The KTM Padang Rengas Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Padang Rengas) lies on the KTMB Malaysia West Coast Line in the state of Perak and offers regular Komuter Train Services northbound to Bukit Mertajam and Butterworth Penang, and southbound to Ipoh.
There are also a few ETS long distance services that stop here.
