Bukit Ketri Komuter Trains

Since January 2016, a new KTM Komuter Train service has been in operation running between the Thailand border station at Padang Besar, to Butterworth Penang.

before terminating at Butterworth Station (Penang Sentral) for the ferry over to Georgetown Pulau Pinang (Penang Island).

Heading north, it is just 12 a minute trip to the Thai border.

You can also connect to the other Komuter train route in the north-west of the country, by changing trains at Bukit Mertajam.

Komuter services from here travel from BM to Padang Rengas, stopping at all stations along the route in the following order:

KTMB Bukit Ketri ETS Trains

Bukit Ketri Train Station is no longer served by the fast ETS Trains heading to KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur.

If you want to use the ETS Trains for long-distance journeys, you will now have to take a Komuter service one stop down the line to Arau Train Station.

From Arau, all ETS trains stop here on their journey south to places like Ipoh, KL and Gemas.

If you want to travel further south to JB Sentral in Johor Bahru or Woodlands in Singapore, you will have to change trains at Gemas, where connecting shuttle trains cover the last part of the journey (as this section of track has yet to be electrified).

Booking KTM Bukit Ketri Train Tickets

As commuter train tickets are only sold on the day of travel, tickets for these services can be purchased from the ticket counter at the station for the next departing train.

For ETS trains, it is always best to make an advance booking as seats can get quickly sold out during holidays and weekends.

ETS tickets are easy to purchase in advance.
