Komuter trains in Malaysia are much like Tube or Subway trains in western countries.

The seats are positioned along the side of the carriages, with a standing area with handrails running along the centre.

There are no reserved seats so it is on a first come, first served basis.

As you will be getting on at the originating station, Butterworth, you should be able to get a seat on this route most of the time.

If you want to travel from Butterworth to Alor Setar by the fast Electric Train Service, you no longer have that choice choice as KTM decided to cancel all of the ETS trains between Butterworth and the Thai border once the Komuter services were up and running.

Buying Tickets

Tickets are only sold on the day of travel, no advance booking is required or necessary.

You buy your tickets from the ticket counter at Butterworth Railway Station only - the ticket office in Georgetown does not sell Komuter tickets, only ETS tickets.

The ticket counter can get quite busy at times, so allow yourselves some extra time and get to the station a few minutes earlier if travelling during the morning / evening rush hours.
