If you decide you want to travel by commuter train, you will first have to take one of the Butterworth bound trains, get off at Bukit Mertajam and change trains to Parit Buntar.
Using the commuter services on the trip to P. Buntar is much cheaper, but it will take you much longer as you will have to take the branch line to Bukit Mertajam, then change trains at BM station for the connecting train to Parit Buntar.

Tickets on the ETS Gold services cost:
31 MYR for Adults.
20 MYR for Children.
Tickets for the Platinum service cost:
39 MYR for Adults.
24 MYR for Children.
A ticket on the Komuter services for the same trip will cost you much less at 12.40 MYR if you don't mind the longer journey time.
KTM Komuter train tickets are only available on the day of travel and no advance booking is necessary or available.
Tickets can be purchased from the KTM ticket counter at Padang Besar Railway Station (upstairs near the cafe).
A Komuter ticket does not guarantee you a seat, as these trains are more like subway / tube trains, where seats are lined up along the sides of the carriages and when full, you will have to stand.
If you want to travel on the ETS services, you really should book your tickets in advance as these trains can be full at many times of the year.
Booking advance tickets is easy to do, with KTMB and a number of ticketing agents selling seats online.
