These days it is easy to book bus ticket online in Malaysia and Singapore, so all you have to do is show up for the bus, coach or minibus, take your seat and enjoy the ride.
Malaysia's bus terminals can be a rather confusing places for the first time visitor, as there are so many different private bus companies that operate within the country, it is hard to know where to start looking when you first arrive at the bus station.
Many of the larger stations have dozens of ticket booths and of course
you get the sometimes helpful, but often, confusing touts trying to take
you off to this ticket counter or that ticket counter.

In Penang Island there are various pick up points. The most common ones used by tourist are either KOMTAR, Prangin Mall or the Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal.
On the mainland the Butterworth Bus Terminal is right next to the ferry terminal and in our opinion is often the best way to arrive or leave Penang, especially if it is your first visit to the island.
The Butterworth to Penang ferry leaves every 15 -30 minutes during busy periods, and run until around midnight.
Ferry tickets cost only 1.20 RM for the 15 minute journey (you only have to pay one way - to the island. It is free for the return journey).
All, long distance buses to and from Butterworth are usually slightly cheaper, as they do not have to pay the toll to cross over the Penang bridge.
