Individual timetables for northbound ETS trains from Sungai Petani KTM Railway Station:

ETS SP to Arau >

ETS SP to Padang Besar >

Please note: If you are travelling north from Sungai Petani by train, it is often more convenient and much cheaper to take one of the more frequent KTM Komuter Utara services (KTM northern commuter trains).

The main difference with these trains is that they are like Tube / Subway trains in the west where seating is arranged along the edge of the carriage and passengers are allowed to stand in the aisle.

These trains can get very busy during the rush hours and during the weekends and holidays, so you are unlikely to get a seat when bording the train at SP station and may have to stand for some or all of the journey.

You can also take these Komuter trains for shorter journeys to the south as far as Butterworth (Penang Sentral) or take the Komuter to Bukit Mertajam (BM) and change there to another northern Komuter route from BM to Padang Rengas in the state of Perak.

ETS Sungai Petani Train Fares

Although ETS train ticket prices are a little more expensive than travelling by bus in Malaysia, ETS trains are a much more comfortable, quicker and a far safer way to travel around the country.

ETS train fares from Sungai Petani vary depending on what type of service you take.

The cheapest option is to take one of the ETS Gold services (train numbers starting with EG).

They are only slightly slower then the Platinum trains as they stop at some of the smaller stations along the route.

The more expensive ETS Platinum services (train numbers starting with EP) offer the quickest trains and also tend to depart at the most popular times of day.

For information about the latest tickets prices to/from SP railway station click here >

KTM Berhad are also introducing Business Class carriages on some Platinum Services if you are prepared to pay a little more for extra comfort and service.

Please note: KTMB have now introduced a new "Flexi Fare" system where train ticket prices from SP vary depending on a number of factors.

These include:

How far in advance you book your tickets (it is now cheaper to buy tickets over 30 days in advance and more expensive if you wait until the last minute - 6 days or less ahead).

The time of year you are travelling in (tickets are now more expensive during school and public holidays).

The time and day of the week you want to travel (it is cheaper to travel from Monday to Thursday and in "off peak hours" than it is to travel over the busier weekend days and in "peak hours").
