From the 1st February 2017, all ETS services will no longer be taking the branch line to Butterworth so you will now have to take the KTM Komuter Trains if you want to travel to Penang Island.

If you want to travel by train from Padang Besar to Butterworth and all places in between (such as Alor Setar, Sungai Petani and Arau), it is much cheaper to catch one of the new commuter (Komuter) trains which leave Pdg. Besar station throughout the day.

If you want to make sure you get a seat, it is advisable to book your tickets prior to arriving at the station and if you plan to travel over the weekend, school or public holidays in Malaysia, we would highly recommend you buy your tickets in advance, as trains can often be full during these busy periods.

If you are in Thailand, this can easily be done online and often works out to be the same price as you would pay at the counter.
