KTM Office in Penang

Where is the KTM Office in Penang Located?

The office is very easy to find.

It is located in Penang Jetty where you catch the ferry from the island to go to Butterworth.

As you walk down from the ferry, the office is in the corner on your left, just as you turn right into the small parade of shops that lead out onto the road.

If you are in Georgetown just catch any bus that goes to the jetty, which is about 99% of all Rapid Penang buses or catch the Freecat city bus, which travels around the old part of town and stops just in front of the jetty bus station.

Just walk up the row of shops / stalls and the office is in the corner on your right, just before you turn left to go up to the ferry.
