KTM Penang Ipoh Train

If you would like to travel on the Penang Ipoh train you have a choice of one Intercity Train a day in either direction to choose from, as well as the new high-speed ETS Trains that have just started on this route.

Travelling by train between Ipoh and Butterworth train station (on the mainland just a short ferry ride from Georgetown in Penang Island), is slower than bus travel if you use the Intercity Trains, but more interesting than just travelling along the highway on a bus.



The new ETS Trains will change all this, with travel time between Ipoh and Butterworth Station down to just one hour 40 to 50 minutes, depending on which service you choose.
