Taiping to Butterworth KTM Komuter Train Schedule (Jadual)

Taking the Taiping to Butterworth KTM Komuter train is the cheapest way to travel to Penang Sentral where you can then connect to the ferry over to Georgetown on Pulau Pinang, with the duration of the direct commuter train taking just over an hour.

Not all Northern Commuter (Komuter Utara) trains travel directly to Butterworth as some services from Taiping only go as far as the main interchange station for Komuter Utara trains at Bukit Mertajam (BM).

So, for some departures from Taiping, you will have to take the commuter train to Bukit Mertajam, then change trains there for another Komuter Utara train travelling from Padang Besar to Butterworth.
