KTM Padang Besar to Butterworth Komuter Train Schedule 2022

Since early 2016, there has been a new KTM Komuter Train service from
the Malaysia – Thai border station of Padang Besar to Butterworth in
Penang. These Northern Commuter (Komuter Utara) train services are a
really cheap way to travel around the northwestern states of the country.

This service has replaced all other trains, so is now the only way to travel from Thailand to Butterworth by train (all ETS services from Padang Besar to Butterworth have now been cancelled again from June 2018).

The new high-speed ETS Services is now travelling directly south an d no longer taking the branch line to Butterworth / Bukit Mertajam.
