Booking Train Tickets from TBS to Butterworth, Penang

If you want to travel on ETS trains in Malaysia, you have to make a seat reservation.

If you are lucky you may find seats still available on the day of travel, however, trains are often fully booked well in advance during busy periods (holidays, weekends etc).

We would strongly advise you to book your train seats before you arrive at TBS and if you decide to go via KL Sentral, buy your tickets from the BTS ticket counter before you set off for KL Sentral, then if the train is full you can still take the bus from TBS to Penang or Butterworth.

To make an advance booking on ETS trains you can:

Visit any ETS railway station ticket counter.

Or book online via the KTMB website or using an agent >
