If you want to travel from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS Bus Terminal) to Alor Setar, most people use the bus. However, you can also use the fast ETS train as the Bandar Tasik Selatan (BTS) Railway Station is located right next to the bus terminal (joined by a pedestrian bridge).
Taking the train is slightly more expensive than travel by bus from TBS to Alor Setar, but is quicker and the railway station in Alor Setar is located close to the city centre, whereas the bus station is located quite a few kilometres away from the centre.
