much cheaper KTM Komuter Trains that operate regular services every one or two hours apart, travelling between the Thai border and Butterworth in Penang.

The difference is :

ETS Trains stop at less stations and you are allocated a seat.

Komuter trains stop at every station and seats are on a first come first served basis, so you may have to stand if the trains are really busy.

This is usually not a problem most of the time and we would recommend you use the Komuter Trains on this short route.

Tickets for this short trip will cost :

ETS Gold : 16 MYR for Adults - 12 MYR for Children.

ETS Platinum : 19 MYR for Adults - 14 MYR for Children.

If you compare these ticket prices with the KTM Komuter ticket prices at only 5.70 MYR, you can see the large difference in price and why we recommend using the Komuter services..

Booking Tickets :

Advance tickets for these ETS Trains are currently unavailable to book online as it is such a short distance.

You will have to wait to book tickets from Padang Besar Railway Station on the day if you want to use these services (if there are seats still available).

If the ETS Trains are full it is not a problem as you can take the much cheaper and more frequent Komuter Trains.
