The KTM Tasek Gelugor Railway Station (Stesen Keretapi Tasek Gelugor) is located on Malaysia's North - South Line in the state of Penang and is served by both commuter trains (KTMB Komuter) and a few of the high-speed Electric Train Services (ETS) which travel between Padang Besar on the Thai border to Ipoh and KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur.
Tasek Gelugor Train Station can be reached by regular and cheaper commuter services (Komuter) that operate between Butterworth and Padang Besar.
