The walk from Butterworth Railway Station or Bus Station to the ferry terminal (Penang Sentral) can be tiring for some with 2 bridges to cross. There is now a free shuttle bus service linking the railway station directly to the ferry fare gates, and from the ferry’s arrival road to the bus station.
Each bus seats 10 passengers, operating at 15 minutes intervals.
The waiting area is just outside the railway station.
Going back, the waiting area for the bus is just on the left when you disembark from the ferry.
The shuttle bus operates from 6am to 9pm daily, every 15 minutes. Priority for the shuttle service goes to those who find it harder to walk between the jetty and the bus terminal or railway station.
